COVID-19  Update

          The Covid-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on churches throughout our nation.  The fear and uncertainty surrounding the virus had many people afraid to attend worship and be around other people.  With governmental stay at home orders and the constant warnings of the danger of interaction with anyone outside your own household, many were scared to death of contracting the virus.  Sadly, these conditions lasted a lot longer than anyone expected.  

          We began this ordeal on March 13, 2020 with an executive order from governor Beshear ordering the closure of all churches, schools and most businesses.  The pandemic and uncertainty of its virulence kept us shut down for three months.  After developing the needed safety protocols and securing the necessary protective equipment, we resumed in-person worship on June 14.  The plans and safety procedures we developed worked well and everyone was really glad to resume worship in person.  Things went well until the number of new cases diagnosed in central Kentucky began to rise dramatically in October.  The numbers in Taylor county continued to rise, indicating that the virus was now more prevalent than ever.  We made the difficult decision to again suspend in person services in November in order to reduce the possibility of our members contracting the virus since many of our them are in the highest risk group for infection.  

          We had only virtual worship throughout the winter, but were finally able to return to in-person worship on March 14, 2021.  Everyone was certainly glad to be able to worship together again and we have seen a steady rise in attendance as more people are vaccinated and feel more secure in resuming a more normal lifestyle.  We continue to provide a live-stream of our Sunday morning service on Facebook each Sunday. 

          We invite you to come and visit with us in person on Sunday mornings at 11 am for worship.  You will hear familiar hymns of the faith, a message of hope from God’s word, and receive a warm welcome from people who truly love God and other people.  We provide a safe environment for everyone attending our services by continuing to sanitize and disinfect our facilities each week.  We are committed to providing a place for God’s people to worship Him without fearing for their safety.  Again, we invite you to join us.  We would be glad to have you.
