Latest Update – 6/1/21
We are still in the High Vaccination phase of our Regathering Plan. Registration is not required to attend in-person worship and congregational singing is allowed, but masks and physical distancing are still required. Youth and children’s Sunday School classes have resumed and most of our adult classes are also meeting in person now. The church office has reopened to regular office hours (10 a.m.-2 p.m., Monday-Friday). All of our activities are now in person or a virtual/in-person hybrid, with the majority taking place outside to minimize risk and ease us back into gathering face-to-face. We will continue to livestream our worship services on our Facebook page each week.
Last month the CDC issued new guidance and Governor Beshear announced the removal of the mask mandate for vaccinated people in most settings. The governor is also lifting capacity and distancing restrictions on June 11. These announcements are an exciting sign that the vaccination rate is growing and vaccines are working. The final phase of our Regathering Plan is related to state mandates and CDC guidance so, beginning Friday, June 11, we will no longer require vaccinated people to wear masks and we will remove the distancing restrictions in the sanctuary.
Please remember to wash your hands regularly and stay home if you are ill to keep our church family and community safe. Thank you for your continued patience as we glimpse the hope of an end to the pandemic

Ways to help during this difficult time:
Donate food to the SCMS Backpack Program
Scott County Middle School continues to distribute food to hungry families through their backpack program. We have set up donation bins at the McEuens’ (409 E. Main Street) and the Rose’s (168 Carriage Lane) to collect food. These bins will be located in front of the houses from 10 to 4 each weekday. Nonperishable items that are easy to disinfect are preferred. Click here for a list of suggested items.
Financially support our ministry partners
We partner with several organizations that are currently meeting the needs caused by COVID-19 such as Amen House, Elizabeth’s Village, and Church Benevolence Cooperative. You can see who are partners are at the bottom of our About Us page.
Offer assistance to your Faith family
As people continue to feel the pains of isolation and struggle we encourage you to reach out to your church family. Call or send a note to someone in your Sunday School class, someone who sits on the same pew as you, or someone you haven’t heard from in a while. We can get through this together!
