As we regather in person we are still taking steps to encourage safety. The most important safety factor at Faith is that over 90% of eligible congregants are fully vaccinated. Also, air filters in the sanctuary HVAC system have been switched to MERV-13, the front right section of the sanctuary has been designated an area that will require masking and physical distancing, children will still be asked to wear masks when in poorly ventilated rooms, and several activities are still taking place outside. No matter your comfort level or health concerns we hope to provide a safe and meaningful place to once again experience physical community.
Latest Update – 8/8/21
We have recently seen a spike in new cases in Scott County and Kentucky as the Delta Variant spreads. While our vaccination rate is above 90%, the CDC has recently suggested that all people (including the vaccinated) wear masks indoors. Therefore, we are requesting all people, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks when indoors at Faith. We are also moving our Wednesday night dinners outside by the playground and will continue practicing Communion with prepackaged elements. We hope to continue offering in-person study and worship, but will follow the recommendations of local and state health officials.
Update – 6/11/21
The final phase of our Regathering Plan is related to state mandates and CDC guidance. Since those changed last month, we will no longer require vaccinated people to wear masks and we will remove the distancing restrictions in the sanctuary beginning Friday, June 11. We ask that children and other unvaccinated people continue wearing masks.
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.
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
