Church Closed While Our County is in the Red

At the recommendation of our church’s re-opening task-force, I am suspending in-person worship anytime Pulaski county is labelled in the red by the Lake Cumberland District Health Department, based on the Wednesday report. We will notify you on Thursday each week via Facebook, our church-wide email, and this site whether there will be in-person services that Sunday. We have decided to make the decision a few days in advance so that as many people as possible will receive the news before Sunday morning. As always, we will continue to stream our worship services on Facebook, Youtube, and this site, and encourage all those who feel unsafe attending in-person to worship with us virtually.
I know this is an additional inconvenience on top of a mountain of inconveniences. As always, I’m grateful for the trust you all have put in our church leadership as we try to faithfully navigate this pandemic. Like you, we are looking forward to the day we can truly be together again. Until then, know that you are all in my prayers. I love you all.
-Pastor Chris
