Are masks required for in-person worship?

On Thursday Governor Beshear issued an executive order mandating the wearing of a mask in most retail locations and “indoor public places where it is difficult to maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from all individuals who are not a part of that person’s household.”
 
While we are fortunate to have plenty of space allowing ease of maintaining more than six-feet of physical distance we believe it is prudent for us to require masks in our lobby space before entering the auditorium in order to do our best to help limit the spread of Covid-19 and ensure the safest environment possible for all in-person attendees.
 
Therefore, we will be asking all in-person attendees to wear a mask when entering the building until you have arrived at your seat in the auditorium.  At that point masks may be removed.
 
For those arriving without a personal mask of their own, our greeters will have disposable masks available at the door.  No one will be turned away.
 
Additionally, as has been the case since our reopening on June 14th, all of our greeters, ushers and other service personnel will continue to be required to wear a mask and gloves.  Multiple hand sanitizer stations and disposable masks will continue to be available as well as our process of thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing our gathering space.
 
Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility as we do the necessary things to continue accomplishing our mission of helping people find and follow Jesus.
 
See you in-person or online this Sunday!

Executive Minister
