church is always a place of safe harbor in a time of storm. It is our intent
that we remain that safe harbor to as many people as possible as we undergo
Our morning services will still be
broadcast using Facebook live, YouTube, and our website. We invite you to join us at your
regular worship time of 9:30 AM or 11:00 AM.
New COVID-19 Procedures
Following guidance from both the CDC and Governor Beshear’s office, those who have completed their COVID vaccinations for more than 14 days may choose whether or not to wear a mask. All children’s areas will still require masking for both children and adult workers. Also, in consideration of Governor Beshear’s announced June 11th date to end mask requirements for all people and for lifting all capacity restrictions in public meetings, we anticipate no masking requirements and the removal of the red and green dots for the June 13 worship service. Thank you for your cooperation and support as we hopefully near the end of a long hard year.
There is one
more thing we need: volunteers. The new volunteer registry system is very simple. You should have received an
email with a link to the opportunities for
service. Each of the volunteer positions are listed with the dates for
which we need to fill those positions. Click as many dates as you are willing
to serve underneath jobs for which you would like to volunteer. When you are
finished, click submit at the bottom of the page and you are done. The
following is a list of the positions we need to fill every Sunday morning. Contact the office if you did not receive the email, 859.266.1621.
Door greeters are self-explanatory. However, they will NOT
be there to shake hands. Door greeters will maintain a 6-foot distance when
they give arriving worshipers a joyful greeting and direct them straight into
the sanctuary. We will need two door greeters for each service, two from 9:15am
to 9:40am, and two from 10:45am to 11:10am.
Upstairs Guest Central:
We need 2 people to greet visitors and hand out our first-time visitor bags at our Guest Central area. Contact Rich Pannell with any questions.
Downstairs Guest Central:
We need 2 people to greet visitors and hand out our first-time visitor bags at our Guest Central area.
In an effort to minimize contact, each service will have
communion servers who will hand out individual, disposable communion sets.
Using gloved hands, they will hand out communion to each worshiper as they
arrive for the service. We will need two communion servers for each service,
two from 9:15am to 9:40am, and two from 10:45am to 11:10am.
Another new service opportunity will be the camera
operators. This is not a difficult, or complicated task, but it will need a
little bit of training prior to the service. The worship services will continue
to be live streamed at the regular worship hours. The camera operators will
monitor the cameras and occasionally redirect the cameras as activity on the
stage moves. We will need two camera operators for each service, two from
9:20am to 10:30am, and two from 10:50am to 12:00pm.
The projector operators serve in the video room. They are
the ones who make sure the right slides show up at the right time on the
screen. Training is required for this position. If you are interested in
serving in this ministry, please contact Rich Pannell or Larry Bugg.
Video switcher operator:
Since we will be broadcasting with two cameras, we need
someone to monitor the activity on the stage and switch between the cameras at
appropriate times. This volunteer will also be working from the video room and
some training will be required. In a manner of speaking, this person will be
the director of the Sunday morning online experience. We will need one video
switcher operator for each service, one from 9:20am to 10:30am, and one from
10:50am to 12:00pm.
With your help, Tates Creek Christian Church will be a safe, welcoming, and joyful place of worship. Thank you for your continued support for the church and service to the Lord.
