Coronavirus Updates

God’s 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 this crisis.


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:

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.

Communion servers:

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.

Camera operators:

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.

Projector operator:

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.
