COVID-19 Response

(updated November 15, 2021)

At FCC, we see part of living out Jesus’ call to love our neighbors as ourselves as the primary motivation in how we are a part of the communal effort responding to the COVID-19 virus.

Here are our current policies and practices:

  1. Anytime Scott County is in the “red” or “orange” designation for high or substantial rates, everyone (vaccinated and unvaccinated) is expected to mask the entire time while in the building for indoor worship in the sanctuary or any other group gatherings or meetings. We’ll have extra masks at the entrances if you forget yours and signage to remind you to mask if we are in the “orange” or “red”. (Scott County’s current status can always be found here as well:
  2. Worship- We are practicing congregational singing and are not passing communion or offering trays. Instead, you can pick up pre-packaged communion on your way into the sanctuary (all are welcome to participate in communion) and drop your offering in the box at either sanctuary entrance. Since there is extra distance from the seating and platform/communion table areas, those leading worship can unmask when speaking if they chose to do so.
  3. We continue to offer our worship livestream at 11:00 at
  4. Nursery- We are now offering nursery care for children 4 and under. Per CDC guidelines, children 2 and older will be masked and all nursery attendants will be both masked and vaccinated. We will not be serving a snack at this time to avoid children having to unmask.
  5. Children- Children older than 4 are invited to sit with their parents during worship. Worship activity bags are available on the pews in the back of the sanctuary. Our Children Worship & Wonder program will resume sometime in early 2022.

If you have further questions, please contact us in the church office at 502-863-2049 or me at We’re grateful for your continued flexibility, engagement, and adjustments as we seek to love our neighbors inside and outside our congregation.

Grace and peace,
Chris Cash, Senior Minister
