Greetings, Church Family!I pray this message finds you safe, healthy, and well.I want to reach out today, first of all, to say thank you to all who join us for worship and discipleship week after week via CBC: Unplugged. We are grateful for your faithfulness and your commitment to maintaining your connection during these difficult times.
In March, I had no idea how long the pandemic would last, and in July, I could not imagine the number of positive cases and deaths that are being reported around the nation. Yesterday, there were 2,342 new cases of Coronavirus in Kentucky, and 18 deaths. In Lexington, there were 255 new cases of Coronavirus reported Wednesday and 189 new cases reported yesterday. Seven of Lexington's highest one-day totals have been reported in November, and the total number of cases and deaths in Lexington since the pandemic began are 13,279 and 103 respectively.
As I stated before, your health is always our primary concern. Please adhere to Governor Beshear's mandate and wear a mask whenever you are in public and ensure that your nose and mouth are completely covered. I also implore you to wash your hands often, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unclean hands, maintain a safe social distance from others when you are in public, clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, and stay home as much as possible.
If you feel sick or you have been around someone who has tested positive for the Coronavirus, please get tested at one of the sites below as soon as possible. You do not need an appointment, and there is no cost to you.
Testing is also available at Walgreens on Executive Drive, five Little Clinics, three Urgent Care Centers, and two CVS locations in Lexington. However, an appointment is required.
I pray that you have a great week, and I look forward to sharing with you in the days to come! We will get through this together!
With Pastoral Care,Pastor G.
