Being the Church During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Mark Johnson | July 15, 2020

I'm sharing the following statement from our CBC Ad-Hoc ReOpening Committee.  It will be updated periodically to provide timely communication or to address any future changes:

Out of extreme caution and concern for the health and safety of the CBC Family and Friends during this unprecedented Covid-19 global pandemic we have endeavored to hold our community of faith together.  We have provided options for virtual worship, Sunday School, and small study groups and discussions.  Weekly services can be viewed at  A list of Zoom meeting opportunities can be accessed at  The private Facebook group page for the church can be found at

Resuming in-person worship at this time poses an unacceptable risk to our church family and friends.

The Ad Hoc Reopening Committee continues to monitor public health official guidance, the numbers of cases of Covid-19 nationally, statewide, and locally.  Since the State of Kentucky’s re-opening phases in late May and throughout June, cases at first plateaued and in the past few weeks have continued to rise, placing Kentucky in one of the majority of states in the US with increasing cases of Covid-19 infection.

Even though we are not gathering at the church building, we are still the church. Our life of faith to worship, pray, give, serve, and care for one another continues.  These are challenging days, but Central’s unique ability to be faithful, resilient, prudent, compassionate, and wise will guide us as we continue to follow Christ through these difficult days.
