BCBC Response to new CDC/Government Guidance (5/14/21)
From our Pastor…
…(This week) the CDC announced new guidance that said that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear masks indoors. Shortly thereafter, Governor Beshear announced that the state of Kentucky would immediately adopt the new CDC guidelines. Therefore, since the mask mandate has been relaxed by our government officials, Boone’s Creek Baptist Church will no longer require masks for our worship services and activities. With that said, I do understand that the mask mandate has only officially been lifted for those who are fully vaccinated. I know that many of us, myself included, have received the vaccine, however, I have no interest in policing whether or not an individual has received their vaccine. Therefore, I simply ask that you each make a wise decision and continue to act in submission to our government authorities and with love toward your neighbor. If you feel that it is in your best interest, and in the best interest of those around you to continue to wear a mask, please continue to do so….

Boone’s Creek Baptist Church was organized in 1785 by Elders John Talyor and John Tanner with 18 original members. Prominant among the founders were Daniel Boone’s brother Samuel with wife Sarah. We remain a beacon for for Christ and sanctuary for the sinner some 235 years later.
From the forward of our Church History documented for our bi-centennail in 1985:
Histories are written by the people who live them, and are recorded by those who wish to learn from the experiences of their forebearers something about the legacy they have inherited. Those persons who are members of Boone’s Creek Baptist Church in its 200th year can take comfort in the knowledge that theirs is a rich tradition, made so by the faith, determination, courage, and character of those who passed this way since 1785. While the church has certainly had its tedious times and moments of contention, the Lord has never left its side, and it stands today in this community as a monument to what the will of God can do when His people accept that will and follow his pathway.
