COVID-19: Guidelines & Grants

Guidelines for In-Person Worship

Our Guidelines for In-Person Worship during COVID-19 were developed to support you as you prepare for in-person worship. You may notice that our final version of these guidelines also bears the new logo designed to represent our future conference. We all are in this together as we move into our mission as the Tennessee Western Kentucky Conference.

Safer Worship Grants 

Grants are still available in the Tennessee Conference to support churches in providing a safer in-person worship experience. (Note: Funds for grants in the Memphis Conference are now depleted.) These are supported by the generosity of Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, the Turner Center at Martin Methodist College, and the Tennessee Conference Golden Cross Foundation. 

Until depleted, these funds will be used to help reimburse local churches for expenses related to the purchase of appropriate masks, hand sanitizer, and cleaning supplies (see page 11 of Guidelines booklet above for approved supplies). 

Please take advantage of this support, if you need it, so your church can provide a safer worship experience for those who return to an in-person service.
