This Week's Latest News!

Greetings Pleasant Green Family,

“ Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness." Psalms 29:1 -2 

  • The Joint Board met yesterday to prayerfully discuss the resumption of in-person worship services.  With guidance from the Re-Opening Committee and in light of the continued high COVID-19 infections along with the high positivity testing percentage in our community and state, we prayerfully concluded that it is not yet safe to resume in-person worship services. However, efforts continue to prepare the church building and to fine tune safety procedures for in-person worship including disinfecting the church and providing live streaming of worship services. The Joint Board and Re-Opening Committee will reassess the situation again on September 19. Please continue to pray for CVID-19 victims and the affected families. 
  • In preparation for in-person worship services, the Re-Opening Committee would like each member to complete this  HPGMBC In-Person Re-Opening Survey . (Simply click the link and complete the survey)
  • With the COVID-19 Infections and deaths increasing, it is so very important for us to continue to observe the CDC Guidelines : avoid close contact with those who are sick, maintain at least 6 feet from others who are not from your household, wear face masks when in public (Mandatory in Kentucky and is being extended on a 30 day basis until the spread is under control), wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and leave home only when absolutely necessary.  The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still spreading across the country. It is important to understand as much as possible about the disease to protect yourself and your family.  Click for the KY COVID-19 Dashboard.  You can watch this short video which provides some important information regarding the disease and its symptoms.

2020 Kentucky General  Election Plan

Absentee voting:

In Kentucky, any voter of any age or health condition who believes they are at risk of COVID-19 can vote absentee ballot. Eligibility to vote absentee also extends to voters who are in contact with such vulnerable voters.

For those who plan to use the absentee voting option, Kentucky will be launching an online portal late next week so voters can request a ballot by mail. Ballots can be requested on the portal through Oct. 9.

Mail ballots will need to be postmarked by Election Day on Nov. 3. They will need to be received by Nov. 6, officials said.

Elections officials also said drop boxes will be available for residents to return their ballots if they are concerned about postal delays. County clerks will determine those locations.


The early-voting period across Kentucky will begin Oct. 13. It will also last for three weeks before the election and include Saturday voting for at least four hours.

According to state officials, every county clerk will provide a location for safe in-person voting. State election officials stress that early-voting is not absentee voting. Any Kentuckian can vote early for any reason.

Election Day:

It will be up to county election officials to decide election sites on Nov. 3. Those county officials will have to have their plans approved by the secretary of state and governor's offices.

Voters in each county will see, again, a reduction in polling places. But the state hopes to offset any concerns by requiring each county to set up at least one "voting super-center," much like the Expo Center was for Jefferson County during the June primary.

Anyone from the particular county can vote at the super-center, regardless of precinct.

Voter identification:

Kentuckians who have been unable to get a driver's license or photo ID because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and because their clerk's office was closed, can sign a document explaining these issues and cast their ballot.
