Dear Trinity Family and Friends,
We are thrilled to announce that our inside church services have resumed as of Sunday June 21, 2020, Father's Day! To comply with orders from the governor and the Conference, we are implementing a series of strict protocols, in order to provide protection from the Covid 19 virus during the pandemic. The safety of our church family is crucial; we think you will find these rules helpful and easy to work with
Masks are required. People should put on masks in the car and maintain social distancing with non-family members from that point on. We ask that everyone bring their own masks; we will also have extra masks on hand if needed.
Important: Please don't come to church if you are feeling ill or have a fever.
Bulletins will be emailed or mailed during the week; we ask everyone to bring their copy. We will also put a few extra copies in the pews for use on Sunday.
Parking will be as usual.
The main doors will be open, so nobody needs to touch door knobs; no entry through side entrances. Main doors will be closed after service starts if needed on hot or cold days. Greeters will open doors for additional people.
The first pew will be closed to allow extra space from the pastor and worship leader, who will be unmasked when addressing the congregation.
While we won't close off other pews, everyone will be required to maintain the minimum 6' social distancing, unless in the same family.
Hymnals and Bibles will be in the pews. Congregants can sing but will be required to keep masks on. Hymn lyrics will continue to be printed in the bulletin.
Prayer requests and pens will be removed; people will be asked to give their prayer requests verbally.
Hand sanitizer will be in narthex; you may also to bring your own if you wish.
The water cooler will be off limits and covered.
The collection plate will be set out to drop off offerings when coming or going.
Rest rooms will be open, kept clean and hand soap available.
We welcome young people and will have a children's message each week. To ensure the safety of our children, Sunday school will not be held at this time.
Coffee hour is ministry suspended for now; we ask that people fellowship outside after service if desired, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing,
These rules will be adjusted as needed, according to state, Conference and CDC guidelines.
