The Trinity Church leadership teams have been diligently working on keeping our health and safety the #1 priority, and any of us who want to worship and meet together have “promises to make” to our church family to respect and keep others healthy and safe.
Please read through these promises. If you have questions, please contact Pastor Cherie or our CLC chair, Cindy Noe.
Once you and your household have agreed to share in our covenant agreement, you may continue to make your reservation for this worship service on the next page.
We, the people of God at Trinity Church-United Methodist follow Christ’s command to love our neighbor. As an expression of love for our neighbors, including our church family, we promise to place one another’s health first, by taking precautions as we open our building for public worship, learning together, and other reasons for meeting together. We recognize that while some of us may be asymptomatic, other times COVID-19 causes people to lose their lives, especially in at-risk populations. We also recognize that we may need to ‘pause’ worshipping in-person, if our congregation experiences an outbreak or conditions in our area indicate a need for greater caution.
These precautions are based on the best information that we have now. If more information becomes known, we will incorporate new information into these promises:
To support you, Trinity greeters will run a temperature scan on all persons entering the building for worship, and ask people who have a fever to return home to care for their health.
To support you, Trinity greeters will offer you a face mask if you do not bring one. Please choose a disposable mask if you seldom wear one, or a cloth one to keep if you need one to wear to church. They will also direct you to the hand sanitizer station.
To support you, Trinity ushers will help you find a seat in the sanctuary that will mean you will be able to maintain a safe physical distance from others. Trinity ushers will also help direct people in and out of the sanctuary, to maintain safe physical distancing.
We acknowledge that all of us wish ourselves back to the time before the pandemic, when we took the ease of our familiar worship services for granted. We ask your patience, your help and grace in these efforts to put care of all the people of our community first, as we take this opportunity to gather for worship, learning and building relationships together.
