  • Those with underlying medical conditions
  • Those who have upper respiratory or flu-like symptoms
  • Those who live with someone with upper respiratory or flu-like symptoms

WEEKEND WORSHIP

Weekend worship will resume indoors at Trinity on Saturday, August 1st according to this schedule: 

Saturday at 5:30 pm

Sunday at 8:00am

Sunday at 11:00 am


One pastor will lead the entire service each weekend. Bulletins will be available for you to pick up on a table in the Narthex.  Hymnals and Bibles have been removed from the pews.  

Nursery care will be suspended until further notice.


ONLINE SERVICE SCHEDULE

We will continue to livestream and will be available on demand on our website and YouTube. 

You can access these services at our website (www.trinityalive.org), 

YouTube (www.youtube.com/channel/UCod-uYRrnlukmV_IfOOdFeA), 

or on Facebook (www.facebook.com/TrinityColumbusLCMC). 



FACE MASKS IN CHURCH

Phase 4 encourages the use of face masks. We do have some additional masks available at the church office. Please let us know if we can help you acquire one.


SOCIAL DISTANCING AT SERVICES

All attendees are encouraged to continue social distancing during worship services. All attendees must be in their seat before services begin. We are allowed to go to 75% capacity (338 people) in the Sanctuary.  Remember, all directives are put in place for the safety of everyone. 


OFFERTORY PROCEDURES

There will not be a regular collection. Instead, upon arriving or leaving the service, please drop your offering in the Locked drop boxes in the narthex. More than ever, we encourage you to make your offering online or via electronic bank-to-bank transfer. Call the office at 402-564-8547 if you would like more information. 


END OF SERVICES

Please do not leave early. Exit your pew towards the outside aisles. Please go straight to your car. Communal gathering in the narthex is not permitted at this time. Again, this will take patience. Remember, all directives are put in place for the safety of everyone. 


DISINFECTING AFTER SERVICES

After each service, a cleaning crew will wipe down all door handles, pews and surfaces with disinfectant. 


RECEIVING HOLY COMMUNION

Holy Communion will be distributed once a month, using the prepackaged materials as we have been. Those with wheat allergies should contact the church office at 402-564-8547 to make special arrangements. 


Anyone homebound who would like to receive communion should contact the church office for delivery of elements. 


RESTROOM FACILITIES

Our main bathrooms are also being renovated! This is exciting, but because of ongoing construction, our bathroom facilities are limited to the two on the north wing. We ask, as best you can, to limit use of these facilities. Please continue to use your face covering in the facility and remember to maintain proper hand hygiene.


RESUMING EVENTS

Groups at Trinity will resume meeting in the church. There will be some guidelines that will be in place to keep people attending the group and the church staff safe. 

  1. There will be a screening process when entering the building for your group. Upon entering the the building each person will be required to be wearing a mask. You will then have your temperature checked by a staff member. (If your temperature is above 100.4 we will ask that you not enter the church building.) 
  2. Food - We ask that each person bring your own personal food. No sharing of food please. 
  3. When in groups of 8+ Masks will be required. Groups under 8 will need to maintain a 6 ft. social distance. 
  4. Groups will be asked to clean and sanitize the area that they use when they are done. 


I realize this is a lot to digest. Thank you for your patience as we adjust to this "new normal". As things change, we will continue to communicate to you via our website, Facebook, postal mail, word of mouth, and during weekend worship. 


Thank you for helping us in this time. Thank you for your patience as we look forward to the day when we can once again give our God thanks and praise without so many procedures.


Many blessings to you and your family,


P. Brandon
