RE-OPENING PLAN

Dear Trinity Family,




CONSIDERATIONS

Despite the resumption of services, there is no obligation to attend if you do not feel comfortable. We also encourage the following people should remain at home for the time being:

  • The elderly
  • Family members who live with elderly people or those who are at risk
  • 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
  • Those with COVID-19 or live with someone with COVID-19 who have not been quarantined for 14 days.
  • Those who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and have not quarantined for 14 days.
  • Those who have been tested for COVID-19 and are waiting for results

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. We will utilize projection for the services and and the pews will have the cushions returned . Hymnals and Bibles have been removed from the pews. We are hoping to begin Sunday classes for adults, children, and youth until August 23rd. 

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 3 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 50% capacity (225 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 401-564-8547 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.


EVENTS CANCELLED

With the exception of services, all other events, meetings, and gatherings at the building are pending at this time.


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
