We are happy to announce that we have returned to indoor worship in our Sanctuary. Click on the link below to see how we are working to keep our congregation, staff, and community safe while working towards a return to normalcy.
We are working diligently to be sure that our guidelines are in line with recommendations from our government, the CDC and our local health department. Check back regularly for updates.
A Note From our Council President
A Return to “Normal” (with Caveats and Caution)
We continue our pursuit of “normal”. With the advent of Fall, we welcome back some “normal” activities. Choir and Sunday School return in September!!!
We can’t wait to hear the voices of our choir members combining to provide us with beautiful music. We have so missed being serenaded during worship. We are blessed to have such dedicated choir members under the direction of Janis Bondurant – our wonderful Minister of Music. How fortunate we are to have them share their gifts of music with us.
Also, there is Sunday School. How much we have missed gathering in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday mornings for Bible Study, conversation, reflection, sharing, fun and fellowship. How thankful we are to Bob Holden for his efforts in planning and leading our Sunday School sessions. If you have not participated in Sunday School before or just want to start a new positive post-Covid habit, I encourage you all to join others from your church family for Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. every Sunday.
I mentioned a return to “normal” with caveats and caution. We are beginning to feel a resurgence of Covid and especially the Delta variant in our community. Covid is still preventing us from returning to our pre-Covid church life. We are still not gathering at the Communion rail for communion. We are still not touching when we share the peace. We are still not holding hands when we pray the Lord’s Prayer. We are not gathering in Fellowship Hall for meals. All things that we deeply miss. But, let us not think about what we don’t have or are not able to do – let us focus on what we do have and are able to do.
We give thanks that we are able to gather in the sanctuary for worship every Sunday – – we are able to hear the word spoken and preached. We are able to pray and sing together. We are able to communion together. And we are able to see and care for each other. God’s church at Trinity and our church family are together!! What a blessing it is!!
We are strong, and we continue to move towards “normal”. If we are all diligent and take precautions to protect ourselves and other from Covid – get vaccinated, wash your hands, wear masks, socially distance – we can and will return to “normal” much faster. We can all do our part.
Stay strong, stay healthy and stay safe.
Thanks be to God.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NRSV
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”
