Re Opening Church
Here are some things to know about our reopening for in-person Worship on September 20th:
We will continue to record our Sunday Service and post it as we are doing
currently, because we know that there are many who will not be able to attend.
When you come to Trinity:
- you will be asked to park in every other space in the parking lot.
- you will find that the building has been professionally cleaned to begin our reopening with utmost safety.
- entry will be ONLY through the Social Hall door.
- you will need to wear a mask or use one available at the door.
- social spacing will be observed at all times.
- your temperature will be taken and condition reviewed by a check list of
- hands free hand sanitizer dispensers will be available at the door and in the sanctuary entrance. (one at each location)
- seating in the sanctuary will be in every third pew, using only the ends of
the pews, with only members of the same household seated together.
- there will be no bulletin handed out, nor hymnals, nor Bibles available.
(you may wish to bring your own Bible). The Service and all words needed
will be on the screen at the front.
- the emphasis will be on saying – not singing.
- the Service will be planned for 50-55 minutes and will be rather
informal, adapting our usual format to allow for more sharing and
- the offering will be received in plates at the door as you leave.
- The bathrooms (with newly installed ac/heating units) will be available
for use one person at a time.
- all “touch areas” will be cleaned between the time the Service begins
and when we exit.
- we will exit ONLY through the Social Hall doors.
