Welcome to the Trinity family! 

Sunday Mornings at Trinity – Fellowship LITE!

In Morris Hall following worship
 

Things are beginning to feel more and more “normal” at Trinity on Sunday mornings, and now we get to take the next step forward!  Please join us following worship (approximately 11 AM) in Morris Hall for a time of greeting one another, chatting, sharing stories, and just catching up.  It will be such a joy to resume this meaningful weekly time of in-person fellowship!

If you’re wondering why we’re calling it “LITE”, it is because we aren’t yet to a point where we can safely serve refreshments such as coffee and cookies, so please be aware there will be no food or drink provided just yet.  We look forward to the day when that too can resume – but yes, in the meantime, it really CAN be a United Methodist fellowship time even without coffee!  We look forward to seeing you there. 

Reminder: Regarding New CDC Guidance
 
Dear Friends,

Trinity’s Leadership Council has approved a recommendation to more to Phase 2A of our COVID-19 Response Plan.  In light of the decrease in the number of reported cases and the increase in the number of persons who have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, we are relaxing some of our safety protocols that have been in place. 

First, let me say thank you for your patience during the time we were not be to gather for in-person worship and for your willingness to follow the protocols that have been in places since we returned to in-person worship.  It was a challenging period of time, and while the masks have been a nuisance and the physical distancing annoying, your compliance enabled us to safely return to in-person worship.
 
Second, for those who have been fully vaccinated (and at least two weeks have passed since your final shot), you will no longer be required to wear mask and we will not require that you sit physically distanced while in worship or meetings.  Please realize that there will be some individuals who choose, or who must, continue to wear masks and/or be physically distanced.  Please respect the decisions that these individuals make and show the love of God as you greet and worship with them.

Third, we are not the Vaccination Police.  You will not be required to show proof of vaccination in order to not wear a mask.  We are operating under the honor system.

We will continue to provide the live-stream and recorded worship services so that if you are not able to be physically present in church, you can still participate in worship.
 
Beginning June 1st, the Church Office will resume regular office hours.  We will be open Monday through Thursday from 9 AM to 12 Noon.  We would suggest that you call ahead to make sure that no unforeseen circumstance has caused the office to be closed. 

If you would like to read the other details of our Phase 2A response, you can click here.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

Weekly Devotion 3: By Deb Williams

Scripture Reading: Micah 6:8

6:8 He has showed you, O man, what is good and what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to walk humbly with your God.

The good news is that conveners of meetings and events now seek to practice diversity when preparing an invitation list. But, how do we decide which “different” people/cultures comprise the proper assemblage that may be considered appropriately diverse?

Do we look at differences among people as a strength or as a polarizing reason to keep us apart; perhaps to exclude people who don’t look like, act, or think like we do? Differences among us are to be celebrated, not feared (Romans 12:6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.) Being different is not a sickness, it is not a problem to be solved or corrected, it is just different.

How do we move beyond “getting along” to developing and acting on our personal convictions to end the systemic and institutional practices that drive the continuation of poverty, social injustices, educational inequities, and unequal health care?

Prayer: Lord, in your mercy, may we keep justice prevalent in our hearts and minds and integrate these thoughts into action for daily living. Amen
