Trinity CoB reopening letter
Greetings Brothers and Sisters: We are contacting you about the reopening of our church. I hope that all of you are well and have been well throughout the “stay in place” time frame. The leadership of the church has had a couple of meetings about how to reopen our church for worship and the following list is what we are going to do for the safety of all involved. We are considering the recommendations of both the district and CDC.
We are reopening on June 7th, 2020. Please join us for worship if you feel comfortable gathering together in our sanctuary. The service will be videotaped and posted on the website so that you may still enjoy worship from home if so desired.
Areas marked off with caution tape are closed and should not be used. This includes the kitchen, so people attending service should bring their own water to drink.
We are asking everyone to wear a mask, if you are able and gloves, if desired. We have a limited supply of masks and gloves at the church.
The handicapped bathroom under the stairs will be open for use; the other bathrooms will be closed. Sanitizing spray will be provided to use after the use of the bathroom. Spray all surfaces that are touched.
We are only gathering for worship; we are not currently having Sunday school. Worship will begin at 10:30 am.
The doors will be opened at 10:00 am, please go from the entry to your seat. Designated seating areas will be marked with a bulletin. We are doing our best to maintain a safe distance from each other. Please sit in the seats that have bulletins placed in them, and only in those places. Bring your own Bible. All hymnals and Bibles have been removed from the sanctuary.
For the first month, we will not be singing together. We will use either recorded music or have something played by our musicians.
Joys and concerns should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or texted to the pastor at 937-570-6675. We are not going to be passing the microphone around for sharing during service.
Everyone coming to service needs to check their temperature before service. If you have a temperature, stay home. If you don’t feel well, stay home. This is for everyone’s safety.
We look forward to seeing you all and worshiping our Lord together. Call Pastor Arnold or Cathy Clayton if you have any questions. God’s peace and grace to you all, Trinity Leadership & Pastor Arnold Collett
