Current Plans for Trinity Church PCA Meeting Together
During the Covid-19 Pandemic
The Elders will adjust these plans as the situation in our society changes. Please do give the
elders your input on how to make these better.
Which Ministries Will Meet?
We will meet together for Sunday worship in our building at 9:45 am following the social distancing plans listed below.
Adult Sunday School can meet again at the elders' discretion. We will meet in the worship area practicing social distancing.
Youth will be encouraged to attend the adult class for the time being.
Nursery, Children’s Sunday School and Children’s Church can begin again at the elders' discretion practicing social distancing .
Small groups will continue to meet via Zoom or in person with social distancing as each decides what is best for each group.
None of our interdenominational ministry partners (i.e. Grace Now, McCready, CAP, etc.) have notified us that they are meeting again yet.
AA has begun meeting at the building, but are practicing social distancing, and cleaning all our furniture that they use.
Social Distancing Precautions
If you have a fever or other symptoms of sickness, please stay home.
If you are considered a vulnerable person (i.e. over 60 in age or otherwise vulnerable to illness), please consider if it is wise for you to come. If you do choose to come, you will be welcome.
People will be encouraged to stay 6 feet apart from anyone not their family unit, and not to engage in hugging or shaking hands.
No food will be served in the fellowship time and no fellowship meals will take place.
The water fountain will be open for use with wipes available to wipe it down after each use.
Members will be strongly encouraged but not required to wear masks. Masks will be made available in the foyer for those who don’t have one. If you take a church mask, you will take it home with you. Worship leaders may choose not to wear masks while leading.
We will disinfect the bathrooms and foyer each week.
We will have hand sanitizer available at the entrance to the building.
Doors to the worship area will remain open before, during and after worship, for ventilation purposes.
One greeter will wear gloves and will open the outside doors for everyone; another greeter will tell people where to sit in our new seating arrangement (see below).
Changes in the Worship Service
We have begun using hymnals, pew Bibles and bulletins again.
Offering will not be taken during the service, but an offering box will be set up in the rear of the worship area for you to deposit your tithes and offerings.
Fellowship pads will not be passed. A table will be set up in the rear of the worship area for visitors to give us their contact info or for anyone to write a prayer request for the Tuesday night prayer group.
Worship Team members will lead as they feel comfortable. They will practice social distancing while leading.
The rows of chairs are spaced 6 feet apart.
Please sit together as family units, with one family unit per row.
Family units will sit on opposite ends of each row of chairs alternating down the aisle. The chairs immediately in front of you be unoccupied. Do not sit in the seats covered by plastic.
We will live stream each service on Facebook.
We will have the Lord’s Supper. The person who preps will wear a mask and gloves. The cups will be spaced in the trays so as not to be next to one another. The bread will be cut in slices and put in sandwich bags in the basket. Elders wearing masks and gloves will serve one bread packet to each family unit. Then they will serve the cup. Members will be encouraged to place their used cup in the sandwich bag (rather than back into the tray). A garbage can will be set up in the back of the worship area to put the used sandwich bags in as you leave.
