Current Plans for Trinity Church PCA Meeting Together After the Covid-19 Lock Down
These plans are to be in place through October. The Elders will meet on Oct 17 to adjust these plans as society continues to open up and the virus continues to subside.
Information items which have changed since the last plan are colored blue.
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 meet at the building. 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 will be offered with social distancing protocols.
Small groups will continue to meet via Zoom or in person with social distancing as we have been doing.
None of our inter denominational 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.
Families will be encouraged to stay 6 feet apart 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 encouraged but not required to wear masks. Pastor Curt will not wear a mask while leading worship or preaching, but will do so otherwise. Masks will be made available to those who don’t have one. If you take a church mask, you will take it home with you.
We will disinfect the bathrooms and foyer each week, using cleaning products directions.
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.
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.
Changes in the Worship Service
We have begun using hymnals, pew Bibles and bulletins.
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. Those that do will practice social distancing while leading.
Rows of chairs shall be moved 6 feet apart.
Family units will sit on opposite ends of each row of chairs alternating down the aisle. The row immediately in front of you will therefore not have anyone sitting in front of you.
We will live stream our services via an I Phone on Facebook.
We will have the Lord’s Supper. The person who preps will wear a mask and gloves. The cups will be placed in 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 the cup in the sandwich bags once used and not back into the trays. A garbage can will be set up in the back of the worship area to put the used sandwich bags in.
