Return to In-Person Worship

Return to In-Person Worship

We are happy to announce that next Sunday, April 18th, we will return to in-person worship in our sanctuary.  Easter Sunday we had a wonderful service on the lawn, but we had huge technical problems webcasting from outside.  Our board has met and reviewed the many issues involved, and has voted now to go back to in-person Sunday School and worship on a regular basis, using all recommended safety procedures.

Bear in mind that this will not be like flipping a switch.  It will be gradual.  There are many people who will still not feel safe coming out for in-person worship, and we will be working to make sure that the webcast is easily available for them.  We will not be having child care or Coffee Fellowship at first.  Go ahead and bring the children to worship, bring a blanket and some toys, we have activity bags for them.  We’d love to have them.  As time goes on, we will organize a new child care team and will announce later when that will start up.  We’ve done our best to keep everything in the century-old building working, but we may run into some problems as we use equipment that has not been used for an entire year.

The six foot social distancing requirement limits the number of people we can seat in the sanctuary.  We will need to seat some folks in the balcony, and if there is a Sunday that we max out, we will be prepared to stream the live service to the screen in the Reich Fellowship Hall and use that as an overflow area.

At first, we will have to limit the amount of singing that goes on.  This is probably the hardest part of COVID restrictions for Moravians, but there is good science behind it.  We will have instrumental music, solos, and limited singing by our choir — wearing specially made “singer masks.”

Easter Worship

Easter Worship

We are excited to announce that we will have Easter worship IN PERSON and ON THE LAWN this Sunday at 11 am. Bring your lawn chair, wear your mask, family groups will socially distance, and all current precautions will be in place. Parents, bring a blanket and toys for the little ones, there will be a special time for them with Pastor John. We expect the weather to be GORGEOUS – in the unlikely event of adverse weather we will be prepared to move indoors, but that is not likely.

NOTE: there will be no Zoom Sunday School class on Easter.

Unity Prayer Watch

Unity Prayer Watch

Next Tuesday, January 12, is Trinity’s turn at the great Unity Prayer Watch. Every minute of every day, a Moravian somewhere is praying for the ministry of the Moravian Church. We have again been assigned the “wee hours” from midnight until 8:00 am.

Please consider signing up for a 30 minute slot — or perhaps splitting a slot with a spouse or friend. Of course, under the current COVID restrictions, we will all be praying at our homes.

You can download a Prayer Guide that will guide you through prayer for all our provinces and ministries. DOWNLOAD HERE.
