One of the most asked questions is “Are we requiring masks”? The answer is that masks are not required, but we certainly welcome people to wear their masks. We also encourage people to be especially respectful of those who are wearing masks by either masking themselves or maintaining social distancing (6 feet distance) when interacting with them. The tables and chairs have been set-up to help encourage proper distancing. There are 5 chairs at each table. We are encouraging people to remain at their table once they have settled at one. For larger families, chairs can be added to a table, the ushers are available to help with that if needed. For those that wish to attend and would like to avoid busier areas, the back of the has additional social distancing in place to provide the opportunity for those that wish to be at

Re-opening Building

As Trinity starts re-opening the building for limited gatherings, we strive to do so in responsible, respectful and safe ways: • Properly spacing a limited amount of seating throughout the building. • Identifying exits and restrooms for each small group of attendees. • Providing hand-sanitizer and disinfectant wipes. • Cleaning and sanitizing the facility between uses as appropriate. • Establishing specific rooms and spaces for use at each meeting. We encourage anyone joining us for services to do so responsibly: • Bring a face mask to wear as appropriate. • Maintain proper distancing and social spacing. • Stay home if you have a cough, fever, or other symptoms. • Wipe down your table and chair with a disinfectant wipe as appropriate. • Keep yourself and your family contained to your seating area. • Leave furniture and electronics where they are currently set. Our first and highest calling as disciples of Jesus Christ is to LOVE GOD with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength; and to LOVE OTHERS as ourselves. The rule of LOVE continues to guide our plans and practices for re-opening the facility at Trinity.


Online Service

We will continue the 6:00 PM live Saturday night service during our time of staying at home. Each week there is a time of worship and Pastor Paul with varying guests joining him for panel discussions. You can watch live or archived videos on our sermon site by clicking on the sermon link of our website.


Generations 2020

The theme this year at Trinity is Generations 2020! Join us each Sunday to lean into what God has called the generations of this age to be!
