Dear Church Member,
I did not anticipate writing you so soon after the letter I penned last week but the situation is changing rapidly. Based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and from President Trump, the decision has been made to suspend worship services at Trinity beginning this Sunday. Worship services will be suspended until the end of April when the situation will be reassessed. The decision to suspend worship services is not an easy one to make. It is the right decision, however, in order to protect our community from an outbreak of the Corona Virus.
While we will not be gathering to worship, worship will still be taking place and you can watch the live stream on Sunday mornings at 10:45 on Trinity’s Facebook Livestream. The worship service will include a time of singing led by Mr. Gibson and a time of teaching led by either Pastor Mark or Pastor Nathan. Detailed instructions on how to view Trinity’s Facebook Livestreaming will be posted on the Trinity Website soon. Offerings can be given online, through ‘text to give’ or mailed to the church. Text to Give: 423-301-5010 and on our trinity3e.org website under the “GIVE” tab at the top of the page.
It has been said frequently that the church is not the brick and mortar of the building where we meet. The church is the people. Now is the time for us to prove this. Even though we may not be together physically to worship, we can still be united spiritually as we seek to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please continue to check on one another through calls, text messages and email. If you are senior adult and need help getting groceries, picking up prescriptions or any other needs, please contact the church office. Communication is vital. If you have not signed up to receive emails from Trinity, please do so now. You can sign up to receive emails by visiting the Trinity website, www.trinity3e.org, clicking on the ‘contact us’ button at the top of the page. Then, click on the ‘sign up for emails’ tab and following the instructions. Information will also be published on Trinity’s Face Book page.
Lord willing, we will be able to meet together soon.
In His Name,
