COVID - 19 Resources
Message from Pastor Bryson as of 7/12/2020:
The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed everything. As the world seeks to reopen, it's becoming increasingly clear, things will never be the same. This, regrettably includes Trinity UMC. Please see the current situation of our faith family in the section below. It will help you connect with us in order spread the Good News to the Loveland community. As different as things may be, God's hope remains undiminished. Help us show the world that grace wins out! For any questions, contact me or the church office. Blessings!
In Person- Sundays @ 10am (Date TBA)
Before the end of summer, Trinity UMC will have a shortened, socially distanced Sunday morning worship experience. it will include the following precautions:
There will be separate entrances and exits to the TUMC facility.
Attendees will maintain social distances of 6ft when at all possible on Church Property. Masks or facial coverings must be worn while in the building. There is to be no bodily contact (hugs, handshakes, etc.) between people.
Those who have experienced COVID symptoms, or who have been exposed to someone with symptoms in the last week, will refrain from entering the building.
All who follow procedures are welcome to attend worship. Those aged 60-65 or older, or who are immunocompromised, are invited to join us digitally. If you are healthy or chose to attend worship, that is up to you. (see the tutorial video at the ____ mark for a more detailed explanation)
To limit the potential exposure window, worship will be shortened to 30-35 minutes. The gathering will be livestreamed and available online as it is happening.
Children are welcome in worship as long as they adhere to protocol. Regrettably, we are not allowed to have in person family activities for the time being.
There are many other regulations in place. Please see the COVID Relaunch Guidelines below.
