COVID - 19 Resources
Message from Pastor Bryson as of May 28, 2021:
I am delighted to report that Larimer County's COVID rates have dropped to a point where we can make masks optional for vaccinated people. Unvaccinated people, immunocompromised folks, and children are still asked to wear masks while in the Church building or are urged to attend worship online.
While we are making masks optional, we still encourage vaccinated people to bring one and use it when interacting with unvaccinated members and guests. We need to do whatever we can to help others not feel maligned or left out. Vaccinated or no, everyone is equally loved by God and equally welcome in worship! To better help families with unvaccinated kids attend, we are setting aside the front pews on the south side of the sanctuary. This area is close to a ventilation window, and plenty distant from most attendees. The upstairs Cry Room will also be a mask less family zone. Beyond these changes, TUMC will no longer use specific entrances and exits for worship. General movement around the church is no longer mandated by directional signs. Lastly, the main floor lady’s room is now open for use, but we still ask for no more than one occupant at a time.
Please know, while we are making these changes, all other protocol remain in effect (see below). I am here if you have questions! Feel free to contact me. Hope to see you in worship soon.
In Person- Sundays @ 10am
Trinity UMC 10am service is a shorted, socially distanced experience. It includes the following precautions:
Attendees maintain social distances of 6ft when at all possible on Church Property.
Masks or facial coverings are optional for vaccinated people. Unvaccinated people, immunocompromised folks, and kids under 12 are asked to still asked to wear masks n the building.
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 in an at risk category, yet are healthy and chose to attend worship, that is up to you.
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 Tutorial Video below. Our Relaunch Policy is available in the "COVID-19 Policies and Other Information" section.
