What to Expect When We Gather for Inside Worship
We long to get back to church, the place and the people who mean so much to us. We want to sing, laugh, and pray together and enjoy the sweet fellowship of God’s family. Our plan for Trinity is to meet for worship in our Sanctuary Sundays at 11:00am. beginning October 4. We hope you’ll feel at home when you return to church, but also be prepared for your Sunday experience to be different in several important ways.
Entrance: Enter through either the Council Street doors or the doors at the covered walkway. Other doors will be locked.
Wear a face covering. Health professionals tell us that one of the most loving things we can do for others is to wear a face covering in any situation in which we might spread the Covid-19 virus. Please wear a face covering from the time you leave your car until the time you return to it. Masks will be available at the entrances for those who might forget to bring one.
Sanitize your hands. Hand sanitizer is provided at all entrances. Disinfect your hands as you enter the church to reduce the risk of spreading germs.
Sit in the designated seats in the Sanctuary. If you will sit in an area marked by green tape, you will maintain the recommended distance from other worshippers.
Plan to worship with your children. We cannot provide the nursery or children’s church on the first couple of Sundays back. Prepare to share the worship service with your little ones.
Exit as directed. At the close of the service, an usher will come to your pew and tell you when your turn has come to leave the building. Dismissing in an orderly way will prevent overcrowding in the aisles and vestibule. Please go directly to your car when you exit the Sanctuary.
Give your offering as you leave. We will not receive the offering by passing offering plates until the Covid-19 concern is behind us. You may place your offering in a plate as you leave the Sanctuary, mail your offering to the church, or give online (www.trinityumcsumter.org).
Continue to worship at home if that is best for you or try the outdoor worship service. We will continue to share our worship services through Facebook, the radio, and rebroadcast on FTC and YouTube. We will continue to worship outdoors on the Council Street lawn at 830am for the foreseeable future. If your family and physician recommend that you continue to avoid public gatherings, please allow us to bring the worship service to you.
