Update: April 2, 4:05pm
As the days in isolation wear on, for some the fear grows. For others, loneliness creeps in. Parents and guardians struggle to keep young children entertained and older teens from driving each other crazy. However this trying time is affecting you, we encourage you to reach out to your community. Check in with the folks who share your pew, write a letter to someone you enjoy chatting with at coffee hour, or pick up the phone and call someone who may be lonely. As we'll say over and over in this time of isolation we are the church. By now, you may have watched several videos - both live streamed and pre-recorded - on Facebook. For some that comes more naturally than others. If you're having trouble finding the live daily TrinityConnect services on your smart phone, click here to watch a quick video. If you're unable to find it on your desktop computer, click here for step by step instructions. If you haven't watched yet, join us Monday through Saturday at 11:00am on our Facebook page for live and interactive prayer. Sunday services are pre-recorded through Easter and will be posted on our Facebook page and website. We continue to post updates to our Facebook page and website. Check in regularly to learn what's going on in our community and look for activities for adults and children & youth. Especially we we move in to Holy Week, keep an eye out for posts to enrich your spiritual lives. We are dedicated to helping our church family move through this difficult time with our support, whether that means Christian Formation, Pastoral Care, Online Activities or Conversation. With restrictions placed on gatherings at the city and state levels, we have made the decision to cancel our campus workday. It is not worth it to risk a single life. While it's disappointing, and to some it feels unnecessary, we would rather err on the side of caution than regret a single decision we made through the course of this crisis. Palm Sunday is this Sunday! While we'll all miss our annual walk around the church confusing passers by, you can still join us for stunning music and a wonderful sermon. Click here to go to our Stations of the Cross page where you can find the supplies you'll need to do interactive stations in your own home, or find instructions on how to make your own palm crosses at home. Click here to sign up for Virtual Agape Dinners hosted online by parishioners and visit our Holy Week and Easter Page to learn more about the events of the week, including Watch Through the Night.
We may not be together in person, but we are certainly with you in spirit. Please use the links below to let us know what you need or who you can help as we continue to Be the Church.
