Trinity's Response to COVID-19 - CoronaVirus

Connected Care

During these uncertain times, we wanted to let you know that while the building may be closed, our Church is open. We are excited about the unique ministry opportunities this challenging time will bring.

Our Covid-19 – Coronavirus Strategy

People First

As people all over the world adjust to a new normal for a time, so does our church here at Trinity and the big C church around the world. We are taking the approach that in this time we are choosing to put people first.  With that in mind, this page will give you all the information you need to do the same. In this uncertain time Trinity is continuing to work to grow the Faith of people in the Michiana community and beyond, be a support to Families, and to bring the hope of an eternal Future, but also a Future beyond this time and current circumstance.

 

Faith, Family, Future.

In-Person Worship

Next Steps 

The time for another shift in our worship life has come. Our outdoor service has been a blessing this summer. With the weather beginning to shift in the next few weeks we are planning to flip-flop our Sunday worship services.

Beginning on Sunday, September 13th we are moving to the following worship schedule:

  1. 8:30 AM Eucharist will be our Sunday INDOOR service. This will also be the time for our online worship on Facebook. It will be traditional/blended in musical format with organ, piano, guitar, vocalists and instruments. 
  2. 10:45 AM Eucharist will now be OUTDOORS.  It will be contemporary/blended in musical format and led by our Worship Team. 

Each Sunday, we will post on Facebook by 8:00 AM the plan for 10:45 AM that day: outdoors or indoors. If the weather is bad you will still have 2 options:

  • Worship Indoors – We will simply move the Eucharist inside at 10:45 AM.
  • Worship Online – We will livestream this service in addition to the 8:30 AM Eucharist.

In-Person Worship Guidelines

We all have an opportunity to serve one another by following the guidelines that have been laid out for a safe and healthy environment for all of us to worship in.

We understand there are several voices out there with different feelings and opinions on guidelines like these, please note we are doing our best to make everyone feel comfortable about returning to worship.

These guidelines were formulated not only on the recommendations for federal and local authorities but by the knowledge and guidance of some of Trinity’s own health care workers.

Finally, these guidelines are fluid and will be updated periodically based on the situation and data that is presented.  

Facemasks Update

All attendees (except for infants and toddlers) must wear face coverings upon entering and exiting the building. During all worship services, masks will be required when singing and may be removed during spoken parts of the liturgy.  On-screen prompts will indicate the proper times to wear and remove your mask. 

Social Distancing

Please remember to interact with others from a distance of six feet, even in the parking lots. The seating arrangement has been designed for this purpose. Please sit one household per available pew; or if it is a larger pew, then 2 households can share a pew as long as they can provide 6 feet for social distance in the middle between them. 

Hand Hygiene

All attendees must use hand sanitizer upon arriving, as well as before and after using the restroom.

Touching Surfaces

To aid our cleaning crews, please keep touching of surfaces to a minimum. All doors will be propped open and all hymnals and attendance cards have been removed from the pews.

Bathroom Usage

Only two people may use the restroom at one time and should maintain social distancing. If the restroom is full, please wait outside and maintain social distancing.

For the complete list of our guidelines and procedures, you can click below.

Outdoor Worship Guidelines

If you plan to come to outdoor worship, here is what you need to know:

  • Please bring your own lawn chairs. When you arrive, attendants will direct you to where to park and then where you (and your family) can sit.  To give you a quick picture, we will have the altar and musicians under the carport. Families will sit in the parking lot near the carport in designated spots marked for distancing. We will park on the outer perimeter of the lot. There will be a small number of handicapped spots for those who can’t walk longer distances. Please tell an attendant when you arrive if you need assistance. 
  • Please dress comfortably. Comfortable clothes, hats, and sunglasses are recommended. You may also want to bring some water and sunscreen and even an umbrella for shade. Face masks are recommended but not required. 
  • What happens if there is bad weather? Each Sunday at 8 AM we will either confirm or cancel this service. We will post on our Facebook page. Please pray for good weather, but if we have to cancel due to bad weather, please:
  • Worship online or watch the 8:30 AM Livestream back on Facebook
  • Attend in person at 10:45 AM

One Mission: Joining Jesus On His Mission Congregation-Wide Study Begins September 20

As followers of Jesus we know that His message needs to be shared, but many times we aren’t quite sure how to do it. Jesus is at work in our neighborhoods, our schools, our places of business…He’s everywhere!  Are we ready to join Him on His mission? Our congregation will be participating in a church wide study based on the book Joining Jesus on His Mission- Becoming an Everyday Missionary by Pastor Greg Finke. We will be reading this book, watching videos by Pastor Finke and his wife, Susan, and will be using a study guide to instruct and encourage us to share the message of hope and eternal life through Jesus. Here’s how we will do it:

This study is a result of the generosity of our people in response to our IGNITE initiative. It is our prayer that every member of Trinity will join us on this journey. Questions? Contact Sue Emmack at sueemmack@trinityL.org

Trinity’s Ignite outreach continues to extend beyond our walls! Several hours of Trinity’s worship services, devotionals, and music are now part of the Inspirational Channel at St. Joseph Medical Center. This channel loops 24/7 on patient room TVs so that patients have access to uplifting, spiritually-encouraging content. Trinity member Bethanne Jackson spearheaded this project, which will be updated throughout the year to include seasonally-relevant services and content.

Attendance Report

Thank you all so much for continuing to participate in our online worship services and Bible studies. Here are some stats on what is happening:

Update 9/03

Thursday, Sept. 3rd, 2020

Dear Trinity Family,

Maybe you’ve heard the phrase, “We are wounded people wounding people.” 

The wounds are really deep these days, aren’t they? The anger and frustration around us is at a fevered pitch and no one seems to know what to do with it. Revenge, blame, even violence have added to the pain. Is there any way to heal? 

Over the next 2 weekends we will talk about the remedy, the very thing that makes us Christians.  Our sermon series is called Heal: Christ’s Forgiveness for our Broken World. 

So whether it is the way our world is unraveling around us or the pain eating us up inside, let’s discover again the healing and reconciliation our Savior can bring!

Here’s a couple of big things that are coming up as we start September.  Please read about them below:

  1. Flip-Flop Sunday (Sept. 13)
  2. One Mission: Joining Jesus on His Mission Congregation Wide Study.

May this be a restful Labor Day weekend for you!

Pastor Mielke

Worship Times this weekend (Sept. 6/7)

Saturday 5 PM –  In the Church

Sunday 8:30 AM – Outdoors in the Church parking lot

Sunday 10:00 AM  – In the Church and Online

*Holy Communion served under the carport from 11:15 – 11:45

Flip-Flop Sunday 

On Sunday, September 13th we are going to do a Flip – Flop to our Sunday schedule for worship.  Our new Sunday lineup will be:

  1. 8:30 AM Eucharist will be our Sunday INDOOR service. This will also be the time for our  online worship on Facebook. It will be traditional/blended in musical format with organ, piano, guitar, vocalists, and instruments. 
  2. 10:45 AM Eucharist will now be OUTDOORS.  It will be contemporary/blended in musical format and led by our Worship Team. 

Each Sunday, we will post on Facebook by 8:00 AM the plan for 10:45 AM that day: outdoors or indoors. If the weather is bad, you will still have 2 options:

  • Worship Indoors – We will simply move the Eucharist inside at 10:45 AM.
  • Worship Online – We will livestream this service in addition to the 8:30 AM Eucharist.

 

A few more things: 

  • Saturday 5 PM and Wednesday 11 AM Eucharists continue as normal.
  • If you are worshipping online with us and would like to receive Holy Communion, starting Sept. 13th, it will now be served from 12:15 – 12:30 PM under the carport. 

Why the Flip-Flop and schedule change? Two main reasons:

  1. Stretching Summer! Outdoor Worship has been such a great experience at Trinity. We want to keep it going as long as possible this fall (even into cool football-like weather). Later morning should give us warmer weather and more light as we get later into the fall. 
  2. We will be starting an Adult Class between services at 9:45 am the following week, Sept. 20th. You will be able to attend this class in person or online. (See more details below).

Chris Chapman and his band will provide live music as we relax and enjoy the friendships of our Trinity family. (If it rains, we will have the following Sunday, September 20th). And yes! Feel free to wear your Flip-Flops!

One Mission: Joining Jesus On His Mission Congregation-Wide Study Begins September 20

As followers of Jesus we know that His message needs to be shared, but many times we aren’t quite sure how to do it. Jesus is at work in our neighborhoods, our schools, our places of business…He’s everywhere!  Are we ready to join Him on His mission? Our congregation will be participating in a church wide study based on the book Joining Jesus on His Mission- Becoming an Everyday Missionary by Pastor Greg Finke. We will be reading this book, watching videos by Pastor Finke and his wife, Susan, and will be using a study guide to instruct and encourage us to share the message of hope and eternal life through Jesus. Here’s how we will do it:

  • Study packets (including the book and instructions on how to access the study videos) will be available at all worship services beginning Saturday, September 5. Cost is $10 per packet. Cash or check will be accepted at worship, or you can order your packet online here https://tithe.ly/event-registration/#/2318984 and pick it up before or after worship services or in the school office from 8am-4pm, Monday through Friday. 
  • You can participate in the five week study by joining a Connection Group, doing the study as a family or a couple, doing the study on your own, or joining in on our Sunday morning in person or Facebook live studies. (Description below) Sign ups can be found here: https://trinityl.org/joining-jesus/
  • You have an in person or online option for a Sunday Bible study beginning September 20 at 9:45am. Pastor Mielke will be leading an in person study in the gathering area and Sue Emmack, along with her neighborhood Connection Group, will be leading a small group experience via Facebook live at the same time. You will be able to interact and comment. 
  • On October 17 and 18, Pastor and Susan Finke will visit us here at Trinity. They will host a conference on October 17 and Pastor Finke will preach at all worship services that weekend.

This study is a result of the generosity of our people in response to our IGNITE initiative. It is our prayer that every member of Trinity will join us on this journey. Questions? Contact Sue Emmack at sueemmack@trinityL.org

Things you can expect when you come to worship: 

  • Indoor Services: Pews are roped off to space us out. Please sit one household per available pew; or if it is a larger pew, then 2 households can share a pew as long as they can provide 6 feet for social distance in the middle between them. 

 

  • Outdoor Service: we mark off places to sit for social distancing, so just bring your favorite lawn chair and join us. 
  • No more sign ups. You no longer have to pre-register for worship via SignUp Genius. Just come to the service of your choice. 
  • You can read more about the services and all of our procedures and updated guidelines on our website

What about Masks? 

We want to sing and we want to be safe! We have finally received and studied the report from the International Coalition on the Performing Arts which studied the effects of singing and how far droplets and/or aerosols which could contain the virus might be projected. It recommends that while singing we should wear masks even when spaced for social distancing (6 feet). We also consulted several medical professionals from Trinity who strongly recommended the same. Going forward here is how we will approach wearing masks when attending an indoor service:

  • General rule: We will wear masks when we sing. When we are listening and speaking they are optional. That should make the time about 50/50 when we need to and when we don’t.
  • Much like we do with “Stand,” “Sit,” or “Kneel,” we will give prompts on the screen when we are asked to wear a mask and when it can be removed, if you so choose. 
  • Please wear your mask when you enter the building and are seated up through the first few minutes of the service which includes singing. After the Opening Prayer, you will have the option to remove your mask during the middle portion of the service until we start to sing again after the homily.
  • Masks are not required for outdoor services.
  • Masks are required throughout our 11 AM Wednesday Eucharist. 

Church Community Services Donations and Volunteering

Many have asked if CCS is still accepting food, bag, and egg carton donations. Yes! They are! They are also collecting empty water bottles with lids.

Go to the food pantry, yellow door. Want to volunteer in person? Contact CCS at 574.295.3673 or volunteer@churchcommunityservices.org

Vine and Branches 

Ladies – it’s our turn! The guys have been gathering for Hebrews for several years- it’s time for the women to have their own group! Vine and Branches is based on John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches. We will meet next on Tuesday, September 8th, at 8:00PM. Email Sue Emmack at sueemmack@trinityl.org to sign up or check our website for more details.

What you can do

In General

  • Stay Home if Possible – Our leaders are asking us to limit our travel and practice social distancing to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus
  • Stay Positive – In uncertain times it is easy to let worry, anxiety, and fear take over our minds and hearts. If you are feeling this way reach out to the church, a friend, or family member for support.
  • Support one Another – During this time of isolation, connection is extremely important. Make a point to contact someone outside your house regularly, whether it is a text, a call, a video, a DM or a handwritten letter, and see how they are doing, catch-up, share about what is happening in your life.
  • Stay connected to Jesus – This a wonderful opportunity to deepen your faith.  We have several digital opportunities listed above, but if you need further support let us know.

If you are sick or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19

  • Symptoms of COVID-19 may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to the virus.
  • Common symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.  Additional symptoms include muscle pain/body aches, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, and GI upset.
  • Stay home except to get medical care, people who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to recover with monitoring of their symptoms.
  • Stay in touch with your doctor, and call ahead before an office visit.
  • STAY WELL HYDRATED!
  • Isolate yourself in your home, away from members of your family. If possible use a separate bathroom from other members of your household.
  • Call ahead before visiting your doctor
  • Wear a facemask if you are sick or caring for some who is ill and cannot wear one.
  • Cover your cough and sneezes either with a thick tissue or by sneezing into your upper arm/elbow.
  • Clean your hands often (soap and water is preferred or a 60% alcohol-based hand-sanitizer).
  • Avoid sharing personal household items.
  • Clean all “high-touch” surfaces every day.

Thank you to Trinity’s own Laura Gillespie, PharmD and the Regional Antimicrobial Stewardship Pharmacist, for consulting with us on this information. Be sure to always consult your physician if you think you are sick.

To Educate yourself

One of the larger issues surrounding the spread of the virus is the spread of anxiety, fear, and misinformation.  To help combat these feelings, we encourage you to stay informed but not overloaded.  Here are a few tips to help with that:

  • The headline is not the whole story, carefully read the article to get the full picture.
  • Consider the source, check the web address or who published the article, is this a source you can trust?
  • Find one or two sources you can trust and stick to those outlets for all your updates.

Below are two links to sources that have credible information about the outbreak. You can also follow them on several social media platforms, or sign-up for email newsletters.

Serve our Essential Workers

Download your Prayer Request Flyer

While many of us stay at home during this time, there are many more who are working in essential roles to keep things going and make the rest of our lives a little easier.  We would like to show them our support and serve them by offering our prayers. Below you’ll find a flyer you can print off, attach to your door, and let essential workers, like delivery drivers that visit your home, know that you appreciate them. If you are still going to work in an essential business post a flyer, if permitted, in your work place or forward to co-workers as an encouragement. The flyer includes a QR code so that these workers can scan it with their phones, give us a name, and if they would like a prayer request. We will then add them to our prayer chain.  Download yours today and show your appreciation for all those working on our behalf during this difficult time.
