In prayerful deliberation with church staff and council executive team, Trinity will cease hosting group meetings and worship until further notice. The building will be closed to visitors. There will be no in-person gatherings including: worship, choir rehearsals, meetings, Lenten soup suppers and conversation, or bible studies. We are in the process of contacting outside groups who use our building so that they can postpone gatherings at this time. If Pennridge School District shuts down, our building will close completely. At this time, staff will continue to work as necessary to keep operations running and may be contacted via email or phone.
While we seek to protect the most vulnerable in our midst and do our part to stop the transmission of Covid19, we continue to be the community of Christ called to love and serve one another. Please contact those who may not have internet or email access. Check in on your neighbors by phone. If you are well, consider offering to pick up prescriptions or groceries for those who are more vulnerable.
We’ve never done this before and we are learning things every day. We simply don’t have answers to all the question right now. (Except, of course, “Jesus!”) We are figuring things out one day at a time. At this time, plan to tune into our facebook page (www.facebook.com/TrinityPerkasie) Sunday at 9:30 for virtual worship in some form. Plan to tune in Wednesday evening at 7:30 for Evening prayer. Watch for announcements of virtual bible studies and devotional moments.
Please keep up your giving to the congregation so that we can continue our life-giving ministries in this time of crisis. Offering can be sent in to the office or use this as an opportunity to figure out online giving from your bank or through Simply Giving. Contact the church if you need help doing this.
With every moment of hardship, God promises new life through Christ. This is a trial for our community but I trust that Christ is bringing us new life in the midst of it all. We have the opportunity to take sabbath time, reconnect with family, remember how to use a telephone to call friends and neighbors and more. Let’s tell our stories of community and hope so that they become louder than the stories of fear and worry. God is with us no matter what!
