Seeking to Keep Trinity Safe - A Task Force to Guide Us Through the Pandemic
The council established a task force who will "help the congregation, council, and staff discern when to re-open Trinity for worship, fellowship, meetings, and other related activities and to develop the procedures we will establish, review, and monitor to keep the members, friends, and visitors of Trinity safe, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.” Those serving on the task force are: Larry Muchow, council president; Raeann Purcell, at-large council member; Paula Losnes (oncology nurse); Larry Schaefer (nurse anesthetist, retired); and Christine Williams (physician with emphasis in public health and pediatrics, retired). We give God thanks that we have such knowledgeable servants of the gospel who are willing to lead us through this challenging time!
We record our worship services earlier in the week so that we have time to upload them, put them into this email, and get them sent out at the proper time. We have not
been including members by name in the prayers largely to protect their privacy since once we put this on YouTube, we have no control as to where this goes or who sees it. Instead, we have been
providing a pause during one of the petitions for you to name those people who weigh heavily on your heart and mind. But, rest assured that we are praying for you! If you have a prayer concern, do
not hesitate to contact me and I will get that information out to our Prayer Chain leaders to distribute (with your permission, of course). firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your generosity as we are developing new ways of doing ministry together!

In the coming weeks you will be receiving a call from one of our TLC Callers (Trinity Loving Care Callers). These volunteers will be calling every couple of weeks to check-in with all of our households to see how they are doing during the pandemic and to keep them in touch with the congregation. They will also ask to see if you need a phone call from the pastor, or have a specific prayer request (to share with our
