Coronavirus Update

May 15th

After meeting with our regional Assemblies of God pastors and leaders for the second time this week, we are planning to open our sanctuary this Sunday, May 17th! There will be special distancing factors in place and no children’s church or nursery.

If you want to attend in person a Sunday Service, it is absolutely crucial that you contact us by Email at trinitychuluota@att.net  with an R.S.V.P.  Please include the number of people in your group

This information will help us as we arrange the seating in the sanctuary so that everyone can safely keep a 6 foot distance from one another. It is absolutely necessary for us to comply with state mandated guidelines in order to ensure everyone’s safety.


 

We have gone to great lengths to ensure these guidelines are in place and plan to adhere to them.

Below is a list of some of the things that we have completed in preparation for your attendance.

  • Seating is arranged to keep a 6 foot distance from one another
  • Touchless antibacterial hand soap in the restrooms
  • Hand sanitizer machines have been installed on both sides of the foyer in the front of the sanctuary
  • We will have masks for everyone, if you choose to wear them or you can wear your own
  • Ultraviolet lighting in all the AC Units (Kills 99.9% of germs that pass through the AC units)

March 18th

 The Pastor and the Board of Trinity Assembly convened last night in regard to the Corona virus outbreak. In response to the presidents request, the Pastor and the Board is suspending gatherings of more than 10 people. Beginning Wednesday evening, March 18th, we have suspended all regular, on-site ministry gatherings until further notice.


We are not doing this in fear, but in obedience to our President, CDC recommendations, local authorities and as an example to our community. Working together, our goal is to stop the spread of the coronavirus so it does not march further into our cities. Keeping in line with this recommendation and to prioritize the health and safety of our church family and surrounding community, we will be hosting our weekend services exclusively online. This does not mean we are taking a break from church. We encourage fellowship thru the phone, social private media and make sure to watch the online service together.

 

Please see the below statement from March 14th from Pastor.

Additionally, please watch Sunday's sermon "Imagination - Your Mind" with the link for Pastor’s spiritual message to us about the pandemic.

 

March 14, 2020

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in real-time.

The Bible clearly teaches us about germs and good practice. The Scriptures mentioned not to put unclean food in a clay pot, wash your hands, if you have a blood disease to stay away from others and many other things. Yet at the same time, I want to remind you that, as Christians, we are to respond with faith, not fear. This is a good time for us a believers to stay anchored in the truth of God’s Word.  Let your fearless faith shine as you trust in Jesus!  The scriptures teach in 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  And in Psalm 91:5-7, 10-11 ”Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.  6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.  7 Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. … 9 If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter 10 no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. 11 For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.”

So we declare on the basis of Scripture that every disease, germ, and virus will not hurt us. I cover Trinity Assembly, its members and attendees with the blood of Jesus.

Yet also on the basis of Scripture join us in our efforts by adhering to the following best-practices:

  • Please do not attend If you are not feeling well or are experiencing any symptoms of sickness, please join us on  Facebook.
  • Cover your mouth (with your forearm) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash your hands with both soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds at a time.
  • Keep alcohol-based hand sanitizer and wipes handy.

We are following recommendations from federal and local government agencies, as well as the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In seasons like this, it is important to turn to the word of God more than ever.
