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.
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.

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