In-Person Safety Guidelines

Therefore “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” (Phil 2:3-4).

We will gather with two services, in the Sanctuary at 9am and in the Family Life Center (gym) at 10:30 am.

  • VACCINATED? According to the CDC guidelines, masks are no longer required for those who fall into the "Fully Vaccinated" category but recommended in large gatherings.  
  • UNVACCINATED? The CDC recommends that you continue to wear your mask in the building at this time.
  • FAMILY TABLES: We will continue to provide tables in the gather space for use by our families with young children who do not attend our Trinity Kids Nursery or Classrooms just yet. 
  • HAND WASHING: Hand Hygiene is ALWAYS a good idea! Please continue to wash hands frequently with soap and water.  Hand sanitizer is also readily available at our entrances and throughout the building. Hand washing and gloves are a practice for all event staff and volunteers.
  • NOT FEELING WELL?  We ask that if you are sick or have symptoms, that you not come until you are well.  Touchless Thermometers are available at our Connections Desk. Worship with us ONLINE and join groups via Zoom if you can.
  • TRINITY KIDS: Trinity Kids are not required to wear masks at this time. Masks are available at the check-in desk. Frequent handwashing, and cleaning of surfaces are done regularly.
  • GIVING STATIONS - You will see our giving boxes as you enter the gym and in place of passing offering plates.  We encourage you to give online if possible. It's SO easy!
  • CLEANING: Our clean-up crew is committed to disinfecting all common-use objects and areas.

Frequently Asked Questions:

- What do I do if I am exposed to COVID-19?

If at any time you are exposed, the current CDC Guidelines are as follows:

a. If you test positive for COVID (regardless of vaccination status), please don’t attend a church event for at least 5 days after your test. For the next 5 days after that, please wear a quality mask if you choose to attend. Our hope is that you will rest, recover, and rejuvenate!

b. If you develop symptoms that could be from COVID, please don’t attend a church event. Once a negative test shows that symptoms are not from COVID, feel free to rejoin in person! If you return while still showing symptoms (e.g., you have a cold), recognize that others might misinterpret your symptoms or express concern. You might consider wearing a mask, and please be patient with others as you note that you’ve tested negative!

c. If you've been exposed to someone with COVID but have been boosted or vaccinated in the last 6 months (2 months for Johnson & Johnson), you do not have to quarantine from church events if you have no symptoms. But please wear a mask if you attend an event within 10 days of the exposure.

d. If you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID and are unvaccinated or your vaccinations were over 6 months ago (2 months ago for Johnson & Johnson) and you haven’t had the booster shot, please refrain from attending church events for at least 5 days! If possible, get tested after 5 days, but regardless we do ask that you wear a mask for an additional 5 days if you come to church events.

- Do I need to notify anyone at the Church if I've been exposed?

We ask that you would please notify the church office at (734) 459-9550 if you have both 1) tested positive for COVID, and 2) attended a church gathering within 5 days of positive test result, so that we can take appropriate action. We will not share your name or personal information with anyone, but we may, if appropriate, contact groups who were exposed for an extended time to inform them of a potential exposure.

- Will someone contact me if I've been exposed to someone at a church event?

To the best of our knowledge, if we become aware that you have been potentially exposed to someone with COVID, and within 6 feet for longer than 15 minutes in a 24-hour period, you will be notified.
Bottom line: Our hearts ache to gather and worship with you again.  These measures may seem like overkill to some or not enough to others.  Our desire is for your safety and peace of mind as we return to in-person worship gatherings. We know many will choose to continue to worship at home; there is zero judgment for such a decision.  We trust that you will use your best wisdom in deciding whether you worship at home or at the church – but we encourage you to worship!  We are a family that is knit together by the Holy Spirit, not by physical proximity.  Please continue to pray for the church as we strive to honor God and each other through these turbulent times.  If you have questions or suggestions, reach out to Pastor Fuller, an elder, or someone on the church staff – we’re praying for you and want to serve!
