Dear Trinity Members and Friends,
We will continue to stay faithful to our mission of "Faithful Living, Changing Lives" in the coming days, but do so in new and different ways. New information and restrictions regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) are coming to us every day, and we are trying to respond faithfully.
With that in mind, we are suspending all non-essential onsite activities at Trinity until further notice. This includes all Sunday morning and Wednesday evening worship services, small group gatherings and special events.
As more information becomes available on the spread of COVID-19 and the Center for Disease Control recommendations, Trinity leadership will keep you informed of changes to our worship and activity schedules. Please call the church office at 952-955-1891 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
By practicing "social distancing", we hope to slow the spread of the coronavirus even as we show love and compassion to our friends and neighbors. Please know that the ministry of Trinity will continue during this time. Our staff and leadership will continue to work and plan new ways for us to "be together", even if it means being together from a distance.

One of the implications of canceling Sunday morning worship is that our regular offering will not be collected. It's essential to support the ministries of Trinity, and that we find ways to be generous even while we're not physically together. Knowing that everyone's income will be impacted during this time, we invite those with extra resources to consider making an extra gift.

In times of challenge, the church reclaims its highest calling: to be a beacon of light to the world. Let's commit to reaching out to those around us in new and creative ways. Pray for each other. Pray for your church leaders. Pray for your community leaders. Send a card, email, or text to someone you know, simply to keep in touch. Read your Bible – the book of Psalms is a good place to start. Sing "Jesus Loves Me" as you wash your hands. Worship with us online. And most of all, don't forget to breathe. Just breathe, and remember the gift of life that God brings with each and every breath that we take.
COVID-19 is causing a lot of disruption and disappointment to us all right now, but remember that our God has the last and final word about this disruption. And God's word for us right now is found in this prayer: "When I am afraid, I put my trust in you." (Psalm 56:3)
God's Peace Be With You,
Pastor Jeffrey M. Engholm
