Important Reopening Information

Worship Sign Up for August 2 & 3 - Louisiana Ph. 2 

 

All services are at 8:30am & 11am on Sundays and 6:30pm on Mondays.  This will allow a 9:45-10:45 designated Sunday School Hour when we are able to do so.

 

These protocols are fluid and change often based on current conditions, and the guidance has recently changed which indicates a change for us at Trinity.

  • Per the guidance from the OpenSafely Protocols, we are asking all attendees at worship services to wear a face mask.  If you do not have one, we will have a limited supply available at the church.  All attendees inside the Service will wear a face covering or mask.
  • We will be broadcasting live which will allow you to take part electronically in the Service.  You can find the live stream at http://www.youtube.com/c/TrinityLutheranChurchBR  
  • We hope you understand the concern for the health and safety of our Church Family is our utmost priority and continue to ask for your prayers and patience as we move through the Governor's OpenSafely restart Phases. Reference:  Louisiana OpenSafely Protocols OSFM Updated June 1, 2020 

OTHER INFORMATION AND SIGN UP!

Due to summer weather conditions, we have moved the Monday Night Service indoors.  

We realize there may be some circumstances which may cause concern over this service moving indoors and we ask you please contact your Elder to discuss any special needs we can address.

Masks are mandatory at all services and we will be properly physically distanced.

This Sunday's services will be at 8:30am (Traditional) and 11am (Contemporary) and Monday's Service will be at 6:30pm (Traditional).  According to the Governor's guidelines for Phase 2 there are still many restrictions that we must adhere to.  Please read this email in full and use the sign-up genius link to sign up for church.  

 

  • "Individuals 65 years or older, people of all
    ages with poor control of medical issues like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, or a weakened
    immune system are at a higher risk for getting very sick or dying from COVID-19 and should strictly adhere to all CDC guidelines, including recommendations against attending religious services in person, and are encouraged to stay at home as much as possible." (Reference document above)
  • The elders, ushers, and employees will wear masks per the governor's directive. We are asking the congregation to wear masks as well. Gloves are optional. If you wish to wear gloves, please bring them from home. 
  • You are now able to pick up your Bread & Wine in a disposable container when entering the service. The sacrament will be consecrated by the Pastor during the normal communion time and we will all commune at the same time.  On your way out, their will be a disposal bin to put the empty container.  Ushers and Elders will be on hand to help with any questions you may have.
  • It is imperative that you continue to sign up for worship for the next several weeks so that we can adhere to the Governor's guidelines for worship in Phase 2.  Please  CLICK HERE to register on our Sign-Up Genius. If you have trouble with signing up, contact Lisa Miller by calling 225-405-9373.
  • In compliance with the Governor's OpenSafely Protocols we are limited on how many people can attend each Service.

    We are allowed 75 people per service which includes the Narthex area.

    Seating will be assigned based on the number of people in your reservation.

    We ask that you register with your name and the number of people attending. Your seat will be marked when you arrive and an Elder will direct you to your assigned seats inside the church. We are using this process to maintain physical distancing protocols and allow families to sit together.

  • We are asking everyone to please sign up by Friday July 17th so we can set up the Church on Saturday the 18th.

Please be patient as we re-acclimate to once again praising God inside His house under the 'new normal' directives.

As we move through the Governor's OpenSafely Protocols we continue to keep the health and safety of our Church Family at the center of everything we do.

We appreciate your continued patience and prayers.
