Important updates regarding Holy Trinity as we shelter in place in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
***NEW INFORMATION***Holy Trinity will follow the guidance put out by the Governor on June 26, 2020. We ask that you wear a face mask to church to help slow the spread of Covid 19.
Holy Trinity leaders agreed on May 26, 2020 to resume public worship beginning May 31, 2020.Governor Roy Cooper’s most recent executive order (phase 2 reopening mass gathering limits do not apply to houses of worship) allows for indoor worship of greater than 10 persons but does recommend all CDC guidelines be followed including: hand washing, social distancing, and wearing masks.
The HTLC leadership adopted the following guidelines in reference to public worship services:
1) Please do not come to church if you are feeling sick (fever, cough, etc.). Please watch the service from home on either HTLC Group Facebook Live or select the link on the HTLC website to watch the recorded service Sunday afternoon.
2) Persons considered high risk for complications of Covid 19 should prayerfully consider staying home and watching the service online.
3) Please use hand sanitizer upon entering the sanctuary.
4) Please practice social distancing (6' apart) at all times.
5) Sanctuary seating has been adjusted to allow for social distancing.
6) Please consider wearing masks to reduce the aerosol effect and to protect others.
7) The offering plate will not be passed. It will be placed on a table at the rear of the sanctuary.
8) Bulletins will not be handed out. They will be placed on a table in the narthex just outside the sanctuary. Please help yourself.
9) The church will be sanitized after each use. Please consider volunteering for this.
10) Please continue social distancing (6' apart) as you exit the sanctuary and church building.
11) Communion will be served to one family group at a time (in serving cups containing a wafer and a individual communion cup), standing in front of the altar (no kneeling).
