Children’s Worship sheet for today is at the bottom of this document.

A caution regarding Prayers of the People online:

Folks gathered in-person often recount a lot of detail in their prayers concerning other members or family (“Elderly Name, living alone, experiencing isolation…”).  In  a private, in-person gathering, this information may be safe, but online, it can expose vulnerable people to harm, since we can’t control who will join the gathering or access it later online. Please contact the Pastor directly by text or phone with prayer requests. Pastor Nathan will be prudent in offering prayers i.e.  “For First name only, in need of healing”; “For First name only, comfort in grief”  etc.  Please contact the pastor directly with news of those needing extra pastoral care.

Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.  Amen.

Trinity Covid-19 Latest Info

North Carolina plans to begin Phase 3 near the end of June. When NC Phase 3 begins, Trinity will begin a Phased in Regathering of church programs and partner ministry programs such as AA, Yoga, and PFLAG. For now, our worship is still Online Only at Facebook.com/CommaChurch. We know groups are anxious to begin meeting again in person. Our church board (consistory) will be providing details in a couple days on what re-entering our building will look like when it becomes safe to return. Our hope is to have groups begin re-entering building for meetings when NC Phase 3 begins. Of course, masks will be required while in building, along with physical distancing, and sanitizing before entering and upon leaving. Please call the office at 704-782-1024, or text Pastor Nathan at 704-224-1653 for more information. Thanks for helping keep everyone as safe as possible. Be aware these plans may change with new data and trends in our area.
