2020 CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 UPDATES

In an effort to ensure the health and safety of our entire Trinity family, we are suspending Sunday morning public worship services starting March 15, 2020. Live worship will be available at 9:30am each affected Sunday on our Facebook page. We are also posting regular updates to our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

RE-ENTRY PLAN

Below you will find the re-entry plan Pastors Paul and Ty have spoken about. It will serve as our guidelines for re-opening our doors for public worship and ministries. As these times are uncertain and the situation is somewhat fluid, some of the specifics are subject to change. We will communicate clearly as to which level we are presently in at any given time, as well as when we are moving from one level to another.

Trinity Check In: New Series Begins Tonight!
Check in on Zoom at 8:30pm tomorrow with Pastor Ty, Pastor Paul, and others from Trinity as we encourage one another and open the Scriptures over the next eight weeks to unpack some of the prayers we find in God’s Word. We will learn about prayer, see how others prayed in extreme circumstances, and learn how we should pray–not only in these unique times but as a habit for all of life. We will begin this Monday evening by examining the Lord’s Prayer.

Communion at Home
As part of our Good Friday service next week, we are encouraging our Trinity family to make unleavened bread as a way of sharing communion together. Here you can find the information and recipe you’ll need to make this time of communion a special experience even at home. We would also encourage you to pick up some grape juice to go along with the bread next time you go to the store or get groceries delivered.
 
 
This recipe is simple and designed for you to experience the type of bread Jesus and the disciples most likely used. It is bread made in a traditional Jewish style without yeast. It therefore does not rise as other breads would. Often these breads are made with only three ingredients: flour, water, and salt. This recipe includes a little olive oil for flavor.
 
 
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray baking sheet with a non-stick spray.
Mix these ingredients in a bowl:
1 cup all-purpose flour (can substitute whole-wheat flour)
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup slightly warm water
1/8 teaspoon salt (kosher salt if you have it)
Once dough is formed, cut into six small balls. Take each ball and spread it out on pan, making small pizza shells. If you like, add a little salt on top of each bread. Place in oven on baking tray and bake 8-10 minutes or a little longer if you like it crispier.

Easter Baskets for International Fellowship Church
While we will be unable to do an Easter Fun Fest for International Fellowship Church, we still want to help Abraham serve his church and community by preparing personal Easter baskets for children who are connected to International Fellowship Church. If you would like to participate, pick up an Easter basket at the west (office) entrance of the church between 8am-8pm, Monday through Friday, and bring them back to the church filled with goodies by Thursday, April 9. Have any questions? Contact Pastor Ty at tyw@trinitymentor.com.
 
#WeLOVELakeCounty: Cards for Local Medical Workers
Our kids can help love on Lake County by making cards for our local medical workers! We’ve posted a how-to video on making homemade cards on our Facebook page and in the Trinity NextGen group on Facebook. We would ask that these cards be returned to the church by Thursday, April 2. We will be bringing lunch to Lake County General Health District on April 3 to thank and encourage them for their tireless work and would like to send these cards along with lunch.
 
#LakeCountyTakeOut
Every Friday, we are encouraging Trinity to support our local restaurants, which are really struggling during this time. Have a fun family event and get take-out from one of your favorite local restaurants, post a picture on the Facebook #LakeCountyTakeOut post (which goes up every Friday at 4:00pm on our Facebook page), and you could win a $25 gift card to that restaurant!
