COVID-19 Protocols

Current Status: Red Stage

A few weeks ago we left you with a message to keep an eye out for the "watch words" of "until further notice" for those who wish to join us for in-person worship. As much as we hoped to be able to host service on Sunday, November 22 - Thanksgiving Sunday, this will not occur. We are holding steady in our message of "until further notice."


The state of Colorado has updated the COVID-19 dial and added the Level Purple. The State also placed the County of Denver under the new Red Level status starting Friday 11.20.2020 at 12:00 am, due to increasing cases of the virus in our community. The COVID-19 spread in our state and local Denver community has surpassed the previous May 2020 peak(s) and has had a 7-day positivity rate just below 13%. In accordance with guidelines set by the Mountain Sky Conference, we will not host services until the Sunday following the city and state recording 14 consecutive days of less than 5% positive cases of COVID-19. The recently Amended Public Health Order adding “Purple” to the dial is here for your review.


In response, we at Trinity have made the following decisions:


  1. Sunday in-person services will continue to be suspended until the city and state record 14 consecutive days of less then 5% positive cases of Coronavirus-19.
  2. Inside activities (inside the church) though limited, may continue IF approved by Pastor Ken. For now, these will be limited to AA Meetings (with proper social distancing in small groups) and the CHCS lunch program, that is consistent with Denver’s requirements for outdoor dining and takeout protocols. We understand that this is a difficult time, yet we are working hard to ensure everyone’s safety and still be of service to our community.
  3. Pastor Ken will provide Life Services (baptisms, weddings, funerals) at his discretion on a case-by-case basis.
  4. The church’s office hours remain unchanged from 9am – 3pm M-F. We will be closed on Sat/Sun until further notice. 
  5. The church will remain locked, with no public bathrooms.
  6. Health checks for any visitors are required.  
  7. Masks remain required for all activities (inside and outside).


We are praying for all those in our community that are impacted during these times and continue to look forward to the Sunday that we can once again host in-church services at Trinity. Until then and “until further notice,” join us for online worship, understanding we are doing the best we can to be mindful of your health and your worship preference for in-person attendance.

Iona Pilgrimage

September 9-19, 2021 | Registration is now open

Led by Cami Twilling

You will have the opportunity to experience the peaceful island of Iona off the western coast of Scotland through teaching, meditation, prayer and reflection guided by Celtic Spirituality scholar John Philip Newell. We will explore themes of oneness related to the human soul and the healing of creation through the wisdom of ancient and modern Celtic teachers. Mornings will be given to teaching, reflection, and listening. Afternoons will be given to hiking, conversation and rest. Evenings will be a time together in community. Join us for this pilgrimage through the beautiful landscape of Scotland and the deep inner landscape of the soul.

From Pastor Ken's Desk

Dear Friends,

John 13:34-35 (CEB): "I give you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I loved you, so you also must love each other. This is how everyone will know that you are my disciples, when you love each other."

As I have reflected on the last week and everything that has happened from George Floyd’s death - the protests, riots, and what our faith community has already been through with COVID-19, I have been heart-sick. I suspect many of you have felt the same way.
 
I'm touched by our community of loving people that have reached out to me personally and also to their communities. My hope grows with each affirming message that together, we can make the difference that is required. We can influence our world and our community to recognize and fight racism in our churches, our systems, our policies, and in our everyday interactions with the people around us.
 
While my heart is still weary, I also want to continue forging a path forward for us. As the body of Christ, we are to take a stand against injustice and work to bring God’s light to the world through Jesus Christ. We started that work with our all-inclusion statement in 2019. We need to continue this work in earnest, and so I have asked for a small group of people to begin working on what an Anti-Racist Allyship would look like at Trinity. Please pray for this group to discern how we can impact the conversation in real and lasting ways and how we can stand firm in our faith and with our brothers and sisters as our community grieves for all that are marginalized because of the color of their skin (for more information, contact dmeyer@trinityumc.org). We need to be clothed in prayer, beacons of light in the darkness, and we need to remember that our battle is a spiritual one as well.

May God bless us as we move forward as one family in Christ.

With gratitude,
Pastor Ken
