Hello Trinity Church Family,
I trust that everyone is well at this time. I know that it has been stressful for so many, but through it all God has kept us and will continue to do so.
I just wanted to update you on the reopening process. I am sure many of you already know that as of Tuesday this week Riverside County reach the “Red Tier” in the reopening process. This means that churches can now reopen for inside worship. However, the guidelines remain the same as they were set back in May, 25% of seating capacity or 100 persons whichever is less, for Trinity that means 100 persons max per worship service.
However, as before, Trinity will not jump right into this reopening process. I feel we need to hold back for a little while longer to ensure that the number will keep going down and not up again to cause another shut down.
Therefore, for now we will continue with our Live Stream services. We do have all the necessary requirements in place for reopening and when we feel that it is safe to do so we will be able to move forward very quickly.
I thank you all for your prayers and support during this exceedingly difficult time. I also thank you for understanding that I put your safety ahead of just seeing your faces.
Continue praying and continue to stay safe,
Joseph L. Gueste, Senior Pastor
