New altar and pulpit
For those who were unable to attend on Easter Sunday, we now have a new altar and pulpit, pictured above, that was in place for the first time on Easter Sunday. We extend a heartfelt thank you to Andy Pitts, a TUMC member, who designed and built these beautiful pieces.
Sunday In-Person Services
Sunday services are now being held in the Sanctuary at 10 am. As of this notice, we are still limited to 25 people in the Sanctuary, and 25 in the fellowship hall. If interested in attending, please call the office next week, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, to make a reservation. (Be sure you have had your two shots, plus two weeks, and that there is/will be a copy of your vaccination card on file at the church office. The COVID-19 safety guidelines will be followed: wear masks, take temperatures, and social distancing.)
OnLine Video-Taped Services
The Sunday service is now being filmed and available online the next day, Monday. If you regularly watch the service on Sunday, that may leave you wondering, “What do I watch this Sunday?” This could be your opportunity to view a service you might have missed. (Go to YouTube, and enter Sequim Trinity United Methodist Church. There you can take your pick of services!) On the following Sunday, you can view this Sunday’s service and regularly watch the services a week later.

Access to the Church during Vaccination Hours:
Blake Avenue is now open, but as you approach the church, you will be stopped by a Volunteer Police person. Simply let them know you are trying to get to the church for a meeting, they will wave you on by. Turn into the north entrance, drive by the skate park, and then go around the back of the church building. Parking is available. This is on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays – 9 am to 2 pm.
Church Attendance Requirements include Vaccinations:
Please note that as TUMC opens for on-site worship it will be a requirement to have your two vaccinations and be past the two weeks following your second vaccination.
COVID-19 VACCINATIONS: for Clallam County residents.

Those 18+ and Clallam County Residents.

Peninsula Singers Virtual Cabaret is still up for viewing.
Because of Covid, the choir cannot meet to sing or perform, and we need some basic donations in order to keep alive until the restrictions are lifted, and people are allowed to sing and perform again, as well as award some scholarships. The show is hosted by Jerry Wright and runs for just under 45 minutes. It is very good, and can be accessed from the Peninsula Singers website: peninsulasingers.org or on Facebook: Peninsula Singers | Facebook. Donations by mail can be sent to: Peninsula Singers, 325 E. Washington Street #135, Sequim, WA 98382. God bless you for helping us weather the Covid storm!
Trinity United Methodist Church office hours are 9 am-2 pm Monday through Friday. However, due to limited access to the building during this phase of opening, we are keeping the doors locked. There is a doorbell to the right of the main door (by the office) that you need to ring to alert the office and you will be let in. It is best to call ahead so we are aware that you are coming. Thanks so much for your patience and remember when in the building to be sure and wear your mask!
