Wrap-up on Food Box Distribution from Jim Stoffer

This program started at the Sequim High School parking lot in June 2020 and moved to the Guy Cole Center and our TUMC parking lot in October in response to the food insecurity faced by so many during the pandemic. Demand has decreased so this drive-through program has ended. However, people are welcome to stop by the Sequim Food Bank during their regular hours.

In celebration of and gratitude to Andra Smith/the Sequim Food Bank, Blaine and Cindy Zechenelly/CERT, the City of Sequim, Trinity UMC, and for all of the volunteers and their work. If you are interested in the statistics: nearly 700 tons of food/ 1.25 million meals were shared with approximately 17,000 families. We have an awesome community and church!

Help Wanted!

The Trustees would like to have a video inventory of all Trinity “personal property” to use as a record in the event we have to make an insurance claim. We are looking for some folks who like to video and would be willing to seek out all our nooks and crannies to record on a thumb drive all of our “stuff.” If you are interested, or for more info, please call Andy Pitts at 804-724-3401.

New small group: COVID-19 Transition – Redesigning My New Normal, in Christ

This is a small group developed for those who are vaccinated yet, for a variety of reasons, may feel reluctant to come out of sheltering. They may be feeling unsafe, confused, and unclear about the best approaches to take. They may know they need to reconnect with others but just cannot find the motivation.

If this is you, you’re not alone. It’s a nationwide issue and can be very challenging. Melody has been developing her own redesign and has wonderful strategies that work to share with you!

Come and develop steps to prayerfully create your individual reopening, done using your inner wisdom at your own pace. Come and learn professionally researched calming and healing tools to aid you in a safe and accepting atmosphere.

Group will be held on either Wednesday or Thursday, July 21st or 22nd at noon depending on the needs of the group. We will meet on Zoom but will consider meeting in person for those who are unable to use Zoom.

To sign up or ask questions contact Melody Romeo and indicate your interest and the best day for you. Space is limited so please contact her soon. Email melodycoach@olypen.com or call 360 461-5595. Please leave your phone# so she can speak with you.

Peace with Justice Sunday, June 27, 2021:

In Arizona border towns, communities facing social challenges are dramatically divided. In Liberian villages, citizens’ human rights are being violated. In local U.S. communities, women and girls are being bought and sold against their will. Moved by Christ’s love to pursue reconciliation and peace, honoring the dignity of every individual made in God’s image, the United Methodist Church is unwilling to turn a blind eye to injustice

Although individually we may lack the resources to effect change in a broken world, our giving is vital for the UMC to continue our global ministries of reconciliation. The Peace with Justice Sunday offering enables the United Methodist Church to make a difference together by sowing seeds—and yielding fruit!—of peace. You may donate by issuing a check to Trinity UMC, indicating Peace w/Justice in the memo section. If you would like more information, go to: https://www.resourceumc.org/en/content/pwjs-promo-card.

Summer Lunch Program for Children

Friends, the Boys & Girls Club will be restarting their summer lunch program for the children of our community starting in mid-June. TUMC has participated in this ministry outreach since 2012.

The volunteer must have been fully vaccinated and loves working with children. There will be a B&G staff member on-site at each location to assist. TUMC’s typical commitment in the past is covering a couple of weeks throughout the summer; other faith groups and community service groups also cover weeks. A meeting will be announced to go over the specifics. Thank you to our church for being in ministry to our community and more importantly for our children.

Update on Noisy Can Offering: Sunday, May 30, 2012

The Missions Ministry Team has decided to focus donations for the May Noisy Can offering on specialty tools for high school students that many students cannot afford. (i.e. graph calculators cost approximately $140+ each.) It is a bit early to be collecting funds for back-to-school “anything” in May, but we wish to have the funds on hand when they are needed. (The August 29 NCO will be just past the dates for school needs.) We continue to request donations in cash or checks – no coins. Please issue checks to TUMC and write “May NCO” in the memo section. If donating cash, please enclose funds in an envelope that is labeled “May NCO”. As always, any amounts are greatly appreciated!

In this four-week Bible study, we’ll explore the life of Naomi as told in the Book of Ruth. We will learn to flourish as we live out our hard stories and trust that God can transform them.

Summer Lunch Program for Children

Friends, the Boys & Girls Club will be restarting their summer lunch program for the children of our community starting in mid-June. TUMC has participated in this ministry outreach since 2012. The basic format is distributing meals that have been prepared at the B&G Club at four sites in the greater Sequim area. The need is for one volunteer for each site, the volunteer must have been fully vaccinated and loves working with children. There will be a B&G staff member on-site at each location to assist. TUMC’s typical commitment in the past is covering a couple of weeks throughout the summer; other faith groups and community service groups also cover weeks. A meeting will be announced to go over the specifics. Thank you to our church for being in ministry to our community and more importantly for our children. If interested, please contact Jim Stoffer at jamesstoffer@wavecable.com or 360.775.9356

Announcements for April 15-22

Sunday In-Person Services

Sunday services are now being held in the church 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 safety guidelines will be followed: wear masks, take temperatures, and social distancing.)

Fellowship Hall Worship:

Does the thought of worshiping in the Fellowship Hall kind of turn you off? It did me, but I want to tell you, it is a good experience. It was great to be among people I hadn’t seen in a long time, and there was a warm feeling generated by worshiping with others. Watching the service “semi-live” at 10 am felt better to me than watching it alone on my computer at home at “any old time.” If you can’t get a Sanctuary reservation, give the Fellowship Hall a try!

Margaret Cox, Ad Council Chair

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.

Men’s Bible Study to Begin Again

Easter and partial reopening

March 18, 2021

Dear Saints of Trinity,

There is much to share this week. Probably the most important thing is information about reopening. We are reopening, but doing it gradually. We have permission to allow 25 persons in the facility at any given time, including worship services. As limiting as that may seem, at least it allows us to take one step toward fully opening up. Here’s how it’s going to work.
We will be reopening for live worship during Holy Week. We need to take reservations for those services. It will be first come first served. Reservations can be made by calling the church office. There will be four live Holy Week services available. There will also be opportunities to view those services on-line, including Easter Sunday. We will be prerecording an Easter service on the Wednesday before Easter. That service will be available for viewing online on Easter Sunday from the comfort of your homes. We thought that was important for those who will be unable to attend a live service, particularly given the minimal amount of people we will be able to have in each service.

Regarding the live services, each will require a reservation. We are asking that you make only one reservation. In other words, choose one of the four services to attend live. Here are the options. We will be holding a live Maundy Thursday service; the service that helps us remember the Last Supper. That service will be at 5 pm on Thursday, April 1, in the sanctuary. It will be recorded and available on-line the next day for those unable to attend the live service. There will be a live Good Friday service; a service remembering the death of Jesus, and all of the elements that led him toward the cross. That service will be on Friday, April 2nd at 5 pm, will also be taped, and will be available on-line the following day for those unable to attend. Each of those services will have 25 spots available.

On Easter Sunday we will hold two live services. The first will be at 9 am with the second at 11 am. With appropriate reservations, we will welcome 25 people to the sanctuary in each Easter Sunday service. We will also offer another 25 the opportunity to be in the Fellowship hall for each of the two services. The sanctuary service will be live, while the service in the Fellowship Hall will be simulcast on the big screen television monitors. The 9 am service will also be taped for viewing on-line at a later date. Those are the four opportunities for live worship beginning Holy Week. Now here are the tougher pieces of reopening in this way.

First, we are asking that only those who consider Trinity their church home make reservations, and attend the live services. In other words, no extended family, no neighbors, no other friends, at least at this point. I know that sounds harsh, but it’s what we need to do. We will open more fully as time goes by, and vaccinations become more prevalent. In addition, we are requiring that only those who have completed both vaccination shots, and who have had the two-week, post-second shot waiting period completed. So, the second shot plus the two-week waiting period will be required in order for anyone to attend one of the live services. In addition, we’re asking that we are able to have a copy of your vaccination card on file at the church. When bringing your card to the church, please redact or blackout your birthday before submitting your copied card. You can either drop the copy by the church office or bring it with you when you attend one of the services.

Upon arrival at the church for the service you will be attending, and for which you have a reservation, you will be met at the door by a greeter. The greeter will take your temperature, ask you to sign in, ask that you sanitize your hands, and make sure you have a mask that covers your nose and mouth. Those elements are requirements for any and all who attend. Masks will be worn at all times while in the facility. Once those pieces are taken care of, an usher will then take you to a seat in the sanctuary. The seating is designed with social distancing in mind. Every person in attendance will be socially distanced from anyone not in their “bubble.” We’re asking that you not sing, or at least don’t sing out. There will be no meet and greet time during the service. Once the service is over, ushers will dismiss you by sections in order to assure that social distancing is followed. There will also be no coffee hour.

Friends, words cannot describe to you how difficult all of this has been for those of us trying to plan worship. Our hands are tied by both the Governor and our Bishop. It’s possible that between now and Holy Week we will be allowed to expand those “in attendance” numbers. There is no guarantee of that. At this point, it is 25. It could move to 50 individuals or even 25% occupancy. We just don’t know. Our fear is people feeling excluded, and that people will feel an even deeper level of isolation knowing that others have been in worship in the sanctuary. Neighbors, please make those important phone calls to make sure everyone is okay. And be assured that as the virus becomes more controlled, as more are vaccinated, as we continue to follow the proper protocols we will be able to welcome more and more people back into worship. Until then, everything we’re doing is being done out of love for you. We love you and we want to keep you safe. The pandemic is not over.

Finally, I need to say this. The pandemic is real. The pandemic is huge. The numbers are real. The need for masks is real. As your pastor I want to caution you on listening to the voices that may tell you otherwise. I’ve had friends die. I have friends who, even after almost a year, are still struggling to breathe. I have friends who have not regained full strength or full health after months of struggle with this virus. It is real, as is the science behind the protocols. I believe that with all of my heart. So let’s love each other and keep each other as safe as we possibly can. I can finally honestly say, at least in a small way, “See you in church.”

Pastor Brad

Some Concerns that we have:

  • For those who continue to go through physical struggles, those who are dealing with cancer, or other health situations.
  • Prayers for those who are emotionally feeling lost and alone.
  • For all those who are ill from the covid-19 virus; for those families who have lost loved ones to the virus; for all the first responders/essential workers; and for those who are nervous about getting shots.
  • For peace in our country.
  • For smooth delivery of the vaccine. And please pray for all of the volunteers.
  • For Katherine Parker, missionary to Nepal.

We meet every two weeks on Friday at 9:30 AM for a couple of hours of cutting grass, doing small maintenance chores, and a host of small jobs that together make a big difference … providing TLC to our building and grounds. We will offer coffee and light eats to make this a social time as well, providing TLC to ourselves! The inaugural Trinity TLC will be Friday 19 March at 9:30 AM. Jobs this week include lawn mowing, spraying moss in the parking lot, testing emergency lights, cleaning the kitchen refrigerator coils and range hoods, and various small repairs, mostly inside. All are welcome!
