Trinity has now resumed in-person worship.
For everyone’s health and safety, each Sunday we have a limited number of seats available.
- In order to attend, you MUST sign up through the Sign Up Genius (link below).
- You will need to make sure that you adjust the “quantity” slot on your sign up to match the number of people in your family who are coming.
- We have included a short “How To” video below if you are at all unsure of how to handle the sign up part.
- On the sign up, you will see a Covenant for In-Person Worship.
- It is very important that you take the time to read the Covenant for In-Person Worship, and if you choose to attend worship, you must mark that you agree to all the statements listed in the covenant. Again, your health and safety is our top priority.
- In respect for others, please considering attending alternate Sundays so that everyone has a chance to participate in the in-person worship.
- There are no standing reservations; you must sign up for each service you wish to attend
These are important points as you make your plans to attend in-person worship service:
- Nursery will be available for children ages 4 and younger. You must sign up for a nursery slot. If you choose not to use the nursery, children are welcome to sit with you, and they would be counted in your regular reservation quantity.
- For those wishing to use the nursery, you must sign your children up below in the Nursery slot. If you have more than one child going to the nursery, please make sure to reserve a slot for each child. Parents, you will still need to sign yourselves up in the worship slots.
- For drop off, you will use the nursery entrance off of the courtyard (the courtyard faces Duval St). A staff member will meet you to take temperatures. All nursery staff will be wearing masks, children are not required to. After drop off, parents will need to exit back out into the courtyard and enter the sanctuary through the Park Ave entrance.
- If you are a member with FOB access to the building, please note that those will be disabled on Sundays. Everyone must enter and exut the sanctuary through the Park Ave entrance only.
- Greeters/Ushers/Temperature takers do NOT need to sign up for the service if volunteering in one of these capacities. If you have any family members coming with you, please DO sign them up.
- Everyone will be required to wear a mask. (Masks will be available if you need one.)
- Temperatures will be checked before entering sanctuary, not to exceed 100.4 degrees.
- Hand sanitizer will be provided and must be used before entering the sanctuary.
- Physical distancing of 6 ft or more will be required except for family members.
- All attending will acknowledge that there will be NO congregational singing.
- Seating will be designated and guided by hosts from our greeting team.
- Children may sit with their parents. Childcare will be available beginning in October.
- Worship will continue to be broadcast on our Live Stream Channel and on 100.7 FM.
Please see our video for a step-by-step instructions for in-person worship when you arrive.

In Leon County, 43% of residents live at or below the poverty line, including over 3,000 children under the age of 5. Children living in poverty are at greater risk for academic, health, and safety issues.
