Updated Florida Conference COVID Guidance We wrote last week and shared our concerns about the rising COVID-19 cases in Florida. We write again this week because of the continued increase of infections and the updated CDC guidelines related to masks. Please factor these two realities into your ongoing leadership conversations and decisions. We ask pastors and church leaders to take the current reality in Florida seriously and adjust your expectations for ministry as we continue to navigate this season together.
We urge the use of masks in indoor settings, as an expression of our love for our neighbor and as the fulfillment of the law of Christ (Galatians 5:14).

A special concert featuring the music of American composers will be held Friday, September 10th at 7pm in the sanctuary.

Performers include Yulia Billa, Viktor Billa, Marques Ruff, Warren May, Claire Williams, Patrick Ashley and Christopher Titko. This is a great way to introduce a friend to Trinity Church.
