Wearing a Mask is Now Optional


May 14, 2021

Dear Trinity Family,

Grace and peace to you and your households in the name of Jesus Christ. Based on the CDC’s updated recommendations released on Thursday, May 13, 2021 ,effective immediately: Wearing a mask is now optional to attend worship services or other activities at Trinity United Methodist Church unless circumstances change and the CDC changes its recommendations in the future.

The CDC issued this guidance:

  • If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
  • Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
  • If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, [you are encouraged to get vaccinated]

CDC included this statement on safe activities for fully vaccinated people; “Attend a full-capacity worship service.”

New CDC Recommendations can be found at this website:


Please be mindful of others and keep one another safe as we continue to navigate unprecedented change. “Wesley’s three simple rules -- Do No Harm, Do Good, and Stay in Love with God -- must still guide our hearts, our minds, and our actions.”

I want to thank you for your patience, love, prayers, faithfulness and support as we continue to be in Christ’s ministry with one another.

God’s Peace & Blessings,
