Big Rapids FAQs:

When will Trinity Fellowship | Big Rapids be re-engaging in in person services?

August 23rd, 2020! Currently, outdoor gatherings of 100 people are allowed. We have 2 services: 9:00 am and 10:45 am. 

What will Outdoor Services look like?

Our goal right now in this season is to create a Simple, Safe, and Significant worship experience for all ages.  Pastor Gary will be preaching, we will have simplified LIVE worship, prayer, and fellowship. Services are not expected to last more than 1 hour.

Where do I go when I arrive at Big Rapids Campus?

Please locate the large tent on the campus.  

Where do we sit?

We ask that you bring your own camp-chair, blanket, umbrella for shade, pop-up tent, etc. If you don’t have one, don’t worry. We have extras.

Do I have to wear a mask and what about social distancing?

Because this is an outdoor setting, masks are welcomed but not mandatory. We will be practicing social distancing by encouraging households to give space some space between each other. We are all excited to give handshakes, hugs and see each other, but please practice your fake high fives and air hugs a little longer!

Will Restrooms be Open?

Restrooms will be open in the building.  However, we encourage everyone to use the restroom before or after coming to church to limit the number of people using a shared space and to limit the cleaning that needs to happen after services.

Can I come if I’m one of the “vulnerable” (age of 60 or Immune Compromised)?

We love you and want to provide a safe, caring and empowering environment for you. Please know you are welcome, but your attendance in person is not expected. Please pray and do what is comfortable and wise for you and your family. Services will still be provided online and via DVD, just as they have been throughout the pandemic, so you won’t be left out.

Will there be nursery or Trinity Kids Ministry?
Trinity Kids will begin meeting indoors starting Sept 13.  Toddler nursery, preschool and elementary classes will be available.  There will be no infant nursery. For information on how to register and what upcoming changes will be implemented, go to https://vimeo.com/454957164.

We are serving coffee and cookies and are taking the necessary precautions to serve them in this time. We will have servers who are wearing masks and gloves to ensure no one touches the cookie or cup before you.

Where do I go when I arrive at Newaygo Campus?

The “stage” will be set up in the shade near the wood line on the east side of the property when it’s sunny, and it will be set up at the main entryway if it seems like it might rain. Either way, you should be able to find us easy enough when you enter the parking lot.

Where do we sit?

We ask that you bring your own camp-chair, blanket, umbrella for shade, pop-up tent, etc. If you don’t have a chair, don’t worry. We have extras!

What happens if it rains?

We have a small FM transmitter system, so if it rains, the outdoor service will become an outdoor “drive in” service and we can worship together from our vehicles. Just tune in to 89.1 FM.

Will there be nursery or Trinity Kids Ministry?

For everyone’s safety, we will not be opening our Trinity Kids Ministry quite yet. We hope to open up on September 13. Until then, children are welcome in our services with their parents and grandparents. Pastor Patrick will seek to engage all ages (including his own young children!) in the service during the message, prayers, singing, and sharing. There will be plenty of space to walk around if your child is not able to sit still, and we do have side-walk chalk for the kids to use in the parking lot. Parents can bring strollers, books, coloring books, snacks, and whatever else their children need (similar to going to the park, an outdoor concert, or the beach). It’s a simple setting, and we welcome the children!

What if I’m sick or think I might be sick?

We ask that you please “self-screen” before coming. If you’re sick, or think you might be sick, please stay home and engage in our online services at trinityinfo.org.

Will there be Coffee and Cookies?

We will not be serving coffee and cookies quite yet, so please bring your own coffee with you. We hope to start serving these refreshments again on September 13.
