As we enter this new reality, the CDC has lots of information to help you be proactive and stay healthy.

When fear and anxiety move into our hearts, remember that God is not a God of confusion but of peace (1 Corinthians 14:33). 

God calls us to love each other and our communities (John 13:34Isaiah 58:6-14). So, let’s continue to be wise in caring for our families, trust that God is in control, pray for healing, and carry peace into our communities.

Letter From Rev. Daniel Humbert

While it’s never easy to be the Church, we remain committed to sharing God’s radical love. Along with you, we have been vigilant in staying informed with the most current updates concerning the COVID-19 outbreak. With the latest announcements of major cities and schools ordering new restrictions, we wanted to update you on our next course of action for our Trietsch family.

We maintain a constant posture of prayerful, thoughtful discernment as we progress through these days – trying to balance prudence with faithful trust. As your pastors and staff, your health – spiritual, emotional, and physical – is our primary concern.

In alignment with the Denton County Disaster Declaration and the LISD closure policy, ALL worship, events and activities will ONLY be held online through Thursday, April 30.
 
Of course, worship services will be available online Sundays 9:30 & 11am at TMUMC.ORG/watch and Facebook.com/tmumc. We apologize for some of the streaming problems we have encountered the past two Sundays. We are working through those problems and are switching streaming companies. During this switch, worship will NOT be available on Roku or AppleTV on Sunday, March 29. Please join us on our website or Facebook. Please check-in on the website and interact with us on Facebook while you are watching.

During this time of isolation and distancing, we aim to be a center of calm, hope, and service. We want to do everything we can to serve the most vulnerable during this time, but to do that we need your generosity. With the cancellation of worship services, churches across the area are finding themselves depleted of the offerings they would normally receive on a Sunday morning and we are no exception. If you would normally give cash or a check on Sunday mornings, we invite you to start giving digitally at TMUMC.ORG/give. You are also able to mail a check to the church. If you’re financially able, please consider giving above and beyond your normal offerings . During times of chaos and crisis, your generosity matters now more than ever. We are grateful for any amount you’re able to give.

As many of us are feeling the isolation, it is particularly important for you to join us online this weekend. We are also working on digital plans to keep connected with your Life Groups, Sunday schools, fitness and other groups. We will update you at TMUMC.ORG/health on these plans to engage with you and your family during this season. Our purpose always remains to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ…in whatever format we can.

God bless you and your family. Stay safe and healthy.

Blessings,
Daniel Humbert
Senior Pastor

YOU CAN BE A LIGHT IN A TIME OF CRISIS

Although many of us will be avoiding large events and maybe working from home, there are still opportunities to care for one another and demonstrate Christ’s love. I would suggest a couple of ideas:

  • Pray for those who are affected by this virus – those who are ill, the medical professionals treating them, the scientists working on vaccines and cures and the leaders making tough decisions to try and curb the spread of the virus and keep us safe. Pray for those with mental health concerns, as well as those who feel extra lonely during this time –please reach out to anyone you think might be feeling isolated over the next few weeks.
  • Educate yourself about the Coronavirus from credible and reliable sources, such as from the World Health Organization, the CDC. Know the symptoms and have a plan for what you would do if you or a family member were to become sick.
  • Check on your friends and neighbors. If you know someone who may not have internet access, give them a call and share the information in this email. We can continue to reach out and care for one another through phone calls, emails and social media.
  • If you are able, deliver food and essentials to those that need it.
  • Many doctors and nurses may be working long hours. Consider ways you can bless these medical professionals with acts of kindness and notes of appreciation.
  • Remember this is temporary. Our church continues to serve our congregation and community. Continue to be a part of the ministry – the need for the support you give in our area and around the world continues despite the pandemic.
  • Please continue your financial support of the work of the church. Many of you have set up your tithes and offerings to be automatically given. If you haven’t, you can give your tithes and offering online, or you can mail a check to the church at Trietsch, Attn: Finance, 6101 Morriss Road, Flower Mound, TX 75028

 

CONGREGATIONAL CARE

Many hospitals and care facilities are beginning to limit visitors. Our congregational care team will continue to care for our congregation, but they will take precautions to protect their health and prevent the spread of the virus. In facilities that are closing to visitors, we will stay connected with the patients and residents through phone calls and notes.

YOU CAN HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty

If you would normally give cash or a check on Sunday mornings, we invite you to start giving digitally at tmumc.org/give. You are also able to mail a check to the church. If you’re financially able, please consider giving above and beyond your normal offerings . During times of chaos and crisis, your generosity matters now more than ever. We are grateful for any amount you’re able to give.
