Latest News From Rev. Daniel Humbert

March 3, 2021

Trietsch Family,

I hope you’re well and as ready for spring as I am!  I also pray your commemoration of Lent is growing your soul and helping you to move from empty to full.

Today, I feel compelled to write to you in follow up to the recent unexpected announcement from Gov. Abbott regarding Covid-19.  As you know, as a faith family, in addition to worshipping online, we have been worshipping on-site in the sanctuary since October of last year (and since June on the FLC lawn). Our worship has been a wonderful experience of celebrating God and one another.  It has been an amazing communal encounter for those who have chosen to worship on-site.  We are excited to have recently opened our renovated Connection Center for gathering space and we have discontinued the use of release forms for use of the facility.

Please read more of Daniel's letter by expanding the box or CLICK HERE to see the RE-ENTRY GUIDELINES for more details.

As you may also remember, our Leadership Board established several phases for re-entry into the building in May of last year.  At their upcoming March meeting, the Leadership Board will continue to discern how to expand our safe, secure, and faithful re-entry into the building.  Our current Phase III allows for worship, small groups, as well as children, youth, and fitness ministry to occur on-site with masks, social distancing, and frequent hand washing and sanitizing. These are the established recommendations from the CDC and virtually all health care providers.

We will continue to maintain these protocols until the Leadership Board establishes a new set to guide us forward.  I know we are all ready to move forward and to do it in the most faithful and safe manner possible.  I thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation as we move forward. 

I remain grateful to be your pastor and I celebrate you as a faith family that seeks to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. I will update you as soon as possible about new protocols and procedures.  And I look forward to being with you in worship this Sunday—in the sanctuary or online—as we seek to move from empty to full.

Every Blessing,
Daniel Humbert
Senior Pastor

Please review our re-entry guidelines.

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.

myTrietsch

myTrietsch is a system that allows you the ease of scheduling and initiating your own online payments and also connects you to groups and event registration. Online giving is the preferred method of giving due to the convenience, reliability, and security. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or remember to submit online payments each week. And, when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.

For Your Kids

Julie Hawkins, Director of Children and Family Ministries, is working hard to ensure that you and your kids feel spiritual connected during this time of social distancing. But for us it's not just about spiritual health. We want to think about mental, physical, and intellectual health, as well.

The Children's Ministry team will be posting weekly Bible lessons that your kids would be learning in The Anchor on Sunday mornings, and will provide activities you can do as a family at home to live into our monthly themes in Children's Ministry on the Trietsch Children Facebook Group.
