TPUUF Prepares for “Hybrid” Services
August 8, 2021
For 17 months, TPUUF has held weekly Sunday services virtually using Zoom.
This has been both a challenge and a blessing. We have engaged guest
ministers and speakers from across the country, and have welcomed former
members who no longer live in the area and guests from far and wide. At the
same time, we have sorely missed the personal interactions with each other that
help make our Fellowship a beloved community. Let’s face it, services on Zoom
are not for everyone.
A capable and dedicated volunteer Tech Team has prepared our building for
“hybrid” services that will be held in the building, in person, and also shared over
the internet for those who have found that mode of service to be more workable
than attending in person. The building is now wired for cameras and large screen
monitors that should enhance both the in-person and on-line worship experience.
At the same time, the building has been upgraded with new flooring and painting
on the main level, electrical and plumbing repairs, new furniture, thorough
cleaning, and “touchless” hand sanitizing stations and trash receptacles.
Our Re-opening Task Force has developed protocols for in-person services and
activities that should guard against potential spread of the novel coronavirus.
Our first “hybrid” service will be conducted by Mike Holliday on August 22. Two
virtual services will follow on August 29 and September 5 before we begin full-
time “hybrid” services on September 12.
