Staying Safe and Connected During the Corona Virus Pandemic

At the TRUU Board meeting on Tuesday, March 10, the TRUU Trustees agreed to the following suggestions to keep TRUU members and friends safe…

  1. Beginning this Sunday, March 15, we will not be having Coffee hour after the Sunday Service.
  2. We leave the decision to attend the Sunday service up to the individual. However, if you decide to attend we request that all attendees adhere to a strategy of social distancing, which would include:
    • keeping a seat between you and other attendees,
    • not shaking hands or hugging
    • washing your hands in the restrooms of the third street center for 20 seconds before entering the worship space,
    • and covering your coughs and sneezes
  1. We recommend that all people at high risk for complications from COVID-19 NOT attend the Sunday service. This would include anyone over 70 years of age, and anyone with a chronic disease (including, but not limited to Diabetes, COPD, those taking any immunosuppressing drugs, chronic Kidney or liver disease, transplants, cancer, chronic neurologic disease, chronic rheumatologic disease, chronic heart or vascular disease).
  2. Depending on the spread of this epidemic into the general population of the Roaring Fork Valley, we may need to cancel all Sunday services until group meetings are considered to be safe for all attendees by the best medical experts.

We gather together in a spiritual community because we need constant reminders of what matters most in life. In a world of heartbreak and dehumanization, our congregations and communities call us to our better selves. We learn to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion.

Our Worship Services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, poetry, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs for all ages inspire us and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.

We are inspired not just by religious sources but by the people with whom we journey: the diverse and spirited Unitarian Universalists.

Here are some frequently asked questions about Sunday mornings:

  • What about my kids?
    • Your whole family is welcome for the entire service. We also offer religious exploration during worship. After the ‘time for all ages’ we form an arch for youth and teachers to go under and go out to the TRUU room for religious exploration. Religious Exploration is provided weekly by Ana Chynoweth and Justice Bouchet. Our service is also live-streamed into our office space if you need a space to nurse or soothe a kid that just wants to play. Your family’s choices are totally welcome here!
  • What do I wear?
    • We don’t have a dress code. Come as you are.
  • Where do I park?
    • There is plenty of parking at the Third Street Center! Park and then come in the main entrance. We’re setting up for coffee hour in the first room you see, the Calaway room. Turn left and walk down the hall. You’ll see our name tag board as we prepare for worship in the Community Hall.
  • Is there coffee?
    • That is a dogma we subscribe to – there is always coffee and goodies after services in the Calaway room Drink your fill and enjoy fellowship!
  • Do you worship Jesus?
  • My question isn’t on here!
