Dear Trellis & Love Costa Mesa Family,

After meeting and talking with numerous pastors and leaders in our city regarding COVID-19, it’s clear that our collective desire is to each do our part to exercise extreme caution in the spread of this virus. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the Loving Our City Celebration this Saturday evening. While we don’t want to be alarmist, we do want to be responsible, respectful and helpful in mitigating any chance of perpetuating the problem our city, state, nation and world is consumed with at this time.

At the current moment, there is a statistically small number of documented cases of coronavirus in Orange County. However, many credible experts suggest there are many more undetected cases that are likely to result in an increase of outbreaks in the coming weeks and months.

The sentiment at this time seems to be if we can all focus and do all we can to limit public engagement and the spread of the virus through the rest of the month of March, we’ll have a good chance of minimizing the spread of the virus as well as the concern/fear that is accompanying it.

In the midst of limiting our public engagement, we also recognize the importance of working with the community to help mitigate the issues that will arise as a result of not only the virus, but also the shutdowns that are coming along with it. To that end we have several recommendations/opportunities for your consideration.
  1. Below are some handouts in English and Spanish from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). We thought they might be helpful for you and helpful for you to share with others.
  2. By this Saturday on the www.wearetrellis.com there will be a coordinated and centralized way for us as a community to.
    1. Communicate needs that arise as a result of people who
      • have the virus
      • are in quarantine
      • are seriously affected as a result of the various shut downs
    2. Participate in helping meet those needs and show up for people being affected.
In 2011, the year we began talking about this idea of Trellis, there was a tragedy that happened in our city that launched about 300 of us a few days later to simply circle around City Hall and pray for the city. This really launched us into the place we are today where we have much greater collaboration, coordinated effort and greater results than ever. This is a great opportunity for us in the midst of these circumstances to seek God and come together again as our city deals with this challenge.  I invite you to join me in front of City Hall this Saturday at noon to pray for our city and wisdom for our leadership in the city as we continue responding to all that is going on.

Thank you for being a part of Trellis and our collective impact on the city.

In His strength,

Ian Stevenson
Executive Director
TRELLIS / (949) 422-5331

If you’d like to be an intentional neighbor and make yourself available to your neighbors during this crisis, we’ve created a short letter that you can download and customize with your own name and address. Once your specifics are included, you can print and distribute it to as many neighbors as you feel comfortable doing so. We can help mitigate the negative effects of the virus and its ramifications if we are intentional about looking out for one another and protecting the vulnerable members of our community. If you chose to interact with your neighbors in this way, we strongly suggest that you use wisdom and if you are part of a high-risk population group please consider and follow all of the most current CDC recommendations.
