Return to the Lord

"Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and He relents over disaster". -- Joel 2:13

Journey through Lent @ Trinity

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent this year on February 17th. Our theme for Lent is "Return to the Lord" based on Joel 2:13, "Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and He relents over disaster".

You're invited to join with us on this journey as we return to the Lord and rediscover his grace, mercy, and love.  New this year are morning Midweek Lent services on Wednesdays at 11:00am.  This helps provide socially distanced capacity for worship as well as providing a daytime option if you don't like driving in the dark.  (Registration is only required for the 6pm service)

Unfortunately, due to COVID, we will not be having our regular meals prior to the midweek services. However, on Easter Sunday the youth will be doing a cinnamon roll "to-go" fundraiser. Keep a lookout for more information about that.

Beyond the worship services, there are two additional ways to grow in your faith during Lent:
    1) A free devotional book is availalbe in the narthex or from the Church office that gives you daily devotions related to our theme.
    2) Join us LIVE online every Monday night at 8pm during Lent for a special Bible study related to our return to the Lord theme.

Holy Week @ Trinity

You're invited to join us as we celebrate Holy Week.

New this year: We will be having an Easter festival worship service on Saturday evening at 5pm to allow more people to come for Easter.

Registration is only required for the two Sunday Easter services below or by calling the church office.

Please note that all services will be available both in-person and online except for the Stations of the Cross (online only), Easter Vigil (online only), and Saturday Easter Service. (In-person only)
                                                                                         (The Stations of the Cross and Easter Vigil will be re-broadcasts from last year)

Easter Celebration

We are so excited to be able to celebrate Jesus' resurrection with you on Easter Sunday.  Not having people here for Easter last year was weird and we hope that we never need to do that again!  
Easter will look a little different this year so please check this explanation out and join us for the service that works best for you.

  1. In addition to our regular 8am and 10:30am services we will also have a 5pm service on Saturday that will be an Easter celebration like Sunday morning.
  2. Registration will be required for the 8am and 10:30am services.  This allows us to maximize the seating capacity for each service and have the most people join us as possible. We have recently moved from skipping 2 pews to only skipping 1 which will allow for more people to join us. 
  3. Please register below by Wednesday, March 31st at noon. 
  4. There won't be an Easter breakfast this year, but the youth will have some cinnamon rolls for sale between services that support their travels to the National Youth Gathering in 2022.

Register for Easter Worship

Please register all who plan to attend with you for Easter worship.  There is no registration required for the 5pm Saturday service.

Lent Live-Streams

Our evening Lent services, Easter services, and special Lent Bible Study will all be available via live-stream.  You can watch on Facebook, YouTube, here on our website, or on our app.
