Al Jenkins has built a great resource box which is located right outside of the front door of the building. Inside you will find printed worship bulletins, some devotional material, some bibles, and other information that we hope will be of help. Please, help yourself!
(Make sure you wash your hands!)
Worship Service will be online at 9:00AM
Trinity will be offering a drive-thru palm and/or Easter egg pick-up on Saturday, April 4 from 10:00-12:00. What will that look like? If you'd like a palm for your home to celebrate Palm Sunday, drive on through the line! If you have young children at home, we will have bags of filled Easter eggs (12/child) for you to take home, along with other activities for your family to use during Holy Week.
An evening prayer: Keep watch, dear Lord with those who work or watch or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, comfort the afflicted, shield the joyous; all for your love's sake. Amen.

Mid-Week Lenten Series 2020 - Faces at the Cross
"The central event of the Christian faith is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That unitive event of cross and resurrection is the core of the apostolic preaching; it is also the central celebration of the church's liturgy. It is the focus of the church year: Lent prepares for it, and the great Fifty Days are a celebration of it. . . It is one event, seen from two sides; cross and resurrection, each incomplete without the other."
During our mid-week worships during Lent we will be spending time at the cross, using Mark 15 as our guide. In particular, we will be imagining what it must have been like for particular people in this central event; Pilate and the soldiers; Simon of Cyrene; the bandits; Mary, Mary, and Salome; and Jesus himself.
We will be using "Holden Evening Prayer" as our order of worship. Hymn after message; offering brought forward during "Magnificat".
