    Good Friday Worship Services (April 19)

    We will be offering two Worship Services on Good Friday (April 19). Childcare will be available for both services.

    Noon in the Chapel
    Scripture says beginning at noon darkness came over the whole land as Christ was crucified.  We will gather at noon to remember God’s purpose of loving and redeeming the world through the cross of Christ in the beauty and simplicity of the Trinity Chapel.

    7:00pm in the Memorial Garden
    Tenebrae comes from the Latin word meaning “darkening.”  As the sun begins to set on Good Friday, we’ll gather in the Trinity Memorial Garden to worship using the ancient service of Tenebrae, the gradual diminishing of light through the extinguishing of candles.  This symbolizes the events of the week from Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem through Jesus' burial.  We will leave in silence as we ponder the impact of Christ’s death and await the coming Resurrection.

    Easter Sunday Worship (April 21)

    Join us for one of 4 services on Easter Sunday:

    Easter Sunrise in the Memorial Garden
    If you’re an early riser, then meet us in the Garden as the sun rises. Youth Director, Rebekah Saveland will be preaching, and the Trinity youth will be leading worship and music. This will also be a beautiful opportunity to celebrate baptisms on this resurrection Sunday. Please contact the pastors if you or your child would like to make a profession of faith in Christ and/or be baptized.

    8:15, 9:40 or 11:00 in the Worship Center
    As we celebrate the resurrection, these three services will be held in the Worship Center with music offered by Chalice Adult Choir, Sonlight Youth Choir and the Chancel Choir respectively. Rev. Catherine Fluck Price will be preaching. If you have children, join us for a special Easter morning in Sunday School at 9:40 and/or 11:00 where you’ll hear the good news that Jesus has risen! In lieu of an Easter Egg hunt, every child will receive a goody bag filled with Easter treats and we’ll have child care during all three services.

    There will be no UMYF on Easter Sunday. 

    Feel free to bring flowers for the flowering cross in front of the Worship Center.

    Easter Parking: We’re looking forward to Easter and welcoming new friends and old ones too.  In light of the anticipated crowd, we’ll have parking guides to direct cars where to park.  We appreciate your willingness to follow their directions.  If you have mobility issues, please simply let them know, and they will direct you to the spots nearest the building where you desire to enter.  We encourage those who are able bodied to follow directions and park around to the rear of the facilities. The gate connecting to Talbot will also be open and you are welcome to park there as well.  Again, thank you in advance for helping us to be as welcoming as possible to our guests and those with limited mobility.

    Invite a Friend: Easter is a wonderful opportunity to invite a friend, neighbor or co-worker to Trinity.  Let them know where you will meet them prior to worship….or better yet, offer to pick them up and give them a ride.  For someone who hasn’t been to church before (or in a long time), walking up to church by yourself can be an intimidating idea.  You might even invite them to have lunch with you afterwards.  Thanks for helping Trinity go from “the steeple to the streets” and reach out to the community. 

    If you will be unable to join us Easter Sunday, we will be live streaming both the 9:40 and 11:00 am services on our website and our youtube channel.
