is to build a healing community with God and each other through worship, prayer and living the Gospel.
Come join us during Lent and travel with us on our journey
There will be soup suppers with Bible Study and Evening Prayer starting at 5:30 PM on Wednesdays. Everyone can bring a can of non-cream soup and we can get a loaf or two of fresh bread from a supermarket and have a simple supper together.
The study book will be "Meeting God in Mark", by Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury. Books can be purchased on Amazon for under $10, but if you are not an Amazon shopper you can purchase one through the office. Just let us know if you will be attending and if a lack of child care is something that would prevent oyu from coming.
Easter Flower Memorials/Thanksgivings
Please have your Easter Flower Memorial/Thanksgivings submitted by March 18. This will enable the flowers to be ordered and the Memorials made up for the bulletin for Easter Sunday.
Forms are in the bulletin or you can print one out by clicking here and bring it to Sunday Service March 18 or mail it directly to the office by then.
For flower orders please make checks out to Trinity Church and note Altar Guild in the memo line. Memorials without a flower order can be made with or without a donation.
New Prayer Books
We will be purchasing some new prayer books to replace our "well used" versions. If you wish to purcahse one in memory of someone please let the office know. The cost are estimated is around $13 per book.

Hall Reservation policy
Since the completion of the under-croft in addition to the main parish hall, we have experienced a significant increase in hall reservations this past year. In order to ensure that all reservations can be accommodated there is a new policy going in effect for all reservations going forward.
All requests (Scouts, Non-profit organizations, clubs, individuals) must complete the Parish Hall Usage Agreement and submit it to the Office for confirmation and a reserved time and location.
Please print out the form (or request a form from the Office), fill it out, include all the required documents, and submit it to the Office. Once received the Office will review it and make the reservation as long as time, date, and the hall location is available.
Remember - No reservation will be made until the interested person/group has received an email from the Church Office stating the date, time, hall location that the reservation has been confirmed for.
Trinity Church now has a way for you to make electronic offerings to the church right from your personal computer/smart phone. This new service allows you to give any amount, at anytime, from home or on the road, with your computer or even your mobile device.
