Rev. David Wiseman, long-time friend of Trinity, looks at the Christian cross - its beginning, meaning, and how that shapes our faith. What can the cross tell us about the nature of God? And what does that reveal to us about 'good trouble, necessary trouble'? Join us in worship for a renewed perspective and nourishment for your week ahead!

We are grateful for the participation of many friends in today's service! Thank you to the 'other David' for the message, given while our David takes time to rest and rejuvinate with family. It was wonderful to see Lillie Pearce, Lexi Everett, Kim Hill, Connie and Tom Carrigan, Jenny Lhotsky, Lia Catalano, and Shelley Clayton, too - thank you for your willingness to help!
Session has suspended activities held at Trinity through September 20, 2020.
Please know that Trinity's elders, deacons, and staff are praying for you, your loved ones, and your friends as we follow state guidelines to restrict the spread of Covid-19. If you should have a care concern or celebration you'd like to share, please email David or the church office.
Jon and Amanda Bernardina are thrilled to share that Baby Bernardina #2 is due to arrive in very early March. Amanda adds that they can't wait to see everyone in person again when it is safe!
Please keep Katie McDermott, Nancy Elder's daughter, in your prayers. Katie continues to heal from surgery to remove her gallbladder. Please pray for successful pain management, healing, and an easy recovery for Katie.
Bobby Nelson’s stepfather’s first cousin, Russell Capps, has been diagnosed with colon cancer and has spots on his liver. Betsy and Bobby have asked that we keep Russell and his wife Gayle in our prayers as they and his doctors make a decision on a course of treatment/or no treatment. May God’s healing hand be upon him and guide them in their decision.
Please keep Jo Dunnigan's mother in your prayers. She tested positive for Covid-19 and is unfortunately not improving.
Joe Thompson's sister, Gayle Peacock, has received some bad news. She has been treated for pancreatic cancer for the past year and had been doing better. However, the doctors found two spots on her stomach, and they believe she may have only a few months to live. Please keep Gayle and her whole family in your prayers.
Missy, our Preschool Director, is busy planning a safe, engaging program for the fall at Trinity's Preschool. Focusing on CDC guidelines, the teachers are excited to safely welcome children back on September 8th. Enrollment is limited; there are currently openings for 3 year olds. To learn more, email Missy or go online.
If you don't recognize where this is located, we wouldn't blame you! It's the road and grounds behind the church, judiciously cleared for better sight-lines and tree health, thanks to our Property Team. Feel free to drive by and take a look! And thank you to Frank Breazeale, a gifted photographer, for capturing this, and many other beautiful pictures of nature at Trinity.
As we continue to pay the church's unchanging monthly obligations, we remain sincerely grateful for your giving. Your faithfulness, generosity, and helpfulness are more than appreciated! As a staff note, Virginia continues to check the mail (and voicemail) as she is able.
We recognize that for many people this is an uncertain time, and know that you may not have the income you had before the pandemic. If you find yourself in a difficult position and would like to request financial assistance from the church, please write a confidential email to David.
