Desert Wanderings: Exploring Questions of Faith
This year during Lent, 6:35 worship on Wednesdays will be an experiment in giving you a chance to help define the direction of each week’s message. For six weeks, Catherine and Steve will be preaching on your questions about faith. Where do you struggle in being a follower of Jesus? What question related to faith keeps you up at night? If you could have a one-on-one with Jesus, what question would you ask him to help you understand better? What troubles or confuses you in the Bible?
Here’s how it works. Between now and March 3, submit your question here. All the questions will be gathered, printed on slips of paper, and put into a basket. Each Wednesday, beginning with Ash Wednesday (March 6), a member of the congregation will be invited to draw one of the questions out of the basket (without looking). The question will be read aloud and the following Wednesday, the message will address that question. So join us on Wednesdays this season and invite your friends to come along, too.
Worship services are offered at 6:35pm on Wednesdays in the Chapel.
Celtic Rhythms: Keeping Time with God
The season of Lent (40 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter) is a time for deepening our faith. This year, we will let the Celts be our teachers in drawing closer to God’s own heart. By exploring some core spiritual elements that define the Celtic tradition – finding God in the ordinary, seeking God in creation, silence and solitude, the Iorica (breastplate prayer), and the Celtic High Cross - perhaps you’ll discover a new rhythm for daily living that helps you keep better time with God.
Worship services are offered on Sundays at 8:15, 9:40 and 11:00am in the Worship Center. If you are unable to attend in person, we also live stream our 9:40am service on our website.
“It's All Good”
Rev. Steve Price
“Seeking Silence and Solitude”
Rev. Catherine Fluck Price
“Lift High the Cross”
Rev. Steve Price
Inspired by Celtic music traditions and using folk songs, hymns, and sacred songs, come hear the assurance of God’s love and grace through the redemptive work of Christ on Calvary, as the combined adult choirs (Chalice and Chancel Choir) offer a cantata by Joseph Martin, “The Canticle of the Cross.” Scripture, prayer, and poetry weave the music together for a reflective message on Palm Sunday. We will offer only two services this Sunday as the choir offers the cantata at both the 9:40 and 11:00 services. There will be no 8:15 service on Palm Sunday.
On Wednesday, April 17, please join us for our 6:35 pm Worship Service on the lawn in front of the Worship Center. If you'd like, please come early to join us for our weekly Wednesday Night Dinner that begins at 5pm.
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.
