Coming to Trinity Saturday, March 24, 2018, 9am to 11:30am, is "Walk with Jesus" - a powerfully moving, multi-station, multi-sensory event that guides you through Jesus' last days on earth. You will travel to Jerusalem for Palm Sunday, sit down for the Last Supper, discover the sacrifice of Good Friday and visit the empty tomb that very first Easter morning. Appropriate for all ages and designed for parents and children to experience together. REGISTRATION FORMS IN THE NARTHEX

Let's show some love! Take Them a Meal
(THANK YOU to the three Trinity families who have signed up to take a meal to this family!  Your hospitality and generosity is greatly appreciated!!)  Trinity teen Zach M. has had heart surgery and is homebound to stay away from flu germs as he recovers.  During this time, in the midst of lots of doctors appointments and extra bills to pay, we'd love to rally the Trinity family to help out with meals to show a little love and care to the family - a family of four. We've set up a "Take them a Meal" site to allow for scheduling of meal drop offs and even the option to have something in their area delivered to them. Please note:  Zach has a severe nut allergy (no nuts or nut oils in the food please). The link to sign up is . Thank you for participating as you are able!

We just received a letter from a prisoner who wanted to share their thanks for how Trinity's Angel Tree project blessed his family.  It was incredibly touching. Read more here .
