Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Join us on March 1 for a special time of worship marking Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of Lent
.   We will gather that evening at 6:35pm for a unique, meaningful service in the Worship Center with seating in the round. This day historically marks the beginning of a time of preparation for persons of Christian faith. We turn our hearts to God and recommit to walking the journey that will lead us to the cross, where we encounter the depth of God's love, and on to an empty grave, where we find hope in the power of God's love even over death. It will also serve as the kickoff to our Lent worship series, The Restoration Project.
 
You can share a meal with other members of the Trinity community beforehand. Dinner is served between 5 and 6:30pm. Childcare is available during the service for 5th grade and under, although families may find it meaningful for older elementary children to participate with them in the service. More Lent offerings 
Mission Box 
The mission box this week supports our chartered Boy Scout Troop 454 on Scout Sunday. The proceeds of the Mission Box will go toward troop equipment, travel and scholarships. Also, a portion will be given to the district to help fund their scholarship program and district camps. Scouting builds leadership skills and character development in our youth to help them succeed in life. (Text-to-give keyword: scouts)
