We can't wait to see you this Sunday for what is sure to be a memorable day in the life of Trinity! We will all gather for ONE worship service at 9:30am, followed by a time of fellowship when you can connect with friends, old and new. Together, we will REJOICE over the story of God's faithfulness in forming and shaping this community of faith for the past 60 years.
Rev. Dan Johnson, who faithfully served as Trinity's senior pastor from 1994-2016, will be our preacher for the morning. Dan and his wife Jan are returning home to Gainesville and Trinity, and we are excited for both him and us. Other clergy present for this special occasion will be former senior pastor Rev. Dale Harward, former associates Rev. David Lindsay and Rev. Mark Becker, former Minister of Program and Administration Rev. David Dodge, former Minister of Youth & College-Age Rev. Mike Ratliff, and three persons whose calls were shaped in part through their time as members of Trinity, Rev. Laura Easter Rainwater, Rev. Jan Richardson, and Rev. Drew Weseman. In addition, former staff members Jean Evans and DJ Head will also be participating in the service.
Looking ahead, here are a few highlights of what else is coming soon:
