J.C. Chavez Memorial Service
We would like to extend an invitation to the memorial service for J.C. Chavez tomorrow, Saturday, April 9, 2022. A visitation will be held at 2pm with the service starting at 2:30pm. Please reach out to the church office with any questions.
Prayer Time
We would like to encourage you to set your alarms for 10:02 during Holy Week to pray daily for:
  • The Holy Spirit to draw people to all the Christian churches where they will be discipled and fed on the good news of Easter--Christ's empty tomb.
  • The Holy Spirit to prepare the hearts of people to receive the Gospel even as they did on Pentecost.
  • God to put a hunger and thirst for God's righteousness upon hearts.
  • The Holy Spirit to empower us to engage with people in our world as His ambassador sent to proclaim repentance and forgiveness of sins in Jesus' Name.

10:02 is taken from Luke 10:02 which reads, "The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into His fields."

Sponsor a Child's Bible
Do you know the purpose statement of Trinity's Child Development Center? We are very, very grateful for what Trinity Downtown is able to provide to local children and families through the CDC. The purpose statement is:

Trinity Lutheran School's Child Development Center
nurtures the development of the whole child 
from a core foundation of faith, 
preparing them spiritually, academically, socially, and emotionally
in partnership with their family
for future academic success and to lead purpose-filled lives for Christ.

So, in keeping with our purpose, each year Trinity Downtown gives a brand new children's Bible, The Jesus Storybook Bible, to every child who graduates from our four VPK classes. As these children leave our Lutheran child care center and begin Kindergarten at a new school, we send with them, and their families, the best gift we can give - a foundation of faith, nurturing, and the Word of God -- with a note inside that will remind them for years to come of their Trinity Family!

Each Bible is $7 or a case of 20 for $139. Please consider sponsoring one or more Bibles for these children. Checks can be sent to the office or dropped in the offering plate with VPK BIBLES written in the memo line.
Family Fun Night
Trinity's next Family Fun Night will be held on Friday, April 22, from 6:30pm-8:30pm. All ages from young to old are welcome to join in on some fun and games, whether board games or card games. The Fellowship and Outreach team will providing meat, drinks, and dessert for the evening's meal and are asking attendees to bring a side dish of their choice to share. Please contact the church office with any questions.
New Member Sunday
We are thrilled to welcome those who have recently joined our Trinity family! Due to COVID restrictions over the past few years, we have been unable to celebrate these additions and are so blessed that we can officially welcome these individuals into our community.

If you have recently joined Trinity and would like to be included in this welcome, please contact the church office at or by calling 407-488-1919.

A fellowship time will be held during the Sunday School hour (10:15-11:00) in the Fellowship Hall to connect with these individuals. Light refreshments will be served. We would love to have you join us!
