easterEaster Sunday Worship
Please join us for one of 4 Worship Services:

Easter Sunrise in the Memorial Garden - If you're an early riser, then meet us at 7:00 am 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.
Desert Wanderings: Exploring Questions of Faith
This week we finish Desert Wanderings, our 6:35 worship series for Lent. Each week, one of our pastors has been sharing a message based on your questions about faith.  

This week's message will be, "Worth Counting On," by Rev. Steve Price.  Just a reminder that the 6:35 service this week will be meeting on the lawn in front of the Worship Center.
Mission Box
This week our Mission Box is for ZOE. ZOE's vision is to see a world where all orphans and vulnerable children become secure, healthy, connected, and able to care for themselves and their siblings. They are motivated by the Biblical call for Christians to help one another. ZOE reaches out in love to all vulnerable children and those wishing to partner with them, regardless of their beliefs, so they may experience the love of God with physical, social, psychological, and spiritual healing.  (Text giving: text amount and "ZOE" to 352-204-0163) 
Wednesday Night Dinners
Join us for food, fun & fellowship. April 17 will be a lawn picnic. Dairy and gluten free options are available. Adult meals are $7, children 6 and up are  $3, 0-5 eat free with a  $25  family cap.  
It takes a lot of hands to make this weekly fellowship successful. If you are able to assist the kitchen in any way please contact Chris Riggs.

  1. Greeting and directing cars as they drive onto the campus
  2. Greeting, answering questions and directing folks outside near the entrances of the Worship Center and Education Building
  3. Greeting and intentionally connecting with folks right where you sit in worship by becoming a section leader
Join us during Holy Week!
Wednesday (April 17)
Our 6:35pm Worship Service will be held on the lawn in front of the Worship Center.  
Thursday (April 18) 
We will be offering a Seder meal at 5:30pm in the Worship Center. Reservations are required, there are just a few seats left. If you are interested, please contact Alice.
Good Friday Worship (April 19)
12pm in the Chapel: Scripture says beginning at noon darkness came over the whole land as Christ was crucified.  We will gather at noon to remember God's purpose of loving and redeeming the world through the cross of Christ in the beauty and simplicity of the Trinity Chapel.
7pm in the Memorial Garden: Tenebrae comes from the Latin word meaning "darkening."  As the sun begins to set on Good Friday, we'll gather in the Trinity Memorial Garden to worship using the ancient service of Tenebrae, the gradual diminishing of light through the extinguishing of candles.  This symbolizes the events of the week from Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem through Jesus' burial.  We will leave in silence as we ponder the impact of Christ's death and await the coming Resurrection.
Easter Sunday (April 21)
Please join us for one of four worship services at 7, 8:15, 9:40 or 11am. You can find out more details here.
