Worship: Sundays @ 9:30, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Sunday Worship
Hollywood's got nothing on the Bible this summer. This season's hottest film hitting the big screen can't compare to the blockbuster stories about the prophets Elijah and Elisha found in the pages of 1 and 2 Kings. Join us for this riveting series about a couple of God's boldest and best-known witnesses.

This week's message will be " When Slaves are Wiser than Kings," by Rev. Steve Price.
Wednesday Worship
This week's message will be " Old Keys, New Doors," by Dakota Storm-Lewis.
No Bull Bibles & Brew
Come on out to Crafty Bastard's Restaurant and Pub the 1st Monday of each month for No Bull. Have a favorite beverage and listen to the Trinity band in the bar area from 5:30 to 6:10, then connect with others for spirited conversation about life and faith from 6:10 to 7:00. Bring a friend and join in the fun!

Anniversary Celebration
Save the dates! On Sundays, August 11, 18 and 25,  we'll be celebrating the 60th anniversary of Trinity.  
 
On August 18, we'll have ONE worship service at 9:30 am and Rev. Dan Johnson will be back to give the message. Afterwards, please stay for fellowship with heavy hors d'oeuvres.  
 
On August 25th, please join us after the 11:00am service for fellowship, food trucks, and children's activities. 
Mission Box
This week's Mission Box is for Bread of the Mighty Food Bank. Their mission is to provide hope and encouragement to the hungry and food insecure. They acquire, sort, store, and distribute food to non-profit programs that provide for the needy. To learn more check out their website and see how you can help to close the ever growing gap between those who need food and food that is available.

New Worship Schedule Begins September 1
We are pleased to announce that a new Sunday worship schedule will begin on September 1. Three weekly services will be offered, including an 8:15 service in the Chapel followed by 9:30 and 11:00 services in the Worship Center. As Trinity seeks to provide multiple distinct worship experiences on a weekly basis that connect with people across a broad range of ages and style preferences, this new schedule will help us offer our very best at each.
