Good Friday Cantata

April 19, 2019

This year for Good Friday, the Celebration Singers sang the It Is Finished A Tenebrae Service cantata by Mary McDonald headed up by Trinity’s music director, Mike Hetzel. The Celebration Singers were joined by two guests, Mikey Hetzel on drums, and Lou Frank who did the speaking parts inbetween songs. It was a beautiful and memorable service.

Every year, Trinity UCC partakes in the Symbolic Seder Meal on the Thursday of Holy Week. This year, Pastor Susan led us in worship and prayer as those gathered shared the symbolic meal, drink, and fellowship. It is always a nice time for fellowship, and spending time in thoughtfulness and prayer.

Palm Sunday 2019

April 14. 2019

We started Holy Week by standing in the Gathering Space holding our palms as we got ready to enter the sanctuary. There was excitement among us as we continued this annual tradition. We then processed into the sanctuary to the anthem Great Our Joy played by Mike Hetzel, waving our palms in celebration of Jesus’ triumph entrance into Jerusalem.

Jazz Worship & Mardi Gras Luncheon 2019

March 3, 2019

On March 3, 2019, Trinity UCC celebrated its annual Jazz Worship and Mardi Gras Style Luncheon. The worship service was filled with jazz inspired worship music, musicians, smiles, and just great fun. Everyone came dressed in Mardi Gras colors, beads, and Jazz wear - including Pastor Susan. During time with our youngest worshipers, the children learned how many parts make a whole. Following worship, the Mission Committee sponsored a Mardi Gras inspired luncheon. We had about 80 people in attendance, and all proceeds went to Backbay Mission, in Biloxi, Mississippi. This is an event that everyone at Trinity looks forward too each year and every year it just keeps getting better and better.

Scout Sunday 2019

February 10, 2019

We love our scouts! So, every year we honor the scouts with a special Scout Sunday worship service. We honor the boy and girl scouts that belong to Trinity - young and old - as well as those who belong to Troop 21. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any pictures, but we were able to get one where Pastor Susan invited all the scouts to join her for worship with our youngest worshipers. This year, we celebrated the scouts on February 10, 2019.

Annual Meeting for 2018

January 27, 2019

Every year, Trinity UCC members come together and hold an Annual Corporate Meeting to discuss the good of our church (even the children are included in this meeting). We first share worship and then a meal and then get right down to business with the meeting. We discuss everything from committee reports, to nominations for the council, to the finances and budget. It is a time for prayer, reflection, and open conversation. This year, our annual meeting was held on January 27, 2019.

Children's Christmas Program 2018

On December 16, 2018 the children of Trinity put on their annual Christmas pageant. This is an event that all of Trinity looks forward to every year. The kids love performing, and have formed quite a little acting troupe. This year the children did the birth story of Jesus, a favorite of so many. They all did a wonderful job, and we look forward to seeing what the children do for 2019.

Rally Day 2018

Trinity UCC brought in a new church year with our pulpit supply pastor, Pastor Howie (who is always a joy to have at Trinity). There was singing and joy and many many blessings as many came back to gather after vacations and taking off for the summer. We also brought in a new Sunday School year, and we were very blessed to have so many children return to us. Rally Day is always a fun, but special time in the life of a church, and Trinity is no exception to this.

Trinity Church Picnic 2018

Trinity UCC's annual church picnic is our way to celebrate the end of the church year. We experienced brilliant blue skies, the music was great, the message was moving, and the food and fellowship was top notch. We saw a lot of old faces and new faces, and we always love having guests. Fun was had by young and old and we can't wait to celebrate the upcoming church year.
