Service Details

Welcome to Trinity Church!

We are part of the mainline Protestant church and are a congregation of the United Church of Christ.

We celebrate a great deal of diversity in terms of theological beliefs and social values. We are welcoming, we are affirming and will not judge you for who you are or how you think.

We are liberal and conservative, moderate and mainstream, progressive and traditional. We stress individual experiences of the presence of God in our world over doctrine. We are tolerant and respect the beliefs and faiths of all people.

 

Our Mission

That All may know the Love of Jesus Christ through heartfelt worship and faith development while celebrating the presence of God in the World today

Dear Friends,
 

We are about to embark on a journey. The season of Lent has often been described as a journey to the cross.  The church has historically stressed three things during lent: prayer, fasting and sacrificial giving to help the poor. In the 21st century these things seem beyond archaic.  In our busy world many admit they can’t find time to pray. Super-sized fast food meals make fasting seem out of most people’s reach and sacrificial giving to anything is not an inspiring goal for most people.

 

This season of preparation is designed to get our hearts right with God so that the full joy of the resurrection defines our Easter celebration.  Modern day theologian Richard Rohr reminds us: “If it is a true Gospel message, it will be more about re-grounding, reshaping and redirecting you from your core.”

 

I think Rohr is on to something. My hope is that this Lenten journey is one that is re-grounding, re-shaping and re-directing to the core of our being. We begin with dust and ashes and end with lilies and alleluias. Throughout the in-between time—the forty days of reflection, self-examination and remembrance of the wondrous love of a savior who bled and died for us—let’s use this journey to the cross to ask the internal “Why Question.”  Why do I call Jesus Lord and how does that change my life? Why do I want to be a disciple of Jesus and how does that shape the way I live?  Why do I pray to this God who was willing to suffer and died to demonstrate love? Why am I not more committed to doing the things that are important to the God I claim?

 

Understanding the “why of our faith” changes the depth of our prayers, leads us to re-think the meaning of fasting and sacrificial giving becomes a holy opportunity for joy and gratitude instead of an unwanted obligation that becomes a burden.   Lent is an opportunity for re-grounding, re-shaping and re-directing our core as we pay attention to nurturing our souls.

 

One of the primary tools we have to ground, shape and direct our lives in lent is our midweek worship.  Each Wednesday in Lent at 7:00 p.m. we gather for worship. My goal is for it to be a mid-week spiritual oasis that allows us to hit the pause button and breathe in the presence of God as we sing, pray, and listen for the voice of love that radiates from the cross and beckons us into the outstretched arms of God. Like most things in life we will get out of it what we put into it.  My prayer for you is that we all put our whole hearts into this journey. If we do that, Lent will ground, shape and direct us in ways that bring new life. 

 

Faithfully,
Tim
