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.

Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors! that the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle! Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors!  that the King of glory may come in.  Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory! Psalm 24:7-10

Today is Palm Sunday and Psalm 24 is often read in churches all over the world on Psalm Sunday.  The psalm expresses the sheer joy of the messiah, the Holy One, entering into the Holy City Jerusalem. This year our churches will be silent.  Earlier this week I saw these images of Pope Frances leading worship in an empty St. Peter’s square. 
  
It is unfathomable that a virus could send the church into “digital exile.” In this momentous time in the history of Christianity, it is important as our churches sit empty for praise to rise up from our hearts and our homes. As we wave palm branches virtually, we continue to proclaim that Jesus is the Christ. We affirm that the pandemic will one day pass away but God will never stop being the Lord of the living and the dead. God is not diminished by a virus and so we collectively sigh and cry out Hosanna in the Highest.

Let us pray,
You are the king of glory. You continue to reign over creation and so this day we set aside all the steals our peace and thank you God for being you.  Spare the suffering, soothe the dying, comfort the broken hearted and pull forth the hosannas from our parched lips.  In the name of Jesus the Christ, we pray. Amen.

Faithfully,

“I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart and tell about the wonders you have worked.
God Most High, I will rejoice; I will celebrate and sing because of you.

The poor can run to you because you are a fortress in times of trouble. Everyone who honors your name can trust you, because you are faithful to all who depend on you.” Psalm 9:1-2, 9-10

I am a story guy. I am a storyteller at heart, and I love to hear other people’s stories. A song we sometimes sing called “Give Thanks” says “Let the Weak say I am Strong, Let the Poor say I am Rich.” There is a lot to unpack in that simple lyric. We may appear weak until we tell what God has done in our lives and then suddenly we seem strong. We may seem poor by the world’s standards until we tell our “God story” then suddenly it is evident we are rich.

Gratitude emerges from an understanding of what we have. Many people struggle to feel grateful because they are so focused on what they DON’T HAVE. However, when we focus on what we do have we find that we not only have a reason for gratitude, we also have more than we need. Even in hard times we have reason to rejoice.

Let us pray,
Holy God, lover of sinners, protector of the realm, we turn to you in this hour of need asking for you to help us tell our story of your work in our lives. Use us to inspire and strengthen others. We thank you for being a fortress in times of trouble. We pray in the precious and holy name of Jesus. Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim

“You, Lord God, are my protector. Rescue me and keep me safe from all who chase me.” Psalm 7:1

In a world of pandemic viruses, stock market crashes and lost wages it is easy for us to on climb aboard the runaway train that is about to go off the rails. We can be taken down with the gathering mob of what if’s. What if I can’t pay my mortgage or my rent? What if I can’t afford food? What if someone I love gets sick? We can fabricate real or possible danger around every corner. We are more prone to give in to that kind of thinking when we forget the promises of God.

The one we worship is a protector who promises to rescue us and keep us safe. I cannot promise that there will not be bad news, nor can I promise that life won’t thoroughly test us. What I can promise is that God stands ready to protect, rescue and renew. God never really lets us out of his sight. And what I can promise is that God is strong enough to protect us and lead us through to better times regardless of what tomorrow brings.

Let us pray,
Loving God. You are my shield and protector. You keep safe those who’s long to live in your love. Give us enough joy to sing, enough trust to rest, enough hope to be generous, even faith to persevere. In the name of the crucified Christ we pray. Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim
