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

“He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.” Luke 13:18-19

A teacher once told my mom, “You expect too much, Tim doesn’t have a lot to work with.” Fortunately my mom never told me that until I was an adult. I will confess there were many times when I felt that attitude from the world. There were lots of times I felt like I had to work harder than everyone else just to be mediocre. There were times when the biggest guy in the room felt like the smallest and least significant.

Jesus used the mustard seed, the smallest of seeds to illustrate what God can do with a willing heart. The mustard seed grows into a massive tree that provides shelter and shade and a place for the birds to roost. God takes the insignificant, the meek, and the humble and not only makes them into things of great beauty but also uses them to do great things. We are reminded in a world divided by haves and have nots, essential workers and those shielded from exposure; that God has a heart for the outcasts and those who do the thankless work in our midst. Those who are marginalized but drive the trucks, stock the grocery shelves, change bedpans in nursing homes and maintain the supply chains that keep us comfortable are the real heroes. Thank God for the mustard seed workers, we take for granted how much we depend on them.

Let us pray,
Loving God, open our eyes to see those around us who live in our shadows. Help us to see those who make our comfortable lives possible. Thank you for working in and through the least among us. Make us thankful this day. In Jesus precious name we pray. Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim

“For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!” Luke 12:23-24

I don’t know about you, but I need to be reminded—A LOT! I need to be reminded that God loves me and values me. You probably need to be reminded too. You need to be reminded that GOD LOVES YOU. God doesn’t love you because of what you do, God loves you because of who you are; a child of God. Most of us don’t feel worthy of God’s love and the truth is we are not worthy. But God’s love isn’t conditional, God’s love isn’t based on our ability to make the right choices. All parents know that we love our children in spite of their choices not because of their choices. But if you are like me, you need to be reminded that God loves you.

This is a hard time. It is hard to be isolated. It is hard to be lonely. Living in six foot increments can keep us from seeing the love in our lives. As we sort through the abundance of feelings caused by our world being turned upside down we need to be reminded that God loves us. Recently I was sitting outside and talking on my phone. A hummingbird with beautiful blue and emerald feathers flew up to me and hovered inches away from me for almost a minute before flying away. It was so beautiful. FACT: If God takes care of birds, God will take care of us. Sometimes we need to be reminded. Every time we go outdoors this summer we have an opportunity to look around and remember through all the beauty around us that God is watching over us. Remember that God loves you!

Let us pray,
Holy God, we are thankful that the beauty of creation reminds us of your love. Help us as we slowly reenter life to be wise and careful. Guide us to spread love and joy. Teach us to depend on you in all circumstances. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim

Thank you Tim!!!!

Mom has 2 birdfeeders outside and we've all spent hours watching the birds. It's our main entertainment these days and everyday it seems like new! I'm happy that hummingbird caught your eye. Looking forward to being back at church and up in the booth.

“And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?” Luke 12:19-20

Our world values accumulation. “The one who dies with the most toys wins.” Have you seen that bumper sticker? The people who are looked up to are the people who have a lot of stuff. As Americans most would rather rent storage units than get rid of our stuff. Millions have so much stuff in their garage that there is no room to park their car in the garage. We love to have yard sales and garage sales so that they can make space to go out and buy more stuff. We love our stuff. Jesus told the story of the farmer who built bigger barns, stored all the harvest and sat back in the “lazy boy” to “eat, drink and be merry” for the rest of his days. It didn’t turn out as he expected.
As stocks crash and retirement accounts evaporate, we are reminded that maybe we trusted too much in the wrong things. Maybe if we trusted God more and our stuff less, we would not be hurting so much. Jesus calls us to live a gospel of generosity. We forget that the new math is God’s math where “the first are last and the last are first.” God’s math shows that those who give, receive. It is said that when J. C. Penny (the founder of the department store empire) died someone asked Penny’s attorney how much he left behind. The lawyer casually said, “All of it.” Grateful living is generous living and it is life-giving.

Let us pray,
Giver of life and love, you continue to shower us with more than we can ask for or even imagine. Help us to live a life of gratitude and generosity and help us to honor you with the things we seek. Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim

On Sunday we celebrated Pentecost with drive through communion.  Approximately 80 people came to church to receive the sacrament from the pastor.  No one got out of their cars, precautions were taken, and God’s presence in a fractured, hurting world was made a bit more real.  Members, neighbors and friends of Trinity participated.  Special thanks to the Elders who prepared communion and made the process run smoothly.  Blessings abound even in a pandemic.Image attachmentImage attachment
