Mark Your Calendars
This coming weekend is Easter weekend. Friday, April 6th at 12pm noon, Trinity Church will have a Good Friday Communion Service. Our Good Friday service is when we set aside 45 to 50 minutes out of our busy schedules to remember the sacrifice Jesus Christ made on the cross. This service has become an annual tradition where we remember Christ’s death through an intimate service focused on the cross and communion.
Trinity’s Easter Weekend Experience will also include 4 different Easter service times: Saturday, April 7th at 5:00pm and Sunday, April 8th at 8:30am, 10am, and 11:30am. Come with expectancy and join us as we celebrate Easter! All services will be identical and offer contemporary music. We have designed age-appropriate classes for children, infant through 5th grade, during all services.
The Prize girls’ team is at it again! Our calendars are marked, and we are going to spend some time fasting and praying. We want to invite you to join us! Could you use an hour of uninterrupted worship and prayer? Do you have a need? Allow us to partner with you… We will meet in the Library at our University Campus (6701 University) from 7 to 8 pm on Tuesday, April 17th. You are welcome to stay for the entire hour, or come and go as you please. Invite someone to come along, and be doubly blessed. We hope to see you there!
