Trinity Pastoral Counseling Center continues to serve our clients.

There has been tremendous change and uncertainty recently due to COVID-19. We
have adapted by offering telehealth services. Therapists are working
from their homes and connecting with clients as scheduled. Thank you for
your ongoing prayers as we work together in facing this situation.

Stewardship and Finance Update

Your Stewardship & Finance Team continues to monitor the church’s finance in light of the Coronavirus. The advice given continues to include good hygiene and limiting touching, especially hand-to-hand. Starting on Sunday, March 8, 2020, we have stopped the passing of baskets at the early service and offering plates at the later service. Instead stationary baskets are placed in front of the altar and people are invited to bring their offering, tithe, or gift forward after the stewardship moment. This change is to keep everyone safe. If you do not feel comfortable coming forward or you feel it is best to stay home to protect yourself and others if you are not feeling well, you can still give and support God’s work here at Trinity. You can give by using our Q-R code, electronic bank transfer, PayPal on our website, or even by mailing in your offering to the church office. You do not have to be physically present to give and support the ministries of your church. Thank you for your continued support of our church.

In the Name of our  

Risen Lord  & Savior Jesus Christ, 
Welcome to Trinity
 
 
Thank you for visiting!  As you begin to learn more about Trinity Church, we invite you to join us in worship one Sunday. It is our prayer that you will intentionally deepen your relationship with Christ and sense God’s personal, purposeful call to be  part of the life and ministry of a vital church.  None of us are meant to be an island, and we would love for Trinity to be a meaningful place of connection for you… your church family.
