If you can't be with us in person this Sunday, join us via live-stream (morning only).


The Death of a King

Rev. Larry Westerveld
God promised his people a king. A succession of kings in ancient Israel never lived up to the ideal. Then, when the greatest king of all time came he was rejected, ridiculed and executed.

Join us Friday night to hear this story for the first time or again, and come to discover why your life depends on it

John 19:16b-22;    Matthew 27:39-44
It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” Many of the Jews read this inscription, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Aramaic, in Latin, and in Greek. So the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but rather, ‘This man said, I am King of the Jews.’” Pilate answered, “What I have written I have written.”

Good Friday's Musical Offerings

Our Good Friday Prelude, which begins at 6:45pm, features Joel & Janet Bacon on organ and french horn, as well as Tadako Gallione on piano. We'll also be hearing an original composition by John Silva for piano.

Together we'll be singing When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, O Jesus, We Adore Thee, O Sacred Head and The Head That Once Was Crowned.

What thou, my Lord, hast suffered
Was all for sinners' gain:
Mine, mine was the transgression,
But thine the deadly pain.



Rev. Larry Westerveld
The women who went to the graveyard Sunday morning were going to honor the body of their friend, Jesus. They had watched him die and they had followed along to watch as his body was laid to rest in the grave. So, they were surprised and perplexed when they didn’t find him at his last known location.

Join us Sunday morning as we hear the rest of their story, why it seemed like an “idle tale” when they told it to Jesus’ closest friends and as we join the entire Christian Church in celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Luke 24:1-12
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.

Easter Sunday's Musical Offerings

Join us as we sing together:
Christ the Lord is Risen Today
Christ is Risen, Christ is Living
See What a Morning
In Christ Alone

Hail, the Lord of earth and heav'n! Alleluia!
Praise to thee by both be giv'n; Alleluia!
Thee we greet triumphant now; Alleluia!
Hail, the Resurrection Thou! Alleluia!




Fulfilling Prophecy

Rev. Allen Curry
When we hear the word prophecy we tend to think of future fulfillment.  Did you ever wonder what it would be like to experience the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy?  What would it feel like?  Would it change me or frighten me? 

You need not wonder any longer.  Come to Trinity Sunday evening and you will have the opportunity to experience prophecy being fulfilled.

Micah 4:1 - 5:6
It shall come to pass in the latter days
that the mountain of the house of the LORD
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and it shall be lifted up above the hills;
and peoples shall flow to it,
and many nations shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.”

God's Big Picture

Join us for week 3 as we continue to discover how the Bible is one connected story that leads to Jesus Christ!

We'll be meeting in Social Hall from 11:00–11:30. This means the space will need to be disinfected after service. So please continue your fellowship either outside or in the Lobby. Or better yet, join us for Sunday School and fellowship afterwards! 

This summer we will explore the wonders of God's creation and the power of Jesus' miracles. If your kids love science experiments and tactile learning, this camp is going to make their summer!
First Catechism Review


36. Did Adam act for himself alone in the covenant of life?

No. He represented the whole human race

37. What effect did the sin of Adam have on all people?

We are all born guilty and sinful.

38. How sinful are you by nature?
I am corrupt in every part of my being.

39. What is the sinful nature that we inherit from Adam called?
Original sin.

40. Can anyone go to heaven with this sinful nature?
No. Our hearts must be changed before we can believe in Jesus and go to heaven.

Virtual Poetry Forum
Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I –  I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Join Jean Burch as she hosts a Trinity Church Poetry Forum on April 14, 10am-12pm via Zoom.

Choices make a difference. Poetry can make a difference. Some of you already know that. Some of you might want to explore it.

So let's get together and have some fun!

Save the date for our Spring Work Day scheduled for April 24.

Join us in the space behind the pulpit from 10:45 to 11:15. 
Masks and Social Distancing will be observed.

As our morning attendance grows and as we maintain our practice of physical distancing we are intentionally leaving room in our Auditorium for you, our guests.

In the Social Hall
Volunteers from Elder Venter's list are asked to worship in the Social Hall this Sunday morning to make space for our guests.


We are making an important change to the way we make our church calendar available. Previously, church events have been posted on our website calendar including meetings and internal goings-on. From now on, if you are wishing to check on the timing of such events, you should use Breeze either through the online church portal or through the app (if you still haven't accessed these, see the bottom of this email). We will continue to use the website calendar but only for those events and ministries of interest to the broader public.

All events will be available on the Breeze calendar which you can view under the events tab (highlighted in photo below). Events are arranged into three calendars (highlighted on the left below) which you can choose to have visible or not by clicking on them. The "Main" calendar will include all our weekly events. "Special Events" will include occasional and one-off events. And if you are on a committee, you will be able to find meeting times in the "Meetings Calendar" (I bet you didn't guess that one).

This arrangement may change a bit over time but we'll keep it intuitive and keep you informed. If you're a ministry leader there are some further functions which may be of interest to you in the Breeze calendar and you can look for further information in the near future. Happy planning!

In case you are wondering how to log in to the Trinity Breeze Portal. Here are three ways to do it.
