Welcome to Trinity,

Re-opening for worship

Trinity’s doors are scheduled to open for in-person worship services
on Sunday, June 21! Details are included in the VOT.

Check back here periodically for updates on what days the food pantry will be open.

The Trinity Food Pantry has now hosted two mobile food distributions on Monday, July 27th and August 10th, since being closed for the construction at Trinity and the exterior of the Food Pantry and due to COVID-19.


Here are ways you can help and support the Food Pantry ministry:

  • Volunteer to help for any or all of the time on the days of the distribution. Setup will begin at 8:00 am and cleanup is completed around 2:30 pm.
  • Pass the word on to anyone who may benefit from the food distribution or has a food need. Please look for future food distribution dates for the fall.
  • Support the Food Pantry financially and with your prayers.

   Thank you to all the leaders, volunteers and supporters of the Trinity Food Pantry ministry!

Food for Thought

Sunday, October 18, 2020
Read Matthew 22:15-22

In this tense episode, Jesus is questioned by the Pharisees and the Herodians, who have evil intentions toward Him.  They want to set a trap for Jesus, so they ask Him a “double-edged” question: “Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?” Their plan is that if Jesus says, “No,” then He is in trouble with the Romans, and if He says, “Yes,” then He is in trouble with the Jews. Either way, if the strategy works, Jesus will be in trouble, condemned, maybe even destroyed. But Jesus answers them with challenging questions of His own. Let’s consider our own responses to Jesus’ challenging questions: Do we “test” Jesus with double-minded questions; and we do we give to our civil government loyalty and service that we should give only to God?

  • In today’s divisive social and political climate, do you sometimes wish that Jesus would take a stand and condemn one side and praise the other? Does it challenge you that “both sides” think God is on their side? Is He on “your side”?
  • What part of you belongs to and serves our civil government, and what part of you belongs to and serves only God?
