Lenten Journey

Our Lenten journey begins at Trinity with Ash Wednesday worship on February 26th at 7:00 pm. Join us for the imposition of ashes and Holy Communion.

You are then invited to join us Evening Prayer on the Thursdays of Lent, starting March 5th. Evening Prayer is at 6:30 pm, preceded by a simple soup supper at 5:30 pm.

And, of course, you can join us on the Sunday in Lent at 9:30 am, followed by fellowship and coffee. Faith Adventures, youth programming, and adult learning also happen on most Sunday mornings.

Consider accompanying us on our Lenten journey!

“Return to the Lord, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love.”

Youth Worker Update

Trinity had advertised that we were hiring a youth worker for a one-year contract position to begin this fall. We received applications, and an interview committee met with candidates. A name was put forward to council for endorsement at their June meeting.

We are glad to announce that Heidi Van Schaik has been offered, and has accepted, the youth worker position! Congratulations, Heidi!

Look for updates on youth ministry programming for the fall with Heidi at the helm.
