For many at Trinity, you may have little idea that just over a year ago we hired a consulting firm. Our leaders wanted help assessing whether or not we were ready to undertake a fund-raising effort to fund comprehensive renovations for our facility....Keep Reading

On the evening of December 11, we held a vision meeting to explain to the Trinity family the specifics of our call to plant a church in our network. The meeting was very encouraging! We outlined our inward call to plant a church, the process of evaluating that call with leadership both at Trinity and in our denomination, the need in the Mulberry area, and the vision for planting a gospel-centered church there. We’re calling this mission Greater Hope....
When the LORD led His people, Israel, across the wilderness and finally into the Promised Land, He ended a series of conspicuous miracles with one more big one. He miraculously stopped the flow of the River Jordan so that they could walk across on dry land. If you think about it, that would be an amazing sight to witness! ...
I remember vividly the lady who (along with my parents) helped lead me to Christ – Nellie Hatch. Her life had dramatically changed with her own conversion about a decade prior to mine. What stood out was how truly good she was. She was energetic (at 70 years of age, jumping rope daily), kind, warm, genuine, powerfully honest, profoundly wise, and above all things joyful!...
As we all prepare for the Christmas holiday and anticipate spending time with family and friends, and for many of us receive a much needed break from the daily grind, this can be a great time of the year to step back from our regular routine and reflect on 2016. What have you seen God do in your life this past year? How has God used the circumstances and people in your life to help you grow in your faith in Him? What do you need God to help you with (physically, spiritually, emotionally…etc) for you to be successful in the coming year?...
Buildings are tools. And thankfully our church building is a valuable tool to help us to get done the work we believe God has called us to do. We don’t merely host worship services. Our physical home is a base for ministries to Trinity’s children, students, women, men and beyond. We’ve hosted a myriad of other ministries (like Parker St. Ministries, counselors, SeeJe...Keep Reading
I heard a woman say with some excitement, “We’re getting a new home!” When talking of home improvements, common terms get used but what is meant can vary significantly. “We’re getting a new home” can mean 1) we’re building a new house; or 2) we’re buying an existing house that’s new to us; or 3) we’re fixing up our existing home so considerably that it ...Keep Reading
Because of my involvement with the Navy SEAL Foundation, I recently got to be with some of these very special warriors. They’re more trained in weaponry than probably anyone else on our planet. And yet they do not wall themselves in with their skills. They go out beyond the safety of fortresses to engage dangerous enemies. They risk their lives to protect people like you...Keep Reading
What does it mean to steward something? What exactly is a steward? The verb means simply: “to manage or look after another person’s property.” The noun describes a person who does that ...Keep Reading
We are looking for A/V volunteers. We need a few willing souls who are looking for a unique way to serve the church. Have you ever been interested in learning about sound and lighting equipment? We will train for each. Or are you already experienced and knowledgeable? The time commitment is Wednesday nights 7-8:30, Sunday mornings 7:30-9 and then the service. You will be r...Keep Reading
Greed and materialism are part of the air we breathe in our culture and we need to talk about it. In our sermon series on The Seven Deadly Sins, this week is about greed. If talking about selfishness or money makes you nervous, you are in good company....Keep Reading
A neighbor on our street radically pruned their oak tree, and its bare, cut-back state was a shock to my eyes, even as its vigor and size were undeniable. While my neighbor’s tree just looks different, it’s still the same essential tree ...Keep Reading
In 2007, our first daughter church struck up a partnership with a missionary couple in Nicaragua, Robbie & Murray Lathrop. What started as a short mission trip has turned into a wonderful friendship, and a growing shared sense of mission. Our daughter church, Christ Community, started this, but quickly we and other churches in our network started taking their own trips....Keep Reading
