Many of Trinity’s members and regular attenders come from backgrounds other than Presbyterianism. Questions often come up about why we do what we do. One of the most common is related to church officers. Why do we have officers? How are they chosen? What do they do? Here’s a few thoughts on the ordination and installation of officers....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?...
An ever-present experience in summer is the parent in the pool coaxing their child to jump to them… I love the water, and I cannot count how many hours I spent in the pool urging one of my kids to jump to me. First, they would jump straight into my arms. Then they would jump to a landing that was half me, half water. Then they would jump into the water just shy of whe...Keep Reading
I was privileged to take a trip to the Grand Canyon last week. I drove out and back with my two youngest children, Abby and Campbell. It really was the trip of a lifetime, and what we saw was hard to express precisely because it was SO amazing. Many times we were simply dumbstruck ...Keep Reading
Dear Members & Attenders, I want to ask you to please pray for us as our leaders assess a significant decision! I have asked our officers to assess if we are ready to partner with a campus ministry started within our denomination called Campus Outreach (C.O.). Specifically, a seminary-trained ministry leader – David Springer – would consi...Keep Reading
The weather has cooperated and our roof replacement began this morning, Thursday, June 22. The interior use of our building should continue uninterrupted. However, please use caution when parking in our lot by parking away from the building and closer to Tennessee Avenue....Keep Reading
Dear Trinity Members and Regular Attenders, I am excited to announce that we will begin a Kids' Worship program (or “Children’s Church”) for first through fifth graders this fall. Over the past several months, I have been working to develop this plan through feedback from the parents at Trinity and by researching and visiting similar churches in o...Keep Reading
When was the last time someone criticized your work? And what is that like? Surely we learn from feedback; it helps to know how we can improve, even as it can sting. To learn how to work better is a good thing. So why can criticism be so hard?...Keep Reading
This past Sunday I mentioned Stan McMahan's transistion and wanted to give you a few more details. Stan is a product of our ministry where, after graduating college, he started attending. Then as he grew in his involvement, he grew from being a member to training for pastoral ministry to being a staff intern to Associate Pastor to leading a church plant. And time flies w...Keep Reading
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
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
