Happy Sunday, friends!

          Thanks to those of you who tuned in to worship this morning! If you missed it, you can find those videos on the main page of our church website: (www.mytrinity.org). I’m grateful for your continued faithfulness in giving! As a reminder, you can give by dropping your check in the mail slot in the exterior door at the Office entrance on Cedar St, mailing it to the office, or giving online. We even have a new text to give option available! You can find all of that information at the end of this email.

          I mentioned in the video today that we are collecting short video Easter greetings from as many members and friends from Trinity as we can. These will be compiled into a continuous video that we will share Easter Sunday morning! Please read the instruction from Richard, which are located at the end of this email. If you are more technologically savvy, please reach out to our more mature members and make an appropriately social distant visit to record their greetings to be included!

          Our youth gather tonight via Zoom at 7pm. If you need the link, reach out to Jeff Orrock.

          Hope you can get out and enjoy this beautiful day!

Seeking the Kingdom with you!

Pastor Dan
