Trinity announces plans for Easter observances.
Easter is coming and, in the spirit of this season, Trinity is
preparing a series of worship services and events that will make your
observances especially memorable. We want to call your attention to the
highlights of this schedule.
Trinity now accepting Vacation Bible School
Plans are now in place for Trinity's "Soaring For Our
Savior" Vacation Bible School starting June 23-27 from 9 AM until 12 Noon.
Registrations are now being accepted. We encourage you to
submit your Registration Form today.
Of course, VBS is open to everyone and we encourage Trinity families to
invite others to join us. A suggested donation of $20 per child (up to a
maximum of $50 per family) covers the costs of the T-shirt, CDs, crafts,
snacks, etc. So, sign up today!
Palm Sunday is April 13. On Palm Sunday, we
commemorate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem the week
before his death and resurrection. Trinity will begin our worship services
with a 9:45 AM observance of the Liturgy of the Palms held in the church
courtyard. The worship will continue at 10:00 AM with the Palm Sunday
Liturgy in the main church.
Four days later, Trinity will observe Maundy Thursday. Maundy
Thursday marks the date of the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover
meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. In contrast
to joyful Easter services celebrating our resurrected Savior, Maundy
Thursday services are more solemn. The Maundy Thursday Liturgy will be
offered in the Church at 6:00 PM with a special observance of the Midnight
Altar of Repose in the Chapel at 7:30 PM.
Good Friday occurs on April 18 and Trinity will hold the Good
Friday Liturgy at 12:00 noon. On this day, we recall the
passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Our Good Friday services will take place in the church.
On Saturday, April 19, we'll hold a special 5:00 p.m. Easter Vigil
Service in the Chapel.
Finally, on Sunday, April 20, our Easter Sunday Service will begin
at 10:00 AM. This festive worship service, observing Jesus' resurrection,
is among the highlights of Trinity's church year. Thanks to the generous
support of several members, our worship experience will benefit from an
array of musical instruments, primarily brass and timpani, performing with
our choir. The Church will be adorned with traditional lilies — an
incredible transformation of our worship space. We remind you to arrive
Immediately after the Easter service, Trinity will offer a traditional
Easter Egg Hunt in the church's playground area. Invite your children and
grandchildren to join the fun. Of course, your family members and any
guests are cordially invited to participate in this (and all) Easter
activities at Trinity.
