WELCOME TO GUESTS! - We are so glad to have you with us! If you have needs or questions, reach out to an usher or Pastor, or use the contact info on the back of the bulletin. We’d love to hear from you! Turn in your guest card to an usher to receive a little token of our friendship. 


SPECIAL WELCOME TO FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN - We have kids’ bulletins and activity bags— just ask an usher! If you need to leave your seat for a moment, we have a nursery with livestream down the hall; so you can still be involved with the service. Changing tables are in the women’s restroom.

In addition to the extra tasks Chelsea will undoubtedly cover, Eilene Kane has volunteered to format and print bulletins.

From Dave and Judy Olen:

Dear Fellow Members of Trinity,

Olen’s Talk of the Town Painting wishes to thank the staff and members of Trinity’s congregation for putting up with the disorder of the church and fellowship hall during this restoration project. The plaster and drywall dust, the never-ending trails of drop cloths, the forbidden curtain are all behind us as we have restored over 2,100 lineal feet of cracks in the walls and ceilings. This has been a labor of love for us, and for our crew, as we turned the sanctuary into a place that even more fully glorifies God and shows respect to the era of our church— through the paint colors and the custom-made stencils, this work was done to preserve our church and honor God for generations to come.


Thank you,

David & July Olen

Soli Deo Gloria!
