Though we remain separated physically from one another, we are one body in Christ, and the work of the church continues. Scroll for Sunday's worship details and other upcoming opportunities.

First, however, a note from President Sue Carlson:
Please mark your calendars for our semi-annual Congregational Meeting to be held following the 10 AM worship service on Pentecost Sunday, May 31, 2020. The meeting will be conducted via Zoom, and the agenda will include election of officers, Bylaw ratification, and election of a Call Committee for a second pastor. Details will be coming soon as well as a mail-in/drop-off ballot and instructions.
- Sue Carlson, Council President
Ministry groups should submit Annual Reports to by Tuesday, May 5. 
With great sadness, the Trinity community mourns the death of Norma Aamodt-Nelson at home on Wednesday afternoon. Read Pastor Hector's note, emailed earlier today, and ongoing updates on Norma's CaringBridge site
Finally, at this time Trinity plans to continue 'as-is' through at least the end of May: the building will remain closed to public gatherings (except the CDC), worship and meetings will continue online, and staff are working remotely. This has been a trying time for all as we each seek to discover the 'new normal.' If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the Trinity staff or council. 
Blessings and Peace,
Josh Judd-Herzfeldt
Trinity Communication Coordinator

fourth sunday of easter

May 3, 2020 + 10 AM - [live stream | bulletin]
This Sunday is sometimes called “Good Shepherd Sunday.” Jesus is called the “gate” of the sheep in the day's gospel. The risen Christ opens the way to abundant life. He anoints our heads with oil and guides us beside the still waters of our baptism. Each Sunday he spreads a feast before us amid the world’s violence and war. We go forth to be signs of the resurrection and extend God’s tender care to all creation.

weekly prayer time hiatus

The Thursday prayer time that we adopted once quarantine began will take a pause in May as Pastors and staff evaluate the impact and reach of the endeavor.

Prayer continues to happen in other ways at Trinity (the prayer list is kept up to date each week), and if you have any feedback or comments about the weekly prayer time or other ways in which the Trinity community can pray together, contact Pastor Hector or Pastor Jade (;
