We are delighted to welcome back critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Craig Bickhardt, as he leads the 10:00 PM service with members of the Trinity Praise Band.

We’ll share the Christmas story, sing and listen to beautiful music, share communion and end with candlelight as we sing "Silent Night."  This service is intended to be low-key and intimate: late in the evening on Christmas Eve, sit back and take in the wonder of the baby in the manger.

During the past 14 months your Pastor Nominating Committee has prayerfully reviewed the information provided by 130 applicants for the Trinity pastorate.  We listened to recorded sermons of many candidates and we interviewed 9 of the applicants.
We are delighted that we have unanimously agreed to nominate the Rev. Elisabeth Shelton Hartwell for election as our next called pastor by the Trinity congregation.  We agree that Rev. Hartwell has a genuine and infectious passion for preaching, teaching, pastoral care, strategic planning, and for discerning a vision for our future as a community of faith and fellowship.

Here is a video of the Candidacy Sermon given by Rev. Elisabeth Hartwell on Oct 6, 2013.
