This past Sunday I mentioned Stan McMahan's transistion and wanted to give you a few more details. Stan is a product of our ministry where, after graduating college, he started attending. Then as he grew in his involvement, he grew from being a member to training for pastoral ministry to being a staff intern to Associate Pastor to leading a church plant. And time flies w...Keep Reading

I was asked recently, “Trinity is obviously growing, so what is your strategy for outreach?” And I believe the answer is three basic aspects of our culture. We want to know the Gospel. We believe we need the Gospel. And we seek to be related to people in our city who do not yet know Jesus....
School resumes soon! For some of you, it’s next week, and for those with the longest wait, it’s still only about 10 days. While our culture has set the expectation that school is this “place” where learning happens, I’d like to offer that school is only one of the places where we can learn....
For many at Trinity, you may have little idea that just over a year ago we hired a consulting firm. Our leaders wanted help assessing whether or not we were ready to undertake a fund-raising effort to fund comprehensive renovations for our facility....Keep Reading
Buildings are tools. And thankfully our church building is a valuable tool to help us to get done the work we believe God has called us to do. We don’t merely host worship services. Our physical home is a base for ministries to Trinity’s children, students, women, men and beyond. We’ve hosted a myriad of other ministries (like Parker St. Ministries, counselors, SeeJe...Keep Reading
I heard a woman say with some excitement, “We’re getting a new home!” When talking of home improvements, common terms get used but what is meant can vary significantly. “We’re getting a new home” can mean 1) we’re building a new house; or 2) we’re buying an existing house that’s new to us; or 3) we’re fixing up our existing home so considerably that it ...Keep Reading
Because of my involvement with the Navy SEAL Foundation, I recently got to be with some of these very special warriors. They’re more trained in weaponry than probably anyone else on our planet. And yet they do not wall themselves in with their skills. They go out beyond the safety of fortresses to engage dangerous enemies. They risk their lives to protect people like you...Keep Reading
What does it mean to steward something? What exactly is a steward? The verb means simply: “to manage or look after another person’s property.” The noun describes a person who does that ...Keep Reading
We are looking for A/V volunteers. We need a few willing souls who are looking for a unique way to serve the church. Have you ever been interested in learning about sound and lighting equipment? We will train for each. Or are you already experienced and knowledgeable? The time commitment is Wednesday nights 7-8:30, Sunday mornings 7:30-9 and then the service. You will be r...Keep Reading
Greed and materialism are part of the air we breathe in our culture and we need to talk about it. In our sermon series on The Seven Deadly Sins, this week is about greed. If talking about selfishness or money makes you nervous, you are in good company....Keep Reading
A neighbor on our street radically pruned their oak tree, and its bare, cut-back state was a shock to my eyes, even as its vigor and size were undeniable. While my neighbor’s tree just looks different, it’s still the same essential tree ...Keep Reading
In 2007, our first daughter church struck up a partnership with a missionary couple in Nicaragua, Robbie & Murray Lathrop. What started as a short mission trip has turned into a wonderful friendship, and a growing shared sense of mission. Our daughter church, Christ Community, started this, but quickly we and other churches in our network started taking their own trips....Keep Reading
