Children & Youth Education Survey

As an academic year begins and new routines are created, we want to hear how Trinity’s children and youth education can fit into your family’s life. We understand the circumstances and future are unknown, but Trinity is here to support you and your family however you choose to be involved.  Based on your answers, we will decide how the fall will look this fall, and plan to begin our programs after Labor Day in September!

Watch this site and our Facebook page for updates about virtual worship and activities that are now suspended due to our current COVID-19 health crisis. We are aware that this virus has a long incubation period, and each of us could have it without even being aware and inadvertently share illness with a brother or sister in Christ. Therefore we are not willing that any person be placed in that position through our community of faith. 
            Pastor Bobbie and Vicar Jeanette remain available for phone calls, prayers and visits.  You can reach Pastor Bobbie at 941-243-9473 and Vicar Jeanette at 941-301-0691.
            Join with us in praying for all who are fearful and stressed in this time of health crisis, that the One who rose again on Easter will sustain and accompany each of us in this unprecedented journey.
