Rummage Sale:

We will be holding a spring rummage sale in late April.  We are currently accepting donations of household goods for the sale.  Items can be left downstairs on the stage during office hours or on Sunday mornings.

Bible Study:

Our adult bible study meets on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 PM.

Giving Statements:

Individual financial statements for tax purposes are available upon request.  If you would like a statement for giving from 2017 please contact the church office or talk to our Financial Secretary, Linda Musseman.


With winter weather upon us, sometimes we need to cancel church events or meetings.  The best way to keep up to date on what is going on is to follow us on Facebook or check here on the website.

Food Pantry:

Every month we collect canned good for the food Bank at Trinity UCC.  The item of the month for February is Peanut Butter and Jelly. Monetary donations are always welcome, as well.

Food donations can be placed in the box located on the Pine St. entrance by the educational building or money can be placed in the offering plate using a plain brown envelope marked Food Bank.


The 2018 Sponsorship charts are posted on the Pine St. entrance of the church.  You can honor or memorialize a loved on by choosing to sponsor bulletins, flowers, fellowship, radio broadcast or communion.  Prices are listed on each chart.  There are still spots available so please consider signing up to sponsor a Sunday.

Prayer Requests:

If you have someone who needs to be on our prayer list, forms are available at either entrance to the church and in the church pews.  Just drop the request in the offering plate on Sunday morning.  We will keep the name of that person on the prayer list for 4 weeks unless we are intructed otherwise.  You can also call the church office to add someone to the prayer list.
