Sunday was joy-filled as we gave thanks for the gifts of music and pastoral ministry. The Sunday Forum was led by Pastor Emeritus Elton Richards who reflected on his 54 years of ordained ministry. In worship we celebrated Music Ministry Sunday, recognizing not only the offerings of the choir and musicians who recorded throughout the pandemic, but also three ladies who retired from the choir: Bernadette Ilgen, Nancy Souders-Negri, and Darlyn Unger. How fitting that the day's guest pastor, Kristian Kohler, shared gifts of both ministries with us as he led our worship service. ... See MoreSee Less

Easter initiates a new day. It anticipates a new heaven and a new earth. The risen Christ is making all things new. In the mystery of holy baptism God has made new people of us. Today Jesus invites us to see everyone in a new light—through the lens of love.

In May, 1968, 54 years ago Elton Richards was called as Senior Pastor of Trinity. Join him for a trip down memory lane – the coming and the leaving, the good times and the bad times, the successes and the failures. Even as the congregation focuses on what lies ahead, it is good to recall where we have been. ... See MoreSee Less

Sound is great.
The gift of new life, of eternal life, is the gift of the risen Christ. It is the promise of Jesus. It was true for Dorcas in Joppa. It was true for those “who have come out of the great ordeal” in the Revelation vision. It is true for us and for all the baptized: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever

The disciples make a big splash and eat breakfast with the risen Jesus. Wading in the water (remembering baptism) and eating with Jesus (celebrating holy communion) is our weekly encounter with the risen Christ. Jesus asks us again and again: Do you love me? And Jesus invites us, again and again, to follow him, bringing the Easter life to others.

I like this Paster; can we call him?
In spite of all we have heard and all we have seen, it is often hard to believe. Because it is hard to believe, we will invest ourselves in the Easter mystery for fifty days (a week of weeks). Because it is hard to believe, John the evangelist will provide sign after sign celebrating Jesus’ victory over death. Because it is hard to believe, the risen Jesus will return to us again and again in the mystery of holy communion, inviting us to touch and taste his presence, and offering us

“The last enemy to be destroyed is death,” Paul writes. Today Christ is risen,
and we gather together with astonishment and joy. Christ is risen, and we have been set free from the bonds of death. Christ is risen, and we are forgiven. Christ is risen, and with Mary Magdalene, we are amazed. Let us rejoice: Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!
