LIVE OUTDOOR SERVICES
The Trinity Church courtyard has been transformed into a worship center, and outdoor services have begun along with our regular online service. There are three options to choose from:
Saturday 6:30 pm - Trinity Church Courtyard
Sunday 10:00 am - Trinity Church Courtyard & Kid Spaces
Sunday 10:00 am - Online
Seating in the courtyard will be limited, so reservations for each member of your family attending is REQUIRED each week.
Sunday Kids Ministry
First - Fifth Grade - Elementary kids will check in and sit with their parents for the first part of the Sunday service. After the music and the kids talk they will go to their meeting area OUTSIDE.
Nursery through kindergarten - Meets Sunday during the 10:00 am service. Please use the separate link below to sign them up.
Feeling sick? Please Stay home (Required)
If you, or anyone in your family, are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have experienced symptoms of sickness in the 72 hours prior to church please stay home and watch online. We appreciate you thinking of others and serving the church body by being extra cautious.
Reserve Your Seat (Required)
Seating is limited for each service, and we need an accurate contact list of all who attend a service, so a reservation is needed for yourself as well as each member of your family who will be attending. Each Sunday afternoon the link to sign up for the following weekend's services is posted on the community page. You will need to sign up each week.
Wear a Mask (Required) -
According to state and county regulations and for everyone's safety, we ask that you wear a face mask from the time you leave your car until the time you return to your vehicle. Everyone will wear a face mask for the entirety of the service except for those on stage who are appropriately distanced from everyone else.
Social Distancing (Required)
According to state and county regulations and for everyone's safety, we ask that you maintain at least six feet from everyone who is not currently living in your household. All seating will also be arranged by household with at least six feet between those on either side of you as well as in front and behind you.
Use Hand Sanitizer (Recommended)
According to state and county guidelines, one of the best ways to protect yourself is to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer. There will be an automatic hand sanitizing station when you enter and exit the courtyard. For your safety it is recommend that you use it both upon entering as well as exiting.
Use the Restroom at Home (Recommended)
The indoor restrooms inside the church lobby will be available. However, restrooms are a high contact area and it is recommended that you use the restroom at home if possible. We are keeping our services to an hour to make this more doable.
Check the website Friday Night (Recommended)
As you know, regulations are very fluid and can change very quickly. If either the state or county changes the regulations where we can't meet, we will post it to the website by Friday evening. If this happens we will just have our regular service online at 10:00 am on Sunday.

LETS TALK: ELECTION 2020
September 24, Thursday
Politics and religion are two things you aren't supposed to talk about, but that is exactly what we are going to do. First, we will look at each issue from a Biblical perspective highlighting what God’s Word is clear on and what are the overall guiding principles to consider. Then we will hear from one another on the issues: what can we all agree on, what are the predominant positions, and what are the unanswered questions we might have.
This week we will discuss "Government Help & Individual Determination". First, we will learn what the Bible has to say about about corporate compassion and individual responsibility. Then we will discuss the balance between what a government should do in aiding its citizens, and the citizen’s responsibility to help themselves.
For more information and to sign up go to our "Classes and Groups" page.
September 26, Saturday
We are still running our pantry twice a month, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. City Team delivers the food and we will help put the groceries in people’s car. We could use some extra hands starting at 9:15 am. If you are in good health, and are looking to help others in need, please join us for this vital ministry. If you are interested in helping, contact Jan at email@example.com.
JESUS & YOM KIPPUR
September 27, Sunday
Yom Kippur is the most solemn day on the Jewish calendar. On this day, Israel’s high priest would enter the Holy of Holies to atone for Israel’s sin by sprinkling the blood of an innocent goat onto the Ark of the Covenant. Then he would release a live goat (scapegoat) into the wilderness, carrying the sins of the people (Leviticus 16).
As believers in Yeshua, this day is important for us to confess our sins, take a “spiritual audit” of the year, remember Yeshua’s atonement for our sin, and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We hope you will join us this year!
JESUS & SUKKOT
October 2, Friday
Sukkot is called “the time of our rejoicing.” We rejoice in the redemptive work that took place during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and we celebrate that God is now in our midst, dwelling with us. It is customary to build a sukkah (booth) and decorate it with foliage and fruit; its roof must leave room to look at the stars, to remember how finite our lives are and that God is the king over the entire universe, the heavens and the earth.
Sukkot is the only fall feast that mentions other nations, as it has a future, Messianic application. When Jesus returns to rule and reign from Jerusalem, all nations will bring offerings to Jerusalem and bow before Him. Sukkot is a wonderful time to rejoice in our future hope and our inheritance in Messiah.
DAY OF PRAYER
October 14, Wednesday
A little over four months ago a simple idea of gathering the Church in the Bay Area to pray and fast birthed a significant movement of different churches uniting together in prayer called If My People, rooted in 2 Chronicles 7:14.
And so, we will have a monthly multi-church prayer gathering on the Transforming The Bay Cities Facebook Page from 12:00 to 12:30 pm. Please join us in fasting that morning and afternoon. Then at noon on Facebook we will have different pastors and worship leaders from across the Bay Area lead us in prayer and worship.
Monday - Friday
At Trinity Church we want to see every person in a healthy Small Group. We are passionate about each person getting connected to others in an encouraging environment where you can get your personal questions answered. For more information go to our Classes and Small Groups page.
LEGACY YOUTH GROUP
Sundays & Wednesdays
The Trinity Church youth group, 6th through 12th grade, meet online using Zoom on Sundays at 11:30 am and they meet at the Trinity Church Courtyard live on Wednesdays evening
at 7:00 pm. For more information contact Tony at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can make a difference and be a blessing in the life of a child here at Trinity Church! The Early Ed ministry has a significant need for more volunteers to help in the Nursery (babies & toddlers) and the Sonbeams Class (3 yrs - Kindergarten). Please consider standing in the gap for someone who can't volunteer right now by volunteering once or twice a month in this rewarding ministry. Contact Stephanie Ramirez at email@example.com.
