We had the honor and opportunity of installing a new pastor at Trinity this past weekend – Pastor Chris Valeri, who will be overseeing Trinity Kids and the junior internship. Pastor Chris’ wife Brittany currently serves as the Trinity Kids Director, so they are very excited to do ministry together as a couple and as a family. In case you missed this past weekend, click here to see the video of his installation as the newest pastor at Trinity Church.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for being a generous church family! As Pastor Mark updated from the stage last week, here are the updates on the Rebuilding Home capital campaign (to see the video updates, visit the campaign website).
- Phase 1 – Building the park/Gifts to other churches and ministry partners (Fully funded in gifts/pledges)
- Phase 2 – Next generation (Backyard upgrade and expanded internship program) (Partially funded in gifts/pledges)
- Phase 3 – Broadcast/Power (Planning in process)
- Phase 4 – Paying off the remainder of our mortgage (Ongoing pay down in gifts/pledges)
The average church gets 25-30% of pledges from Commitment Weekend and we had almost 50% of the campaign pledged during Commitment Weekend! Thank you, Trinity Church family for your generosity during our Rebuilding Home Commitment Weekend!
We’ll be updating you on the progress of the campaign in the days, weeks, and months to come but it’s not too late to get involved! We’re incredibly encouraged by the generosity of our church family but we still need your help! This will be a two-year campaign and we believe God has so many incredible things for our church family throughout the course of this campaign and beyond.
During the entire month of November, you’re invited to join us as we partner with Harvest Compassion Center for our annual Christmas toy drive! Harvest provides food and clothing to those in need around the Phoenix Valley and, at Christmas, they give toys to kids as well.
Last year, we had the opportunity to partner with Harvest for our annual toy drive because we love being able to bless families and help put smiles on kids’ faces, especially at Christmas. Real Men also collected money to buy Bibles and we were able to give them Bibles in nine different languages so refugees from all over the world could come and find a Bible in their language!
To participate, bring your new, unwrapped toy anytime in the month of November and drop it in the boxes in the lobby. Thank you for being a generous church family!
You’re invited to help get our church home ready for an epic month of Christmas! Join us Wednesday, Nov. 30 anytime from 2-7 PM for a Christmas work party! Come anytime for any length of time during that time and feel free to bring your kiddos with you as well to help out! If you’re new and would like to learn more about the church or get plugged in, you’re also invited to enjoy dinner with us at 5:30 PM and join us for a Join the Team event.
Our First Saturday events have become the best way to kick off each month and, in December, we’re excited to welcome Grammy Award-winning artist, BJ Putnam, on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 4 PM! That day will also kick off our month-long celebration of Christmas, so we’ll have fire pits and s’mores, fun for the kids, and so much more, so you won’t want to miss it! Every month, on the first Saturday of the month, we welcome a special guest band, group, or artist for extended worship (and a message from Pastor Mark!). RSVP or invite your friends on Facebook by clicking here.
Christmas at Trinity is the “most wonderful time of the year” and we’re excited to, once again, throw a month-long party in December! Every weekend, there will be snow off the building, fire pits and s’mores, and more! This all leads up to the Week of Christmas (Dec. 17-18) and Christmas Eve (Dec. 23-24, 3&5 PM) when we bring in 100,000 pounds of snow for sledding, sock skating, and throw the biggest party of the Winter! Visit Trinitychurch.com/Christmas for all the details!
Trinity Students are heading to Winter Camp in Prescott this December! If your kid is in 6th-12th grade, they’re invited! Registrations close Friday, Nov. 25. Click here for more info and to register. OR if you’d like to sponsor a kid going to camp, you can do that as well!
The 5th annual Real Women Christmas Dinner at Trinity Church is coming up Dec. 6-7 and spots are filling up quickly! The theme this year will be “My Prince of Peace” and the event will feature an elegant evening of lights and crowns, worship, catered dinner and dessert served by Trinity Real Men, a Christmas message, our famous shoe competition, photo ops, party gifts for everyone, and fellowship with amazing women! This event sells out every year so don’t delay on registering! To learn more or register, click here.
To celebrate the end of an incredible year at Trinity Church, we’re excited to do baptisms one last time for 2022! If you’d like to publicly declare what God has done in your life, we invite you to join us for baptisms at all three services December 10-11. Click here to sign up.
We’re bringing back the Trinity Market and you’re invited! Before or after services, stop by the Trinity Market with local, handmade goods and Christmas gifts made by Trinity craftsmen and craftswomen on Dec. 10 from 3-7 PM and Dec. 11 from 8 AM – 2 PM.
On Dec. 17-18, we’ll be doing Baby Dedications! If you have a baby or little one who has not been dedicated and you’d like to dedicate them to the Lord in front of the church family, you’re invited! We follow in the example of Jesus’ parents who brought Him to the Temple as we invite you on stage to introduce your family, read a verse for your child, and join us in praying over all the children being dedicated.
