We remember and/or celebrate key times in people's lives as a congregational family. The occasion is marked both in household relationships as well as when the Trinity family gathers together. Below are some current examples of what we celebrate together:
- Holy Baptism - A child or adult is welcomed and celebrated as a child of God as we celebrate God's promise and they receive God's gift of grace.
- Bible Arrival (4-5 yrs) - Young children are part of special "Bible Parade" and receive a read-to-me Bible from their parents.
- Bible Arrival (2nd grade) - Children receive a full Bible that their parents have "customized" with highlighted verses, notes, and special blessing.
- Mom & Me Tea - Preschool and elementary aged girls get to dress pretty and bring a favorite grown-up girls (mom, aunts, grandmas...or all of the above!) to an event celebrating how special they all are to God.
- Father-Son Adventure - Preschool and elementary boys get to roll up their sleeves with a favorite big guy (dad, uncles, grandpas, or others) and have an adventure together as they look together to the guidance of God's Word.
- Confirmation - In a special Banquet, young teens speak their faith and parents share their personal blessing and encouragment in faith.
- Graduation - As students graduate from high school, parents publicly re-affirm their love for their child, identify God's special gifts in their child, and share their blessing for a new chapter in their lives.
- Anniversary Celebrations - In February, married couples celebrating first anniversaries and anniversaries of every five years (5, 10, 15, ...45, 50, etc) are part of a special worship element that includes prayer, slide-show, and blessing.
- Commemoration of the Departed - On the first Sunday in November, we remember and thank God for all our loved ones who have died - specifically naming those who have died in the previous 12 months.
