Easter Sunday at Trinity

Trinity enjoyed a grand Easter Celebration as is our tradition. Through music, dance, and words, we celebrated the risen Christ and God's promise of hope for all people. Below you'll find descriptions of the various ways we came together in worship and fellowship. Please enjoy and be inspired by the videos and pictures. 

The day began with a delicious Easter breakfast courtesy of Kris Goold and her wonderful kitchen crew.

The altar and chancel were decorated with memorial spring and Easter plants and Nicole Baker’s spring seasons of the year decoration was hanging over the chancel steps.

The service began with “Season of Light: A Time to Dance Joy” by the Dance Movement Choir.  This piece was inspired by Jane Schneeloch’s poem, “Schneeglöckchen” (German for snowdrop).

All of the choirs participated in the service including the Jubilee Singers, Choisters, Chamberettes, Chancel Choir, and the Handbell Choir.  A brass quartet and percussion enriched the beautiful music of the day.

Rob’s Children’s Message was the culmination of their Lenten Journey for Treasures of the Heart and everyone was mesmerized by the flower petals dropping over the chancel steps as he assured the kids that peace, love, kindness, and other treasures of the heart live because Jesus lived.

Rev. Dr. Calhoun brought the Easter message, “A Day of New Beginnings”.

The service concluded with the congregation joining the choir in singing the “Hallelujah Chorus”.

Trinity is fortunate to have so many dedicated staff and volunteers who made Easter Sunday special and who work throughout the year to bring us meaningful worship services and who participate in mission activities to take the Word into the community.
