Message, News and Events

UPDATED ANNOUNCEMENT: 6/28/2021

Dear Friends in Christ,

As you may be aware, on June 28, 2021, the PA Department of Health lifted the "Universal Masking Order."

In light of this action, I have received a unanimous vote in favor of the following from the Executive Board of Church Council at Trinity for the following:

1) As of June 28, 2021, masks will no longer be required for those fully vaccinated and past the 10-day waiting period when at worship or in the building. Furthermore, if you are not comfortable being in the building or at worship without your mask on, then please feel free to wear one.

2) If you are not fully vaccinated, for your own protection, please continue to wear a mask. We certainly don't want any of our members to become sick or worse!

May God continue to heal us and bless us as we continue to do God's work in our communities and the world.

Sincerely in Christ,
Reverend Nancy L. Moore, Pastor
Linda Williams, Council President
Shawn Keiser, Council Vice-President
Lee Becker, Council Secretary
Kay Becker, Congregation Treasurer


The Food Pantry will continue to operate under a drive-thru system, and any students needing volunteer hours for school or college related organizations may contact Mrs. Carolyn Long via the church office at 610-377-4303.
Sunday Bulletin for September 19: The Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost -- Worship With Holy Communion

A recording of the worship service, led by Pastor Nancy Moore, and the hymns by Susan Lovejoy, our Minister of Music, will be posted on the church's Facebook page at the conclusion of the worship service. The bulletin for Sunday, September 19, can be downloaded here. Also, a children's Celebrate bulletin is available here.


Feeling Discouraged?

We all feel discouraged sometimes. It manifests itself in different ways, but always leaves you disillusioned, wondering whether all your efforts were worth the trouble. Only those who strive for a goal can be discouraged.
