Trinity is a strong, vibrant, energetic congregation of God's people. We give God thanks for all of the blessings God has bestowed on our congregation and we ask for God's guidance as we work to strengthen our discipleship.

At Trinity we celebrate God’s children in all of our beautiful forms. We open our hearts and church to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, immigration status, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, social status, political views, abilities, who we are or who we love. Together we strive to grow in love and joyfully serve God, our community and the whole of God’s creation. We make this journey together.
Wednesday evenings December 7, December 14 at 7:00 PM - Zoom Link will be in Wednesdays’ newsletters!
The Advent series is built around three steps to help us prepare for God’s holy disruption: breathing, releasing, and receiving. Each week’s liturgy will focus on one step and there will be time for us to connect with each other through conversation in the midst of our gathering.
We anticipate each service to last no more than 45 minutes. Pastors from Ayer, Chelmsford (Pastor Erica and Intern Gail), Andover and Lawrence are all taking part.
Musicians from Chelmsford (René Minalga-Rheault) and Lawrence (Steve Kennedy) will provide music.
The 10:00am indoor/livestream service continues as usual into the summer months.
**Reminder: We celebrate Holy Communion by Extending the Lord’s Table during the 10:00am service on the 1st Sunday of the month and festival Sundays.**
We continue to meet regularly and monitor conditions from several government and medical sources, particularly: https://covidactnow.org/us/massachusetts-ma/county/middlesex_county/?s=35532340
We believe that the high vaccination rate of our members and community and use of the following precautions minimize the risk of viral spread sufficiently. Each individual and family will need to decide if they are ready to worship in person.
Because the risk level in the Merrimack Valley is now at a LOW level, we modified our mask policy in response to this designation. Because we have little to no ventilation and we like to sing - masks are strongly recommended at Trinity. To promote an environment that accommodates varying comfort levels, we continue to designate the front left pews for those who prefer to remain physically distanced and in this section of the sanctuary, masks will remain required.
Here’s what we’re doing to keep one another safe:
As conditions change, our precautions may change accordingly. At Trinity, we care about each other - so you are always welcome to wear a mask to protect others and yourself.

Go out into the world in peace;
hold on to what is good;
return no one evil for evil;
strengthen the fainthearted;
support the weak, and help the suffering;
honor all people;
love and serve the Lord,
rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Beloved in the Lord,
God has shown you what is good.
What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.*
