Carrying the message of the gospel through the streets of Crookston
can feel intimidating but through Trinity’s Radio and TV Ministry,
we are reaching out to those who may not step into our church building
to hear the message. 
This vital outreach touches lives well beyond Crookston’s city limits. 

 
Gifts to the Radio Fund can be given to honor or remember a loved one. 
Recognition of the weekly radio broadcast sponsorship can be scheduled
to coincide with a memorable date. 
The cost of each weekly broadcast is $126.00
If you would like to sponsor a broadcast,
contact the church office at 281-4276 to schedule a date.

Are you interested in seeing a
New Photo Directory for Trinity?

 
We are looking for one or two people willing to serve as coordinators,
so we could publish a simple, updated photo directory for our Trinity.

 
Lifetouch offers a simplified approach to church photo directories;
it does not involve a lot of telephone calling or time-consuming layouts.
Congregation members can make their own appointments on-line and appointment
times can be taken after worship services and simply entered into Lifetouch’s system.

 
If you are willing to be a coordinator, please call the church office
at 281-4276 for more information or to volunteer!

 Join us for Book Study
Thursdays: 12:00 PM @
First Presbyterian Church
 
If speed kills, is it possible that slowness saves? Christopher Smith and John Pattison contend that it does in this moving new book.  On the level of atoms, motion is relative, but in our rushed and hectic lives, fast has become code for “controlling, aggressive, hurried, and stressed,” While slow signifies the opposite: “calm, careful, reflective, and still.” Fast is good in emergencies, but don’t we all want to slow down, especially on the weekends? Smith & Pattison think the church should help up do exactly that. The study is led by Rev. Elise Pokel.
