New Door Locks at Trinity

As part of our new security system installation, the church building has now been rekeyed.  If you need access to the building, you will need to stop by the church office (during regular office hours) to get a key fob and receive instructions on how to use the new system. 



Since there will be no pig roast this year to help raise funds for Trinity Point, we have decided to sell T-shirts and sweatshirts.
Trinity Point was established in 1959 and we are so honored to be a part of this awesome experience and would like all of you to experience it with us by having your own shirts. 32 crosses represent our 32 permanent camp sites that we currently have.
The T-shirts and sweatshirts will be a Charcoal Grey in color with the flag in white. The wording will be in black on the white stripes.
The cost is $20 for a T-shirt and $55 for a sweatshirt.
The contact info is simple:

Volunteer Opportunities


Trinity Volunteer Opportunities
With the approval of the 2016 budget came some changes to our staffing.  We are moving to a shared associate pastor with First Presbyterian Church in Crookston.  We are also eliminating the paid Receptionist and Financial Secretary positions.  This opens up some opportunities for people to volunteer as we transition into a new staffing configuration which calls on more volunteers to assist in the total ministry of Trinity Church.  Listed below are some volunteer openings we are hoping to fill as we live into a new reality that has us working together as staff and volunteers. 
Tuesday morning receptionist:                   
answer phones, greet people, take messages, other work as available
Wednesday morning receptionist:             
answer phones, greet people, take messages, other work as available
Thursday morning receptionist:                 
answer phones, greet people, take messages, other work as available
        On-Call receptionist:                                         
for anticipated and emergency absences

Web page and Facebook:                            
weekly maintenance for internet information
  Sound Board Technician:                             
shared with a team to provide audio services for worship
and other events
​                      Multi-Media Technician:               
shared with a team to provide broadcast and projection services for worship and other events
This new staffing structure may result, on occasion, with there being only one staff person or volunteer in the church building.  For security purposes the east parking lot doors may be locked but a portable door bell will be available to ring into the office to let someone in. If you have a need to stop in the office, please call ahead to ensure someone is there. Phone calls will be answered as staff are available.  Phone messages will be retrieved and returned at earliest possible time.  Pastoral emergencies can call the emergency phone number (218.280.3588)
or follow the voice prompts on the office phone. 
We appreciate your patience as we work through this time
of transition at Trinity Church.  

 Please consider helping with our 
Sunday morning worship serv

We need a steady flow of volunteers to help usher, serve communion, 
 , greet people, and share their musical talents with 
our church family.  Please put some prayerful thought into
giving of your time and talents!

Contact the church office if you are willing to serve.
 You are very much appreciated!
