Taste of Trinity Story Cookbook
The story cookbook created in honor of our 150th anniversary is a smattering of stories, recipes and history of our church, as told through the lens of food, which always unites us. Thanks to all of you who submitted these recipes and stories. Download the cookbook below or pick up your copy at Trinity just outside the church office doors.

Treasured garments, historic fashion
In celebration of Trinity’s 150th year we explored the history and themes of restoration through the clothing that people wore. Thanks to Marie Saterbak and all those who contributed clothing styles through the decades of Trinity which was on display at Trinity in the fall of 2021.
