Living With Faith in a Time of Uncertainty

During this time, while we are unable to GATHER TOGETHER, we will meet you WHERE YOU ARE, to help connect FAITH to LIFE in these uneasy times.

Worship With Us!

Join us online every Sunday morning at 11 am for a LIVE worship service. Worship will include special music, readings, prayers, gospel lesson, sermon, and a children’s message. We encourage you to tune in live but, if you can’t, we’ll keep the service on our website and YouTube channel for you to watch when you can.

Connect With Us!

We want to stay connected with you during this time of “social distancing.” Make sure you follow us on Facebook, where the pastors will check in daily. We’ll also post updates from our staff, host online discussions, and offer virtual learning opportunities.

Not on Facebook? Click here to see some of the videos that are being shared on our Facebook page.

Serve With Us!

Many of you have asked for ways that you can continue to serve during this time.  Keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe from the virus is critically important, but “social distancing” might mean painful isolation for some of the folks. If you know someone personally, reach out with a phone call, a text message, or an email. Your conversation and concern will mean so much! Here are some additional ways that you can serve with Trinity:

Reach out to our at-home members with a phone call.  Please contact Pastor Liz and she will help to get you connected.
Are you still going out for groceries and other essentials? We are working with Camp Hill Borough to compile a list of people who are willing to do some grocery shopping and medicine pick-ups for shut ins. Contact us if you are interested in being added to this list.
Coloring for our at-home members. People of all ages are invited to print and color this page and write a short note to our at-home members. We will be creating little care packages of scriptures, crosswords, and your notes to send to folks who do not have access to all of the resources we’ve been sending digitally. Please mail your completed notes to the church office and we will take it from there! If you want, you can also scan and email them to Tom Notestine.

Support Our Ministries

While our doors may be physically closed right now, our ministries are not shutting down. We’ll continue to minister to our congregation, community, and world during this time of trial. Our employees will work remotely, and our building must still be maintained. It is important that we continue to support Trinity with our offerings/contributions. Please mail them to the church office or visit the donate page.

Let Us Support You

How are you feeling? We have no doubt that each of you is feeling something a bit different during this time. These are not normal circumstances that we are living in. We pray that each of you is feeling God’s presence during this time.  If you would like to speak to a Pastor, please call the church office at 717-737-8635 and press 1 to leave a message. Someone will call you as soon as possible. You may also click here to submit a prayer request.

Dig into the Word

Carve out some time to reflect on scripture with the weekly sermon.
Connect with our Facebook page to find devotions, prayers, and messages from our pastors and staff.

Faith Connect Kids!

Until we can be together again in person, Miss Amy will be bringing you our Faith Connect Kids! lesson virtually. Tune in every Sunday afternoon, after worship, to see the lesson for the week! Watch this week’s video now! We all miss you and can’t wait to see you soon.

Children and Youth – This is for you! 

Each Monday our Youth Director, Peter Fox, will be coming to you with a ““Monday Message.”  Watch this week’s message now! We are looking forward to being all together again soon.

Also, do you know that we have an active Instagram Account? This account is currently being run by some Senior High and Young Adult members of our church. Make sure you follow us!

6 Strategies for Parenting during the COVID-19 Crisis

Thanks to the recent spread of the Coronavirus, we’re spending an unprecedented amount of time indoors, with no foreseeable end in sight. If you’re worried that you’ve already found the end of the internet in an effort to entertain your restless family, we’re here to help! We’re all navigating really strange and chaotic times.

That Discomfort You’re Feeling Is Grief

Some of the HBR edit staff met virtually the other day — a screen full of faces in a scene becoming more common everywhere. We talked about the content we’re commissioning in this harrowing time of a pandemic and how we can help people. But we also talked about how we were feeling. One colleague mentioned that what she felt was grief. Heads nodded in all the panes. If we can name it, perhaps we can manage it. (Read More…)
