This week is Holy Week and we have a few events this week to celebrate Easter! On Easter Sunday April 16, we will have our Sunday services on both campuses to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We encourage all to come a little early to meet with our church family and to listen to our worship session. Additionally after the service, we will be celebrating baptisms on both our Monterey Park and Rowland Heights campuses. We welcome you to stay for that!
We have a couple events going on before Easter Sunday. On Friday April 14, we will have our Good Friday service at 7:00pm at the Monterey Park campus. This is a time where we reflect on Jesus’ trial and crucifixion on the cross. It is also a chance for us to celebrate His sacrifice for us. We would love for you to join us.
The next day on Saturday April 15, we will joining in part with the city of Monterey Park’s Easter Egg Hunt. It’s a great event for the kids to go around the park looking for Easter eggs while us families can mingle and enjoy a day out with our community.
Thanksgiving is around the corner and we have a lot of be thankful for. As a church, we are so grateful to the Lord for blessing us with a new campus in Rowland Heights and a lot of new faces that we get to welcome into our church family.
Our church family has seen the blessings of God and some of them wanted to share them with you. Whether it is a big or small thing, God is worthy of praise always.
Here are some things that our church family is thankful for!
The mission of Jesus Christ is fulfilled with the resurrection on Easter Sunday. Every Easter, followers of Christ celebrate this day as it is the promise of God becoming reality. It is the foundation of our faith.
Trinity is excited to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection on Easter this Sunday with everyone. It is a very meaningful day for several members of the Trinity family. We asked some of our members what Easter means to them. Here are the responses. We hope that this is as encouraging as it is for them.
Easter is the foundation of our Christian faith. Because of Jesus’ resurrection, all of us who have been adopted as children of God have been gifted with the promise everlasting life with Christ. Amen!
Well, for one, in the words of Bill Gaither’s song, “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.”
This week is Holy Week and we have a few events this week to celebrate Easter! On Easter Sunday March 27, we will have two services to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our services are at 9:30 am and 11:15 am. Additionally after the second service, we will be celebrating baptisms as well. We welcome you to stay for that!

We have some good news! We have more kids at Breakfast Club (9:30am option for children) than our facilities can handle! Praise God! What this means though is that we have to accommodate the influx of kids by re-purposing some old space.
We will not be opening the black gates that leads into our South Parking Lot from Garfield Ave. until 10:52 AM on Sunday mornings. Because we have so many kids, it is no longer safe for cars to be driving in and out of that alley near the playground where our kids are playing.
How will this affect parking?
Because there will only be one way in or out during our first service at 9:30am, we respectfully ask that if you park in the South Parking Lot to pull all the way in. This way, we can fully utilize the parking spaces we do have. Now if you want to leave before 10:52 AM we ask that you consider parking a little further away from Trinity as you may not be able to get out.
Thank you for working with us as we continue to keep our children safe!
Last year we posted an FAQ page about Trinity’s Easter Sunday service. We think it’s good to share that again with a little bit of some updating. Since this past fall, we’ve added a second service to our worship time on Sundays. You can join us for service at 9:30am or 11:15am.
Additionally, we have a couple events going on before Easter Sunday. On Friday, we will have our Good Friday service at 7:30pm. We usually do a combined, joint service with several churches from our area but this year we will be having our own service. We would love for you to join us.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Easter on Sunday. It was a tremendous day of fun and celebration and it was such a blessing to have Mayor Anthony Wong, firefighters and police officers join us for our Easter Egg Hunt. The children loved playing around in the park.
Our service was very exciting and we loved seeing new faces. The message of Jesus being the way to God is one that we hope will stay in your heart.
We love our community and we are so grateful to share the message of Jesus Christ’s resurrection with the people we love. We’ve uploaded many pictures from yesterday onto our Facebook. Give us a like and check out the photos.
May God bless you all and we hope to see you again real soon.
You may have seen these postcards around the neighborhood inviting everyone to join us on Easter.
I grew up in a church my entire life and I had an idea of what to expect when attending church. But sometimes when I visit new churches, I still wonder if it’s going to be the same as before. Some people have never had that experience and visiting a church for the first time could be an uncertain experience.
We here at Trinity hope to be able to provide all visitors a welcoming experience when visiting us. But we know that there might be some questions about us that you might have.
Taking a page out of Ron Edmondson’s post, we think a FAQ page for Easter might help you out. And if you have any more questions, feel free to leave it in the comment section and we’ll get to it. Someone on our staff will make sure you get the answers you need.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
What does Christmas mean to you?
With Christmas only a couple days away, it brings back a lot of memories for some people. For others, it’s a time during the year where we reflect on the great gift God gave us with the birth of Jesus.
For everyone, there’s a different story about Christmas. Not everyone grew up with the same celebrations and for some, the story of Christmas is ever changing. Some have great family memories. Others have surprise presents.
We asked several people of our church to share their Christmas story. What was their favorite memory? What do they look forward to every year? What does Jesus’ birth mean to them?
Here are our stories:
What I love most about Christmas is that for one quiet morning, I feel as if God and my family have my full attention. The distractions of work and the world seem to fade away and I am fully present in the moment. I am truly content and blessed and at peace.
