Ring In The Bicentennial

In 1842, two decades into our history, our forefathers installed a bell to call our town to the mercy of God. Trinity’s bell has welcomed our community to experience God in Word and Sacrament, inviting the community to our place of prayer.

Termite damage to the cradle and wheel have rendered our historic bell inoperable, and although, looking forward to our third century, we have many new and emerging ways to invite people to experience God, our bell on the plaza remains a wonderful tool.

In light of our missional purposes the Trinity Bicentennial Committee invites you to participate in the refurbishment of our bell. Will you help us “Ring in our Bicentennial” in 2021?

The refurbishment will cost approximately $40,000. Anyone donating $200 or more over the next four months will be designated “Big Clappers” and recognized digitally in Trinity’s archives, adding to our church’s storied history. This is not a capital campaign but a legacy donation to a worthy cause in honor of your family, or in memory of a loved one. Of course, donations of all amounts will be joyfully appreciated. CLICK HERE to donate now.
