Watch our Sunday sermons online! The message will be posted through various communication channels:

1) Trinity Website: Video posted Saturday evenings.

2) YouTube Channel: Video premieres at 10AM CST on Sunday mornings.

3) Facebook Page: Video premieres at 10AM CST on Sunday mornings. 
**Given the sheer volume of people watching live stream or pre-recorded videos on facebook Sunday mornings, we (along with many other churches) experienced some video glitches last week. There were no issues watching the sermon via YouTube.

As you are aware, information pertaining to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is constantly changing by the hour. Community transmission has now been confirmed in the state of Iowa, the White House has issued a statement advising against gatherings of over 10 people, and the state of Iowa is closing all schools until at least Monday, April 13th.

As a result of these updates, Trinity Bible Church will be taking further precautions to reduce the spread of the virus by canceling all Sunday worship services through at least Sunday, April 12th. All Trinity-related programming has been canceled through Sunday, April 12th including small groups, Bible studies, choir, Awana, Genesis, and Mosaic Housegroups. The church office will also remain closed during this time.  

We understand that the uncertainty of this outbreak may be creating anxiety for you as daily activities continue to be disrupted. Let's remain certain of God’s steadfast presence in our lives and be a beacon of hope for those around us. Please continue to pray those who are affected by the virus, and those working to contain the impact of the Coronavirus across the globe. 

We also ask that you pray for our leadership team as they discuss alternative online worship opportunities to support our Trinity family. We will be sharing those options with you in the coming days.

If you want to join us in collective prayer, we will be hosting a weekly virtual prayer gathering starting Wednesday, March 18th at 6:30p-7:30p via Zoom. To join this weekly video conference call on Wednesdays, go to bit.ly/trinityprayer

In Christ,
