Trinity Named a Winner of 2014 Downtown Denver Partnership Awards

We are very honored to be included as one of six winners of the 2014 Annual Downtown Denver Partnership Awards. The winners were selected by a jury convened by the Downtown Denver Partnership in recognition of the businesses, projects and initiatives that have had the most significant impact on the center city in 2013. Trinity was recognized for its 125th anniversary of service, ministry and mission to downtown Denver from our 18th & Broadway location.

The Partnership put together a short video presentation for all the winners, and we love how they captured the good works happening here at Trinity.

Pastor Mike accepted the award on Trinity's behalf and several members were present at the awards dinner. Here's to our first 125 years at 1820 Broadway!

Big Sunday for Trinity's Youth

Last Sunday, June 1, featured Trinity's youth in a big way.

We were able to recognize our exceptionally talented graduating seniors as they prepare to head off to college.

The youth and chaperones participating in mission trips near and far were also commissioned for their upcoming work in Guatemala, South Dakota and here in Denver.

On Friday, June 6, twelve juniors and seniors leave to spend 10 days in rural Guatemala where they will build a home for a widow and her five children, visit the John Wesley School and meet the student they sponsor, visit a local pastor and his family's weaving project, and learn the history of village of Lemoa where they will be staying. The youth will be taking prayer quilts with them to give to families in Guatemala. The quilts were made by Trinity's Prayer Quilt Team. Congregation members were invited to tie a prayer knot onto the quilts.

In July, Trinity's Middle High youth will spend three days right here in Denver doing mission work and exploring the city through God's eyes. The youth will host an ice cream and games party at the Olin Hotel, make sandwiches to hand out to those who spend their days at Civic Center Park, volunteer with Metro CareRing, decorate bags for Project Angel Heart meal deliveries and serve lunch to our downtown neighbors here in Fellowship Hall.

Also in July, eleven senior high youth will spend a week in Pine Ridge, South Dakota focusing on the Native American culture and learning about the complex issues facing the community. They will paint houses, lead Kid's Club and listen and learn from the wisdom traditions of others.

We will share updates on our youth and these exciting mission trips as the summer progresses.

Trinity Photo wins Prize

Photographer Greg Jacobs contacted us several weeks ago with a  photo he had taken of Trinity that he was going to enter in a photography contest. A friend of Greg's described it as a great depiction of "reaching for the heavens."

Greg just let us know that he won with his image of Trinity. Congratulations, Greg!
