Anniversary Sunday

Sunday, August 6 | Sanctuary and reception in Fellowship Hall (Level 3)

20160807 121002 forwebTrinity's first worship service was held August 2, 1859, at the confluence of the Cherry Creek and Platte River where REI is now located. On Sunday, August 6, we will give thanks for 158 years of mission and ministry as Denver's first church.

We will celebrate the legacy bequeathed to us in several significant ways:

  • The theme of both worship services is gratitude for our legacy.
  • Dr. Dent's message will be Leaving a Lasting Legacy.
  • Trinity members and Rocky Mountain United Methodist Foundation leaders Kristi Kinnison and Sheri Altland will be present to answer questions, share materials, schedule consultations and lead a session on wills, legacies and estate planning during the Sunday School hour.
  • Members of the Trinity Legacy Society will be honored.
  • The Trinity Board of Trustees, which oversees the endowment funds of the church, will serve ice cream and cake following the 11 a.m. worship service in Trinity Café. They will be available for conversation on the importance of our permanent funds.

Plan now to be a part of this very special celebration that marks our past, focuses on our present and looks to the future of our historic church family!

Trinity Primetimers Visit to the Wild Animal Sanctuary

wild animal sanctuaryThursday, August 10, meet at the Wild Animal Sanctuary at 9 a.m. | Wild Animal Sanctuary, 2999 County Road 53, Keenesburg, CO 80643

The Wild Animal Sanctuary houses over 450 lions, tigers, bears, wolves and other rescued and rehabilitated animals roaming freely in large acreage habitats. The animals have been rescued from abusive situations across the globe. This is not like a zoo. Visitors use a walkway 20-feet above ground – the longest footbridge in the world – to watch the animals in their habitats without disturbing them. Learn more

The walkway is approximately 1.5 miles one way. Electric scooters and wheelchairs are available to rent for $5. (It is recommended to reserve these in advance.) Admission is free for those over 70; the cost is $30 for those under 70. Financial assistance is available by contacting Willa or Tom Kampman. They will ask for a donation to help care for these magnificent animals. Carpooling is recommended, but not a must. Bring your binoculars and cameras!

We will then have lunch at The Pepper Pod in nearby Hudson around 12 p.m.

RSVP with Willa and Tom Kampman, 303-425-0447.

Tom Noel – aka "Dr. Colorado" – will join us for lunch at 12:15 p.m. before leading us on a walking tour to the sites where Trinity was located prior to the move to our current location at 1820 Broadway in 1888.

Tom Noel is the author of 50 books with the most recent being Colorado: A Historical Atlas, which was awarded the High Plains Prize for Best Western History Book in 2016. In 2015, Tom was the Grand Marshall of the Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Tom received his Masters and PhD in history from the University of Colorado and is currently Professor of History at University of Colorado in Denver and directs the Center for Colorado Studies at the Denver Public Library.

On August 13, we will enjoy a box lunch (order when making reservations), a brief program, and then walk to the 16th Street Mall to take the shuttle to Larimer Street to begin our tour. The cost is $20 per person. When we last offered this experience in 2014, it sold out quickly so make your reservation soon!
