Trinity Presbyterian Church of McKinney Texas is a PC(USA) church for North Collin County that invites honest questions as we worship and serve a big, mysterious God. We take the Bible so seriously that we don’t take every passage literally and miss the intended meaning. We are intentionally inclusive and welcome all, really all, who want to grow in grace, understanding, compassion, and service in the name of Christ Jesus. At the center of our Christian life are five core practices that we call the 5G Life.
A Candle in the Dark: A Season of Hope
Advent is that time of the church year when we wonder what it must have been like to wait for the Messiah, the special person chosen by God to come and save God’s people. Perhaps this year more than most years we sympathize with the anxious waiting of the Jews as we face our own feelings of struggle and fear and oppression.
But Advent is about more than remembering Christ’s birth and how it fulfilled the promises of God. Advent is also about the way we are still waiting, living in the kingdom now but waiting to one day see the kingdom fill the whole earth when Jesus comes again.
Phased Plan for Regathering
As we plan the reopening process of our physical building and campus, we prioritize the health and safety of our members and our community over our own desires to reopen quickly or for a hasty return to normal operations.
As of November 18, the Pandemic Response Team and the Session have made the determination to move back to Phase 1 of our Phased Reopening Plan. Phase 1 allows for small groups (20 people or less) to meet outdoors, but all safety guidelines must be followed. Please contact the church office to schedule an outdoor location to meet. Click below to view the full Pandemic Response Plan and guidelines for each phase, as well as links to county, state and national data sources used by the PRT and Session.
Pandemic Response Plan
We are now offering OUTDOOR in-person worship service at 11 am on the south lawn of the church. Each worship attendee is asked to bring their own chair, and masks are required.
We have increased our social distancing guidelines to 10 feet between families. Upon arrival, each attendee will have their temperature checked and be asked to sign an agreement at one of the three welcome tables stating that they have not experienced any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days.
In addition to outdoor worship, we will continue to offer the same high-quality online worship each Sunday at 11 am. If you have breathing problems, heart problems, or a compromised immune system, we ask that you enjoy the online worship experience from the comfort and safety of your home, rather than attending in person.
*In the case of inclement weather or temperature below 50 degrees, outdoor worship will be cancelled.
The annual Christmas Giving Tree mission project looks a little different this year due to the pandemic. We will be supporting families from the Community Lifeline Center, Scott Johnson Middle School, and Presbyterian Children’s Homes & Services. Local families need our help more than ever this year!
All Angels have been adopted!
We are still in need of volunteers for our
drive-through reception for the families to receive their gifts. Thank you for making Christmas special for local families in need!
Join us for an outdoor drive-thru event on December 6th from noon- 1:30 pm to help Trinity’s youth group raise money for World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. To help us stay socially-distanced, all treats will be individually wrapped and photos with Mrs. Claus will be taken at a distance and made available on Trinity’s Shutterfly page. A donation of $5 or more per serving is greatly appreciated!
Join Trinity’s Choir for a virtual Christmas Cantata, Sing Christmas, A Christmas Choral Experience. Arranged by Mary McDonald and Joel Raney, this cantata includes original music combined with favorite carols, creating a perfect blend of familiar and new.
With the uncertainty of our current times, job losses, and lost wages, the need to help feed our neighbors is now even greater than before. As a church that cares for others, we will meet this call and do our part to help those less blessed than ourselves.
Each Saturday morning from 9-11 am in our south parking lot, near the McKinney Little Free Pantry, we distribute food to families who need it. If you would like to volunteer, simply sign up on the Signup Genius page and come help us help others.
The Carter Bloodcare Mobile returns November 29 from 7:30 am to 2:00 pm in the south parking lot. Donors must be 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and generally be in good health. Appointments are required.
Trinity’s Christian Education leaders miss everyone during this time of social distancing and we have been creating new ways to stay connected. We hope everyone is safe and healthy and can’t wait to be back together soon!
