A new year provides an opportunity to refocus, reevaluate, and make resolutions along the way.
The new year also marks a new semester, a time abuzz with activities and competitions. It’s rewarding to see our students’ efforts recognized within the school and the local community. Whether our students are successful in reaching their goals or experience disappointments along the way, we strive to remind them that God’s love is constant. He is with them through all of life’s circumstances.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 8:38-39

We “ReFreshed/ReFocused” at the annual Night of Worship led by our secondary students, including the Praise Team and the choir. The evening was a truly refreshing time in God’s presence!
Mr. Howard showed his support in the beach-themed student section by dressing accordingly for the Trinity high school boys’ basketball game against Wheeling Central. The game was a 3-overtime nail-biter, with Wheeling Central coming out on top at 99-90.
Our team was very excited to extend the game into overtime!
