Chapel is led by a rotation of Pastor Wagner, Principal Terrell, Trinity's teachers, and specials guests who share chapel talks and messages. Piano accompaniment and singing is led by Miss Rose, Mrs. Scott leads sign language songs, and the 7th and 8th grade students operate the livestream camera. Thanks to all who help make Trinity chapel services possible - and Solo Deo Gloria (Glory to God alone)!
