     I began my call at Trinity on March 1, 2016 and I am excited to be a part of this exciting vibrant community. Together, we seek to serve God and our neighbors in new and exciting ways. I love to lead worship and teach about how our faith is a part of our lives every day. Mostly, I want everyone to encounter God in ways that are life-giving..
     In addition to my service to Trinity, I also serve as a chaplain in the United States Navy, Reserve Component. Through this ministry I have the opportunity to reach many who need to hear about God's love and grace. I have recently started to work in the Chief of Chaplains OFfice in the Pentagon
     I am blessed by a family who has supported me in my ministry. My wife, Laurel, and I have been married for 22 years and have two children, Cole (19) and Sydney (17).
     Please contact me HERE if you have any questions!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Cris Frigm
    I have served as Director of Music since October 2016. I am very excited by the ministry we produce together and the inspiring music we create all in the name and worship of Christ.
     I come with a background of various musical styles, techniques, and denominations. I have lived in Westminster all my life and attended McDaniel College for my Bachelor of Arts degree in History. During my education, I studied organ under Ted Dix, a great friend and colleague. Currently, I teach for Baltimore County Public Schools at New Town High School. Primarily, I teach 10th grade World History. 
     Other than piano and organ, I enjoy working on my antique Packard, fire engine, and tractor. I serve Westminster Fire Department as their Vice President. I am both a Maryland certified fire fighter and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, Jocelyn, and our 4-year-old black lab, Coal.
All the best,
Tim Bangerd 
Having taken on the role of Office Administrator in May of 2016, I thoroughly enjoy working at Trinity and am excited about what lies ahead! I have a background in office work having worked at law firms and a consulting firm in Washington, DC, as well as various non-profits here in Carroll County.

Currently, I am also the owner of "Events by Lexi," a corporate, social, and wedding planning and coordination company, and have worked with many couples in the Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia areas, making sure they have a fabulous start to their "happily ever after."
Originally, from Northern Wisconsin, I moved to Northern Virginia right after college. I met my husband there, and we moved to Westminster in 1995, when he accepted the call to be the pastor at St. Benjamin's Lutheran Churchin Westmister. We love it here! Our family has grown to include our two daughters, Creason (in college at Salisbury University) and Chamberlyn (a student at Westminster High School), and our 12 year-old beagle, named Bella.
