- WELCOME TO TRINITY!
October 24, 2016
Although our online presence may provide a small glimpse into our life together as the people of God here at Trinity, we sincerely hope that you will
WE HAVE RETURNED TO OUR REGULAR SCHEDULE – worship at 8:15am and 10:45am; Sunday School for all ages at 9:30am
LUNCH TIME BIBLE STUDY – We continue our lunch time bible study on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month, at 12:00 noon. Bring a bag lunch and dessert and beverages will be provided. Please join us for a great time!
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY – The Women’s Bible Study will resume September 17th. We will be discussing “Mudhouse Sabbath”, a novel written by Lauren Winner. After her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Winner found that her life was indelibly marked by the rich traditions and spiritual practices of Judaism. She set out to discover how she could incorporate some of these practices into her new faith. Hope to see you all on September 10th – Rally Day – for the Sunday School blanket project.
MEN’S BIBLE STUDY: MISSION POSSIBLE
Blessings! Most of us can remember the television series and recent movies Mission Impossible. It is a spy thriller filled with covert action, intrigue, and impossible challenges. Despite impossible odds, the team always found a way to accomplish the assigned task. They responded to the challenge.
Jesus is calling us to complete His mission. How will you respond? Mark 9:23 – Jesus said “Everything is possible for him who believes.”
Beginning September 10th, the men will again meet during the Sunday School hour. As Christian men, we too have a mission that Jesus has called us to do. Our mission will be possible because we believe in Jesus. I encourage and invite all men to be a part of this mission and faith journey. We will uncover the mission, dig into Scripture, learn, share, and enjoy fellowship with one another. There is no homework or assignments. Matthew 17:20-21 – He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move from here to there and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Respond to His call, sign up for the mission! Let us move some “mountains together”!
Yours in Christ! – Gary Klaas

500TH REFORMATION CHALLENGE – The women of the church are continuing to collect items for the 500th Reformation Challenge. The goal is to collect 500 items and/or gift cards for each quarter. This quarter (July-September), we will be collecting gift cards (WALMART or TARGET) which will go to Human Trafficking Safe Houses. Please look for the donation box on the table in the narthex. Remember, we do not have to collect all 500 items – they will be added to other congregation donations each quarter. Last quarter (April-June), we collected 60 men’s boxer shorts and 24 women’s bras. Thank you for your generous donations!
