Sunday's Coming ~ February 25, 2018

Is there more to being a Christian than going to church and trying to be a good person?  Is following Christ simply about believing all the right things or performing all the right rituals?

At Trinity we believe that the answer is an emphatic, “Yes!”  God calls us into a journey of “becoming,” not just one of believing or doing.

We use the word “discipleship” to describe this journey, and over the next several weeks we are going to be exploring some of the key elements of this journey in a series called Rooted.

This week Michelle Christy will look at what the scripture says in Ephesians 2:10 and ask the question “How can I make the most of my Life?” We will focus on who we are, how our identity as God’s sons and daughters is what motivates us to be and do the good works that God has prepared for us in advance.

This week Pastor Brian Keepers will be focusing on "There is an enemy"  We will look at scripture Ephesians 6:10-20.  As we grow into the image of Jesus, we can expect that the Enemy will seek to thwart God’s good work in us.  We’re engaged in a spiritual battle.  But God gives us the whole armor of God to help us stand firm and be set free from spiritual strongholds.

And once we know His character, then we can walk right through suffering with Him!

IF: Gathering 2018

Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 9.27.04 AM.png

Ladies you are invited to participate in the 2018 local IF: GATHERING, February 9-10, hosted at First Reformed Church in Orange City.

The IF: GATHERING is a global gathering of women across denominations, generations and cultures as women come together via simulcast in the name of Jesus.

What IF we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? At IF:Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder--it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees. Join us!

Friday night there will be supper and Saturday a breakfast and lunch will be part of the event. Bring a friend and enjoy a weekend of learning and fellowship.

Men of Trinity ~ Serving & Ministry Opportunities

Men of Trinity Opportunities.png

Have you been looking for a way to serve and connect with other men at Trinity?  The Men's Ministry Team has a new opportunity for you to do both.

Starting February 21, the men of Trinity will be serving as the Wednesday evening meal clean-up crew.  We are looking to alleviate some of the hard work our other groups are performing by providing the dining area clean-up.  Our window of service will run from 6pm to approximately 7pm each Wednesday night meal.

After our clean up is complete, everyone is invited to hang out for an informal time of Bible study and fellowship with the other guys.  We will be using Patrick Morley's "70 Things Every Man Needs to Know" to guide the discussion.  There will be no preparation required for the study, just come as you are.  We anticipate finishing up no later than 8pm.

Our first study is scheduled for February 7 in the sanctuary from 7:00 - 8:00pm.  The topic will be Biblical Manhood.  Bring a friend and enjoy some fellowship with other men of Trinity.

Thanks for your interest in the Trinity Men's Ministry.  We look forward to serving with you.
