Monday's Here

MONDAY'S HERE Hi Friends, may God richly bless your week with awareness of his Glory, Goodness, and Grace.

Yesterday's worship was an absolute blast, including Jon and Andy's attempt to be funny.  You can see the whole thing by clicking HERE.

And, more importantly, here are two questions from Matthew 7:1-12 to think about:

  • What "specks" in others' eyes do you tend to focus on?
  • Who can help you see the "log" in your own eyes?

UCI ChristmasThis year for our Christmas project we are collecting Christmas presents for Haitian children through the UCI Ministry. This is similar to Operation Christmas child, except we will be filling a one gallon sized plastic bag with gift items. We are asking you to fill the bag with items for the child along with $4.00 to help cover shipping. This week we handed out all of our first fifty children, and started a list for those wanting to still participate, and will be getting some more children's profiles in soon.  If you'd like to sign up, and didn't get a chance to, please contact the church office at 737-4542 or, and we will be sure get your name on the list, and a profile packet to you soon.    If you want to just give a monetary donation to cover shipping, you can put it an envelope labeled “Haiti Shipping” and give it to Kristin Brouwer.  We will be collecting the bags through the month of October, and they can be placed in the plastic tub outside of Kristin’s office.


Lynn Cowell Teens Moms Nov 7-8aWe have an amazing opportunity coming up for girls ages 7th-12th grade and their moms.  Trinity will be hosting a conference with a special speaker from Proverbs 31 ministries, Lynn Cowell on November 7th and 8th.   This is also open to mentors of teens or moms with girls who aren’t teens yet, and it will be focusing on issues of faith, relationships, and self-esteem for those teenage girls.  Click HERE for more information and registration.


In addition to the needs in the bulletin, please add Vickie Riphagen.  Vickie was taken to Mercy Hospital on Sunday afternoon for observation and tests following some seizures.
