The first three weeks of February will be a time of stories: stories about our past, our present, and our future. This month is special because it marks the end of a chapter in our story as a church. For over 300 of our worshipers, these stories are brand new. For the rest, it will be reminding ourselves of God's faithfulness to the gathering of believers we call Trinity.
Three years ago this month, the people of Trinity committed another $1.4 million to make this facility a reality. Their faithful, 3-year commitments come to an end on February 15. But the fruit of their commitment has been amazing! There are, on average, 300 more worshipers, each week! More importantly, we are seeing people not only walk through the open doors, but also grow deeper in their walk with Christ, and we have been able to expand our mission commitments locally and globally. Thanks be to God!
On Sunday we will highlight Trinity's past and the faithfulness of this church through the generations. It is important to remember, though, that our faithfulness is really just a response to God's faithfulness to us. As we'll see in Revelation 2, God's great love for us is the fertile ground in which faithfulness grows. We look back on our past to see faithfulness, and really what we're looking at is love. We look back to see who God was, and really what we're looking at is who God is. We are all called to our first love. So as we remember God's faithfulness to us and our faithfulness to Him through the generations, may we also remember this first love.
We'll also celebrate communion on Sunday. Pastor Jon will lead us in the Great Thanksgiving Prayer as an introduction to communion. There are a couple of moments where the congregation participates. The words will be on the screen.
Our Sunday Morning services start at 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Children and Youth Sunday School will meet between services, 10:00-10:50 a.m.
Children and Worship Children ages 5 through 1st grade will be dismissed during the service and can be picked up after church in the Kid’s Area.
