Winter Small Groups Sign Up

January can be a cold and gray month. That time after the great joy and emotional time of Christmas is often blah and dull. So why not join a winter small group? Meet some new friends, study something different or join with some friends you already know. Maybe invite that person who has been on your mind to come along too! Here are some Small Groups that will be offered starting the week of January…

May this story encourage you to see God at work in your life this week. Our informal Christmas Assistance ministry matches families who ask for some help at Christmas with Trinity families who want to help. For 4 weeks, we have been organizing, and this past Thursday those families needing assistance came and picked up the gifts supplied by Trinity families often for children, or in situations where there has been a dire emergency. Thanks…

Update: December 17th & 19th

How quickly the calendar brings us to the brink of Christmas. As I hear the song “The 12 days of Christmas” I confess I am singing “Only 8 Days until Christmas.” But time will pass whether we note it or not, and the only wise way to approach time is to use our time wisely, and in gratitude to God for each day and in preparing for Christmas it’s critical for Christians to use these days…

For those struggling with loss, loneliness, worry, and pain this Christmas season

In the Sanctuary at 5:00 pm When you just aren’t able to feel the joy of the season, it can feel as though you are the only one struggling this time of year. And it can feel as though you should just be able to turn off the grief, the struggle, the worry, the loneliness you are experiencing and be happy, but you can’t. It might feel as though the world doesn’t get it or…

December Savor Suppers for Women

Savor Suppers are opportunities for women to gather for faith-filled fellowship, a simple meal and rich conversation. Something beautiful and significant happens when women gather and share something of themselves in small gatherings. It gives each one a chance to be seen, be heard, and be known in ways that are sometimes hard in our world today. It gives women a chance to connect with other women at a different level than is possible in…
