Worship This Weekend – Oct 1st & 2nd

Dear Trinity friends,

Who do you trust? That’s a deep question…and one that is at the center of much of life. Especially since we all have memoirs of times when people have broken our trust. So this weekend we’ll look at this question of trust thought he lessons that Lass is teaching in our congregational reading book “Lessons from a Sheepdog”. The Bible passages are Matthew 14: 28 – 33 and Matthew 28:  16 – 20.

Also this weekend we observe World Communion…and we will celebrate Holy Communion at all 4 weekend worship services. In some services we’ll have parishioners from non-American heritages share in worship.

The Meanz of Grace Praise band provides our worship music and Pastor Don shares the message.


8:15 CHAPEL – Pastor Deb DeVos leads this service and shares the sermon.
9:15 CONTEMPORARY SANCTUARY WORSHIP – Our Celebration Praise band helps us worship God through music and I’ll share the message.
10:45 TRADITIONAL SANCTUARY WORSHIP – Our Chancel Choir will offer music and Pastor Don will preach. The sanctuary will feature a beautiful altar and flags from around the world.

We ask you to help save the church money by picking up your Stewardship mailing this weekend. These will be available only on Sunday in the main foyer. We’ll also have a second mailing for you to pick up next weekend. By helping us in picking up these two mailings you will help us save significant postage costs.

In all services we’ll be formally introducing Ginny Thorpe as our new Congregational Care Lay Minister. Ginny begins her new ministry on October 1st

After worship on Sunday we have two events you are invited to:
Lay Visitation luncheon – if you’d like to learn about being a lay visitor to some of our older parishioners, come to the Rotunda at 12:15.
New Horizons – a seminar comparing and contrasting Methodism with Roman Catholicism; we meet in Starr Hall at 12:30 – a pizza lunch will be provided.

Please keep in prayer our Ignite youth ministry team who are in Wildwood this weekend for a state-wide youth conference; we will have a bus and a few vehicles taking 59 youth and adults to this powerful experience, where over 1000 youth are expected to participate from churches around the state. Please pray for much spiritual renewal and response.

With our focus on the world-wide Church this weekend please make a special effort to join in worship, as we acknowledge that we are brothers and sisters of Christians in many other countries and cultures.

Together in Christ’s service,
