He Came to Seek and Save the Lost
, Trinity is hosting a special memorial service for 73 men and women who died without a home this past year. Some were estranged from family, some had no family, many had friends who shared their struggles. All will be recognized as persons who, we pray, knew God loved them and saw His love in action because of you or someone like you who "gave something to eat or drink, or clothing, or care, or a visit" (Matthew 25:35-36) Beginning at 10:30 a.m. in our church sanctuary, Pastor Zehnder will welcome several hundred members of the community and city and county government who believe in dignity for all people. Scripture readings and eulogies from community leaders with a candlelit memorial highlight the service. It is a moving and humbling experience you will be thankful to participate in. A small reception follows in our courtyard.
Servant Saturday, January 28th -- Save the Date
Trinity's first "Servant Saturday" is scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 2017. This is a morning set aside to reach out into the community and lend a helping hand to others. YOU will have an opportunity to volunteer from 9am to 12pm, at one of the following:
Orlando Union Rescue Mission Bargain Thrift Store: sorting, displaying donated items to sell.
Grand Ave. Primary School in Parramore: helping indoors or outdoors with special projects for this primary school
Coalition for the Homeless: preparing bag lunches for 150 families, serving, cleaning up.
Look for sign-up opportunities in early January, and get your name in before our 15 slots for each place, are filled. After our morning of volunteering, we will reassemble at Trinity for lunch and sharing. Sounds like a grand opportunity, doesn't it? For more information contact Gladys Dittmer at
