Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
"An Unexpected Journey" 
Sometimes life throws us a curve ball even when we think we have it all mapped out. Sometimes things just don't go the way we had planned. That's what happens again and again for the heroes of our faith in the Book of Genesis. For Noah, Abram, Jacob and Esau, and Joseph the journey is not always what they would have anticipated, yet through it all God seems to make a way. Join us for these summer Sundays to see what message God might have for you as you seek to make sense of your life's unexpected journey.

This Sunday's sermon title is " United: Family Forgiveness," by Rev. Catherine Fluck Price ( Genesis 45:1-15).
Mission Box 
This week's Mission Box is Bread of the Mighty Food Bank. Their mission is to provide hope and encouragement to the hungry. They acquire, sort, store, and distribute food to non-profit programs that provide for the needy (text 2 give keyword: bread).
Prayer in the Chapel
In her sermon on June 4, Catherine challenged the congregation of Trinity to be in prayer daily for the church. She also challenged you to join her every Tuesday this summer from 5 - 6pm in the Trinity Chapel.  It will be a time to sit together in silent prayer listening for God's direction and praying for our church. During that hour, you are welcome to come and go as you need to and to come any week you are able.  Let's stick together and pray as we are "united in our devotion to prayer."
Trinity Foundation Grant Applications
The Trinity Foundation was created in 1995 as a way to provide long-term financial support for the mission and vision of Trinity United Methodist Church.
 
Gifts and bequests received by the Foundation enable our church to grow endowments that fund ministry opportunities for generations to come. Income generated from the general endowment fund has been made available over the past three years to support qualifying mission initiatives of the church.
 
For the year 2017, the Foundation Board has again authorized the distribution of the income from the general endowment fund. These funds will be granted to initiatives identified by ministry areas within the church that are consistent with the mission and vision of Trinity. The best applications will demonstrate innovation, creativity, and/or timeliness in meeting a particular need/opportunity outside the scope of the annual operating budget.
 
Applications to request funding may be obtained here or from the Foundation administrator, Laura Richardson. Deadline for submission of applications is Thursday, September 7. Awarding of grants will take place at the September 20 meeting of the Foundation Board.
