Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Strength to Love
In a time when there is so much that seems to divide people, how can Christ lead us in our relationships with one another? As Trinity enters a new year focused on the theme of "Deeper," we begin with this series that takes us deeper in our commitment to love through our differences and across divisions. We'll find, as the title of a collection of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s sermons suggests, that the kind of courageous love Jesus models requires great strength. Come be challenged and inspired to be a more faithful follower. Sundays, January 14 - February 11.
 
This weeks sermon will be "Love Will Take You Places" (Mark 2:1-11), by Rev. Steve Price.
Ash Wednesday Service
Join us on February 14 for a special time of worship marking Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of Lent. We will gather that evening at 6:35pm for a unique and meaningful service in the Worship Center with seating in the round (will replace the normal 6:35 service in the Chapel). This day historically marks the beginning of a time of preparation for persons of Christian faith. We turn our hearts to God and recommit to walking the journey that will lead us to the cross, where we encounter the depth of God's love, and on to an empty grave, where we find hope in the power of God's love even over death.
Mission Box
This week's mission box supports our chartered Boy Scout Troop 454 on Scout Sunday. The proceeds of the Mission Box will go toward troop equipment, travel and scholarships. Also, a portion will be given to the district to help fund their scholarship program and district camps. Scouting builds leadership skills and character development in our youth to help them succeed in life.  (text to give: scouts)
