Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Won't You Be My Neighbor?
When Jesus was asked to sum up all of God's teaching into one commandment, he said to love God with all that we are and to love our neighbors as ourselves.  What would happen if everyone took this commandment seriously?  As the beloved television personality, Mr. Fred Rogers says, being a neighbor is an invitation to show someone that they are loved and capable of loving.  Who are your neighbors?  Do you know them?  Do you love them?  Loving your neighbor can change everything.

This Sunday's sermon is "Seeing and Being Seen" by Rev. Steve Price.
Wise Words
Wise Words - Lessons from Proverbs for our Everyday Lives is a 6:35 Wednesday night Contemporary Service message series from August 8 - September 5.

This week's sermon will be by Rev. Aaron Rousseau.
Mission Box
The Mission Box for this Sunday benefits Faith Mission, a Trinity ministry at 3701 NE 15th Street that is a place of grace, love, and hope. The Kids Count after school program, SMILE mentoring program, LOF youth group, Women-to-Women sharing group, Financial Empowerment Team, and workshops are just a few examples of how Faith Mission serves with humility. Renovations at Faith Mission have been significant, and financial support is needed to continue improvements to the facility and the grounds. Thank you for your support through this week's mission box! (text 2 give keyword: faith)

To learn more about these three, and all the others, please check out the websiteFor more information, contact Kim (416-3074)

Point of View: In our polarized world there aren't many spaces left that don't have dividing lines.  POV (Point of View) is an immersive experience that makes space for engaging difficult conversations through the lenses of empathy, context, and mission. A space where you can bring your thoughts, questions, emotions, and heart without the fear of being judged or coerced. We are offering three different POV sessions, sign up here!

Anatomy of Peace: What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, we systematically perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? Every day. This fall we invite YOU to go deeper in your relationships with others by joining a book study on the Anatomy of Peace on  Wednesdays, September 26 - October 17, from 6:30 - 7:30pm. Through a moving story of parents who are struggling with their own children and with problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional, and global conflicts, even when war is upon us. Sign up here!
Estate Planning Seminar
It is considered an act of faithful wisdom to prepare for the final stages of our life.  On September 21, the Trinity Foundation is sponsoring a program to assist you in making these decisions, as well as to learn about the current laws of Florida that can impact your estate plan.  The program will start at 7pm and is designed for people of all ages.  There will be materials available at no charge,  RSVP to Jordyn (376-6615).
