Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Together: For the Sake of the World
You may be familiar with the hymn refrain "I am the church. You are the church. We are the church together. All who follow Jesus, all around the world, yes, we're the church together." It's a reminder that the church is not the property or the building, but the people. And a particular people that exist for the sake of the world. Don't miss worship this summer as we dig deeper into the letter to the Ephesians. It's a powerful little book in the New Testament that calls the church to unity, identifies the gifts given to members, and challenges us to live as new people who bless, encourage, and minister to others.

This Sunday's sermon is "Time to Grow Up," by Rev. Steve Price.
Generosity Report
As we enter the second half of the 2018 fiscal year, Trinity would like to thank everyone who financially supports the ministries of the church. Your generosity is helping the church fulfill its mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world. At the end of June, the year-to-date income for the church is $1,359,296 and expenses are $1,413,889, representing a deficit of $54,593. While this is not unusual at this time of the summer, additional gifts between now and the end of August are welcomed and helpful in meeting ministry needs and obligations.

One of the ways your gifts are making a difference is in Trinity's ministries with 6th-12th grade youth. With the recent arrival of both Rebekah Saveland, Director of Youth Ministries, and Keven Braswell, Director of Sonlight, these are exciting and promising times. Check out this video from Rebekah and Keven sharing their enthusiasm for these ministries.
Mission Box
This week's Mission Box is for Created Gainesville. Created Gainesville is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization committed to reaching and restoring women who have been exploited by the sex industry. Through outreach and restorative care programs, they desire for women to understand their value, beauty, and destiny in Jesus Christ.    (text 2 give keyword: created) 
Summer Sunday Lunches
What could be better than lunch and fellowship after worship on Sundays? In coordination with our  Month of Missions , Summer Sunday lunches will be served from 12 - 1pm through August 5. No reservations are necessary, just come and enjoy the food and fellowship. And be sure to invite a friend, neighbor or co-worker to worship with you and join you for lunch.

Month of Missions
Every Sunday through August 5, we are inviting you to participate in Month of Missions - a chance for us to support local and global organizations both with financial donations as well as physical donations - all while enjoying lunch together! Please place your physical donations in the blue bins either in the Worship Center (on Sundays) or by the reception desk in the Education Building (Monday - Friday).
