YOUNG WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

Mondays 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 pm. in the Kelso Library

Matthew: A 12-Week Study

By  Drew Hunter , General Editor  J. I. Packer , Series edited by  Dane C. Ortlund Lane T. Dennis

The book of Matthew paints a powerful portrait of Jesus as Israel’s long-awaited Messiah, the one who would bring God’s kingdom to earth and fulfill his promises to his people.
Leading readers through this hope-filled book, this guide explains the biblical text with clarity and passion—inviting us to encounter God’s one and only Son: Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Over the course of 12 weeks, these studies explore books of the Bible and:

  • Ask thoughtful questions to spur discussion
  • Show how each passage unveils the gospel
  • Tie the text in with the whole story of Scripture
  • Illuminate the doctrines taught in each passage
  • Invite you to discover practical implications
  • Help you better understand and apply God’s Word

Part of the  Knowing the Bible  series.

Contact Danielle Alvarado at:  dalvarado@trintygalv.org  to join the group. 
CALLING ALL GRADUATES
Traditionally we honor our high school graduates at the 10:30 am service on a Sunday close to the end of the school year. We present them with a monogrammed Leather Book of Common Prayer to start them on their next step in life and to let them know they are in our prayers.
 
If you or someone in your household is a member of Trinity and will be graduating high school or college, please contact the church office to provide the graduate’s full name. We would also like to know about their future plans, ie. what college do they plan to attend, what is their planned major, are they going to a special job, or in the military? 
 
We will also list the names of our Trinity School graduates and where they plan to continue their studies.
 
Please provide the information by the end of April to allow time for monogramming the books and collecting the information for the leaflet.
