TOPIC OF ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL THIS WEEK

Grant us, O Lord, to trust in you with all our hearts; for as you resist the proud who confide in their own strength, so you never forsake those who make their boast of your mercy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
 
Compare and contrast “the proud who confide in their own strength” and “those who make their boast of” God’s mercy. How may we trust in God “with all our hearts?”
 
Also, please read and reflect on the insert/article commemorating The Feast of Alexander Crummell and UBE Sunday.

PARKING LOT USE

Trinity is privileged to be permitted use of the  fenced parking lot across the street for weekly services and, with approval, for our special events. However, by owner’s terms, cars must leave the lot soon after services, lunches, weddings and funerals or risk being locked in behind the fence. We  certainly encourage use of the parking lot, but caution those planning lunch or other offsite  activities to please park elsewhere after church sponsored events. Thank you for helping us to  be good neighbors with the new owners.
