STUDY, SERVE & SUPPORT
Help Serve Fellowship on Sundays
We need volunteers to help serve coffee and doughnuts between worship services. If you are willing to help, contact Becky Dieleman or call the office.
Volunteer with Family Promise
Our next host week will be Sept. 5-12. We are tentatively planning to host at Holy Trinity. We will need people to help with set up, clean up, and meals; we also need van drivers, evening hosts, and overnight hosts. Sign up online. Contact Carlie Fitzgerald or Scott Hamilton with questions.
Subscribe to NEW Daily Prayer Videos
Subscribe to Love Notes, a daily devotional video by Holy Trinity. These short videos are delivered to your inbox each morning and include scripture, prayer and reflection. This video series will launch mid August. But it’s only an experiment – it'll last 3 months - and then we'll decide if we continue the ministry.

THE HANDIWORK OF GOD
Jeff Bezos had a dream that became a reality this week when the Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket was launched. He was joined on this journey by a small cohort of others. This brave group began an adventure they never experienced before. I wonder what it was like. There is a part of me that would relish the experience, but then another part that says, “If you can’t ride on a roller coaster, you might not be a prime candidate for a rocket ship!” But I do marvel at seeing firsthand the vast space of the heavens.
