TRINITY TIDINGS
NEW BIBLE STUDIES TO BEGIN SEPTEMBER 8
In addition to being in the Divine Service, there also will be a couple of opportunities to be in God’s Word on Sunday mornings.

Listed are the Bible studies being offered, beginning on Sept. 8. In addition to the Bible studies, Trinity’s Sunday School will resume on Sept. 8.

Sunday School sign-up can be done by clicking here .

Bible studies and Sunday School are from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

A Genesis study
Bible study leader: Pastor Golter

Bible study theme: How was life in the beginning? Jump into the new Sunday morning Bible study on the first eleven chapters of the Bible's first book. What happens in the beginning sets the stage for the rest of the Bible, and your life.

Bible study location: Fellowship Hall. 
 
Who Am I and What am I Doing Here?
Bible study leader: Pastor Vokt

Bible study theme: These are the big questions that eventually confront everyone. Using what God has revealed, the study will provide honest and straightforward answers to these twin questions. God does not leave us desolate, wondering who we are. He does not condemn us to grow up in the dark, seeking meaning in life. The sessions will explore what God has revealed about life’s biggest questions. They will shed light on the difference that knowing the answers makes for the way a man lives. The answers are waiting. God is ready to tell you not only who you are but also what you’re doing here.

Bible study location; School library.
 
Financial Peace University
Bible study leader: Bill Meyer

Bible study theme: Beginning on Sept. 22, Trinity will be offering the Financial Peace University course. The course, which will last 10 weeks, is an opportunity to better manage your resources according to sound Biblical principles. Stay tuned for registration details.

Bible study location: TBD.
