Trinity's 100th Anniversary
Join us this Sunday for a time of fellowship and worship as we give thanks to God for 100 years of ministry! The morning will begin with a wonderful breakfast (location on campus depends on the rain) catered by Green Coat Catering at 9:00am, followed by a Time Capsule reveal at 9:45, and then one combined worship service at 10:30am.
September has Five Sundays
You know that that means - Food & Funds on the Fifth! Start saving up those BOGOS for a food pantry donation and funds for the Pastor's Discretionary Fund which is used to help people who are in an immediate financial crisis. Collection will take place the weekend of September 28/29. Thank you!
Active Duty and Retired Military
Please send in the addresses of those you know and love who are currently serving or retired military personnel. Operation Barnabas would like to reach out to support our service men and women. Please send contact information to OperationBarnabas@TrinityDowntown.com
IMMERSE - Sermon Series & Small Groups
Begins in October!
Immerse is built on three core ideas: reading a naturally formatted Bible, reading at length, and having unmediated discussions about it together. By simply reading and then gathering once per week in "book club" style groups, your congregation will have a place to voice their questions, talk about their concerns, and celebrate "aha!" moments together.
The IMMERSE Reading Bible is a six-volume Bible created with one goal in mind: to provide the best reading experience possible. The text is laid out in a beautiful single-column setting with chapter and verse numbers, section headings, and footnotes removed, and with the content of each book displayed according to its literary genre. This unique reading Bible will serve as the basis for a journey through the Scriptures.
Our Downtown Orlando Pumpkin Patch run by the CDC's PTL group, will receive its big delivery of pumpkins on Friday, October 4. Sales begin immediately thereafter! Buying your pumpkins here at Trinity
supports Trinity's school ministry
! Thank you!
Mark Your Calendar for Pumpkin Palooza
We have a new Trinity family community event coming up in October. We'll be hosting PUMPKIN PALOOZA on Saturday, October 12. We'll begin the morning with a huge COSTUME PARADE through the neighborhood (all Trinity families, friends and neighbors welcome). When they loop back to campus they will walk north to south along our interior driveway which will be lined with parked cars for TRUNK OR TREATING! At the end of the driveway is the PUMPKIN PATCH (pumpkin sales and games) and a FOOD TRUCK so everyone can grab a bite to eat and visit! Will you dress up and walk in the parade? Or will you decorate your trunk and pass out candy in the driveway? We would LOVE to have a FULL line of cars all the way down the drive. Sign ups begin next week!

Hurricane Dorian Disaster Response via LCMS
The LCMS Florida-Georgia and Southeastern districts stand ready to respond to Hurricane Dorian. Through years of preparation in partnership with LCMS Disaster Response, the districts have emergency response plans in place, and Lutheran Early Response Teams (LERT) are trained and ready to assist with recovery and rebuilding where needed. The FL-GA District is also working closely with Pastor Sam Boodle of Nassau to help assess needs and respond. Those efforts are also supported through donations to the disaster fund.

Choir has started and there are plenty of seats available for new members to join us. No one is turned away. Yes, you can sing! Choir meets Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. in the church balcony.

You're Invited to Make A More Joyful Noise!

a few times each year
, and ask that you join us for rehearsal the Wednesday before the Sunday we sing, or even the morning that we sing.

Faith, fun and fellowship are abundant with Make A More Joyful Noise! Please come join us!
Please let us know!
Please let your Trinity family know of any scheduled surgery or hospital stay. In addition to scheduled procedures, please give the church office a call to let us know about extended illness, unplanned hospital stays, or even the birth of a child. You can call the office at any time and leave a message-no need to wait until business hours (407-488-1919 x101). During business hours, that information can then be forwarded to the appropriate caregivers. We'll get back to you ASAP. We want to be sure to know when you need us-whether to pray with you before a scheduled procedure, sit with you during a loved one's procedure, pray for you while you recover, visit you in the hospital/at home or to share praise and thanksgiving prayers for good news/results. Just let us know. Thank you.
Urgent Prayer Requests
If you have an urgent prayer request that can't wait until you fill out a yellow prayer card during worship, please submit it via email to
. While submitting a yellow card during worship is still the preferred way to share prayer requests, sometimes a prayer need can't wait until Sunday. Your prayer request (first name and basic details of the prayer requested) will be shared with a team of committed weekday prayer warriors and will also be added to Trinity's regular printed prayer list for the congregation. All prayers are kept on the printed list for a period of three weeks, so please resubmit long term prayer needs regularly so that they stay on the printed list. Thank you.
