New Sunday Schedule Starts September 12
The congregation voted approval this new schedule PRE-COVID, and now we get to implement it! Praise God! Each week we'll be blessed with both Contemporary and Traditional Worship services, with Sunday School in between! Everyone in worship will have an opportunity for Sunday School / Bible Study either right before or right after their regular worship service! That same Sunday we'll relaunch children's Sunday School for children 4 years through 5th grade (4-5yo, 1st-2nd grades, 3rd -5th grades) as well as MS and HS Youth Bible Study with co-leaders Faith Finger and her faither Tom Finger utlizing Righ Now Media video study resources. AMEN! It's been a long time without and we're thrilled to be getting back to it!

Changes in Worship Service
  • Kneeling at the rail for communion is now an option
  • Blue attendance cards are back. Please fill out your card each week so we are able to track attendance and follow up with those who are away. This weekend, blue cards can be dropped off into offering plate after worship.
  • Next weekend we'll begin to pass the offering plate. It will only be handled by the ushers who will lean into each row to allow for everyone to drop in their offering and blue card.
  • Yellow cards can be filled out with prayer requests. They will be collected during worship by an Elder, prayed over during worship, and added to the Weekly prayer list.
Team Peace is back from Deployment to Surfside, FL
God was with us in Surfside as we provided God’s love and compassion to those affected by the building collapse in Surfside. And God delivered us safely home. We are so grateful for Trinity’s love and support during our deployment. We felt your prayers and you were with us. Thank you so much! Team Peace will share some reflections from their deployment to Surfside during announcements at this weekend’s services. Following services, Julia, Karen and Paul will be in the loggia to answer questions and share additional stories.

Peace's 4.5 Birthday Celebration
The party is back on for this weekend! Please join us as we celebrate Peace's 4.5 Birthday! The celebration will be in the loggia following worship services this Saturday and Sunday, July 17-18. Peace's actual birthday is at Christmas time, so we celebrate her half birthdays during July, which is also when she began her ministry. Our favorite Golden has been with Trinity for 3 years now. We'll have "people treats", coloring sheets, and you can get your picture taken with Peace. PLUS, bring $5 to enter a raffle to win an "Off Leash" experience with Peace, including some training, play time, and lunch with Peace. We hope to see you at Peace's 4.5 Birthday!
Peace Rocks and Kid Power – Coming Soon!
Peace needs Kid Power! As part of Peace's outreach into the community, we've started painting Peace Rocks and leaving them around the community. The rocks share a fun inspirational message or picture and invite people to visit Peace's Facebook page. Join us Saturday, August 14 at 9:30am in the Fellowship Hall. We'll be painting more rocks, plus, everyone will leave with a rock or two to leave behind for someone to find! 
Zip Lines
Connecting with your Trinity family outside of worship and church events is essential! We all need a line of connection to a smaller group of Christian friends with whom we can share our lives, grow in Christ, have some fun, and to encourage one another in personal outreach efforts in our own circles of influence. For that reason, we'd like to connect people living in the same or adjacent zip codes so that you've got multiple nearby church family members with whom to connect throughout the week!

If you'd like to connect with others within YOUR zipcode, contact Chanda Gillenwater, Trinity's MInistry & Communication Coordinator. The goal is to connect every person at Trinity with their very own ZIP LINE where they can build those deep relationships. FOUR zipcodes are now covered - many more to go!!
You Can Help a First Time Guest - SEND IN PHOTOS
DID YOU KNOW? Most people check out a new church online before ever stepping foot onto a church campus. They read our Trinity Weekly online, read over the pages of our website, look at campus maps, listen to the sermons, check out our Facebook page, browse the YouTube channel, and in all those areas, they see PHOTOS of the life of Trinity. That's why we like to have as many photos as possible from our Trinity family, in all aspects of the life of the Chruch.... so that we can post these in the Trinity Weekly, share on the Website, and use as Marketing material to show others what we're all about and reduce some of that "FIRST TIME GUEST" anxiety. Whether its photos of campus work days, of the choir sining via Zoom, kids in Fridat Comunion, Confirmation Essays, Confirmation classes, Trinity members in a meeting or Bible study group all spaced out with masks on, a group out in the community doing a service project with family and friends. ALL of them tell the story of what it's like to be part of the Trinity Family PLEASE, Send in your photos of Trinity Family moments! Send LOTS! Send to Chanda at TLC@TrinityDowntown.com.
Livestreaming
We're livestreaming Sunday 10am worship every weekend. If you need any help finding any services or subscribing to our YouTube channel, please contact Chanda at TLC@TrinityDowntown.com or 407-490-7339.

Christian Yoga continues online via Zoom on Mondays @ 6:30pm. Now more than ever - the relaxation of yoga is a tremendous benefit. Email Beth for more information at baschu4@bellsouth.net.
