Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
The Good Life
UF Freshmen have to take a class called, "What Is the Good Life?" where they explore ideas about what constitutes the good life.  For us as Christians, the first letter to Timothy offers us these wonderful words of counsel: "They are to do good, to be rich in
good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life." (1 Timothy 6:18-19) Each week in this series, we will focus our attention on one way Scripture invites us into this life that really is life, or in other words, the good life.

This Sunday's sermon title is Give Generously, by Rev. Steve Price.
Scattered to the Kingdom Come
The 6:35 Wednesday Night Contemporary Service began a new message series on October 4 entitled, "Scattered to the Kingdom Come," and will run through November 8.
Mission Box 
This week's mission box will again support the community Thanksgiving Basket program. This will be Trinity's 11th year coordinating the donations and distribution of 1,300 Thanksgiving meals, however, this program only works when the whole community participates. So grab a flyer on Sunday or  print one out. Put up a donation box at work, your community center, with your scouting or Rotary group, everywhere!
