Worship: Sundays @ 9:30, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Sunday Worship
Just a reminder - there will only be ONE SERVICE this Sunday at 9:30am. Afterwards, please stay for fellowship with heavy hors d'oeuvres.  This Sunday will also be family worship, children age K - 5th grade will attend service with their families. Childcare will be available for those pre-K and younger.  If you are able to help with set up and clean up before, during and after the reception on Sunday please contact Franny Long.
 
This week's message will be "Like A Shepherd, You and I," by Rev. Dan Johnson.
Wednesday Worship
In many ways, Simon Peter is a hero of the New Testament, the rock on which Jesus built the church. But he also got it wrong. A lot. And the gospel writers didn't shy away from presenting his story as one that not only had triumphs, but also fear and confusion, falterings and flaws. Join us Wednesday nights at 6:35 in the chapel as we explore his story and consider how it can inform our own.

This week's message will be " Inconvenient Savior, Reluctant Follower," by Rev. Ben Richards.
The Celebration Continues...
On August 25, please join us after the 11am service for fellowship, food trucks, and children's activities. 
New Worship Schedule Begins September 1
We are pleased to announce that a new Sunday worship schedule will begin on September 1. Three weekly services will be offered, including an 8:15 service in the Chapel followed by 9:30 and 11:00 services in the Worship Center. As Trinity seeks to provide multiple distinct worship experiences on a weekly basis that connect with people across a broad range of ages and style preferences, this new schedule will help us offer our very best at each.
Mission Box
This week's mission box supports seminary scholarships available to congregation members. This is a way Trinity helps students as they continue to follow the path that God has placed on their hearts. (Text giving: text amount and "seminary" to 352-204-0163)
