Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:30, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Sunday Worship
This weekend's message will be "The Jesus Challenge: Loving Your Neighbor" by Rev. Steve Price.

If you attend the 9:30 Modern Service on Sunday Mornings, head over to Spotify to take a listen to the songs that the worship team will be helping to lead during the service!
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 "Being Known" by Rev. Ben Richards.
Mission Box
This week's Mission Box is for Grace Healthcare Services Corp. The purpose of Grace Healthcare Service Corp. is to establish a non-profit community pharmacy to provide free prescription medications to indigent and uninsured individuals in our community. They provide healthcare and related services to under-served populations and needy individuals (Text giving: text amount and "grace" to 352-204-0163).  
Wednesday Night Dinners
Join us for food, fun, and fellowship. The menu for September 11 is Taco Stuffed Peppers, Yellow Rice, Black Beans, Mixed Vegetables, Cheese Quesadillas, Soup, Salad, and Dessert.  Dairy and gluten free options are available. The kitchen is open from 5 - 6:30pm. Adult meals are $7, children 6 and up are $3, and 0-5 eat free, with a $25 family cap.

Prayer Shawl Ministry: About 15 years ago, a prayer shawl ministry was started through United Methodist Women and a group called Dorcas. The ministry knits or crochets shawls to be given to people in difficult situations including life-threatening illnesses and during grief. At this time, we need people who are willing to knit or crochet shawls. Thanks to a generous donation, we have lots of yarn. If you can commit to making one shawl, please contact Linda Cook. The prayer shawl ministry is an important part of our caring ministry here at Trinity. Thank you for your help.
There will be a Sewathon at Trinity's Youth Building on Saturday, September 14 for Days for Girls. Each month, girls around the world must miss a week of school because of a lack of basic sanitary supplies. Days for Girls is an international organization that makes kits of reusable, washable supplies. The local chapter, started by a Girls Scout troop in Alachua, also makes kits for local women to use through partnerships with St. Francis House, Arbor House, Victim Services, and more. The local projects are partially funded by the Women's Giving Circle and other local grants.  Two sessions will be held: 9:00 am - 1:15 pm and 12:45 - 5:00 pm. Pizza lunch will be available for $5.00.  Bring your sewing machine if you can, but sewing machines and all materials will be available. Whether or not you sew, come join us; last year over 100 people attended.  There are lots of jobs to be done! For more information, contact Jeannine Cawthon  or Radha Selvester.  You can register here.
