“Woven Through: The Temple”



“Woven Through: The Temple”

Genesis 2:4-9 & Exodus 39:32-43

This week we begin a new worship series, exploring images that are woven through Scripture. Our first image is the Temple. 
For ancient Israelites, the Temple was the place where God lived among God’s people. And yet, Scripture also shows us that God cannot be contained to one place or time. We’ll explore the way the story of creation resonates with echoes of the Temple, and wonder what that means for the ways we meet God in the world.



Online worship

Please use the following links for this week’s worship. You may wish to prepare your communion elements before we begin.

Kick Off Sunday 
On September 11, we will kick off our new year of programming here at Trinity. This year, we will have monthly potluck meals together. Our first potluck is September 11 after worship. We will gather at church, indoors, in the fellowship hall for a meal together. Please bring your own place settings, and a dish to pass. Though we will be indoors, the theme of this month’s potluck is “Picnic” ! Have fun with it.  
2022/23 Children’s Ministries
Children’s Ministries (children & worship, second hour, and nursery) will start on September 18. Please sign up here if you are willing to volunteer.
Communion Practice at TRC
We Need Your Help! Trinity family, please take a moment to fill out this very brief survey–you can sign up to serve communion and share your perspectives on best practices as we move forward.
Together West Michigan T Shirts
Did you know there are Together West Michigan shirts available for sale through Sunday? These shirts are a sharp sartorial choice, especially when worn as a sign of unity to a Together West Michigan event.
Here’s a link to the order form. T-shirts are $15, long sleeve shirts are $20. Again, the deadline for ordering is this Sunday!
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) 
The New Development Corp. plans to partner with Trinity again next tax season to help folks access resources by completing their income tax returns. Are you interested in volunteering? 
Sandy, from the New Development Corp, is asking Trinity to provide three volunteers (intake/greeter, setup/teardown, or tax preparer). Training takes place in January but Sandy hopes to assemble a team by October. She especially would like someone from Trinity who can help set up, teardown, and move equipment on Wednesdays and Saturdays (mid January through early April). Email to volunteer.
New ESL Classes at Trinity!
