World Communion Sunday

 

Unity in Christ

Isaiah 45:20-23 & Philippians 2:1-11

The Greek word for Christ’s self-emptying love is kenosis. On this World Communion Sunday, we’ll explore how the kenosis of Christ is the basis for our unity with one another and all of creation.

Breaking Bread is Back!

Breaking Bread is Trinity’s fun, informal meal sharing opportunity for individuals and families of all shapes and sizes to get to know each other on a more personal level.

Those who sign up are put into groups of 3 individuals/couples/family units, and together each group will coordinate where & when they will meet to share two meals together during the months of October – December.

Sign up here or at the Welcome Center before September ends.

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 sandy@newdevelopmentcorp.org to volunteer.
