Dear Trinity, As we prepare for the Fall, we’re looking forward to the 8 new small groups that will be offered! And you can sign up for a group TODAY…everything from Godspeed to Prayer Groups to Alpha to Book Discussions. If you’ve never been through Godspeed, I encourage you to join one of the two groups (either in Wenatchee or East Wenatchee). It’s a great way to get to know people and start to understand the heartbeat of Trinity. Or, if you’re wanting to follow up from the topics we explored at Family Camp, you might want to check out “A Church Called Tov.” The book talks through the traits of a toxic church and the traits of a “tov” church, which is the Hebrew word for goodness. Our prayer is that this book will help us name hurts from our past that we can name as a group and help us become a place that promotes healing and goodness. If you’re a mom, and finding yourself running low on connection and support, consider joining the Mom’s Prayer Group, which will give you the space to connect with other women, receive prayer, and listen to the scriptures. Or maybe you’re someone who wants to read old spiritual classics in community...Some of us will be reading St Athanasius’ “On the Incarnation” (4th cent.) and you’ll come away nourished with the refreshing perspective that comes from reading ancient literature. There’s more groups to talk about, but you can check them all out HERE Whatever you choose to join, I pray that this Autumn, we would know each other and be known ourselves. And then from this place, may we be inspired to reach out in love toward our neighbors. With love for every one of you, Carson P.S. - Don’t forget to bring a gift for the Canlis gift basket! This Sunday is the last day…
Congregational Meeting Recap
Missed the Congregational Meeting last Sunday?
Watch the video recording HERE (note: people’s questions at the end are repeated back into the mic by the staff)
You can grab all the handouts this Sunday at church, download them here:
Scripture: 2 Samuel 16-18 Chapter: Chapter 18: Suffering — David and Absalom Preacher: Nate Kellogg
After David’s abuse of power and Bathsheba, we may be left wondering “shouldn’t God just scrap this whole Davidic rule and move on to someone else?” We see in these next chapters that while there are severe consequences to David’s destructive choices, God is faithfully at work to maintain His covenant promises. Even when David is suffering the most and continuing to fail (this time as a father), God keeps His arms open as a faithful and loving Father toward David.
Service Times: 8:30 and 9:45
