Trinity’s Faith Practices in Regards to COVID-19 Update

Dear Trinity family and friends, Here are our worship plans going forward:

We will not be having open worship services through the rest of May, but will continue with our online worship.

We are hoping that we will be able to resume open worship services in early June.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Food for Thought

Read: John 17:1-11

On the night before His death, Jesus spoke to His Father in prayer: “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son so that the Son may glorify You.” To glorify means “to shine brilliant light on the splendor, power, and majesty” of the glorified. Jesus is the light of God’s glory, giving eternal life to all who believe in Him.

Sing or hum along with the hymn “To God be the Glory”:
“To God be the glory! Great things He has done! So loved He the world that He gave us His Son, Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, and opened the life-gate that all may go in! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Let the people rejoice! Come to the Father, through Jesus the Son, Give Him the glory! Great things He has done!” (by Lou Fellingham)

  • Jesus says that He has been glorified in the world by His disciples. (v. 10).  As a disciple of Jesus, have you given glory to Jesus by showing other people His works of power in your life?
  • The great composer Johann Sebastian Bach said that when he played music, he felt his soul praising God. He signed every piece of music he wrote Soli Deo Gloria: “To the glory of God alone.” Could Soli Deo Gloria be written on your life?

Food for Thought

  • Jesus says that we need to “change and become like children” in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3) Here Jesus invites us to do two things in order to be part of His kingdom: 1. “change”; and 2. “become like children.” Which one of these things is more difficult for most people to do? Which one would be more difficult for you? Why so?
  • Jesus lifts up a little child to us as an example of “the greatest in God’s kingdom.” What is it about a little child that Jesus is lifting up as an example? How would it change your life if you were to choose that way of living in the world?
  • Jesus says that “whoever welcomes a little child in His name” is actually welcoming Jesus himself (Matthew 18:5). Have you ever seen the face of Jesus in the face of a little child? Did you recognize that moment as holy?
