Re-opening for worship

Trinity’s doors are scheduled to open for in-person worship services
on Sunday, June 21! Details are included in the VOT.

Check back here periodically for updates on what days the food pantry will be open.

The Trinity Food Pantry has now hosted two mobile food distributions on Monday, July 27th and August 10th, since being closed for the construction at Trinity and the exterior of the Food Pantry and due to COVID-19.

The next scheduled distribution is for Monday, August 24th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Here are ways you can help and support the Food Pantry ministry:

  • Volunteer to help for any or all of the time on the days of the distribution. Setup will begin at 8:00 am and cleanup is completed around 2:30 pm.
  • Pass the word on to anyone who may benefit from the food distribution or has a food need. Please look for future food distribution dates for the fall.
  • Support the Food Pantry financially and with your prayers.

   Thank you to all the leaders, volunteers and supporters of the Trinity Food Pantry ministry!

Food for Thought

Sunday, September 20, 2020
Read Matthew 20:1-16

Today’s scripture is one of Jesus’ teachings about “the kingdom of heaven (or the kingdom of God).” Mercer’s Bible Dictionary says “the kingdom of God is understood in the Hebrew scriptures and teachings as whenever and wherever “God exercises His royal power.” Faithful Jews were always hoping for the coming of the kingdom of God (see Mark 15:42-43). Jesus uses a parable, a simple story, to describe what it will be like when the long-awaited kingdom of heaven comes. The story is challenging for people of the time because Jesus describes the kingdom of heaven on earth as a situation that seems unfair and unjust. But Jesus’ summary at the end (vs.15-16) opens up our minds to God’s intentions for the world when God fully exercises His royal power. When the kingdom of heaven comes, “on earth, as it is in heaven,” the world will be filled with holy generosity and equality for all.

  • Will this “new heaven and the new earth” (see Revelation 21), in which all people are equal, and God is generous to all, be a blessing for you, or would it seem “unfair”?
  • If this is where we are going to end up, why not start now?

                           God’s Word for This Week
May the Holy Spirit humble you to understand God’s generosity
Monday, September 21                                   Luke 15:11-24
Tuesday, September 22                                   1 Timothy 6:17-19
Wednesday, September 23                             Psalm 36:5-9
Thursday, September 24                                 Matthew 7:7-11
Friday, September 25                                      Psalm 37:3-5
Saturday, September 26                                  Matthew 5:43-45
