Pray always. Do not lose heart. This is the encouragement of the Christ of the gospel today. Persistence in our every encounter with the divine will be blessed. Wrestle with the word. Remember your baptism again and again. Come regularly to Christ’s table. Persistence with our every encounter with the divine will be blessed

Preparation for worship

Loving Spirit, sometimes I’m eager to be here; sometimes, reluctant. You know my mood today. Please nourish me with the Bread of Life to empower my serving in the days ahead.

Welcome to worship at Trinity. It is good to be here together in the presence of the God whose name is Love.

Join us today for our regular potluck following worship. Food is always plentiful.

TOPS will be using the church at 10:00 AM Tuesday.
