SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4 ALL SAINTS SUNDAY

The glorious text from Revelation 21:1-6a is the perfect text for All Saints Day; lofty and grand, yet tender and comforting, too. We will celebrate the saints who have gone on to glory this past year, and many past years; come to the Lord’s Table for communion, and offer our annual gifts and tithes as well! A big and lovely festival day in the life of the church, which will include the thought-provoking homily “All Things Made New”.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11 VETERAN’S DAY SUNDAY

The timeless gospel story of the woman at the well will be shared today by an Episcopal friend, The Rev. Jill Honodel. Pastor Dave will lead the liturgy and assist with the Veteran’s Day celebration.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18 THANKSGIVING SUNDAY

We conclude our sporadic exploration of the book of Hebrews today with the words found in chapter 10: 19-25. It is a most uplifting text, and all the more so for our annual Thanksgiving Sunday. The sermon today will be entitled “Confident, Assured, and Encouraging”. And it is our hope to welcome several new members among us at the 10:30 service, as well.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25 CHARGE CONFERENCE SUNDAY

The final Sunday of the liturgical year is usually celebrated as Christ the King Sunday, and we will at least lean that way this year. The dramatic encounter between Jesus and Pilate as found in John 18:33-37 will be the foundation of our time together today. “The King of Truth” will be the sermon. And later in the afternoon, please come back and join us for our annual Charge Conference, 3:45pm, Hadley Hall.

Trick or Trunk

Trick or Trunk

On October 28, immediately following the 10:30 worship service, our kids will have the opportunity to enjoy the annual Trick or Trunk event in the church parking lot. But they can only enjoy it if you participate. Bring your vehicle, decorate your trunk (to whatever extent you wish) and hand out goodies to the kids. This is always a fun time for the entire Trinity family.

Membership Committee Seeks Volunteers

Membership Committee Seeks Volunteers

If you are interested in serving on the membership committee this year please contact Rich, Pastor Dave or Mary Wahl. The office number is 343-1497 should you not have a directory handy. This committee has fun together and is very effective. We meet once a month in the church office. The day and time will be decided when we have a full committee. Thank you in advance for considering working with us.

Pie! How I love pie! And that love is both familial and religious; pie suppers are a deep and savory part of United Methodism as I have lived it. This fall at Trinity will be a tasty time, for sure. Your Membership Team will be managing signups for the Bible Study, and your Finance Team will be offering insightful, brief presentations during worship starting in mid October. The finance campaign will conclude on All Saints Day, a day we celebrate the whole pie of believers, not just the ones currently in the room or on the earth. And it is the day when we anticipate the gathering and feast to come, the reunion to end all, and I wager there will be pie, right?

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7TH
WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY
Hebrews 1:1-4 leads us into a celebration of Jesus’ glory and earthly impact as we gather with Christians the world over for Holy Communion. The homily today will be called “Reflected or Embossed?”.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14TH
We continue in the book of Hebrews, chapter 4, vs. 12-16, a faith-shaping text about our deeply empathetic Lord. The sermon will be entitled “A Sympathetic Savior”.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 21ST
We return today to the gospel of Mark, chapter 10, vs. 35-45, where we encounter a rather famous story of some ambitious disciples whose zeal is bigger than their ability! It is a good story to hear every so often, as we focus our own spirations and ministry. The sermon this morning will be “Be Careful What You Pray For”. We also will begin our annual Stewardship campaign today.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28TH
One more visit to the grand book of Hebrews, chapter 7, vs. 23-28, which details the rather impressive resume that Jesus brings to the table of our lives. The sermon today is called “Appointed to Perfection”. We will also doubtless spend a bit of time with the thoughts of Martin Luther on this Reformation Sunday, continue our financial reflections, and enjoy the annual Trick or Trunk event following the 10:30 service. Costumes are welcome today!
