Advent is a season of preparation for one of the holiest days of our Christian year – the birth of Christ. This year, our preparation is going to begin even earlier – in August and September.
We will put together an Advent devotional booklet for our Trinity family. It will be filled with stories of how God is at work in our lives, how God is at work in the world. We will provide Scripture readings for each day of the Advent season. All we ask is for your help in supplying the stories and prayers for each day.
This is a wonderful way to build community within our church as we share with one another and encourage one another to grow in our faith. The devotional booklet can also serve as a resource for family devotional times, fostering even more community.
If you are interested in writing a story and prayer (up to 350 words) for one or more days in the Advent season, please let me know. I have a list of the Scripture passages for you to choose from.
Join us for Trinity Day on September 6 from 4-6:30 p.m. for a time of community building and fun! All are welcome to attend as we kick off our new 2014-2015 Education year! Adults are invited to speed-date the adult educational offerings while the children meet their Sunday School teachers and get acquainted with their classrooms. We will all come together for a brief time of worship followed by a potluck dinner.
