A Service of Healing

A Service of Healing

Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 PM

Scripture strongly affirms ministries of spiritual healing. The root of the word healing in New Testament Greek, sozo, is the same as that of salvation and wholeness. Spiritual healing is God’s work of offering persons balance, harmony, and wholeness of body, mind, spirit, and relationships through confession, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Through such healing, God works to bring about reconciliation between God and humanity and the rest of creation.

As we have experienced brokenness, disappointment, sorrow, tiredness, and fatigue during the pandemic, we want to come together and experience God’s presence and healing. We, as a community of faith, need to hear what has been missed and lost. So let us join together and remember what God has done for us and recognize what God is doing in our midst that we may be restored and healed through the Holy Spirit.

You are invited to a service of healing on October 6 at 7:00 PM in the chapel.

This service will be recorded and uploaded to the Trinity website for those who are not able to join.

SERVE

Volunteers Needed for Kids Ministry

Our kids ministry is looking to fully reopen in September and we are looking for more people to serve in our kids ministry! In our nursery and preschool classrooms, we are looking for volunteers who can serve once a month. For our elementary age group, we are looking for volunteers who can serve for a month. Please contact Jen Williams at jwilliams@trinityumc.net if you have any questions and would like to serve in our kids ministry!

Tech-savvy?  

Does technology interest you? Are you looking for a practical way to make a difference? Do you want to help Trinity thrive? Please consider joining our Audio/Visual Technology Team (A/V Team).
Our live sound and video technology has advanced considerably in the past year, taking on a more central role in our worship ministry. Accordingly, a new and urgent need to build a strong team of volunteers to operate our sound and video equipment in worship has presented itself. There are three distinct roles to play on the A/V Team during a Sunday Service:

  • Sound Tech (operates soundboard)
  • Video Tech (operates cameras and video switcher)
  • Visual Tech (operates the slideshow and cues videos and other media from computer).

To volunteer or to learn more, email Aaron Miller at amiller@trinityumc.net

Got Rhythm? 

If you sing or play a musical instrument; if you love great music, both ancient and modern; if you appreciate timeless hymns and spiritual songs as well as fresh expressions of worship and song; your spirit might just find a musical home on Trinity’s Modern Worship Team.
Our Modern Worship Team is a rotating ensemble of musicians and singers who lead us in song Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. Whether you play the drums or the violin, the clarinet or the bass, the piano or the guitar, there’s always space on our team for musicians and singers with heart.
Email Aaron Miller at amiller@trinityumc.net to learn more.

New Name Tags
Trinity invites you to sign up for updated name tags with lanyards. We believe that wearing a name tag is a simple way to welcome new guests. As a community of faith, we are committed to cultivating a welcoming culture because Trinity is a place where all are welcome. Therefore, this fall, as we clean up the name tag net near Welcome Center, we invite you to be responsible for carrying your name tag, so you may intentionally participate in welcoming ministry at Trinity.
