To Pastor and My Church Family at Trinity

I want to thank everyone for the many prayers, phone calls, cards, kindnesses and words of encouragement that have been shown to Dave and me in the recent months since my diagnosis of Cancer. I can’t tell you how much they all meant to me and really lifted me when some days didn’t seem so good. I thank God for being blessed with wonderful Christian friends to help get me through this. God’s blessings to all of you.

~Maggie Dory

Please note the Elder's have voted that beginning Sunday, February 2, 2014 the church time for Creston will be changed to 9:45 am.

Endowment Committee revised policy. Copies are available. Voters will be requested to approve at January 19th the voters meeting.

Stewardship: Matthew 3:15 But Jesus answered him, "Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” The reason God sent His Son into the world is to fulfill all righteousness for us, to do what we could not do. So here Jesus plunges Himself into our sins and soaks them up in His baptism, so that in our baptism we might be cleansed and renewed. The whole of Jesus’ life, everything He did and said, was one great offering to the Father in our stead to fulfill all righteousness for us.

 


Mercy

 

Christian Care: Trinity has established a Christian Care fund to help people in our communities who are in need. You may give to the fund at any time simply use one of the Christian Care Fund envelopes on the narthex table. Any member of Trinity may request a gift for anyone in need. Find forms for requests on the Narthex table.
