Baptism:  If you are interested in learning more about baptism, please contact the office.  It is required that you meet with one of the pastors/elders and discuss what baptism means before you will be considered as a candidate.  The next baptismal service is planned for Sunday, January 6.

 Are you an engaging storyteller?  Our preschool team is looking for a couple of people who would like to try their hand at facilitating our large group for ages three to Kindergarden, which occurs during second service.  A script is provided which can be edited to fit your “style.”   Please contact Connie Lossing if interested.   ( or leave a message at the office 796-2600.)

Young Teens and Older Elementary:  We are looking for young people who would be willing to serve alongside our ushers on Christmas Eve and December 30 when we will have special child friendly flyers as there are no TrinityKids Classes.  

TrinityKids/Nursery   Programming:  Please note that on December 30, there will not be classes or nurseries for TrinityKids.  The infant nursery will be available only for nursing mothers.

A New Semester of Trinity Kids Starts in January:  This is a great time to join the team.  Let us know where you would like to serve:  Nursery, Preschool, Elementary, Greeting, Small Group or Large Group or Behind the Scenes.   Email or call the office.  You will need to go through the Caring for Kids screening process.

The Gathering: Ladies, come join us on January 16, at 6:30 pm, at the Big Rapids Campus, for The Gathering. We will share a meal, hear an encouraging message, and fellowship with women of multi-generations. Learn about the exciting things happening in our Women’s Ministry, and learn about and connect to small groups, women’s ministry volunteer opportunities, classes, discipleship mentoring and more! RSVP to the church office.

Missions Committee Need:  The Missions Committee is in need of a secretary. If you have secretarial skills and a heart for missions, we would love to chat with you about our open position.  Please contact the Big Rapids  Church office at 796-2600 for more information. 

Guyana Optometry Mission Team 2019 is being formed.  We are planning to work in Crabwood Creek, Guyana, this year from May 10-21 (dates are slightly flexible).  We are looking for optometrists, optometry or pre-optometry students, opticians, pharmacists, pharmacy students, medical doctors, medical students, nurses, nursing students or others involved in the health care  field.  We will also take several helpers (no medical background needed) to help with our trip.  Please contact the office for more information.

Christmas Office Hours:  The church office will be closed December 24 until January 2 to allow office staff to spend time with their families during the Christmas season.  While some staff will be working a bit during this time, they will be working around their family plans.

Christmas Eve Services:  Christmas Eve Services at the Big Rapids campus are at 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm.  The Newaygo campus will have one service at 6:30 pm.  There are still invitation cards available in the foyer.  Please be sure to invite your neighbors and friends to come with you on Christmas Eve. 

The Church Around the WORLD:  Be sure to pick up your copy of The Church Around the WORLD in the foyer by the Daily Readings.
