Meet the Pastors Newaygo Campus:  On September 22, after the service, plan to meet the pastors (Gary, John, Scott, and Patrick) as they dialog about the new Built­Up 2022 Vision and how it applies specifically to the Newaygo Campus.  Because a light lunch will be served, please RSVP to Patrick if you plan to attend.  Come with questions and comments and learn how we will be built up together over the next three years.

Do you have the gift of hospitality?  Would you like to help serve our Trinity family?  Do you like to serve “in the background”?  We are expanding the Communion Team.  There are many different parts to preparing and serving communion, and we would love to have you join us in any of these areas.  Communion is generally on the third Sunday of the month.  You would not need to commit to every month, but once or twice a quarter would be most helpful.  “Many hands make light work.”  *Preparing the bread and juice.  This is usually done during the week before or on Saturday morning and takes about two hours.  *Sunday morning.  Set up prior to service, or clean up between services, or helping to coordinate during the worship service.  *Laundering the linens and return to church.  *Contacting and scheduling servers.  Use your  gifts in service for Him.  Contact the office for more information or to volunteer.
