First Sunday of Advent

Sunday, November 27, 2022

 

Happy New Year! We begin the new church year with a wake-up call: Christ is coming soon! In today’s readings both Paul and Jesus challenge us to wake from sleep, for we know neither the day nor hour of the Lord’s coming. Isaiah proclaims the day when God will gather all people on the holy mountain and there will be no more war or suffering, when swords are made into plowshares. Though we vigilantly watch for the promised day of salvation, we wait for what we already have: Christ comes among us this day as the word and meal that strengthens our faith in the promises of God.

Worship begins at 10 AM in the Sanctuary, entrance off Wheeler Street. 

Livestream worship begins at 10:00 AM. The recording will be available soon after.

Thanksgiving Eve Worship with Holy Communion

6:30 pm Wednesday, November 23, 2022

A Thanksgiving meal at 5:30 pm in Thompson Hall. (Doors open at 5 pm.)

Every gathering for worship has elements of thanksgiving. When we are nourished with God’s bounty of grace `in holy communion, when we partake of Jesus’ word that gives life to the world, and even when two or three of us simply join our hearts in prayer to make our requests known to God, we do so “with thanksgiving.” Let us give thanks to God, who is good and whose mercy endures forever.

Following the Thanksgiving meal, join us for worship with Holy Communion at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary (enter off Wheeler Street). 

View livestream online or on your smart TV at Trinity’s YouTube Channel (search for Trinity Parkland) beginning at 6:30 pm. and also available as a video following the live worship.  To participate in Holy Communion, please have bread and wine (or juice) for yourself and family.

Twenty-third Sunday after Pentecost

We live in a betwixt & between time, between birth and death, between the past and the future. We need to remember the past so as not to repeat it but to build on it.

We live into the invitation of the apostle: “Do not be weary in doing what is right.”

The Gift of Baptism

All are invited, especially those considering being baptized, or having their children baptized.

In the midst of his faith struggles, Martin Luther is reported to have found consolation in telling himself, “I am baptized.” Remembering the promises of God embodied in the water and the Word of God gave him hope and courage in tumultuous times. In this session we will look at the roots of Christian baptism and its meaning for our life today. We will seek to respond to questions participants may have about baptism. Please join us.

 

Reformation Sunday

October 30, 2022

Rooted in the past and growing into the future, the church must always be reformed by the Spirit in order to live out the love of Christ in an ever-changing world. We celebrate the good news of God’s grace, that Jesus Christ sets us free every day to do this life-transforming work. Trusting in the freedom given to us in baptism, we pray for the courage to boldly proclaim God’s Good News and pray that Christians will unite in the shared mission of being God’s people.

Following worship, there will be an Octoberfest lunch to celebrate the 505th Anniversary of the public beginning of the Reformation

The Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost

October 9, 2022

Today we hear of the healing of people considered on the outside of society. It is a day of unexpected blessings and miracles, signs of how God is active and alive and present in our world and in our lives when we are open and receptive to the possibilities. We hear, read about, and experience healing. Fragile relationships are restored. Hope is experienced in profound ways. Ten lepers are made clean. But only the outsider—the foreigner—returns to give thanks. The promise of the cross is that our God joins us in our sufferings and in our hardships, giving us strength and hope that we may endure with thanksgiving.

Worship begins at 10 AM in the Sanctuary, entrance off Wheeler Street.
