Though we may be emerging from the pandemic, many of us are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with feelings of fatigue and fear. This past year made clear to us all the weakness of our institutions, the frailty of our lives, and our desperate need for grace. In times like this, calls to action can fall flat because we’re simply struggling to get out of bed.
But Christ is not just the Lord of the Great Commission, but he is the gentle and lowly Shepherd. For the next four Sundays we want to take time to remember the great words of comfort that we have been given - for security, for hope, for courage - and spend time abiding in the goodness of Christ, which lasts longer than the trials at hand.
Exodus is the story of the God of redemption, the God who brings together a people, and the God who dwells with us. This fall, join us as we come together around a survey of Exodus, to worship God for all he is, and to lift up the Name of the Lord as those who have been given mercy to know his Name.
So often we spend our lives believing the content of the Gospel, but how does it really change the way we work, the way we consume media, the way we prioritize our weekly activities, the way we engage with friendships, or even the way we prepare to age and die? We believe that the Gospel absolutely speaks to all those things. We will be taking topics one by one and demonstrating the real, down-to-earth, practical ways the Gospel shapes our lives. This is Gospel in Life
In the next installment in our Matthew series as we see conflict heating up around Jesus. As his ministry continues, it becomes clear that the values of the Kingdom clash with the arrogance, pride, and apathy of his day, and people start to polarize around him. I'm sure the same will be true of us. At every step we'll find that Jesus' grace is sufficient for the journey, as we learn the way of the Upside-DownKingdom.
In this series we’re looking forward to exploring what’s most important in the lives of God’s people, and exactly how we as Trinity Community Church can grow in pursuing what’s most important. We have four values as a church (Gospel, Worship, Community, and Mission), and while all of them are important, the one that holds them all together and makes them possible is the first - The Gospel.
