The word of God is a refining fire. Jesus is the great divide in human history. He invites our undivided attention and devotion. Today, in the assembly, we are surrounded by “so great a cloud of witnesses.” In the word and in the holy communion we are invited yet again to look to Jesus, “the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.”
Luke 12:49-56Jesus brings fire on earth and has a baptism with which to be baptized
Seeking Volunteers to Build Community!
Our community meals have become one of the highlights of each week at First Trinity. They are free meals, shared by community members, and enjoyed by everyone who is able to come. Community meals are a safe place for our homeless neighbors to rest and have something to eat, a gathering place for our seniors, and a great way to meet neighbors, volunteers, and others in our community.
We need some help! We need volunteers to help prepare, serve, and clean up after meals, twice a week. Volunteers can donate food for the meal or use items from our pantry to create a meal.
If you think this is something you are interested in doing, please contact Rene at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to find volunteers to sign up once a month, or as able. We also welcome youth groups, church groups, groups of friends, community organizations, and others to participate as able.
