This Week

Remember the sabbath day. Call the sabbath a delight. This is the Lord’s day, and the Lord will do for us what the Lord does: feed us, forgive us, help and heal us. Rejoice at all the wonderful things God is doing.

Readings and Psalm

  • Isaiah 58:9b-14
    Do not trample the sabbath, but feed the hungry
  • Psalm 103:1-8
    The Lord crowns you with mercy and steadfast love. (Ps. 103:4)
  • Hebrews 12:18-29
    You have come to the city of the living God and to Jesus
  • Luke 13:10-17
    Jesus heals a crippled woman on the sabbath and is condemned
    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  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.
