All Are Welcome!

This Week

Time to regroup post-summer and cellebrate all things First Trinity. Give thanks for what God has done, hear about new FT stuff, and take a step to connect to community in new and deeper ways.

Pot-luck after church. Bring your neighbors and your friends!

It's gonna be great.

Called to contemplate the cost of discipleship today, we might be helped by translating Paul’s request to Philemon into our prayer of the day: Refresh my heart in Christ. Strengthened by the company and forgiveness of the Christ in the blessed sacrament and recalling God’s grace in remembrance of baptism, we can be strengthened in this hour to “choose life”—to choose life in God as our own.

Readings and Psalm

  • Deuteronomy 30:15-20
    Walk in the way of life and hold fast to God
  • Psalm 1
    They are like trees planted by streams of water. (Ps. 1:3)
  • Philemon 1-21
    Paul says: Receive Onesimus as a coworker
  • Luke 14:25-33
    Jesus says: Disciples, give up your possessions and carry the cross
    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.
