A Day of Equipping
O Discovery Classes! May 1st, 8th, and 15th in Room 233 Got Questions? Get answers. Learn what it means to be a member of Trinity’s faith family and much more! If you would like to attend, call the church office (791.0440) or email Pastor Jim Smith, email@example.com or Cynthia Scheeser, firstname.lastname@example.org
n May 15th we will begin something new and exciting called ‘A Day of Equipping’. On this day we will be asking every member of Trinity to attend training of some kind. The Bible is clear about discipleship and training. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”. In the great commission Jesus tells us, “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:18). We are called to teach not just head knowledge, but we are to train people to be obedient. No matter who you are, there is a place for you to serve. The Bible teaches that there are no exceptions to service. Everyone has spiritual gifts, and we must use them to advance the Kingdom of God. Just imagine how powerful we could be as a Spirit-filled body if every member of Trinity served in some capacity every week. Please begin to pray about where God would have you to serve, and I look forward to seeing you on our Equipping Sunday! Eddie Coakley John 3:30

Singing His Song,
From April 8-10, Trinity’s middle and high school students came together for an in-town, weekend retreat. It was GREAT! Guest speaker, Brent Metcalf, taught the students how when you have a genuine encounter with God, your life is noticeably changed forever. To put it in the words of our theme for the weekend, you glow. One of the benefits of “retreating” is that it provides an environment in which relationships can be formed and deepened; and not just relationships between students or with adults. One of our students gave her life to Christ!

Thanks to all who were involved!
We are drawing closer to the time we finally get to be with you, and we can’t wait! The Lord has blessed us greatly and continues to affirm His leading us to you, the Trinity family. We are praying for you and ask for your continued prayers for our transition. My first day in the office there will be Wednesday, May 4, and our first “official” Sunday with you will be May 8. See you soon!
Dan the Animal Man! What an incredible event in the life of our church. Together we were able to share the message of God’s perfect and grand design with 1,500 students in SIX different Elementary Schools, as well as share the gospel message with nearly 1,400 people in our big Wednesday night event at Trinity. Thanks to all the volunteers who made this event possible, and lets celebrate together as 8 people came to know the Lord as their personal Savior! And the alligator didn’t eat anyone (that we know of.)
