Trinity’s Life Together

Trinity’s Life Together

 

Welcome to Trinity!

A warm welcome to all! You are invited to fellowship and light refreshments following worship in the Lobby. 

 

A Message from the Pastors

“From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” (Psalm 113:3) What a gift to praise the Lord in summertime in the land of the midnight sun.  When we praise the Lord from dawn to dusk in Alaska, our worship can be practically endless.  We love to camp this time of year, as do many of you, and we find ourselves pushing our awake time farther and farther with the sunshine every night. What a joy to sing worship songs around the campfire and rejoice in God’s gifts of nature, beauty, re-creation, and toasted marshmallows! We pray your    summer brings you many moments of rest and renewal, and many     opportunities to raise your voices in praise. We hope to hear some of your summer stories of adventure and faith and always count it a blessing to talk and pray with you.

 

Mission Sunday, August 4, 2019

Join us for this family friendly Sunday, as James and Cheryl Cloyd, missionaries with Alongside Ministries in Strasbourg, France, as we hear about the inspiring work they do!

                  

Help Water the Garden ~ Please!

The garden planted during Children’s Church on June 9th is thirsty and would like watering.  It takes about 30-45 minutes every other day to water the beds for two minutes each.  If you would like to help, please add your name and phone number to the sign-up sheet posted on the “In the Garden” Bulletin board in the foyer. 

 

What Music do you love?

Please share your favorite worship songs and hymns (including artists) so we can add them to future services.  Look for the card in the bulletin, or email the church office at.  churchadmin@trinityalaska.org                          

 

Library News

Knowing God comes through reading scripture and praying. The library bulletin board, in the Lobby, features books on prayer. Come, visit our beautiful Library and check out one of  these books and learn more about communing with our infinite God. Books may be checked out any time the building is open.

 

 

Our Trinity Family is lifting prayers this week for:

 

-Happy 102nd Birthday on July 21st to

Rev. Alice Green!!!!

Gratitude to God for recovery from health concerns of the past year!

 

- those who have lost precious loved ones, we pray for those who have been left to grieve. Soften their sorrow knowing their loved one is at peace with our Lord.

-those who are traveling, for work, pleasure, or grief. Keep their journey safe.

-those scheduled for medical procedures. Calm and comfort their fears, give them a good recovery and a positive outcome. 

-those who are recovering from medical issues, praise God for successful treatments and recoveries. 

-people who travel as missionaries. Keep them safe and make them Instruments of the Lord’s blessings, love and peace.

-those who have entered the sacrament of Holy Matrimony, may their new life together be filled with love, peace, and joy of the Lord.

 

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

 

Romans 5:1
