Trinity is offering an online giving option designed to simplify weekly giving in our congregation.

Electronic giving will enable every household or individual to make their church offering using electronic funds transfer or credit card.

You may already be using online bill pay for your mortgage, car payment, or insurance premium through an automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account. Many of you also have used your credit cards to purchase goods online through Amazon, eBay, or a number of other sites. We have teamed up with myEoffering to enable you to use the same process to give our offering electronically from your bank account, credit or debit cards.

There is no cost to you for this new giving option. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. And when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue uninterrupted.

Thank you for considering this new giving opportunity.

ABIDING IN THE REIGN SERMON SERIES          


SUNDAY'S BEGINNING NOVEMBER 3rd




SERIES OVERVIEW


No, not singing in the rain, al though there might be some songs of praise once we grasp the full reality of this promise, or even catch a glimpse of the promise . This series is about claiming the gifts of living in this life and yet fully participating in the reign of God, or what has been traditionally called the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God was the number one subject that Jesus came to share ; therefore , it is something we continue to try to understand and embrace.


Let’s unpack this idea of “the reign of God” a little bit, as it is crucial to the concept of this lectionary series. There has been some push back recently over certain traditional terms , and it is instructive to understand why. One the one hand, North American Christians see the idea of kings and kingdoms as something belonging to the past, and our images most often come from fantasy novels and television shows like “Game of Thrones” and other manifestations of kingly rule. While you may have been fascinated by the story in “ Game of Thrones, ” it is safe to say that show doesn’t represent the God we worship in any form or fashion. And to those unfamiliar with the nature of God, the correlation of this fantasy kingdom behavior to the God we are attempting to repre sent to the world would be detrimental to our witness. At the same time, an overemphasis on “king” as the patriarchal presentation of God leads to a single gender identification that doesn’t allow for the fullness of the Spirit nature of God, which can be experienced as the divine feminine as well as masculine manifestations. So, to fully claim this more expansive description of God, many have moved away from “king” and “kingdom” toward other terms, such as “reign.”
