April Sermon Series: A Longing for Belonging
April 8: It’s On Us (John 20:19-23)
April 15: In Christ There is No... (Galatians 3:23-29)
April 22: What Do You Bring to the Table? (Acts 6:1-6)
April 29: Outside In (Acts 8:26-40)
One of the most famous TV theme songs of all times accompanied the 1980’s sitcom series Cheers. All of us could identify with the chorus’ lyrics:
Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came; you want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same; you want to be where everybody knows your name. (1)
We are relational beings. As human creatures God designed us with a yearning for fellowship with God and with one another. Built within us all is a deep Longing for Belonging. Church (as that song we learned as children reminds us) isn’t about a building. Church is people drawn into relationship with Christ and one another. In the weeks following the celebration of Easter, the church’s calendar moves toward Pentecost, the birthday of the Church. So, on those Sundays leading up to Pentecost, we’ll be looking at biblical stories that celebrate what it means to belong to this unique community, this unique fellowship, called Church.

Trinity's Honey-Do Jar List
I imagine most of us have heard of that imaginary jar holding the list of the requests we make of our spouses with regards to household tasks. Well, our church “household” also has many tasks that need to be done. Our online “Trinity Honey-Do Jar" lists current maintenance needs: jobs that can be completed in a 1-2 hour framework on a flexible schedule with minimal skills and supplies. If you click on a link to volunteer for a task, Bob Lilly (our volunteer maintenance “team captain”) will follow-up with you by phone or email to insure you understand the task and have all necessary supplies. You will need to complete your task within two weeks of your sign-up date.
