Saturday Morning Adult Study

All are welcome to join us each Saturday morning for Adult Study. We are currently studying the books of the New Testament

We are currently meeting on Zoom (Meeting ID: 893 3309 1187; Password: 60187) at 9:30 am.

Although the Saturday morning group has been together for some time, we would be thrilled to welcome new members to join us for this survey of the literature that gave rise to our own faith tradition.

The New Testament is something of a paradox. On the one hand, it is a single book—or part of a book, the Christian Bible. As such, Christians believe that it communicates a single religious message. On the other hand, it is a collection of 27 different books, written by probably 16 different authors at various times and places. This paradox expresses itself in a variety of ways. For example, the New Testament teaches that salvation comes through Jesus, but its individual books present differing pictures of who Jesus was and what he taught. This course investigates the diversity of the New Testament by studying the distinct perspectives of its individual writings in their historical contexts.

Christmas Sharing Fund Raising

Christmas Sharing is an amazing opportunity to support our community. For over 50 years we have worked to make sure every elementary school student in District 200 has a great Christmas. This year is going to look a lot like last year. Christmas Sharing will be held on December 11th at St. John’s Lutheran Church. We are partnering with Northern Illinois Food Bank, St. John’s, and Gary Memorial Church again this year. This year two differences are that we are supplying families with a box of cleaning supplies and we will be handing out diapers to families that need them. Instead of asking parishioners to go out and buy things we are asking you to donate what you would have spent to Trinity’s Christmas Sharing fund. A Small Family would be $75.00 | A Medium Family would be $100.00 | A Large Family would be $125.00 You can donate online- please donate under Outreach and in the memo write Christmas Sharing or you can write a check to Trinity and in the memo write Christmas Sharing. There will be opportunities to volunteer on Saturday, December 11th in the Morning. Once we have all of the information I’ll get it out to the congregation. If you have any questions you can email Liz Lanning or call or text (630)707-713.
