Wednesday Evenings at Trinity
Starting at 5:00 PM
January 8-April 29, 2020
Midweek on Wednesday evenings is the heart of our weekly fellowship and teaching time.
Life and ministry are busy and oftentimes hectic. At Trinity we have adopted the ACTION philosophy for weekly activities – All Church Things In One Night. Rather than have Church activities spread all over the weekly calendar, we make Wednesdays a priority and seek to keep our weekly activities as much as possible limited to this day. Families can come for an ACTION packed time together on Wednesday evenings and still be home by 8:00 p.m.

Trinity’s Youth Ministry sets aside Wednesday evenings during the school year for our middle school and high school students to meet for Bible study, worship, and fellowship.
Students meet in The Frith. In this setting, students are given the opportunity to study God’s Word and explore ways to apply it to their daily lives.
Bible Studies and Small Groups — 6:00-7:15 p.m.
January 8-February 26 (seven weeks)
Patrick Curles | Trinity Hall
“What is God like?” There is no more important question than this one. As we come into a right knowledge of who God is, we come into wholeness and completeness as people. We are called to this intimate knowledge of God… “Let us press on to know the Lord.” Hosea 6:3. But intimacy with God must be founded upon right and true knowledge of God, not the false images of who He is offered us by the world by our own imaginations. Joins us as we explore the attributes of our God!
March 4-April 29 (seven weeks)
Know Why You Believe
Patrick Curles | Trinity Hall
Do Christians have good answers for the really tough questions? Yes! This study will consider some of the most common objections to the truths of the Christian faith: Has science disproved the existence of God? Will non-Christians who never hear of Christ go to hell? Is it narrow-minded and bigoted to believe Christ is the only way to God? Why do people need God when life is going smoothly? Isn’t Christianity just a crutch for people who can’t handle life’s pressures? Is heaven real or just “pie in the sky”? Do Christians have a good answer to evil and suffering? How does the church explain all its hypocrites? These questions deserve more than pat answers and proof texts. Join us as we seek to answer these questions forthrightly, cogently, and thoroughly.
The Silent Years (The Times Between Testaments)
Deb Freeman | Room 202
Suppose someone told you that the 400 years between the publication of the King James Bible (1611) and today were inconsequential. After all, nothing of importance happened during that time.
We make the same mistake in glossing over 400 years between Malachi and Matthew: The fall of the Persian Empire, the rise of Alexander the Great and the sundering of his empire, the ongoing wars between Syria and Egypt, with Israel caught in the middle, the attempt to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth by the Syrian king, the rise of the first king in Israel in 400 years, the fall of the kingdom, the intrigues between two high priestly clans in their bids for power, the arrival of the Romans and their wars with the Parthians, and the rise of the numerous Jewish sects in Palestine. But then, “nothing really happened, right?”
Finding God in My Loneliness by Lydia Brownback
Kathleen Champion, Lynn Henry, Sarah Barry Spooner | Room 203
Young or old, single or married – at some point in life – we’re all confronted with loneliness. We try to fill the void or change our circumstances so we no longer feel the pain. But what if our pangs of loneliness are meant to point us to something greater? Nancy Guthrie wrote, “I have a great marriage and lots of good friends and a great church family, and yet I often feel lonely. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything on loneliness that seemed to get to the heart of it, or applied any real wisdom to it until Finding God in My Loneliness. Instead of presenting a merely psychological, social, or practical answer, Lydia Brownback provides a profoundly biblical answer to the loneliness we feel at all times, walking readers through the Biblical story and ably demonstrating how God works in and through loneliness in the lives of those He calls His own.
The Best Small Group Ever
A Practical Guide to Culture
Chapman/Garrett/Thompson | Room 102
Small groups are a wonderful resource to help you grow in your Christian faith and Midweek is a perfect time for them.
If you are already in a small group and want to meet during this time, then we encourage you to do so. If you would like to be in a group (men’s, women’s or couples), let us know and we will help you find a group that is right for you.
