Resurrection Worship, April 4
Sunday at 10:30am
Facebook Live worship online
tune in around 11:00am, Sunday
Dear Trinity family and friends,
Did you know that more people search online for churches at Easter and Christmas than any other time of the year? Easter is this Sunday, April 4 — a perfect time to invite someone to join you at church. They might just say YES!
Easter defies all understanding! Even the first followers of Jesus could not comprehend how it could happen. Mark’s Gospel gives us the empty tomb. Matthew raises the issue of bribery and false testimony on the part of the religious leaders. Luke describes the doubts of the disciples.
In John’s Gospel, the resurrection is a matter of a personal encounter with Jesus. Grief-stricken at finding no body, Mary Magdalene confronts a gardener,
“If you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him.”
Overcome by grief, she does not recognize Jesus, until he simply calls her name,
Do you hear Jesus calling your name today?
In response to the Risen Lord, Mary wants to hug him, but Jesus bids her,
“do not hold on to me!”
Perhaps, this had to do with the nature of his resurrected body; but, there may be a deeper truth. Perhaps, Jesus is saying to her and us,
“From now on, you can see me everywhere. My spirit will be present whenever people seek healing and truth in My Name!”
When Jesus calls our name, we are born again. We come to life and we follow him day by day.
Where is the resurrection in your life? Where are you hearing Jesus call you by name? Let the surprising resurrection power of Jesus burst forth in your life today!
Here’s what’s happening this week at Trinity…
1. Good Friday, 6PM
2. Lenten Soup Sale
3. Men’s Breakfast, Saturday, 9am-12noon
4. This week in worship
1. Good Friday Worship, at Trinity, 6pm
To mark the suffering and death of Jesus, we invite all who are a part of our church to join us for Good Friday. Friday evening, we will meditate and reflect upon the crucifixion of Christ. We invite you to pray for your fellow church members as you come. You will be blessed as you participate in this time of remembering Christ’s suffering on the cross.
2. Lenten Soup Sales
Trinity United Christian Church has been holding Soup Sales on Fridays during the 2021 Lenten Season. There have been a variety of cream and broth soups available over the past weeks.
The 3 soups available this week are:
Regular Red Chili

3. Men’s Breakfast, Saturday, 9am-12noon
The men of Trinity will meet this Saturday for a time of fellowship, food, and the opportunity to testify in their faith…in the café. See Rich Schachte for more information, 412-303-3413
4. This week in worship
Our scriptures during this Lenten season have been in the Gospel of Mark. On Sunday, the reading ends in Mark 16 with verse 8…”and they left afraid…”
It is the only Gospel that ends this way…”and they left afraid…”
My message this weekend is titled, “From Fear to Hope!” I invite you to join us on Easter morning as we will be challenged to face our fears. I will also have a Resurrection Action Plan that you can implement to deal with fear in life. Be with us as we move forward in life, not backward into fear. To prepare read Mark 16:1-8 for the worship on Sunday.
I’m grateful and proud of you, Trinity.
I look forward to “seeing” you in worship this resurrection weekend!
