Dear Trinity family and friends,

I’ll never forget when I traveled to Israel in 1989. I traveled to the source of the Jordan River, in that portion of Israel that is named after one of the twelve tribes of Israel, Dan. There was water springing up from the earth and flowing downward, south, into the Sea of Galilee. But it didn’t stop there. The water continues to flow through the fresh water of the Sea of Galilee as the Jordan, a much bigger stream. Many miles further south, it continues into the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea received the water and there it stopped. So the waters of the Jordan die at the Dead Sea, where no sea life can live. I was told that the Dead Sea is 7 times saltier than the ocean and twice as salty as the Great Salt Lake in Utah. Yes, nothing can live in that water!

From the moment the Jordan begins its journey some important items are known–first, two great bodies of water are fed by the source of the Jordan River (:) the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. However, each body is very different. The Sea of Galilee gives away its water into the continuing Jordan River as it flows south while the Dead Sea only receives the water of the Jordan. Without the source of the Jordan, neither body of water exists. The Sea of Galilee contains living fish life (remember Jesus’ first disciples were fishermen, at the Sea of Galilee) while the Dead Sea has no living creatures at all.

What I learned was this principle of life–when you give yourself away (like the Sea of Galilee), God always replenishes your life and fills it with life and good things! When we only take, and keep everything (like the Dead Sea), we eventually die. 
Certainly, God is our Source, and giving is living. Great miracles happen in life when we give ourselves away!
1. Prayer Service, tonight, Thursday, 7pmchurch sanctuary
2. Trinity 101 via Zoom, October 7th
3. This week in worship


1. Prayer Service, tonight, Thursday, 7pmchurch sanctuary
These monthly prayer services are times for listening to God, celebration, and seeking the Lord. Be with us tonight as we gather for prayer. Missi Anderson, who is working on becoming a commissioned minister in our church, will lead the service tonight. 
2. Trinity 101 via Zoom
In October we’ll offer our first ever ONLINE Trinity 101, using Zoom. It will be a four-week series held Wednesday evenings, beginning October 7th, via Zoom. I’ll be sharing with you more about the church’s story and vision and we’ll look at what it means to be a follower of Jesus. If at the end of the 4 weeks you would like to formally join the church and make Trinity your church family, you’ll be able to do so. We’ve never done this digitally before but we’re excited about it. We are not seeking to take members away from other churches – if you are actively involved in another church, know that you can worship with us anytime without joining. But if you feel that you would like to formally join Trinity, this is your opportunity. Questions? Email me back or share this information with someone you know who desires to join Trinity, virtually.


3. This week in worship
We’ve been in person since June 7, and many people wanted to come back even sooner. If you haven’t been back to trinity, you are welcome! 
I would like to ask you a question? Why do you attend church and worship! is it because maybe you had a rough week. Maybe you’re hurting. Maybe you came to be entertained. Maybe you came to hear a good joke by the preacher. Well, the primary #1 reason that we come to church and worship is to worship God! And our Lord Jesus Christ! And the Holy Spirit! We’ve come to experience God’s presence and acknowledge God’s authority in our lives. Some people tell me they come to a church service to hear traditional music. Some wanted great experience with God. But many times, I’ve heard this phrase through the years, by people who do not understand what worship is about. They say, “I didn’t get anything out of it!” Did you come to get something out of it? Or did you come to give your worship to God. That’s a big difference! So why do we need the church? 
The book of Revelation is a book about the worship of the Lord. Be with us Sunday as we unpack the real meaning of this amazing and outstanding book of the Bible. Read Revelation 4:1-11 to prepare for worship.


That’s it for today – I want you to know, once more, how proud I am to be your pastor at Trinity!
In Christ’s love,
Pastor Cletus
