Information about the conference:
The Empowered to Connect Conference features practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. It features Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross to help bring attachment and connection in families. The content is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care, and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, and therapists.
Discovering Trinity is a two hour introduction to Trinity Fellowship for anyone who is new to our church, investigating our church or just interested in more information. It is taught by the elders of Trinity Fellowship and is a great chance to get to know them, and for them to get to know you.
The first “Discovering Trinity” in a long time will be held on Sunday, March 10th from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM and will include a lunch provided by the elders. Please call the church office (281-482-0577) and tell Iva that you’re coming, or speak to one of the current elders (Bob DeGray, Todd Cobbs, Frank Kittle, Joseph Norris, Doug Rask or Dan Wales).
The topics covered in Discovering Trinity include:
Trinity’s Vision and Purpose
What we believe (a quick overview of the Evangelical Free Church of America statement of faith)
How we’re structured (Elders and the General Board, Trinity’s constitution)
What is the Evangelical Free Church of America?
Trinity’s ministries and opportunities.
How to get involved (especially, who to talk to, who can we connect you to?)
How to become a member
Each of these short segments will include a time for questions, but the whole seminar will take less than two hours, including lunch. It’s a valuable time and we hope you’ll come.

The C. E. Committee has planned to have a simple orientation for all our children’s ministry volunteers for the spring. We will be meeting at 1:30 after church on January 6th. This is to familiarize everyone with our new child check-in /out system, our policies as a church for child, teacher and legal safety, and our volunteer job descriptions. We hope that this will help things to go smoothly in the spring as everyone will know what the plan is, and what they are responsible for. We will also be having a prayer time over our teachers and children here at Trinity.
We will be having volunteer interviews on January 4th and 8th, please contact Bitsy Unruh to sign up for one of these times if you will be teaching in the fall.
