Passion Week Events
The high point of the Christian year, and the climax of God’s Big Story is Easter week, when we walk with Jesus through the triumphal entry, the last supper, his betrayal, arrest, unjust sentence, crucifixion, burial – and victorious resurrection. Every year the celebration of Passion week is both deeply the same and intentionally varied. Here are the plans for this year, 2017:
Sunday, April 9th – Palm Sunday celebrated at our regular service time, 10:50 a.m.
We’ll notice how the triumphal entry gives voice to so much of God’s Big Story – both the parts the crowd missed and the parts we sometimes miss.
Thursday, April 13th – Holy Thursday service at the church, 7:00 p.m.
This service will be one of the high points of the week, remembering both the last supper and the crucifixion of Christ. The service will feature powerful videos from Chris Powers, whose art and animations will depict the truth of redemption, paired with some very familiar songs (“What Wondrous Love is This”) and some wonderful new ones (“It is Finished” by Caitelen.) We encourage you to set aside this time and to invite friends and family to come.
Here are a few more stills from “Full of Eyes.”
And here’s a link to one of the videos we’ll use. I don’t want to give it all away, but I do want to give you a little taste of the animation
Sunday, April 16th – Sunrise service (LOCATION CHANGES TO COUNTRYSIDE PARK ON BAY AREA BLVD)
Our annual Easter Sunrise service will be held at 7:00 a.m. at COUNTRYSIDE PARK. Come and share the joy of the resurrection. Who knows, we might even see the sunrise! The service this year will feature a first person account of the ministry and resurrection of Jesus by two disciples who met him on the road to Emmaus.
Due to another church having a sunrise service at Nassau Bay, we will be changing locations. Our new location is Countryside Park, also know as Lynn Gripon Park. It is in League City on Bay Area Blvd. (501 North Bay Area Blvd)
They don’t open the gate until 7 am which is later than we were planning to start, so please do all you can to be there promptly at 7 am. Bring your lawn chairs, mosquito spray (in case), and a blanket (as often it is chilly). When you enter the park you will turn left and follow the road down to the end and we will meet by the water unless it is raining. If it is raining we will meet under the pavilion.
Sunday, April 16th – Continental Breakfast Social, 9:00 a.m.
There will not be a Sunday school class, but we will celebrate the Resurrection together with a continental potluck breakfast. Please bring a continental breakfast item such as a pastry, fruit, kolache, quiche, or muffins to share.
Sunday, April 16th – Easter Service, 10:50 a.m.
We’ll celebrate the resurrection with Worship and the Word and learn that the climax of God’s Big Story is too good. But not too good to be truej.
When Ebola hit West Africa in 2014, Samaritan’s Purse did what God calls all believers to do: serve those in need. The new documentary FACING DARKNESS tells the ministry’s story—and it’s unlike any movie you’ve ever seen. It’s a true story of bravery … compassion … faith. Most of all, this is a story of hope.
The movie will be shown one night, March 30th at Cinemark 18 Webster (and several other theaters). Please e-mail Bob DeGray (email@example.com) to sign up, or sign up on Sunday March 19th or Sunday, March 26th at the church.
Last summer we looked at opportunities for compassionate outreach. Since that time we have settled on six ministries that fit Trinity like a glove, and we are working to continue or expand ministries that help people in need. We’ve created a new area of the website to help people learn about this old/new emphasis of our church. Click here: Trinity Fellowship on Mission, or on the icon above to learn more.
Join us for an evening of “Prayer and Praise” on February 11th at 7pm. Oak Creek Bible Church will be joining us here at Trinity to praise our King. The agenda for the evening is pretty simple-we will worship, we will praise, and we will lay our requests at His feet. Please take advantage of this special time of drawing close to the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Some Scripture for Meditation
Revelation 15:3-4 And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! 4Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Revelation 2:23 and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works.
Revelation 2:4 But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.
Revelation 3:1 “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write: ‘The words of him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. “‘I know your works. You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead.
Revelation 3:14-20 “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. 15“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! 16So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. 17For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. 18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. 19Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
