This fall, Trinity Church will be exploring the topic of Spiritual Warfare. This is for some a scary topic and for others a very controversial topic, but definitely a topic that deserves our attention. We will seek to learn about spiritual warfare both in a ten week series of messages, and also through an eight-lesson small group video study called The Invisible War, by Chip Ingram. The sermons and the Bible study will have as their primary focus the teachings of Paul from Ephesians 6:10-20. We will dive deep into this passage and learn about the importance of each and every piece of the full armor of God, about Satan and his motives and methods, about living out the victory the we have only and always in Jesus Christ. We are praying that God will reveal himself to us in new and wonderful ways through this study and hope you will participate with us both in our worship services and by attending one of our small group studies.
This summer I am looking forward to doing some switching of gears a bit and studying some larger than life Old Testament characters, people who were great warriors of God -- many who quite certainly unexpectedly found themselves to be warriors of God. Starting on June 28, and continuing throughout the summer, we will look at ten warriors, including one woman! We will start with Joshua and Caleb, then visit some of the judges, and finally end with David. What was it about each of these characters that ultimately made them great warriors for God? What does it mean to be a warrior for the Lord? What can we learn from these warriors? How does their story fit into His Story and ultimately point us to the gospel of Christ? What can we learn about God and about ourselves?
What is Trinity Christian Reformed Church? A better question to ask would be, “Who is Trinity Christian Reformed Church?” because a church should not just be seen an inanimate object; but rather, if it is fulfilling its God-given purpose, it is both alive and life-giving. At Trinity CRC, our mission is to be a community of servants called by God to become fully devoted followers of Christ, committed to knowing God, growing relationships, showing God’s love, and sowing God’s Word. In terms of where we fall theologically, we are of the Reformed/Presbyterian tradition and part of the Christian Reformed denomination.
For those who have grown up in Western Michigan we only really know the Detroit area by the numbers, interstate numbers that is. But now we are committed to getting to know and love the brothers and sisters at Rosedale Park Baptist Church, just a few blocks from exit 182 on I-96. There in this community we have found a home away from home and find that we have mutually grown in so many ways, the most important being that the Kingdom of God is so much bigger than race, politics, economics, culture and prejudices.
