When you were standing in front of your family and friends reciting your marriage vows, did you have any idea that marriage would be so complex? It probably didn’t take you long to understand that your spouse is not as much like you as you thought. But figuring them out is more than just an equation. Marriage is more than a science; it’s an art. And like any art form, requires an investment of time, focused study and the right tools. If you need to soften some of the edges in your relationship, or want to brighten the landscape of your marriage, The Art of Marriage is for you. This 2-day marriage event allows you to experience God’s design for marriage from expert teachers and humorous vignettes. You’ll graduate in a few hours, better educated about your marriage, your spouse and yourself. Block out time in your schedule to attend The Art of Marriage, Friday and Saturday, March 18 & 19 at Trinity Christian Reformed Church in Grandville. For more information or to register call or email Trinity Church (457-1630 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
As Trinity goes through this two year Renewal Lab we are asked to be good listeners. The Renewal Lab asks us to listen to each other, to our community, to the Holy Spirit speaking to us, and to God speaking through his Word. As we move into the New Year we will look together at a book of the Bible that deals with many issues that local churches face, the book of 1 Corinthians. The Corinthian Church was very blessed and yet it had a variety of things that Paul needed to address. The members struggled with the roles of men and women, they experienced moral lapses, they had worship wars, they misunderstood some of the fundamentals of the faith, and they struggled with how to live Christian lives in a very pagan culture--not a lot different from any church today. And yet in the center of all this teaching by Paul on these topics comes the most wonderful teaching on love, which Paul says is the most important thing. This will be a great section of Scripture for us at Trinity to spend some time working through to get a better understanding of what God is telling us today to do as His church. In preparation for this series, which begins on January 31, you are encouraged to begin reading 1 Corinthians.
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.
