Jesus gave his followers a mission: “Go make disciples of all nations.” At Trinity Church it is our desire to fulfill our part of this mission and not just “do church” but invite people to become disciples of Jesus and then help them grow to the point where they can disciple others. Though discipleship encompasses everything we do from worshipping together, to communicating with God, sharing the good news of Jesus, and serving those in need; all this flows from learning and training with other followers of Jesus. We understand that folks are at different points in their pursuit of God as well as dealing with the challenges of life. It is in this vein that we have various kinds of Discipleship Training.

HEBREWS PART 2: Women’s Group, Wednesdays, 10:00am, Rm. 206 (Starts January 17) 

Why Study Hebrews? In Hebrews we meet Jesus face to face in all of His glory, yet find great intimacy, grace and encouragement in our relationship with Him. We are challenged to boldly walk with Him in faith and by that same faith, enter His rest. In our time together we dig into God’s Word and share through group discussion. We encourage each other through fellowship and praying for each other.  New and returning participants are welcome! For questions or to reserve space and materials contact Bonnie Wilburn at bjwilburn@hotmail.com or Sue Thayer at thayers@comcast.net if you have any questions

PRAYER-AN ADVENTURE WITH GOD: Women’s Group, Wednesdays 6:30pm, Rm. 206 (Starts January 24)

Prayer is one way God involves us in his plans, and so is part of being remade in his likeness. It deepens our relationship with him and changes lives. Yet, many of us feel our prayer life is lacking. In this class, we'll learn from biblical examples, such as Mary, Abraham, Moses and Daniel, and put what we’ve learned into practice. Contact Phyllis Castren with questions or about purchasing a study guide. pacastren@comcast.net

The book our group will be using is Prayer: An Adventure with God by David Healey. It is part of the Life Guide series Contact Phyllis Castren at pacastren@comcast.net with any questions

Mathilda Ave., Sunnyvale.  For more information contact Jim Asselin at jim@svtrinity.org
