Jesus said to [Martha, just after her brother’s death], “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.” John 11:25 ESV

Mark your calendars for our church-wide picnic to be held on Sunday, April 24th starting at 11:30 am. We’ll have food from the Holy Smokers, table games and outdoor activities for the whole family at LEAH’s Downtown Academy’s field! We’ll have a big tent, so the picnic will occur rain or shine.

Dear Members and Friends of Trinity Downtown:

Spring is finally here. Trees are putting out their leaves (and shedding pollen!), flowers are blooming, the grass is turning green, and the weather is getting warm. Pickup trucks representing every nursery and landscaping company in the area fill our neighborhood streets as workers add new plants and strip away those that didn’t survive the winter. Spring’s renewal is in the air.

It happens every year, like clockwork. But on those cold-ish days in January and February, the head-knowledge of spring’s imminent arrival is scoffed at by the bare trees and dormant lawns. In our hearts, it is hard to feel that Spring is just around the corner. The naked trees and sleeping lawns mock our memories.

The same thing can happen to our hearts. When we look around and see war(s) abroad, political division at home, economic distress and inflation, our head-knowledge that Jesus is alive and “on the loose” (as Pastor Finke says) can be muted.  Reality, it sometimes seems, mocks our faith.

That’s why we need to get a fresh glimpse of what the resurrected Jesus is busy doing in our world. Redeeming, comforting, directing, and healing. In short, saving us. And boy, do we all need a Savior.

God’s love for us is on full display this Holy Week at Trinity Downtown as we recognize his sacrifice and celebrate his resurrection. Come join us as we contemplate the depth of his sacrifice at our Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services at noon and 6:30 pm. Come renew your faith in Jesus’ resurrection with us on Sunday at 9:00 and 11:15 am.

Come, and invite a friend who might need their faith renewed.
