We’re headed to Harvesters on Tues August 26 from 1-3 pm. Come join us as we reach out to the Topeka community in need! Sign up sheet is in the church lobby.

WOW! Five Cents To A Quarter A Piece?!

Needed: supplies for Sunday school classes and church office. Right now many stores have school supplies for 5 to 25 cents an item, usually with a limit on how many you can purchase. If many of us purchase at these amazing prices, we’ll have the supplies we need. If you can donate, we need: 1" 3 ring binders, painters tape, binder clips, scotch tape, masking tape, construction paper, sharpies, name badges, scissors, pens, etc. Leave donated items in the CE wooden box in the lobby.

Adult Sunday Classes

Wow! Our Sunday school classes are growing. Last week 73 people attended Sunday school (over 40% of the people who attended worship!). We have two incredible adult classes to attend this week:
1) Want to improve your Biblical knowledge? In Fellowship Hall, join the Bible Study Class taught by Judy Messenger and studying 2nd Corinthians. No prior study is required - just a desire to know God’s word better.
2) "Why Nobody Wants to Go to Church Anymore", facilitated by David Ross. In this new book, Thom and Joani Schultz expose the church practices that are driving people away and thwarting spiritual growth. Yet they also reveal what can bring them back. Come join us in room 9 for an examination of a most pressing issue for Trinity through Sept 14.

Other Study Opportunities

BROWN BAG BIBLE STUDY - Join us at noon on Mondays - bring a lunch, your Bible and a friend and come to the Parlor for an hour of working through the Bible. Currently, the class is looking at the Pastoral Letters beginning with the book of James. You don’t have to bring a lunch, but the discussion and study is fun and informative, led by Pastor Alex. Everyone is welcome.

MEN’S BIBLE STUDY - Calling all men! Tuesday mornings we meet for a donut and coffee while we wrestle with the word of God. Come and share the ’Hole’ truth as we study the Psalms and get to know each other. Come and be ’Filled’ by the Spirit as you start your day. 7 am (yes in the morning) at the Baker’s Dozen Donut Shop on 6th Street. Come and ’Glaze’ at the rising sun over a cup of java.
