Brand New Website

I am super excited to announce the launch of our new website for Trinity Church. Go here to check it out and even send an evite to our Christmas eve service here.

Looking for a last minute gift....

Every Christmas, billions of dollars are spent on gifts for the people we love and those we feel like we should buy a present for. Often these gifts are things that the people really don't even want or need. We even will include a gift receipt because we know so many people will return what we bought. So what if what we purchased for people something that would benefit someone else. Here are a few ideas for last minute gifts:

Bead for Life : BeadforLife eradicates extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between impoverished Africans and concerned world citizens. Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper into beautiful beads. Women in Northern Uganda gather shea nuts and press them into shea butter for cosmetics and soaps.

Vive Clothing :With enough negative forces in the world, why compartmentalize the positives? VIVE began with the belief that business can be done in a fashion that promotes positive change in people, transforming our communities and altering our world. At a certain age sharing is pounded into a persons head, and at a certain age he or she is allowed to forget it . . . at VIVE we have grasped hold of this concept by letting go: percentages of all proceeds will be given to help sustain non-profit organizations. Whether its creating, playing, or merely expressing yourself, everything we do can have just cause. : When you treat your family and friends to a, CamelBak bottle, you'll also be giving a life-changing gift to someone in need.
  • The bottles are a limited edition design, environmentally friendly and great holiday gifts.
  • And 100% of the profits go directly to support nearly a billion people in the world who lack clean water.

Give just one bottle and you help a child get clean, safe water. Give more and you change even more lives - forever. The need has never been greater and you can make a real difference simply by shopping now.

World Vision Gift : Brighten the future for a child in need by buying them a gift: a goat, 2 chickens, ducks, medicine or even a soccer ball. Let someone know that you purchased this gift in their name.

Freeset Bags : Freeset exists specifically to provide freedom for women from the sex trade, women who were forced into prostitution by trafficking or poverty.

No Gathering

Reminder that there is no Gathering on December 22nd or the 29th. Have a great time celebrating Christmas.

The Gathering is Coming Back

It's been an amazing summer: the JH students embraced St. Louis and the HS students embraced Port Arthur, Texas, a lot of students had a great time at summer camp, we enjoyed the 100 ft slip and slide and getting messy with shaving cream and obviously having our baby boy was the best part! This last month has been great as we have been abiding (John 15) in Jesus and taking a break from DOING things. However, I am super excited for theGathering to start back up next Wednesday, September 1st. Come be a part of theGathering as we LAUNCH into the new school year. JH Gathering from 6:30 to 8:00 and HS Gathering from 7:30 to 9:00.

LIFE.GROUPS for JH students start on September 1st also and will meet from 8:00-8:30 on Wednesday nights after theGathering and HS LG will be on Monday nights from 7:00-8:30 at my house.

It Begins Today

Today begins an important time in the life of a follower of Jesus. It is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the season of lent. It is 40 days, not counting Sundays, to prepare oneself for Easter and the celebration of what Jesus' sacrifice means to you and me. There will be an Ash Wednesday service tonight at 7 pm at trinity church. Therefore there will be no normal JH Gathering, but you are invited to join the Ash Wednesday service. JH lifeGROUPS will still happen. The HS Gathering will still happen after the special service. I pray that you will not rush through the next 40 days, but allow Him to use this time to speak to you.

A couple of other options for the Lent season:

Stop Doing/Start Doing: Many people fast something during lent (I am giving up all food other than at meal snacking for me!) What can you give up: caffeine, tv, facebook, junk food? Also...Start doing something for other people. We have dedicated fridays for that! Pay for the person's coffee behind you at Starbucks, give flowers to an elderly person, bake cookies for you neighbor.

Receive a daily Text: Follow stltrinity on twitter by sending 'follow stltrinity' to 40404

Read a blog post: Throughout the lent season our lead pastor Scott Marshall ( and I ( will be blogging at I would encourage you to come join the conversation.

Even if it is a few days into the lent season, you can still be a part of what God is trying to do. Start today!

The Power of Sex-Helping Students Understand God's Plan for Sex

There are not many things in our culture that are more powerful than sex. It sells, it corrupts, it causes people to lie, it binds, and it can even destroy. However, God created Sex to be powerful in another way. A way that connects and unites.

I believe as a parent it is your job to teach them on this subject, likewise, I believe it is my job to partner with you and teach them the truth as well.

Starting February 3rd we will begin our series called “The Power of SEX.” The series will end on March 3rd. We will be looking at God’s Plan for sex and how to follow it. (No JH Gathering on February 17th due to our Ash Wednesday Service. JH students are welcome to join us at 7 pm in the Sactuary and then attend lifeGROUPS at 8 pm)

All sessions will be recorded and I am available to talk with you if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks ahead of time for the opportunity to partner with you on such an important subject.
