Our Church Life

Next ​​​Trinity News deadline is Wednesday, October 19. Please have all articles to the church office by 10:00 am. 

Pictorial Directory Settings - Be sure to follow the link on this page to sign up to get your picture taken for the new church pictorial directory. You may also stop in the Fellowship Hall following worship where someone will be available to assist you or call the church office.

Trinity Men - You are invited to join Jim McClymond on Tuesday mornings at 8:00 am at Crouse Café for devotion and breakfast. 
Star Gazing - Dave & Jana Tanner will be hosting an evening of star gazing on Saturday, October 1. We are located between Ackworth and Sandyville at 20551 Hwy 92 on the north side of the road. There will be a sign at the end of the driveway. Please arrive around 6:00 pm for fellowship and briefing. It will take time to set up and we will be able to see better if our eyes adjust as the sun sets. There will be a large tarp spread on the ground for people to lie down on. Feel free to bring a cooler, snacks or lounge chairs. Gary Morrison, a long time Indianola resident and star gazing expert, has a passion for the stars which gives him the ability to share biblical stories of the constellations as well as many stories of mythology and folk lore. Obviously we are dependent on the weather. If the weather is nice but cloudy, there will be a bonfire so everyone should bring a chair. If it rains, we will try for another time.

International Peacemaker Visit - The Mission Team invites everyone to the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, October 9 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm for a presentation by International Peacemaker, Dr. Tamar Wasoian. Dr. Wasoian is an Armenian educator and theologian from Syria.  Armenian history, communal traditions, faith and identity are at the core of her fields of interest and expertise. She is on the steering committee of Syria Lebanon Partnership Network of the PC (USA) and the Middle East Task Force. She will speak about the Armenian presence in Syria, the haunting memories of a past unacknowledged Genocide and the current survival story of her people in Syria. Dr. Wasoian currently lives in Chicago, where she teaches at McCormick Theological Seminary and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, the institutions where she earned her MTS and Doctoral degree. This visit to the DM Presbytery is sponsored by the Compassion, Peace and Justice Task Force.               

Trinity’s Green Team invites you to hear Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell, speak on “Climate Change and National Security” on Wednesday, October 12.
