Today at Trinity

SCHOOL OF DISCIPLESHIP: 10:05 am - Lounge: Storied Waters: Hunger Panel: Trinity members will share their experiences in the food industry/ hunger volunteer work. Come to hear how their faith has affected their service. God’s Work, Our Voices – Life Overflowing We will gather in the fellowship hall at 10:05 am today to listen to Dr. Mark Allan Powell speak to us about God’s work and our voices in stewardship. The first session will focus on our “Hearts and Treasure;” the second session on our “Duty and Delight.” We will watch the video and have a short discussion following. All are welcome as we grow in our giving to God! What’s that noise?? It’s the change in your pockets, under the couch cushions, found on the sidewalk, and in your piggy banks! It’s the coins (or dollar bills!) that clang and clatter when they hit a metal can. It’s the Noisy Offering we will collect for churches in Minot! Today our kids will bring an offering to Sunday School and extra coins to worship as we gather money to support other kids whose church was damaged by the floods in Minot. And adults are encouraged to bring their loose change as well and give to our kids so they can make some noise! God’s Work and Our Voices! Trinity’s Boy Scout Troop #637 is hosting coffee and conversation today at 10:05 in the CLC. Don’t forget to put your coffee/cookie money in the baskets provided to help support them. The 20th Annual Church Bazaar continues today from Noon - 5 pm @ Moorhead Center Mall.

Stewardship Sunday Reason for giving: Act out of love, not out of guilt. Love is the greatest force in all of creation. It is the power that surpasses all others in breadth, depth and height. Nothing compares to it, for it expresses the very essence of the one who spoke everything into existence: “God is love” says 1 John 4:16. Love is the reason God gave his one and only Son: “God demonstrated his own love for us in this: While we are still sinners, Christ died for us.” Love is the fruit of the Spirit. Love is the greatest of the virtues. Love is the hinge of the Scriptures. Considering all these truths, why should we give? Above all, because of love - a love for God, a love for his work, and a love for his kingdom to come and his will to be done. -Revolutionary Generosity by Kirk Nowery. Pledge to our missionaries, Phil and Lou-Marie Knutson: Please remember to support the work of our missionaries, the Knutsons, with a generous gift during the month of November. Indicate on the memo line of your check that it is for global mission or use

Christ is able to make us one, at the table he sets the tone, teaching people to live to bless, love in word and in deed express.
