Red Letter Challenge Churchwide Study

Sundays at 10:05 AM, begins September 18


Contact Pastor Ryan McAllister at rmcallister@trinityjoppa.org to register. Book cost is $10.

Why do the lives of Christians and the rest of the world look the same? What needs to change?
We need to live like Jesus did. The best way to do this is to follow His own words (the red
letters found in many Bibles). For 40 days, we will dig into Jesus’ main principles of BEING,
FORGIVING, SERVING, GIVING AND GOING and challenge ourselves to live like Jesus did. For all resources

and a link to the Zoom meeting, go here!

One Minute After You Die

Tuesdays at 6:30 PM.  Contact Bill Schafer at bschafer@trinityjoppa.org to register.

​While relatives and friends plan your funeral--deciding a casket, a burial plot, and who the pallbearers shall be--you will be more alive than you have ever been!"  But where, asks Dr. Erwin Lutzer, will you be?  What will you see?  Will you see God sitting on his throne, surround by angels and redeemed humanity, or will you realize that you are shrouded in darkness, in a region of unending regret and deprivation?  In this study, Dr. Lutzer opens up what the Bible has to say about death and the life after death, and explodes the myths about "near-death" experiences and reincarnation.  He also explains the choice each of us must make before we die--the choice that determines where we will spend eternity.

Women's Events & Activities

REGISTER FOR OUR 2022 WOMEN’S RETREAT – “BINGE JESUS”


​Join us for our annual women’s retreat at Sandy Cove Christian Retreat Center in North East, MD, Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 2.  Women of all ages are welcome to attend.  Our theme this year will be “Binge Jesus” because it will be based on the videos and lessons of seasons 1 and 2 of the popular TV show “The Chosen.” 
Being chosen by Jesus has beautiful and far-reaching implications—although it says more about the Chooser than the Chosen.  We are loved because He is love.  We are saved because He is merciful.  We belong to the family of God because He chose us.  Because Jesus chooses us, the Bible and all its promises are as true for us today as they were for God’s chosen people.  What does it actually mean to be Chosen?  Our study, “The Chosen,” tells the story of Jesus through the lives and stories of His disciples.  We will dive deeper into the choosing of disciples, get to know the miracles and teachings of Jesus, and learn what it means to be a chosen daughter of God.  Payment is due ASAP!

Click here to get the registration form.  Fill it out completely and return it with the required amount to Mickey Barkuloo.

Small
Groups

Bible study small groups are groups of approximately three to six people that gather to participate in a bible study (whether it's a church-wide study or one that your group picks).  Groups meet in someone's home or at church at a time that's convenient for the members of that particular group.  It's a great way to make friends, get closer to folks here at Trinity, and get support when going through hard times. Groups meet on different days of the week, depending on the schedules of the members.  Some groups are meeting at church or in homes while observing social distancing recommendations.  Some groups are choosing to meet virtually until restrictions are further lifted.  Let's find one that works for you and your preferences.  To get connected to a Bible Study small group, contact Pastor Ryan McAllister at rmcallister@trinityjoppa.org
