Ezra and Nehemiah: Israel Returns from Exile

Wednesdays at 11:00 AM in the Annex


Contact Mary Lou Roberts to register at mlrobbie@comcast.net. Material by
John MacArthur. Book cost is approximately $8. The people of Israel had been carried away to Babylon, where they lived as exiles, because of
their unfaithfulness to God’s word—but the day came when He called them to return to Jerusalem. Join us as we look at this historical period beginning with the exiles’ first return to Jerusalem and concluding with the rebuilding of the city walls.

Galatians: Now That Faith Has Come

Thursdays at 9:30 AM in the Annex


Contact Lori Hinman at lhinman@trinityjoppa.org to register. Material by Beth Moore. Book cost is $20. Join us for a deep dive into Paul’s captivating letter to the Galatians. Come to know the letter’s original recipients. Study its original context and embrace its timeless relevance. Discover—or perhaps rediscover—what makes the gospel of Jesus Christ revolutionary to those who choose to believe. Find out how everything has changed now that faith has come.

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.

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
