The elders have been informed that there has been a spike in COVID-19 cases in Allen County within the last 48 hours. In order to avoid contributing to the problem, we’re going to do a livestream only service for tomorrow — Sunday, May 17.
Our hope is to resume our regular service again next week, Lord willing. Hopefully, we’ll have a clearer picture of the situation by then.
We’re striving to make well-informed decisions based on the best information available, for the good of Trinity and our neighbors. If you have any questions or concerns at all, please let us know.
What does the Apostle Peter mean by “the day of the Lord”? It’s a pressing question because the answer helps us determine what kind of people we should be. Pastor Nate Harlan continues his series on 2 Peter.
Thanks be to God, per Governor Holcomb’s address on Friday, May 1, we will be resuming worship at Trinity on Sunday, May 10. We also will be observing the precautions recommended by our government within our gathering.
These health precautions are not being imposed upon us by the state. Our government has offered them only as recommendations, not as commands. So Trinity is observing them on the authority of the elders, not the state, because we believe that it is prudent to do so. Thus, in complying with these precautions, you are submitting to the elders, not the state.
The elders and deacons will continue to regularly meet and assess the situation in the mean time. If you have any questions or concerns at all, please do not hesitate to contact the elders.
For those of you who might prefer to remain home for health reasons, please feel free to do so. We only ask that you would inform the elders of your intent to do so. If your health is compromised, we strongly recommend that you remain at home. Our hope is to continue live-streaming the service from Trinity so those at home may participate in worship with the rest of us.
The elders have appreciated your patience during this strange time. The Lord has humbled us and is now restoring our regular worship, in His great mercy. Those whom Christ loves, He disciplines, so let us be zealous and repent.
False teachers distort the gospel by saying freedom in Christ means freedom to gratify sinful desires. But true freedom means being truly free to be faithful to Christ rather than to be enslved to sin. Pastor Nate Harlan continues his series on 2 Peter.
False doctrine always originates with false teachers. False teachers all share two characteristics: They are puffed up with knowledge yet are easily deceived. Hear Pastor Nate Harlan preach on this section of 2 Peter that helps us avoid falling under the sway of false teachers.

Typically, we are tempted to believe our wealth, our health, and our lives are unshakable. But in the face of global uncertainty, Pastor Nate Harlan reminds us that God is our only true refuge. Nothing can separate us from God’s love.
