On February 7th, we gathered for our Homecoming Celebration – our first Sunday Gathering back at 1849 Marshall Avenue. The sermon celebrated the reality of Christ being the cornerstone of this local church. He is the foundation of this church, the source of our identity, and the ultimate purpose for our mission.
The day included a Macalester alum playing bagpipes right before the service, which you could hear from blocks away. We gathered with those who consider Trinity City Church their church family, those who were checking us out for the first time, those who are exploring the Christian faith, and many supporters and ministry partners who came to celebrate with us. We sang songs, prayed prayers, read and preached the Scriptures, and communed with Christ and one another at the Lord's Table. Before many of us went back into our neighborhoods, homes, and places of work, we enjoyed Izzy's Ice Cream together – salted caramel, chocolate, and mint chocolate chip.
Above all, we gave glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We gave God glory for his good gifts we enjoyed that day, but more than that, for giving us himself through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
It's good to be home. Ad maiorem Dei gloriam (“for the greater glory of God”).
