UNITE! 2018 - A Youth Retreat

Even though it falls at the end of the year UNITE 2018 is bound to be one of the highlights of your year! On December 27th - 30th, Trinity youth will converge upon Tall Timber Camp outside Leavenworth for fun-filled days and worshipful nights. Participants will explore the ways to listen for, engage in, and act upon God’s call for their lives. This year we are excited to invite Paul Patu as our speaker. Paul has done Urban Ministry in Seattle for over a decade and brings a wealth of knowledge and experiences to share with us throughout the retreat.

This remarkably diverse retreat includes a mosaic of people, from churches and church-based organizations across Western Washington. This diversity allows for a remarkable new dimension in small group discussions, offering unique insights into the varied lives of the youth.

And then there's SNOW! Snow fort competitions, cross-country skiing, Foosball, and group games saw the whole camp running, dancing, and gesticulating in all sorts of ways.

Transformational Presence Month: Kevin Glackin-Coley

Since 2011, Trinity has set aside the month of October to invite guest preachers from the community to focus on our commitment to live out this calling here, in this place, together. “Transformational Presence” is a term that we use to describe how we seek to be an authentic faith community whose presence not only brings relief and compassion to those in crisis, but hope through our efforts around education, advocacy, and authentic relationships with our neighbors.  In all that we do as a community, as we learn from one another and step into each other's’ lives, our prayer is that mutual transformation takes place among us all.

For our final week of Transformational Presence month, 2018, we will hear from Kevin Glackin-Coley, Executive Director of St. Leo’s Food Connection.

Special thanks to Kevin and all the speakers who participated in this special month of Trinity’s year.
