Trinity Goes to the Movies! The Case for Christ

We have reserved an entire theater on Wednesday, April 26th at 7:00 p.m. at Marcus Theaters in Addison to see The Case for Christ.   

THE CASE FOR CHRIST is the inside story of how Chicago Tribune journalist Lee Strobel set out to disprove Christianity when his wife, Leslie, became a Christian and challenged Lee’s atheist beliefs. THECASE FOR CHRIST is a terrific drama reminiscent of ALL THEPRESIDENT’S MEN with excellent acting. It also brilliantly lays out the facts confirming Jesus Christ’s resurrection, but contains some tense moments requiring caution for younger children.

The tickets are $10 each.  We only have 51 seats available so it is first come first served.  Bring a friend!

Please click here to reserve your tickets and make your payment.

Feel free to contact me at 630-259-8467 or carole.arco@trinityroselle.com

A Wonderful Holy Week Surprise

As many of you are aware, for the past year + our family has been struggling with battling cancer. My wife, specifically is undergoing the battle, and the rest of us try to keep our new normal, well, normal.

After coming home this past week from yet another test, we were happily surprised by a wonderful pink ribbon adorned with pink roses. It was placed quietly in front of our home by a child of God who came and went quickly. We don’t know who, but we strongly suspect this came from one of our brothers or sisters at Trinity.

Whoever it was, knowing this gesture came from within a large group of folks who continue to lift us in prayer through struggles, makes the days a bit easier. We just wanted to share this little gesture of love as an example of what we all strive to do, Love God, Love Others and Serve the World.

On behalf of a family who has been touched by this Love, Thank you.

Holy Week

Holy week is a time of reflection and worship for us.  It began with Palm Sunday. Maundy Thursday  we will remember the institution of the Lord’s Supper.  The name Maundy Thursday is from a Latin word that means command.  At the foot washing ceremony at the last Supper Jesus spoke of the “new commandment”  to love one another as He has loved us as well as commanded us to participate in the Lord’s supper.

Good Friday is the time when we reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus.  The paraments are changed to black and the service Friday night is very solemn  with everyone leaving in silence at the end of worship.  During this service the chancel is “stripped” of adornment and the altar is washed. The stripping of the altar and chancel area reminds us of the humiliation of Jesus at the hands of the Roman soldiers. 

Then Easter!   Easter finishes off a six-week period of anticipation and preparation and the “alleluias” come back into our liturgy and worship. White paraments to up and flowers abound in the chancel.  Easter is the time when we shout:  Alleluia! He has risen! He has risen indeed! Alleluia!
