Trinity Grace Church Plant--Suffield, CT

Thank you so much for your prayer and financial support through 2016.  Trinity Grace Church is continuing to become a reality.  This fall we started our core group gatherings on Sunday evenings. This is a time where we eat, pray, study, and discuss together.  Our discussion revolved around a book by Christian Philosopher James K.A. Smith, “You Are What You Love”.  We want to shape our loves first and foremost around Jesus Christ and his commands.  It is a deep and wonderful book.  We will be studying the Westminster Confession of Faith starting in February so that we are a church shaped by the Word of God. 

My wife and I have been part of a gym (Land Warrior Crossfit) for a year and have built wonderful relationships there. God has given us an amazing opportunity to share the gospel of Christ in an unlikely setting. In the early summer the gym owner (who is not a Christian) asked me if my church would like to start a Bible study or something at the gym. He must have noticed all my studying for ordination exams! Since that conversation, we have partnered with a ministry called Faith Rx'd (It is like Fellowship of Christian Athletes for the Crossfit gym community), and have kicked off this missionary effort in November with a great first meeting. 25 people, many of whom are not Christians, came to the work out and Bible study. God is up to something here in Suffield. December was similar in attendance.  Our next gathering is Friday January 20th.  Lord willing, we will see people come to Christ and join Trinity Grace Church as we move toward beginning worship services in 2017.
