This spring, as we observe the passing of Lent and then celebrate Easter, we will be using some themes that come out in the prophecies and life of the prophet Jeremiah. Jeremiah was called by God to pronounce condemnation on Judah for all her unfaithfulness to God and to speak words of devastating judgment upon that nation. The whole process was very painful for him. He greatly lamented both the sins of his people and also the just judgment of God that would be brought upon them, and that even he himself would have to experience in very personal ways. But as with all biblical prophecy, the real focal point is Jesus Christ. It is Christ who will end up taking the ultimate and only truly satisfactory punishment upon himself, and Christ who will overcome evil with good and give us all glorious future hope.
What is Trinity Christian Reformed Church? A better question to ask would be, “Who is Trinity Christian Reformed Church?” because a church should not just be seen an inanimate object; but rather, if it is fulfilling its God-given purpose, it is both alive and life-giving. At Trinity CRC, our mission is to be a community of servants called by God to become fully devoted followers of Christ, committed to knowing God, growing relationships, showing God’s love, and sowing God’s Word. In terms of where we fall theologically, we are of the Reformed/Presbyterian tradition and part of the Christian Reformed denomination.
For those who have grown up in Western Michigan we only really know the Detroit area by the numbers, interstate numbers that is. But now we are committed to getting to know and love the brothers and sisters at Rosedale Park Baptist Church, just a few blocks from exit 182 on I-96. There in this community we have found a home away from home and find that we have mutually grown in so many ways, the most important being that the Kingdom of God is so much bigger than race, politics, economics, culture and prejudices.
