Wellspring of Life

 One of the great misconceptions of the Christian life is that our lives are guided by our intellectual beliefs. In reality, we are guided by our hearts, which act like a well and a compass. The surest way to know the direction of your life is to look, honestly at critically, at your own heart. This series will let us look together and invite us to be shaped into the image of Jesus.

Three Pillars

3 Pillars - Formative Encounter v.2.003.jpeg

Every Body of Believers shares a common call of becoming the Body of Christ with Jesus, Himself, as the head authority.  Every Body of Believers also shares a unique call, particular to time and place.  As we move into a new chapter in the life of our church, building on our existing foundation, we are asking the question of our unique call:  “Who is the unique church God has called us to be?”  This teaching series highlights the 3 Pillars Trinity Grace Church Williamsburg is built on, giving us form and structure: Formative Encounter, Merciful Presence, and Pilgrim Community.

Advent 2016

 Advent takes us back and brings us forward. In preparing us to celebrate Christ’s first coming, it places us alongside the ancient prophets, who awaited with aching intensity the fulfilled promise of a messiah, and Joseph and Mary, whose pregnancy made the expectation all the more palpable; it also strengthens our longing for Christ’s second coming, when he will return to fully and finally establish his kingdom on earth. Thus, Advent is a season of waiting and rejoicing.    It is an intentional season waiting, identifying with the longing of previous generations, stirring our own hope. It is also a season of rejoicing, celebrating the revelation of Jesus reconciling us to God.  The birth of Jesus was announced by a host of angels making the declaration,  “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”   During Advent particularly, we join that declaration.
