This Study Guide is designed to accompany the Sunday teaching series during August 2014.

It looks at some of the smaller letters found at the end of the New Testament. They are perhaps little read and poorly known, but are just as much Holy Scripture as the better-known books.

The guide is available in PDF, ePUB (Kobo and other eReaders) and MOBI (Amazon Kindle) formats.

In May this year we will embark on an eleven week teaching series in Paul's letter to the Ephesians. 

It is our hope, through the study and teaching of this section of God's word, that Christians and those exploring the claims of Jesus alike might come to better understand the eternal purposes of God in Christ. 

You are most welcome to join us for this teaching series, which will commence on Sunday May 10. You can access the Bible study guide that goes along with this series here

On Sunday April 12 the TMB Leadership Team gave their quarterly finance update during our service, you can read a copy of their report below.


FINANCE UPDATE - APRIL 2015
 
On the front cover of today’s leaflet, Clayton has written some reasons why we shouldn’t give and I hope that you can spend a moment or two at some stage considering those words. As a church we want to be really up-front and transparent with how we handle money and how money gets spent. Over the last few weeks on the back of the leaflet we have been giving you regular updates on what we are giving compared to our current budget. You would have seen that last month we were significantly behind in what we have budgeted for and what was given. In February, the giving of us, the church at TMB was only $13,799. The follows from January which was $21,300. As a leadership team we are concerned about this discrepancy.
 
Our budget for congregational giving is $27,199 a month. That’s not a figure that was arrived at randomly, rather that’s a recognition of our pledging process last year in which we as a church committed to giving that amount as part of our response to God’s grace towards us in Christ. We recognised that the Bible teaches us that it’s a responsibility, an obligation on all Christian people to financially support they ministry of which we are beneficiaries and of which we are a part. And so we set in place a pattern of ministry in the light of that pledged amount. $27,199 is what it costs each month to run our programs, to promote the gospel in this region, to care for those in our region and to train and equip all of us who are God’s people here for the ministry and life that God lays before us. So having committed to that unfortunately each month this year our regular giving has been rather less than that amount.
 
If you’re a Christian, if you’re a regular here at Trinity can we ask you to consider your partnership with your brothers and sisters here in this important matter of giving? It is important not only because a lack of finances means we can’t do the ministry that we believe God is leading us into. And not only because not spending money on equipment and resources means we place an unfair burden on ministry leaders and volunteers, who have to either make do with insufficiency or make up the shortfall in addition to the giving they’ve already committed to. But it’s also significant because this issue of giving is, for many, many of us a real barometer of our discipleship and obedience and the degree to which we’re willing  to trust God, and not put our trust in our material resources. If you’d like some more information, come and Clayton, Darren or one of the Leadership Team, and the details for electronic giving are printed on the leaflet each week.
 
Thankyou.
