  • What would it look like for Trinity Mennonite as a church to actively prioritize the needs of those currently outside the community of faith?  What do these people need?  What might we as a community be called to sacrifice so that they can be drawn into the family?
  • In Luke 4:18-19 Jesus sums up his own mission, the reason he came to the world.  This is the same mission he passes on to his followers and empowers them by his Spirit to keep carrying out.  How are you personally working to participate in this mission?
