ALUMNI CELEBRATE GOD'S
The summer evening sky provided
a beautiful backdrop for the Alumni Praise & Worship Saturday, September
6, showing a portion of God's majesty that brought nearly 150 people together
to express their love and gratitude to Him.
"We couldn't have asked for
a better evening; it was perfect for outdoor worship," said Kelly Triezenberg
'02, Trinity's assistant director of alumni relations. "We had a good mix
of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and community residents, and everyone
really enjoyed themselves."
The crowd was invited to
bring food and beverages to enjoy in the Commons. As the orange sun slipped
below the horizon and yielded to a bright moon, the worshipers sang "Trading
My Sorrows," "Power Of Your Love," "My Redeemer Lives," and "Seize The
Day." Curt DeGraff '02, Keith Schemper '02, Carl Swanson '01, Heather (Weidenaar)
Follett '99, Scott Daimid '96, Jeremy Heyboer '98, and Jeff Otto '97 led
the songs, and Rev. Doug Pruim '97, vice president of the alumni board,
spoke about God's faithfulness to the College.
"I hope that we can make
this an annual event," Triezenberg said. "Some of the worship leaders said
how good it was to see and share music with old friends again. Our main
goal is to praise God for all that He's done for the College through its
alumni, and I think the people who attended this first event will have
to news & events
