Sharing Christ in word and deed

In light of reducing Covid numbers in consulation with our medical consultants, council has made the decision to step down slightly on mask requirements.  Masks are now STRONGLY RECOMMENDED with the left section masks and social distancing required.   These changes become effective Sunday, Nov 21.

Happy New Year!  Welcome to the season of Advent.  As a counterpoint to the holiday rush we slow down and reflect on the coming of Jesus.  We practice waiting; waiting for Jesus.  Remembering Jesus coming at Christmas.  Waiting for Jesus to come at the end of time.  And especially watching for Jesus coming into our lives each moment.  We, children of God, bring God’s kingdom on earth through joining God in healing our broken world.  Come, Lord Jesus, come!

Principles

Using the information from conversations with the congregation about our assets, wows and needs, the renewal team discerned these principles for Trinity moving forward.  We will use these principles as lens through which to evaluate ministry opportunities moving forward.

  • Passionate about God
  • Feeding the hungry physically, emotionally and spiritually
  • Open, welcoming and friendly
  • Courage to creatively use our gifts in the community

Priorities

The renewal team also identified these current priorities for ministry for Trinity

  • Internal:  Renew and deepen our connection with each other in the family
  • External:  Renew and deepen our connection with our neighbors in the community and continue working with the Food Pantry

A new worship video is added:  Second Sunday in Advent, Dec. 5th

At our core we are passionate about God.  God’s love anchors who we are and compels us to move out in service sharing Christ in word and deed.  Check out the newsletter frequently for opportunities to serve.

Renewal is in the air!

Trinity is renewing with God’s help through the R3 intentional program of renewal.

  • Beginning in Feb 2021, Members of the renewal team will meet with various teams and committees challenging them to find a way for us to connect with one another or our neighbors.  The team will provide tools for planning.
  • Call the office or comment on Facebook each week sharing where you’ve seen God.

Hold onto your hat!  The Holy Spirit is moving at Trinity.

Trinity is moving forward!                                                                                   We now have a Vision AND a Logo.
