Love in Christ,
What a wonderful and glorious summer we have had here at Trinity! Our Summer Lunch Program, CITC, and End of Summer Bash have all been great successes as we continue to intentionally focus on being ‘church in the community.’ A special thank you to ALL the volunteers who have so faithfully offered their talents, gifts and time throughout all of these events. God is so good and it takes ALL of us, with our gifts, talents and the offering of our time to be the church.
A lot things begin in September as we gear up for our Fall activities…Two (2) Bible Studies opportunities on Tuesdays @ 12 pm and Wednesdays @ 6 pm, The Book of Revelation will be the study focus; Wednesday evening meals will resume on September 12th @ 5:30 pm; District Charge Conference is scheduled for September 9th @3:00 pm at Mountain View UMC; Trinity Men are sponsoring an Ice Cream Fundraiser on September 9th @ 4 p.m. for special eye glasses for Ella, please be on the lookout for more information; and, be prepared to attend the additional committee meetings for Charge Conference.
God has me exploring and learning about the Ancient Pathways found in the Old Testament, learning from the patriarch of our faith for insight, guidance, wisdom and revelation for journeying deeper into my faith. Because of this new focus and because we are studying the Book of Revelation during the week, I will begin a sermon series on the Book of Daniel. There is much to learn about God, and from Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, Azariah (aka. Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego), King Nebuchadnezzer, King Belshazzar and King Darius on how the ancient pathways provide an opportunity for us to know the “mysteries of God.” Plan on joining us for our Sunday, 11:00 am Worship and invite a friend as we are awed by our amazing God.
If you are interested in additional ‘spiritual direction’ or ‘holy conversation’, please let me know. I am available as your pas-tor to assist, provide resources and encourage you as you continue to grow in Discipleship.
May God open your hearts, minds, souls and spirits to His amazing mysteries, will and purposes for your life and our church. Diligently seek Him and He will do amazing things to you and through you for the building up of His kingdom here on earth.
