Trinity's Pastor, Staff, Protocol Planning Team and Administrative Council are preparing for worship in our own sanctuary. As we do, all our actions will be guided by these four principles for safe worship. For more details about what our plan must include and why, follow the link to the right.
My Dear Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
Wow! July is here already! As we enter the lazy, hazy days of summer, here at Trinity, we are gearing up to provide safe protocols so we can once again gather for in-house worship. I have missed worshipping with you in person these last months and greatly look forward to seeing you in person as we celebrate the amazing things God is doing in our lives.
July is the month we celebrate our Independence as a country and our freedom. First, we realize that freedom is not free and has a cost. As we know, many men and women have willingly sacrificed their lives for our freedom. We also must remember that Je-sus willingly offered His life as a sacrifice to give us life and freedom. As I said, freedom has a cost!
And second, while we celebrate our Independence from other governments, we also take the time to reflect that we live each day In-Dependence of Jesus Christ. Take time this month to examine your daily life for examples of how you are ‘dependent’ upon our Lord. For example, how often during the day does your mind turn toward your Lord and Savior? Just when you pray, or you engage with others, or look at creation, or enjoy your grandchildren and great-grands. Ask the questions: When? Where? And, How Often?
During the month of July, also be on the lookout for a new series of lessons regarding “Crossing Over into the New and Different”. We will be using the Book of Joshua as our scripture reference. We will look to Joshua and the Israelites in their crossing the Jordon into the Promised Land to lead us into our ‘New and Different’. Ministry can no longer be engaged in the way we have done it in the past. It is time to pray, look, share, engage and work together for New and Different ways to be the church and do ministry. ALL of YOU are essential. We are never too old, too feeble, and/or too sick to participate in the ministry of the church. Just ask me!
My Brothers and Sisters enjoy the July 4th celebrations, find places of respite from the heat, and join us each week (online) as we worship the One True Living God, .הוהיMay God overwhelm you with His amazing Love, grant you traveling mercies as you vacation with family and friends, and continue to reveal Himself to you as you continue to grow in faith and discipleship.
Love and Light in Christ,
Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
