I can’t believe February is here already! The month of LOVE! This month, let us take the time to show and share our love with God and to everyone God places in our daily path. Sometimes just a smile or a brief verbal communication, such as “May God bless you!” will make all the difference to someone who needs to hear these words of blessing. I am excited about this month as we have sev-eral special events taking place.
First, we are inviting EVERYONE to join the Not-Quite-Vintage members sponsoring the Celebration of Love catered lunch-eon on Sunday, February 11th after worship. We hope ALL of you will join us as we enjoy a wonderful meal, fellowship, and musical entertainment.
Next, we will have our Ash Wednesday Service on February 14th at 6:00 p.m. to enter into the Holy Season of Lent. Lent lasts forty days and is usually the only time we practice fasting during the year. (John Wesley encouraged his Methodists to fast at least once a week.) Unless God calls you to fasting everyday of Lent, Sundays are a ‘feast day’ because it is the Day of the Lord. Please begin to earnestly ask God what He would like for you to give up or what ministry/service activity He may be calling you to participate in during these forty days. To connect Ash Wednesday with my sermon on January 21st, the Imposition of Ashes is a sign of your repentance of your sins, a visible and intentional act of turning away from your sins and turning toward God. This is really the focus of fasting during Lent, shifting focus from ourselves to spending time and focusing on God. Come join us as we journey together toward the cross with Jesus.
And last, as we continue “Living Our Vision”, our focus in 2018 will be INTENTIONAL DISCIPLESHIP. To get us started, we INVITE ALL of you to join us during the Sunday School hour to learn, study, and engage our theme “Disciples making Disciples to share the LOVE of Jesus Christ with our community and the world.” We have prayerfully spent time asking God the best ways to en-gage in Discipleship and He has revealed our areas of focus and how to measure our growth to maturity. The five (5) key areas are Wor-ship, Connection, Growing Faith, Ministry & Service, and Sharing Christ. The study will be supported by Scripture and led by Pastor Kristie, Jane Whitaker (Lay Leader) and our Sunday School Teachers. Please plan to join us for this exciting time of learning about discipleship and how to grow into maturity as ‘disciples called to make disciples’ (Matthew 28:16-20).
God has great plans for us here at Trinity UMC and I can’t wait to see the amazing transformation He leads each of us and our church through this year. May the love and peace of God surpass your understanding, may the eyes of your heart be enlightened, and may you live each day in the ‘victory’ Jesus Christ won for you through the cross and His resurrection, in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
