Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Our faith community welcomes you and your family.  We have been serving Christ and Lenoir City since 1867. Our church offers an opportunity to meet and worship with new friends and old, find family activities and build new relationships.

     Time seems to be flying as we will celebrate Palm/Passion Sunday and enter into Holy Week the end of this month. I pray that your time of fasting, reflection and meditating on the Word of God is passing quickly. John Wesley encouraged his ‘people called Methodists’ to fast every week at least once if not twice. To begin their fast after dinner on Thursday evening until afternoon tea at 3:00 p.m. on Friday. Is that really asking too much of us? For us to give up breakfast and lunch to spend time in prayer and/or study. Fasting is a discipline that usually goes without much focus or emphasis until Lent. How do you think our Lord would respond, if we, here at Trinity UMC, engaged in the spiritual discipline of fasting once a week seeking a holy encounter with Him for ourselves and our church? I believe not only would our faith be stronger, but that our witness in and to our community would be off the charts. That’s how our God works!
     Please remember our studies of ‘Intentional Discipleship’ on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. and our Lent Bible Study on the Book of James on Wednesday evenings 6:00 p.m. and Friday mornings at 11:00 a.m. As we continue to journey with Jesus toward Jerusalem, we prepare ourselves for Holy Week. This year we will have our Maundy Thursday Service at 6:00 p.m. on March 29th and Good Friday Service at 6:00 p.m. on March 30th. Please plan to participate in these two special services. I do not see how one can celebrate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem one Sunday and His resurrection the next Sunday without spending time at the cross sometime during the week. The Resurrection Story is only complete when we make sure we include the Crucifixion of our Lord.
     I am so excited about all of the outreach programs and ministries we have planned and your response to participate. My brothers and sisters, God is doing amazing things in and through us, let us continue to step out in faith and trust in His purpose and plans for our lives and our ‘community of believers’.
     May God overwhelm you with His love, challenge you to step out in faith, and anoint you with His holy presence. 

Large enough to serve, Small enough to care

Love in Christ,

Pastor Kristie
