A New Program Year Has Begun

The new program year has begun, and we are off to a fast start. Check out the calendar of activities in this issue of the Tidings and the details for these activities and more contained in the articles within. Plan to be part of the ministry of Trinity. You will not be disappointed.

Our new year of Confirmation has begun with thirteen young people in attendance at either Credo I at 9:15 a.m. or Credo II at 11:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings. In addition to the Credo material from Cokesbury and the memorization of the Apostle’s Creed, we are learning about what others believe, both Christian and non-Christian. This past week we started with information on the Sikh religion. We will then move to the Oriental Orthodox churches (Syrian, Coptic, Ethiopian). We are also planning to schedule visits to some of the faith communities which have houses of worship in our vicinity. Please know that interested adults are always invited to confirmation classes and will be welcomed on the field trips as far as the accommodations of the hosting site will allow.

Our adult Sunday morning classes continue. Brian Hendricks is teaching a Bible Study in Trinity Hall, and different volunteers facilitated by Paul Brezinski are meeting for Contemporary Issues in the Fireplace Room. If you are interested in adult Sunday morning study, plan to attend.

Our musical ministry is in full swing. Check the schedule for opportunities and plan to participate. There is a music program appropriate to all ages. Note that the Bell Choir is planning special meetings for those who would like to “play with the bells” in a non-threatening fun environment. If you have ever wondered whether you might like to play bells, this is a change to find out. No commitment required.

Even though there are many activities, there is always room for more. If you have ideas for a ministry or other activity, please talk to the staff. We would love to hear and support what arises from the congregation.

And remember; keep praying for Trinity. God is good. We are blessed. But we always need prayer to support the mission and ministry of the Church.

Grace and peace to all,

Pastor Dan
