We are working diligently to be sure that our guidelines are in line with recommendations from our government, the CDC and our local health department. Check back regularly for updates.

A Note From Our Council President

Commitment to Serve

We are entering into the time of the year when we look to each other to share the gifts that God has given to each of us.

I know that Janis Bondurant is looking for new members to join the choir.  Janis is an excellent teacher and I hear stories of how Janis uses her gifts to teach others about music and how to teach even those that think they don’t have a voice to sing and create beautiful music for all of us to enjoy.  Sure it takes some extra time and requires a little extra commitment, but the comradery, fellowship, joy and feeling of success/accomplishment is well worth the effort expended.  Just give it a try.  Take Janis up on her offer to join the choir.  You just might get hooked.

And there is Congregation Council – – now is the time of year when you might be approached to allow your name to be put on the ballot for an opportunity to serve in the leadership body of the church.  Just say “YES”.  You would not be approached unless the Nominating Team (and Council) thinks that you have what it takes to serve in this capacity.  My goal is to have more candidates say “YES” than there are slots to fill.  This afford the congregation an opportunity to make a choice instead of just a “rubber stamp” vote for just enough candidates to fill slots available.  Afraid of not getting elected?  Don’t be – – there will be plenty of other opportunities in subsequent years to serve as a Council member.  Again, being a Council Member requires commitment, dedication and thoughtful consideration of decisions that impact the congregation, but the return on your investment of time is far greater than you anticipate.  You get to know fellow committed leaders that only want what it best for God’s church at Trinity.  So again, if asked to be considered as a Council Nominee, just say “YES”.

There are so many more opportunities to serve.  You could be a “Helping Hands” volunteer.  Linda Gordon know the ropes and will be glad to teach and mentor you.  There are opportunities to help with maintenance and upkeep of the church property.   If you want to serve in this capacity, reach out to Lori Kincer, indoor and Outdoor Property Chair.  I’m confident that she has work for you.  Then there is Usher, Lector, Alter Guild, Assistant Sunday School Lead …. the list goes on and on.

Want to serve, but unsure who to contact?  Feel free to reach out to Vicar Luke or anyone on the Congregation Council.  We will get you in touch with the right person.

Service and giving equals joy!!  When presented with an opportunity to serve, take a chance and say “YES”.   You may be surprised by the joy you will feel when you give of yourself in service to God and your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

Thanks be to God.

Troy Kincer

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NRSV

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”
