Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church
Welcome to 2017! I'm hoping you're surviving the 'holidays' reasonably well and looking forward to exploring the New Year like a crisp downfall of snow that's never been trodden on. Or maybe just a blank piece of paper that's waiting to have a script written on it, the script of your life. If we let it, the world will grab hold of our life and toss us this way and that way until we don't know what direction we are going. So, let me share that a good way to start the New year is not necessarily to write a 15 page life plan, but rather to think and pray about what is important to you and develop a plan around that.
A plan might contain something personal, such as a new skill you could learn. For instance, learning to drive, getting to grips with a new language, or learning to cook. A second part of the plan could involve other people, like getting involved in a
community project or activity. Yet a third phase of a plan for your life might be to go further afield, like on a mission trip to Northport, MI, and work at Spirit Journey, a Native American camp sponsored by Trinity UMC. Or perhaps you might connect with others at Trinity and go to Haiti and serve at H.A.P.I (Haitian Artisans for Peace International). I would really encourage you to be involved in the life and soul of Trinity in January. Here's some ideas to get you started:
Jan. 8- Launch of all-church study Holy Currencies: Gifts from God at the 10:30am Family First service followed by a Bible study and light lunch.
Jan. 9- Leadership Training from 5:30-8pm in Discovery, facilitated by Nichea.
Jan. 15- Preview Eulogy Gathering at 9am in the sanctuary. Your support is needed for this service. Even if you are a 10:30am worshipper, try and commit to attending Eulogy on this day. You might be able to share the service with someone who is
seeking something just like it.
Jan. 22- Rock the Night Auction & Soup Luncheon in aid of our mission work.
Jan. 29- Scout Sunday at the10:30am worship service followed by one of my favorites, the Spaghetti Dinner and Pinewood Derby.
So, there's just a few pointers to help you have a wonderful January. In John's gospel Jesus said, I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:11. My prayer for Trinity is that you may experience some of that abundant life.
Peace, Light and Love,
Eulogy is the New Worship Gathering!
