Community Dream Day February 12
In the spring of 2015, our church growth consultant, Rev. Dan Bonner, prepared a report recommending and encouraging our congregation to become more deeply connected to our neighborhood and surrounding community. It is sometimes hard to find people who agree on the distinctions between “mission” and “outreach.” But I do believe there is a subtle distinction. Mission involves meeting people’s tangible needs through hands-on service or monetary giving. Outreach involves building relationships with people beyond the walls of our church. Over the years, Trinity has done an outstanding job of supporting missions in our local community and beyond. But, as our church growth consultant pointed out, we need to grow our outreach.
Also in collaboration with our church growth consultant, Trinity developed the Vision Statement: “Growing in love and service through relationships with God and community.” Through that statement, we are affirming that the building of relationships is a primary concern.
This past fall, a small, diverse group of laity met together to begin to brainstorm ideas for how we might build stronger relationships with our neighborhood. On Sunday, February 12, they will share their ideas.
I hope you will remain after worship on February 12 for a light lunch and an event called “Community Dream Day.” That day you’ll hear some of the ideas already generated and you will have a chance to be a part of the process by offering your feedback, asking questions, and sharing your own ideas. Building community relationships isn’t easy and it will take significant time. No doubt some ideas will flop. But, as we continue to work together over time, we’ll see our relationships within our community grow. Relationships transform our lives; relationships – with God and our community – are how we grow numerically and spiritually. So mark your calendar now and plan to be a part of “Community Dream Day.”
Member Inquiry Session January 15
On Sunday morning, January 15, at 9:15 in the church parlor, Pastor Tracey will offer a Membership session for anyone who is interested in exploring church membership.
At Trinity, membership is a two-step process consisting of an hour long membership session and “Pastry with the Pastor.” These two steps can be done in any sequence. “Pastry with the Pastor”
focuses on our congregation and community and allows you to get better connected to Trinity. The membership session focuses more directly on United Methodist history, beliefs and structure; as well as examining the five vows taken by new members to uphold the church with one’s prayer, presence, gifts, service and witness.
Attending the membership session does not obligate you to join Trinity, but allows you to learn a little more about what church membership entails.
Refreshments are provided so please RSVP to Pastor Tracey at email@example.com or by calling the church office (765) 742-1288.
