Today’s Word from Pastor Jim…

We hope that you will join the Church Council this Summer as we talk about the future of our beloved Trinity Lutheran Church. In preparation for a new five-year plan, we will be talking together and listening to each other. Most weeks there will be a question or two or three for you to consider.

If you are on our mailing list you will receive them by email, which you may reply to with your responses. A steering committee from the Church Council will read every response.

We will also have copies of the questions on the tables in the gym during coffee hour. It is our hope that you will enjoy time around the tables to discuss the questions before placing your responses in a collection box.

The questions for conversation this week:

1. Outside of worship on Sunday morning, what activities do you participate in at TLC?

2. Of these activities, what is the most important to you and why?

3. Do you see an unfilled need?

In the weeks that follow we will be considering many topics including: the Culture of our Church, Social/Fellowship events, Worship and Music, Educational programs, Service/Outreach opportunities, and staffing.

Those who prepare for the future are more likely to thrive. We believe that God wants TLC to thrive — we are, after all, Blessed to Be a Blessing!

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday.

Pastor Jim
