and to the steadfastness of Christ.
The word steadfast perhaps best describes the ministry of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in the calendar year 2014. We remained an active, vibrant, steadfast congregation.
Hundreds of individuals of all ages attended our worship services and participated in our ministries, programs, and special projects.
Financial support of our ministry remained strong and our capital stewardship appeal was successful. Significant additional funds were raised to support faith based ministries outside of our congregation.
Patiently and persistently we made progress towards our goal of expanding, renovating and renewing our parish hall.
Dozens of weddings, funerals, baptisms and bible study sessions were planned and conducted.
Our Sunday school curriculum was revised and a Saturday class added.
Our teenage members enjoyed an growing, spiritually centered, socially conscientious ministry.
Team Trinity conducted another successful mission trip.
Our Food Pantry and Hot Meal programs continued to provide a valuable and much appreciated community service.
Our music, worship leadership and fellowship groups provided opportunities for service and enriching friendship.
We can be proud of these accomplishments and the ministry we have conducted in 2014. We are, to be sure, a busy congregation with much to offer those who seek to be involved with a faith community. Busyness, in itself, however, is not our goal. Our goal is that through our ministries, programs and special projects the Lord will direct our hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.
