As September progresses and all of the various ministries of Trinity begin another Autumn season, I encourage you to look into them, and discover where you can make a difference in the life of our congregation and the larger Long Island community.
In the coming weeks, on successive Sundays, each of our ministry committees will be exhibiting their work in our church narthex. Someone from each committee will be at each table, and they will be happy to share with you what they are doing now, and what their plans are for the months to come. If you have been away for a while (as Covid sidelined so many people), the exhibits will be a good way to reacquaint yourself with what Trinity is doing, and give you an opportunity to try something new.
I encourage you to take a few minutes after worship to check out the exhibits, talk to the committee members and perhaps, discover something you would like to do on behalf of others. The opportunities abound. Trinity needs help in every area. From worship assistants, to food pantry helpers, to Sunday School teachers, Stephen ministers, and property helpers, there is a place for you to use your skills and talents, and there is the additional bonus of getting to know and becoming friends with your fellow members.
So, check out the exhibits, and decide where the Gospel is leading you to make a difference.
Nevertheless, I am reminded of the words of the Prophet Jeremiah, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for your good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
