It’s crazy to realize that we’ve already reached the last weekend of September. It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that we were talking about October 1 as the date when we would review our assumptions about COVID-19 and the possibilities for physically gathering. Here we are! Please pray for our Council and our staff as we strive to make the most faithful decisions possible amid a context where there are no easy or universal answers.
This Sunday will feature a number of unique features and new access to boot! First, we’re going to return to our “Upside Down” sermon series as we explore the challenging values of Christ’s kingdom or “commonwealth,” using Matthew and Philippians as our basis. We’ll be discussing how developing genuine humility is our starting point for changing the world. Come ready! We’ll gather on the lawn, in vehicles, through the recorded service on our website, and even live-streamed on Facebook – all at 9:00 a.m. Sunday. Sure hope you can join us!
At 9:45 a.m., we’ll continue with a special Family Ministry Experience (FX) for children and their parents, once again available outdoors in person on the lawn or in your cars via zoom.
Last but not least, we’ll be celebrating Confirmation Sunday with 15 of our young people in a revised and safe fashion – in a special service for their families at 11:00 a.m. Please keep these youth in prayer as they commit to continuing to grow in their journey of faith!
On an unrelated note, we invite all who are interested in furthering their relationships, community, and understanding to take advantage of upcoming “1-on-1 Training” through Johnson County Interfaith, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on either Oct. 5th or 12th. It’s an excellent chance both to meet some neighbors in faith and to grow in awareness of yourself at the same time! Shoot me a note to tim@holytrinityNL.org if you’d like to participate!
Hope that you can be present with us this weekend and beyond!
