Hi folks, welcome to episode 11 of our weekly Trinity, coronavirus update. Things are beginning to happen around us, praise the Lord, as more folks are returning to work, more businesses are opening and as the stay at home restrictions are being reduced. There is a still a long way to go but we continue to pray that effective treatments are discovered and a vaccine is found to limit the damage of Covid 19. We trust in the Lord who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.
With that being said here are a few updates for you. First, if you, or someone you know, is in need of food, emergency financial assistance, or pastoral care please, contact us at the church office. (586-463-2921) There are still many needs and many hurting people. We’re here to help and we’ll do the very best we can.
Second, parents and grandparents it’s looking more and more like our school aged Summer camp IS going to happen. This is great news. Summer camp is for students completing K – 6th grade. Students can participate for a week or for the whole summer. Contact the Early Childhood Center for the details. (586-463-8803).
Third, a Graduation Celebration is being planned for our Trinity High School and college graduates. We’re excited about being able to honor the class of 2020, and this milestone in their lives, especially since they are not able to celebrate in the usual way this year. In order to be part of this event we need the students full name, a quality picture (preferably with cap and gown), their plans for next year (college, military, grad school, first job, etc.) any major awards or scholarships they have won, and a favorite scripture verse. Send this information to our Director of Student Ministry Blake Wright ( ) or sign up online no later than Wednesday, May 27. This is coming up quickly so get us your info asap.
Fourth, a quick shout out to everyone who has been making flood buckets. Initially we planned to send them to our H.A.R.P ministry partner in Ohio. With the flooding around Midland, however, these flood buckets, about 250 of them, will be redirected and used by folks in that area. So, thanks Trinity for serving others in this way.
Fifth, I know that everyone is eager to find out when we will begin “live” in person worship again. Me too. We are hoping to begin “in person” worship on Sunday, June 7. Monday, June 8 would be our first Monday evening service of the summer as well. Our re-opening team is meeting on Tuesday, May 26 so I should have more details for you by next Friday.
Finally, as folks start to reconnect with one another and as you head out to the lakes, cottages, and cookouts this Memorial Day weekend its really important to stop, pause, think, thank and remember. Since WWI more than 600,000 men and women have given their lives for our country. They have given the last full measure of devotion to defend our nation, to protect our liberties, to allow us to worship freely, and to fight against evil. They left behind heartbroken parents, spouses, siblings, children and friends whose lives were changed forever. This a weekend where we recognize their service and their sacrifice and we honor their memory.
Friends, as we continue to live by faith and not be fear I pray God gives you a restful and meaningful weekend. Peace!
