Dear Trinity Family,
I can hardly believe that next week is Thanksgiving! I am looking forward to spending time with my family and friends and hopefully watching the Dallas Cowboys win! (I can dream, can’t I?) I pray that your Thanksgiving is one of rest and you enjoy a peaceful heart of gratitude for who God is and for his many blessings in our lives. God has been moving in and blessing Trinity so much this year that it’s hard to keep track of it all! He is so good and faithful, isn’t he? Here are just a couple of God’s blessings from the last week.
On Friday we had a great workday. Many people sacrificed their holiday day off to come and clean up, improve, and care for the buildings and grounds with which God has blessed us. We cleaned up a couple of storage rooms, improved our student ministry area to continue to develop it into an excellent and welcoming environment for our students to hear how much God loves them, we finished up the Club 456 room so that our 4-6 graders have a fun and unique place of their own on Sundays, and we tore down the Trinity sign so we can keep making progress on the new sign project that has been in the works since January! All of these are significant steps toward making our buildings and grounds more usable so we can be the church our community needs. Thank you to everyone who came to help. I really appreciate you all.
If you were at our worship gathering Sunday or watched it online, you heard amazing stories from the One Table One Community event on Saturday. Through your generosity we were able to enjoy a great lunch together and give about 80 Thanksgiving meal bags! Again, many people served with a joyful heart and great skill. It was a true blessing for me to be able to simply be there and meet people because so many people were working hard to make this event a huge success! Thank you Amber Dettman and the Covered in Love team for making One Table One Community happen! I am so proud of you all! Great Job!
Lastly, our Sunday Kids Town and Club 456 teams are having a super fun pancake breakfast this Sunday. We will have our 1-6 graders in the fellowship hall where we will eat a great breakfast, have a lot of fun, and learn more from the Bible together. Parents we will have our normal check-in procedures. The kids are excited for this fun event. I had one boy tell me he was going to eat 100 pancakes! (Oh, to be young and have that metabolism again!)
I hope to see you this Sunday as we worship our great King Jesus together, (and maybe eat some pancakes!)
