What Trinity Means to US

 The people that make up our community
 The compassion that is shown to all
 The outreach efforts made
 The beautiful worship services and all that goes into them

These are the things that we love about Trinity. And I would be willing to bet that most of you could share stories, funny or sad or uplifting stories, about how the people of this community have impacted your lives.

I was asked to talk about the responses to the post cards received throughout this year’s stewardship campaign. In reading the responses, I first considered what Stewardship means. Webster’s says it is the conducting, supervising, or managing of something especially: the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care.

Not only has this physical space been entrusted to us but this community and the larger community as well, have been entrusted to us to care for and manage.

Your dreams for Trinity reflect good Stewardship and a living out of our Baptismal vows.

 Continuation of the Soup Kitchen
 A new ecology ministry
 A holy garden with roses
 Active involvement in interfaith events and activities
 More families with young children leading to a renewal of
Christian Ed programming
 Increased volunteer participation in all areas of ministry

I share these dreams with all of you and I know that together we can make them a reality.

What part will each of us play in realizing our dreams?

Thank you.
