tRINITY CONNECT - JUNE EDITION
Hello Trinity Family! I’m excited about our new series, Deeper Love. Deeper Love is all about a deeper love relationship with God and others. Nobody wants wimpy, shallow, fickle love. That’s a painful place to be. We all want to love and be loved, deeply. This Summer, we’ll study different names that God uses for Himself in scripture. By looking at God’s names, we can better understand who He is and how deeply He loves us. And we can love Him better in return. As a bonus, I’m confident that God will empower us to love those around us more deeply as well. Please take a moment for some exciting news and a personal invitation to celebrate with our family!
Invest in the Vision Please join us to dedicate the new Ashkum facility to the Lord on June 11 at 1PM at 701 S Front Street in Ashkum! Then on Wednesday afternoon/evening, June 14, we’ll have a Community Open House to welcome our neighbors, thank everyone, and grill out together. Come and go as you please and invite a friend to this new tool for sharing God’s love!
Sabbatical Earlier this year, the elders offered our family the opportunity to take a sabbatical. It’s a chance to grow closer to God, to one another, and to the body of Christ. Our denomination encourages it every 5 years to help study, rest, and recharge for the next season of ministry. From June 15-August 9, please feel free to reach out to our staff, or any of our elders with ministry questions or needs. I have great confidence in God’s work through them. Some have already asked, “What about the annual gathering at the Mustered home?” Well, we’ve got something better this year!!! (see below)
Invitation to Celebrate! This is your personal invitation to join us in celebrating our oldest son Zach and his marriage to Victoria! After returning from their honeymoon, Sunday July 2, they will be at the new Ashkum Campus building for a reception! Reception begins at 12:30, with lunch at 1 and fellowship till 3. The attire is casual and please, no gifts. Some have asked the best way to help them to the mission field. That would be prayer! Please send a quick email to email@example.com to let us know if you plan to join us and/or if you’d like to be a part of Zach and Victoria’s prayer team!
Vacation Bible School Help transform a child’s life by the power of the Gospel! Sign up to help or invite a child that needs the love of Christ. Ashkum: June 19-23, 9-11:30AM; Watseka: June 19-22, 1-3:30PM.
During my sabbatical, I’ll be praying for you even more fervently! I’m also going through a book by Tony Evans called “Praying through the names of God,” in case you’d like to enjoy it too! I’ve also written a brief message of encouragement for you each month, reminding us of some fun opportunities to connect and reach out over the summer. May this summer find us loving God, the body of Christ, and our loved ones more deeply than ever!
In God’s deep and matchless love,
