I pray this letter finds you being transformed to be more like Jesus. We have some important updates that represent a move toward healing in our communities. With Covid cases reducing and states progressing in phases (may God be praised!), we are reintroducing refreshments at each campus, moving back to two services in Watseka (9 and 10:45), and celebrating communion together this Sunday! We’ll be taking special precautions, such as serving you coffee and donuts (vs. self-serve) and using pre-sealed communion elements (a new brand). What a blessing to celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice together again! By the way, there’s no need to sign up for church this Sunday. However, we expect our biggest space constraint to be the Watseka 9AM service. If your schedule allows, please feel free to visit the later service. Thank you!
Goodland Outreach- Saturday July 4th and Sunday July 5th.
Services in Ashkum, Goodland, and Online will continue at the same times, with one exception. On Sunday, July 5th, we’ll be holding an outdoor service in Goodland from 8:30-9:30AM (with socially distanced breakfast preceding at 7:30). We’ll also be handing out water on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. It’s a great opportunity to serve the community and to be a light for Jesus during the Goodland Grand Prix. There will also be a movie night at the Goodland church on Saturday the 4th following the fireworks at about 9:30 PM. It will be a fun and festive weekend, with opportunities to enjoy music, a bonfire, and some seriously fast kart street racers. Check it out here! http://goodlandgrandprix.com If you would like to volunteer Saturday evening, Sunday morning, or to donate a case of water for the outreach, would you please let us know by calling the Trinity office or clicking this link Connection Card? Thanks!
We are prayerfully keeping an eye on state and federal guidelines. Our desire is to re-introduce children’s programming as soon as is safely possible. We are working and praying for reintroduction of our nursery ministry, with distancing, sometime in July. This may mean use of additional rooms and need for additional volunteers. Would you please pray for that? We hope to learn from this process, as an important step toward reintroducing all of our children’s programming. Meanwhile, the many kids who have come to the services have done an outstanding job! It’s been a joy to include them in the services. Thank you again, parents, for being flexible!
Ashkum Permanent Site
Some of you have asked about helping us to save and prepare for the Ashkum permanent site. Thank you! We currently have $80,000 saved and a family who has graciously offered to purchase the land. Wow! God is so faithful! As we assemble a building team and prepare to vote as a congregation in August, you may partner with us through the mail, mytrinity.tv, or the MyTrinityChurch app using “Invest in the Vision”, which will go directly for the Ashkum permanent site in this season. Thank you again for stepping up!
Let’s keep praying and working to see lives and communities transformed by the power of the Gospel. My love and prayers are with each of you!
In Christ’s Love,
