In-Person Services and Gatherings

My dear church family,
As the song writer expressed, we are each one living our lives, “one day at a time”. 

Please find herewith attached a letter from our Bishop, Jeremiah Park.
In view of this communication from the Bishop and Cabinet, I am writing to let you know that we will not be meeting in-person for church services or gatherings at Trinity until the end of the year.

The Bishop’s letter captures the mix of emotions surrounding such a decision in a very pastoral manner.  As your pastor, I want to appreciate everyone who participated in our in-person worship services and especially those who worked behind the scenes and on the scene to offer the best environment for worship when we were able to meet.
 
I am writing this letter in consultation with our Leadership Team and urge all of you to continue to keep your eyes on the Lord, even through these very challenging, traumatic and painful days.  It is impossible to write a letter like this without thinking of the millions of homes and individuals whose lives have been painfully altered by this pandemic.  May each of you be blessed with health and strength and protection.
Under His everlasting arms, Arun

SECRET SISTERS PROGRAM

2021 Secret Sisters Program is open to all ladies of any age.  New ladies are welcome to join by completing a pink information sheet indicating information about you (favorite color, food, etc). This is to be returned to Vicky Forman by 12/31/2020. You will be given your Secret Sister’s name and information sheet for 2021, which will be selected by a lottery.  You do not reveal yourself to anyone for the entire year. Requirements for this program are a gift on Mother’s Day, her birthday, Easter and Christmas along with cards or notes of encouragement throughout the year. We currently gather with Zoom for an hour from 10:00 to 11:00 every 3rd Saturday of each month, for a time to chat, share and prayer. Please text Vicky Forman at 717-623-6568 or with any questions.
For those already involved in the 2020 SS program, due to COVID you are requested to drop your SS Christmas gift off at your SS’s home (not at the church), and reveal yourself by putting a note on the gift stating “do not open until 12/19”, and place a card which reveals your name and phone number so your SS can contact you directly.  If you need help getting your package over to your SS please let Vicky know as soon as possible. Since we are unable to gather together this year, a Sister’s name will be pulled out of a hat and given to you for the year 2021.

This project provides dignity, anonymity and a basic need to these students PLUS Trinity church is supporting OUR Community with this effort. CLICK HERE for a list of the preferred items.
