Dear Church Family,
At Trinity after we have come to the Lord’s Table for Communion we always end the service by singing the hymn “Blest Be the Tie that Binds.” This same hymn closes every deacons meeting as well. This hymn is a reminder of the unique fellowship and bond that is found between Christians who choose to share life together as a congregation. Trinity is a unique and special church. Whether it is the warm welcome, the compassion we express for one another, our worship or our dedication to sharing the gospel in word and deed, Trinity is a unique fellowship of believers. We are a church that believes in the “ties” that bind us to Christ and to one another. We want to be able to share this uniqueness with others that God sends to our congregation.
Over seven years ago, as we began to consider what type of facility expansion we might need to continue to preserve our identity as we grew numerically, we enumerated our need for more space in worship, gathering and classrooms.
Our planned project will address all of these needs as well as connect to our five core values:
Worship: The planned project will increase worship space and enhance our Sanctuary in regards to space for music as well as lighting, seating and sound.
Fellowship: The expanded Narthex will allow more space for people to greet each other and spend time in conversation week to week.
Discipleship: The new classrooms will give us more space to grow our crowded Sunday School.
Missions: The new space will allow guests the opportunity to gather information about our church and its mission. It will provide convenient places for registration and the opportunity to become connected in mission ministries.
Ministry: It is our hope that by creating more Sunday School space our ministry to each other will continue to be personal and intimate. New classes create new relationships for ministry and an expanded Narthex Welcoming Center will also offer opportunities to stay connected with each other. We all know how important those moments of connection at church each week can be.
It is our hope that through our planned capital project we will be able to reach and connect new people even as we deepen the identity and mission of our church. I hope you will join me and my family in making a sacrificial gift over the next four years to our campaign and planned project. Let us “Deepen the Ties that Bind.”
It is a joy to be your pastor,
Dr. Jeff Roberts
