Session 2018

As a PC(USA) church, Trinity is self governed by Ruling Elders, when they meet together it is called the Session. 

At the start of this year, your Session met to discern Trinity's priorities for 2018. By identifying priorities for the year, Trinity's worship services, ministry teams, and congregational life all have an aligned vision and purpose.

Through brainstorming, discussion, voting and prayer, Session identified the following priorities for 2018:

- Small groups: starting and growing in commitment level. This speaks to the yearning of our congregation to experience the Word in fellowship outside of Sunday morning worship. How is this going to look for Trinity? We hope to find out this year.

- Engaging issues of injustice. It is becoming more and more clear to us that social injustice is happening just outside our front door. What is God calling us to do in these times, and how do we answer that call? 

We praise God for our fruitful time as a Session, and are so excited to see what happens this year as a result of our priorities.

If you have any questions, I encourage you to reach out to one of your current ruling elders: Astrid Block, Pat Brown, Jim Gernand, Karen Gernand, Kim Nave, Mary Nissen, Kelly Richards, Joel Van Hofwegen, and Kirsten Vincent. Jerry Richey is currently serving as the Clerk of Session.
