At the start of this year, your Session met to discern Trinity's priorities for 2017. 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 2017:
- 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.
- Making the life of the church a top priority. We would love for everyone at Trinity to experience the church as a sacred part of their life; whether it's a mission partnership, a bible study, Sunday worship, or other activity. How do we help people prioritize the church?
- 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.
