All will know the love of God through the teaching of Jesus!!
Trinity U.C.C. is called by
God to:
–Share God’s love with our
–Serve God’s children
–Bring healing and
wholeness to those in need
–Share the Gospel in
liturgy, music and study
And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
(Hebrews 10:24-25)
Catch the Vision,
Share the Joy!!

Dear Friends,

As I write this letter to you, my children are in their final days of school! I can’t believe the summer months are here already! However, I say that every year.
Many of us will go away during the summer months for refreshment and relaxation. It will also be a busy time in the life of Trinity Church. We will enjoy the fellowship at the Lancaster Stormers baseball game, mini-golf at the Caddy Shack in Manheim, VBS (for all ages), the Friendship Fest (food trucks, craft vendors, concert, and fun activities to raise money for our preschool), and the annual church picnic. The Trinity Preschool will be busy with their summer camp in June. This is a great way to stay connected with our preschool families and connect with potential families for our preschool ministry.
It is so easy during the summer months to disconnect from the life of the congregation. However, I hope you will be intentional about meeting together for worship, study, and fellowship throughout the summer! As Hebrews 10 reminds us, it is the habit of some to refrain from meeting together. Therefore, we are called upon to provoke or stimulate one another to be involved in the community of faith!
There are several ways to stay connected with the community of faith while you are away. Stay informed through the bulletins that are emailed each week. You will be able to view our services online each week. Our leaders join me in reminding you to continue supporting the church financially by sending in your offering or giving through our website.
I would encourage you to find a community of faith to worship with when you are on vacation. Your presence with another congregation is a great way to connect that part of the Body of Christ with Trinity Church! You might even find some new ideas that you can share with me and our congregational leaders. You can tell others about Trinity!
If you are unable to travel this summer, I would encourage you to travel through photos of past vacations and enjoy the opportunity to remember those times. If you are at home this summer, I hope you will also be able to stay connect with the faithful of Trinity Church!
As you go off on our summer journey, I offer this blessing adapted from the Lutheran Book of Worship: O God, our beginning and our end, you kept Abraham and Sarah in safety throughout the days of their pilgrimage, you led the children of Israel through the midst of the sea, and by a star you led the magi to the infant Jesus. Protect and guide us now as we set out to travel. Make our ways safe and our homecoming joyful, and bring us at last to our heavenly home, where you dwell in glory with our Lord Jesus Christ and the life-giving Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
