MMO MATCHING CHALLENGE

Because of YOU!

This is Exciting!

Because of you and your continued faithfulness and dedication to your building fund pledges and Step Up Challenge this year, Trinity Presbyterian Church is on target to make all of our mortgage payments in full for the year! What this means is that we are now in a position to attack the principal of our mortgage.

Now, how we do it…

We have been issued another challenge! With approval from the Session and a $5,000 pledge from our Mother’s Morning Out Program, we have a chance to attack the mortgage principal and the opportunity to double the money with this challenge! Our challenge as a congregation is to not only match, but to hopefully exceed, the $5,000 already promised to the building principal. If we can match the gift of $5,000, we can make a principal payment of $10,000! That, Friends, is truly EXCITING!

So, Trinity, we have been challenged to open our hearts this month and grab a BLUE envelope! Please fill that BLUE envelope with your own monetary value that puts you above and beyond your normal monthly building pledge. With your help and dedication to Trinity, you can make a difference!

Dear Friends,

The excitement and joy of Easter morning worship has happened once more! I hope you agree that Easter morning in church was wonderful: our beautifully crafted and decorated wooden cross, the special music, family and friends from out of town, and all of the wonderful children dressed in their cheerful “Easter finery”. It was unquestionably a fitting and appropriate celebration by the children of God marking God’s victory over death through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are no longer held captive to the grave!

Now, we are in that time of the church year once known as “Eastertide” (the Sundays after Easter and before Pentecost). Historically, the church has emphasized in worship during Eastertide how the reality of the resurrection makes a tangible difference in our lives. As disciples, it is our challenge is to make the reality of the resurrection an ever present reality in our lives.

However, our temptation, now that Easter morning is past, is to simply pick up life where we left off prior to the joy of Easter. Truly, the path of least resistance is the path of following our routines; our routine way of treating others, our routine response to difficulties in life; our routine attitude toward God’s claim over our lives as His children.

Scripture itself gives witness to our human proclivity toward the path of least resistance. Indeed, even Jesus’ disciples choose this path of “least resistance” following the discovery of the empty tomb. In John’s gospel, chapter 20:10, it reads, “Then the disciples returned to their homes.” As they were confronted by the resurrection, confronted by God’s victory of life over death, their response was to simply resume their routine. They went home! Their response seems unfathomable to us. In fact, it is beyond our understanding, but it is what scripture records.

Without question, the reality of the resurrection is so fantastic, so marvelous, so wonderful, it can overwhelm us. It certainly overwhelmed the disciples. They didn’t know how to make sense of it. It didn’t then, and it doesn’t now, fit into our established categories of understanding. There is nothing routine about the resurrection! It changed everything. No longer does death hold power over us. God is a God of life, not death.

I encourage us to discover the ways we can change our routines to reflect that reality. Given God’s victory, we can have the courage to forgive those who wrong us. We can take the risk of being faithful as we extend ourselves in friendship to help and comfort those who need us. We can live with the confidence of a people who have been redeemed and restored as God’s children. If you ever begin to question God’s love for you, think back to the events of Good Friday. There is nothing more important to God than being in relationship with you. 

Christian discipleship is not something which just happens. It is something which takes attention and nurture. So, then, let us use this time of “Eastertide” to focus on the ways we can avoid our routine patterns of relating to our world, each other, and to God. Remember, God is with us strengthening us and guiding us, if only we are open to the leading.

Blessings,
Marc
Calling All Graduates!
Our Graduate Recognition Sunday will be May 20, 2018. If you have a December 2017 or Spring 2018 high school, college or technical school graduate in your family, please submit a brief bio and a photograph to the church office by May 11th. 

There will be a reception to honor our graduates immediately following the 11:00 am worship service. We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our youth and young adults!
From the Director of Christian Education & Youth
“Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an
example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”
                        1 Timothy 4:12   
 
 
 Aren’t our youth amazing?! I am so very proud of the excellent leadership they provided at both services on Youth Sunday. Thank you to Thomas Barksdale, Hamilton Chapman, Adam Clark, Jorja Clark, Cameron Garabedian, Landyn Klug, Hannah McKay, Lily McKay, Chase Mullis, Kyle Rogers, Will Sharpe, Grace Short, Kaleigh Smith, Henry Waldrep, Charlotte Weikle, Lillian Weikle, Anna Kate Wingard, and Caroline Wingard for your hard work and preparation for this special Sunday!  Thank you also to the children who signed for us: Edwin Furr, Ben Huminski, Mabry Anne Mullis, Mallory Mullis, Elizabeth Pace, Hannah Pace, Annabelle Snow, Carter Snow, Elliott Snow, and Blair Weikle. We are blessed to have all of these young people and children in our midst at Trinity.

 May will be filled with opportunities to share our faith through service to our local community and to those around the world. From passing out water at the Swamp Rabbit Trail 5K, to unloading canned goods at the North Greenville Crisis Ministry, to packing nutrient rich meals for Rise Against Hunger with the Foothill Presbytery, our youth will continue to be the hands and feet of Christ.

 Our children have been learning about patience in both CWE, and WNL. Now there’s a fruit of the Spirit that most of us need to practice a little more! While our Wednesday Night Live children’s program will be winding down on May 2 nd , CWE will continue through the summer and we will, of course, be ramping up for Vacation Bible School in June.  While school may soon be out, may our spiritual growth continue!
In Christ’s service,
Terri

Notes from Our Choir Director

Beginning in May, our “Summer Choir” schedule will start, where we will be working on accessible anthems and choir favorites. These will be rehearsed in the choir room on Sunday mornings before the 11 am service. If you’ve been looking for a low-stress commitment but you’re interested in singing, the Summer choir is a great place to start! Wednesday night practices will resume in August. If you have a request, Summer is a great time to try out new ideas or reprise old favorites you may not have heard in worship in a while. We love suggestions- Just let Leah know!
 
CHERUB/JUNIOR CHOIR PRACTICE SCHEDULE UPDATE:
Our Children will sing “I’ll Fly Away” as part of our Bluegrass Sunday/One Worship service on May 6. Our final practice for this will be Wednesday, May 2nd @ 6 pm in the choir room. All kids are invited to participate! Kids will love being a part of this fun, upbeat anthem.
The men of the choir will be singing on Sunday, May 27th in the 11am service. We’ll meet in the choir room at 10:30 am to go over the songs. Please join us … and bring sons, sons-in-laws, fathers, grandfathers, brothers, neighbors—all are welcome for this special commemoration!  
From the Director of Music Ministry
Summer’s almost here! With that, we are beginning to downshift in our weekly activities at church for the music ministry. May 2 nd will be our last scheduled choir rehearsal for cherubs, junior and chancel choir. Be sure to join us at our annual end-of-year celebration picnic at Paris Mountain State Park on May 9 th !

The last Sunday of April was our first youth-led Sunday service for several years. There were high numbers of youth participation in both services, and they did an incredible job. Be sure to congratulate and thank them when you see them!

Our 9am service has a new vocalist and worship leader working with us regularly. Her name is Celina Schwartz. Celina is a graduate from the worship leading program at North Greenville University. We look forward to having her assist us in worship with our talented and dedicated team over the summer and throughout the year.

I am personally excited to be taking two Sundays at the beginning of June to travel for continuing education. My focus will be on observing and worshiping in contemplative practices in Christian community.  I’m hoping to see how we may incorporate some of these methods into our own worship rhythms at Trinity. Keep me in your prayers!

As always, if you are interested in serving with the worship teams for either or both services, let me know. We currently have a high level of need in the video presentation/PowerPoint teams for both services. Please let me know if that is something you’d be willing to participate in once every four to six weeks. We provide the training, and the 11am service, in particular, is very straightforward.

Eric Barnhart, Director of Music Ministry
