OUR WORK | MY COMMITMENT—Annual March Stewardship Appeal: During the first week of March members will receive information about the upcoming Consecration Days for 2014. In the information members will be receiving in the mail see how we at Trinity English are working together to make a difference in the ministry and mission of our church and how this is made possible through the commitment of time, talent, and offerings. Consecration Days are Thursday, March 20 and Sunday March 23. We have been blessed by your faithfulness over the past year and we hope that you are excited about the opportunities for mission and ministry God will show us in the year ahead. More information is availabe on-line at Stewardship.
INTERGENERATIONAL RIBBONS OF PRAYER—As part of E3 (Exploring, Experiencing, and Expressing Our Faith through the Arts), we invite the congregation to participate in an arts installation that will hang in the Nave. Like the origami creation from last year, this year’s installation of ribbons of prayer is an opportunity for reflection on the breadth of God’s creation, his majesty, and our participation. In the Seeds of Faith Gathering Area each Sunday of Lent, beginning on March 16, there will be a table for you to join the E3 participants in this project by writing prayers, hopes, and dreams on the ribbons. Later this spring, these ribbons will be suspended from the nave tower, the vertical nature of the ribbons serving as a visual representation of our prayers ascending to God and the downward descent reminding us of God’s response and work in this world. We welcome your participation in this intergenerational arts opportunity.
