Doing Christ’s Ministry Together

Dear Trinity Friends,

God has place a marvelous church among the people of McLean. This household of God, also called Trinity, is strong and healthy as we head into the new year—thanks to all of you! And, thank you!

The year 2015 witnessed the transfer of the youth pastor mantle from Nick McMichael to Associate Pastor Keith Lee. Generous and effective ministry continues through the talents and gifts of our other Associate Pastor, Eileen Gilmer, and our Music Director, Jerry Rich. The Director of Children’s Choir, Ellen Fillette, along with our seminary interns—Nila Curry, Nick McMichael and Lauren Michelle Stevens—enhance and strengthen Trinity’s ministries to our children and youth; they are the future of Trinity. Catherine Wethington leads the singing at our 8:30 a.m. worship service, Harriet Latta and Jose Nuñez manage Trinity as our office manager and sexton; they all serve our church with enthusiasm and joy.

The staff of Trinity Church is proud of each and every one of you and we’re proud to be leaders among leaders. Your generosity in supporting Trinity’s ministries through your very personal gifts of precious time, the use of the Spirit’s gifts of your specific talents, and your hard-earned money is greatly appreciated.

Eileen, Keith, and I pray that the year 2016 will be filled with peace and good health for each of you. Peace has come to mean a time when there are no wars or, at least, any major wars. But in Hebrew peace, shalom, means fullness—having everything you need to be wholly and happily yourself.
