IMPORTANT: Church Survey & Recap of Town Hall #3
Church Survey & Town Hall Recap
Dear Trinity Family,
We wish you a happy Thanksgiving! Whatever this week looks like for each of us, may we overflow with gratitude, joy, and generosity in Christ!
We have two important updates to give you: first is a Church Survey, second is a recap of our third Town Hall meeting. Learn more below!
We are asking our church members to take a few minutes to complete a 5-question survey. This is a simple poll to help our Leadership Council and Church Family gauge what everyone’s current sense of discernment is as we have been learning about the future of our denomination. We want to make sure that everyone has a chance for their voices to be heard and their questions to be answered. Please help us by completing this survey by December 5th. Click the link below or pick up a paper copy from the Church Office. Thank you!
***Please only take this survey 1 time - if you already turned in a paper copy from Sunday's Town Hall, you do not need to complete this digital version.***

3rd Town Hall Meeting Recap
Last Sunday after worship, we held our 3rd Town Hall meeting to explore the future of our United Methodist denomination and our options as a congregation. This meeting had a unique format from the previous two: rather than meeting in the sanctuary to hear a presentation of information, we gathered in a circle in the Fellowship Hall (over 50 people were present). We believed now that the church has had a chance to receive and digest all the information, it was time to sit in a circle and share our hearts as family in Christ. During this meeting, members of the Leadership Council, Trinity Staff, & Church Members all shared their hearts, offering their current sense of conviction and discernment as we continue to seek God's direction together.
Click the link below to hear the recording of this gathering. We apologize for the lower quality of audio. Due to the unique format, our only option was to record the audio using a smart phone. It is best to listen with headphones or a good speaker. If any portions of speaking are inaudible for you, simply skip ahead in the video.

Next Town Hall Scheduled
Save the date - we will gather for a 4th Town Hall meeting on Sunday, December 11th following the second service. At this meeting, we will share the results of the Church Survey and continue our conversation and discernment.
Thank you for dedicating time to prayer and fasting this past month and more! We are seeing God answer prayer. The Spirit is moving. He is guiding us into humility, understanding, and unity in the Spirit. Continue to pray for our future as we seek to walk with God together!
