For the Journey – April 2023

“For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” Romans 12:4 
The Scripture goes on to tell us that we all have different gifts and encourages us to use our gift in the measure of our  faith. Everyone can see that God has gifted Trinity Baptist Church with incredible members who use their gifts and talents for God’s best and our blessing. God has a path set out for us both individually and as a family journeying together. It is a beautiful thing to see the wake of our travels and how God has blessed.  
The Victor is always a God given task. It has been a faith journey as we have prepared for this years gift to our community without a Worship Minister in place. Others have stepped up and carried great responsibilities in order for us to put ourselves in the position of presenting the gospel to our community. Thank you choir, drama, technical team, advertising and inviting teams, and anyone who took it upon themselves to be on the giving end of this years presentation. Wiley Wilkerson, Suzanne Harston, Riley Gordon and Sue Stewart have gone above and beyond. 
If you haven’t heard, Trinity Baptist Church voted to call Charlie Barganier as our next Minister of Worship. Charlie, Vanessa, Noah, Micah and Hannah will be coming our way very soon. Welcome Barganiers, we are excited about our journey together. Charlie’s first Sunday will be May 7th.  
We are fully in our new ministry space and it is amazing to see the connections already taking place. People are gathering in our new space all during the week. Thank you, Trinity, for your faithfulness to our process and kingdom agendas. Thank you, Wayne Uecker, Kay Bell, Wayne Comer, Kaleb Kurz, Paula Locke, and Lyda Green for serving on our Building Task force and bringing us home.  
I pray you will have a blessed Easter and find time for gratitude and commitment during this season of remembering all God did through Christ on our behalf. May we find ourselves in full service to Christ as we use our gifts together. 
In Christ,

Pastor John
