First of all, we want to let you know that last Sunday the people of Trinity ELC voted 95% in favor of joining Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC). In a second action the congregation voted 99% in favor of calling Pastor Tim Graff as their full-time pastor.
Both of these decisions await approval. An application to LCMC will be submitted and require approval by the LCMC Board of Trustees.
Pastor was presented with the official Letter of Call today and has up 30 days to respond. In a response to this letter he wrote today:
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ at Trinity,
I want to acknowledge and thank you for your vote of confidence last Sunday. You have affirmed your belief that God is calling me to be your shepherd. I will now take some time to prayerfully consider this invitation and seek God’s wisdom in whether or not to affirm your action.
In Christ’s name,
Pastor Tim Graff
Our next service is Sunday, February 3. This is our monthly Family Sunday filled with creative worship, family involvement and a free lunch after the service. Everyone is welcome! A great day to invite a friend or even an entire family.
