Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church                                                                                                                                                   

Dear Friends,

It hardly seems possible that we are nearly at the midpoint of the year. July 2nd is officially the midpoint of the year, as there are 182 days before and 182 days after it in a common year, and 183 before it and 182 after it in a leap year. Now that we've established that fact, what did you do with the first half of the year?

For many of us I know it was just a blur, getting on with the stuff of life. Working, going to school, eating and sleeping, is usually the norm. If you're retired I believe that life goes even faster. So what did you achieve in the first half of the year?

My last sermon looked at the saying of Jesus in Luke's gospel, "No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the Kingdom of God." Luke 9: 62. So rather than dwell on the first part of the year, what are you going to do with the second half of the year? What are you going to focus on? What is the one thing you want to set your face to, aim for, and achieve?

If you had a slow start to the year, you could have a great finish! So what is the one part of your faith journey you want to finish strongly in? Is it your prayer life, your own faith formation, or simply your walk with Jesus? If you're at a loss as to how to finish the year out, then ponder our church mission statement and focus on how you can be a disciple of Jesus.

"The mission of Trinity United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."

Grace and Peace,

Rev. David Nellist, Pastor
