March 2018: We're heading in a good direction

Posted by Mark Donahue on Thursday, March 15, 2018 @ 12:00 PM

Greetings to all my fellow Holy Tinity-ites…. Happy Spring!?!?! Here we are, less than a week away from the first day of spring (March 20) and we’ve just finished our third major snow event in the last 10-11 days!!  Enough already!!  No Mas!!!

But we are heading in a good direction as we begin moving towards the end of Lenten season.  In another week we start with Palm Sunday (the 25th), then go into the time of trial and tribulations leading to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ with Maundy Thursday and Good Friday (29th and 30th), and then culminate with the celebration of our risen Lord on April 1.  Alleluia!! He is risen indeed!!!

Michelle and Tom Bernth have agreed to lead the Easter Breakfast between our two Easter Services, for which we are most appreciative. They’re planning on a “less complicated” breakfast than in past years, more along the lines of what was done last year so that all those helping to set up and serve can also attend and enjoy the complete church service. Please don’t be bashful about signing up when they post the sign-up sheets on the kiosk.

And while I’m in kind of a “Want Ad” mode……As part of Council’s on-going evaluation of the Wiggle Room and it’s staffing, we’re looking to add some people to our staff of attendants. Each week we need to have two people in the room from 8:00 AM until the end of the 11:00 AM service (normally noon), and we pay $15.00 / hour. One attendant needs to be over 18 years old. Our Safe Church Policy allows anyone who has attained the age of 13 to act as a monitor while working with a qualified adult, (defined as 18 or over) and no unrelated teenager may be left alone with a child at any time (An adult may be within earshot). The adult will have a background check completed. If anyone in the congregation might be interested in this job, or knows of anyone that might be interested, please let Scott Carson or any other Council member know or leave word in the office and you will be contacted.

How time flies…. Our “new” Pastor Tim has been with us for six weeks now, so he’s not quiet “new” anymore, but he’s still busy getting to know everyone. He’s been attending various Team meetings to learn of the involvements of each, and branching out into the community, meeting with the Portsmouth Area Clergy Group, and a small Weekly Text Study group of Pastors. 

And that’s all I have this time around …. Our Tuesday Council meeting was postponed until tonight (or last night if you’re not reading this until Friday the 16th) due to the snow so as this is written, I have no idea of what might come out of that meeting, but if there is anything, it’ll give me something to write about next month.

I wish each and every one of you and your family members a very Blessed Easter …. if you’re travelling during the Easter weekend may your trip be safe and as free of traffic hassles as possible.
