In Transition at Holy Trinity

We at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church are in transition. Now is the time to think long and hard about our future as a church in the Lutheran tradition serving the Seacoasts of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.  Please share your thoughts by commenting on any post, and come back often to see what your brothers and sisters in Christ are saying!

Update #7 – JOIN US On Sunday, October 2

Posted by Ray Masse on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 @ 6:06 AM

The Transition Team is pleased to announce that the outcome of our efforts will be shared with the congregation between services on Sunday, October 2.  Please join us for this important milestone in Holy Trinity’s future!

At this meeting the Transition Team will review its recent efforts and we will share a few specifics about the input the congregation provided in our various surveys.  An expanded set of results from the surveys will also be made available on the Holy Trinity website.  Lastly, and most importantly, we will provide a copy of the Ministry Site Profile (MSP) in draft form as a takeaway.  The congregation will be asked to review that document in the days thereafter in order to provide feedback to the Transition Team by midday on October 9. 

The ELCA describes the purpose of the MSP as follows:  “The MSP is meant to be a conversation starter or introduction to the life and work of your ministry site. It is not intended to be an exhaustive description of every aspect of your ministry. Focus on the key things that describe your ministry site in order to pique the interest of prospective candidates for call.”

On this same day Holy Trinity is holding its first one room school house faith formation activity for people (of all ages).  This may be helpful for parents who wish to attend the Transition Team session.

Even more exciting; once the final MSP is approved by the Council which we expect will occur on October 11, the process for calling a new pastor will begin!

Blessings From Your Transition Team,
