From this Foundation Our Ministry Grows

The Capital Campaign kicked off with last week’s visit from the Mission Investment Fund’s Paula Kitt who preached and conducted a Q & A Forum between the reSource and Traditional services. Our thanks go out to Paula.  Two dates to mark your calendars are:


  • Today, Sunday, October 21th kicks off the Ten Days of Prayer. As outlined in a letter you should have received from Pastor Robert the end of this week which included the prayer pamphlet. Please take a few minutes each day to pray for our Church and the Capital Campaign.
  • Sunday, November 18th has been set for our Commitment Sunday. There will be one service at 10:00 am as we come and make our commitment for the Capital Campaign and for our 2019 giving for God’s work through Trinity.
