Hello church! We post these Sunday recaps to highlight the awesome things God did each Sunday at TCC. Here’s a recap of our Sunday services and programs last weekend.
Pastor’s Note: God is My Shepherd
The way David’s statement sounds, “God is my shepherd,” is kind of like hearing ‘Joe is my mechanic.’ I bring him my car, he fixes it, I pay him and then I go home. Yet, I do not believe that is what David has pictured as he says, God is my shepherd. However, if we look closely at what follows after David’s assertion about God, we find a completely different picture. God is actively a part of David’s life with four different actions in the following two verses; He makes me lie down, He leads (2x), He restores my soul. Far from a mechanic, David could not live without God as his Shepherd.
– Stephen Weiss
We commissioned six new Stephen Ministers last Sunday. Pastor Tom and Dave Brooks, our Stephen Ministry leader, welcomed them, charged them with the call to service as Stephen Ministers, and prayed for them. If you are interested in speaking with a Stephen Minister for confidential support during difficult times, don’t hesitate to reach out.

From the commissioning on Sunday we affirmed these words together:
Now, we ask you, members of Trinitarian Congregational Church, to open your hearts to the ministry of these new Stephen Ministers and to pray for them, that they may be effective servants of Christ. Are you prepared to meet this request?
So let’s pray for our new Stephen Ministers and allow them to serve us all.
