Here is my weekly email to the Trinity Church family for you:
March 28, 2020
10:30am Facebook live 
Dear Trinity family and friends,
The Psalmist notes, “O Most High, when I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”  
Isaiah writes, “God is my salvation; I will trust and won’t be afraid. The LORD, is my strength and my shield; he has become my salvation.”  I would encourage you to memorize this short line from Psalm 56 that I quoted, “O Most High, when I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” When you feel anxious, recite it as a prayer until it sinks into your soul. 

We’ll continue online worship this weekend with prayer, a message and holy communion. Bridget and I are looking forward to sharing this moment with you. This Sunday is the perfect time to invite your in-home family members and to join us for worship.

Our Facebook live worship will be at 10:30am. Look for the reminder at 9:30am on Trinity’s church Facebook page and prepare with us, with juice and bread in hand. Again, afterwards, Missi Anderson will present a short message for the children.

Some of you have told me that you have the television set up and everyone is invited to participate. That’s great! The message is from Ecclesiastes 11:1-8. Read this passage and prepare with all of us for worship. 

We are following the Pennsylvania Governor’s lead and paralleling the current policy for schools, local businesses, personal contact, and social distancing on dealing with this corona virus issue until we can flatten the curve.


I tell you this item to take seriously the stay-in-place orders and social distancing that is now, in Westmoreland County.


Connect through social media

Trinity is actively using social media to help us stay connected. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday night at 8 pm I am going live on Facebook for a 5-10-minute devotion and prayer. It’s live at 8, then it can be seen any time after that. Click here and then simply like and follow Trinity page and you’ll receive notices when I’m going live.

Financial update

I’ve been asked about the church’s finances in the midst of this stay-in-place period. Thank you to all who continue to give faithfully during this national crisis. Some are giving – thank you if that’s you! Know   that your tithes offerings really matter and continue to make possible the ministry of the church. Use your phone and give through our church app Givelify.

You can also continue to mail your offerings to:

Trinity United Christian Church

Once more, here’s a verse I’d love you to memorize and to pray – would you say it aloud right now as your prayer, “O Most High, when I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”  (Psalm 56:2b-3)
See you in worship (online!) this weekend!
