Dear Trinity family and friends,
A few weeks ago, Cheryl Litz and myself attended a seminar in Butler PA hosted by the Department of Homeland Security and other authorities. The presenters provided numerous ideas to keep our church safe and secure. In the end, they believed that implementing these recommendations should help church people feel safer in our sanctuary and building. Cheryl will be working with us on a Security Team for 2020. Very soon, we will pray over each person involved with the Security team in worship and claim the scripture from Psalm 46:1…
“God is our safe place and our strength. 
He is always our help when we are in trouble. 
We will not be afraid!”
See Cheryl if you would like to be involved with Trinity’s Security Team. as we will do our best to continue to make your church a safe place for everyone!

Divine Interruptions
Interruptions can happen at any time. Consider the timing of Joseph and Mary’s interruption. They were engaged to be married. Like Christmas, an engagement is supposed to be a wondrous time. But it was during this time that an angel appeared to Mary and told her that she would miraculously, as a virgin, conceive and give birth to the Son of God. What an interruption! How would she explain her pregnancy to Joseph? This was not in their plans. And yet, she accepted it. We know how Joseph responded. He didn’t believe her. How could he? His life, as well as hers, had been interrupted. If we are not careful, our response to an interruption can send us down the wrong path. Joseph nearly went down the wrong path. When he discovered Mary’s pregnancy, he was devastated. He couldn’t buy her story about a virgin conception, so, there was nothing to do but divorce her. Be with us on Sunday as we will see that the interruptions in life are many times divinely planned, and can be the best moments of life! Read Matthew 1:18-25 to prepare for worship.
As we continue to prepare for Advent and the coming of the Lord, I am, as always, deeply grateful for you, Trinity and for the privilege of serving as your senior pastor.
Pastor Cletus
