Ponderings for July 16 2019

“Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team!” 
I heard that song all day long as Master Creator LEGO Camp kicked off yesterday at Trinity. Many excited kids are having a truly fun and Christ-centered experience this week as they sing about the awesomeness of being part of the Lord’s team.
“Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team!” 
We all experienced the power of that song Sunday afternoon as we enjoyed a fabulous picnic and baptisms at the lake. All those who are part of the Deacon/Deaconess team served us so well! The food preparation, the organization of all the details, and the behind-the-scenes work by everyone involved was awesome indeed!
The meaning of this song was seen so clearly on the first day of LEGO Camp as the entire Trinity staff pitched in to put on a wonderful program for the many youngsters. From rallying the children en masse into the big room, to working the registration tables, to teaching the classes, to planning the entire event—your Trinity staff was great. It is so cool to be part of that team!
On August 18, we will hear from that same staff as they describe their hopes and dreams for their ministry areas in the year(s) to come. Lives will be blessed as those plans come to fruition and Christ will be glorified as the church accomplishes his loving will “on earth as it is in heaven.” It will take a full and committed team for our ministries to accomplish everything we can dream of. It would be awesome if you were part of that team. Would you begin praying how you might in fact be a part of the Trinity ministry team? That would be more than cool—it would be (all together now) awesome!
“Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team!” 
What a privilege it is to be a part of and lead this beautiful team called Trinity Church.
