Hey Folks, we had a good discussion on Thursday and have chosen a new day and time for our meetings. We’ll be gathering at Trinity in Binford at 3:15 on Tuesday afternoons. We’re using The Wholeness Wheel to guide our discussions. We’re looking at spiritual wholeness, emotional wholeness, physical wholeness, intellectual wholeness, financial wholeness, social /interpersonal wholeness, vocational wholeness on an individual as well as congregational level. If our discussion last week is any indication of our weeks together then we’re in for some incredible discussions and mutual growth. All are welcome to join with us.
Here is the link for “Healthy and Whole,” the material guiding our discussions.
In case you had not yet realized, your pastors will ALWAYS say yes to helping people read, study and love the Bible. God’s Word is amazing and changes lives for the better, so we heartily endorse encountering the stories and wisdom that have shaped people for generations.
– McVille Lutheran has a weekly study (Wed at 9 am) where we are currently reading through Genesis. I was warned when I took the call to be the new associate pastor that McVille loves their study. And it’s true. We have met three times to talk about the first book in the Bible (not to mention the other weeks before when we worked our way through the letters of John). We took two days to talk about Creation and this morning we talked about Cain and Abel as well as Nephilim. Next week: Noah
– Trinity of Binford requested a Bible study and Pastor Jessica leapt at the chance (it almost came to us having to rock-paper-scissors to decide, but she won without resorting to any competition). They meet tomorrow (Thursday) for the first time at 4:30. Feel free to join in this study that will go to Christmas!
Both groups are open for any and everyone…seriously, if you wish to show up for one or more sessions (or both groups, if you are adventurous), we’ll find a chair for you!
This is the first blog post! (nothing like being obvious)
The intention of this blog is for a quick, fun, and easy way to communicate.
I’m not sure all that will be posted here, but it should be interesting. Whether pictures or thoughts about activities, plans for the future, or the occasional sermon, I hope that you will continue to read about what is going on in your parish, your church, your youth group, your confirmation class, your Sunday School, your Bible study, etc. I hope you get the idea that we want you to know what is going on, to be excited about all that we are doing in God’s name, and to help us brainstorm where and how God is leading us into the future!
The main bloggers are myself (Pastor Kara), Pastor Jessica, Theresa (parish admin) and Darla (youth director).
If you ever have anything to add, or want to post something, please email one of us and we’ll get your pictures uploaded or words inserted.
I hope you enjoy reading and keeping up with what is going on at TCM!!!!!!!
