Labor Day weekend marks the beginning of fall for many people. Schools have started and long vacations are over. September will mark the return of our Wednesday Night Suppers and programs (indoors!). Either on September 12 or 19, the choir will process led by acolytes and the crucifer at the 11am service.

These events do not just spring to life. There is planning, communication, training and coordination that contribute to the fruitfulness of any church ministry effort. In August, we will train greeters and ushers
and teach a set of trainers who will train other volunteers throughout the year. We will train a new class of acolytes and crucifers as well as a team that will coordinate the programs after the Wednesday night suppers.

In September we will train volunteers to be worship assistants, who will learn not only aspects of leading worship but to be more comfortable offering a morning prayer or the children’s sermon. Our church leadership will be asking directly for volunteers to serve in these vital ministries over the next six weeks. Look for additional information as it becomes available.

May God bless Trinity UMC,

Rev. Joseph James
