Trinity is offering an online giving option designed to simplify weekly giving in our congregation.

Electronic giving will enable every household or individual to make their church offering using electronic funds transfer or credit card.

You may already be using online bill pay for your mortgage, car payment, or insurance premium through an automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account. Many of you also have used your credit cards to purchase goods online through Amazon, eBay, or a number of other sites. We have teamed up with myEoffering to enable you to use the same process to give our offering electronically from your bank account, credit or debit cards.

There is no cost to you for this new giving option. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. And when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue uninterrupted.

Thank you for considering this new giving opportunity.

SUNDAY'S BEGINNING March 1st            


Please allow me to introduce what I am tentatively calling “The Good Soil Project.” The name comes from our Sunday Night Gathering’s work in the Gospel of Mark. In case you don’t know, what we are doing there is simply moving through the Gospel of Mark using the headings from the NIV Editors as our guide. It has been a fruitful time.

Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? The farmer sows the word. Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop — some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”

Obviously, we don’t want to be a path where Satan comes and snatches the Word away. And we don’t want to be rocky so that nothing of the Word takes root. And we want to be absolutely sure that we aren’t a patch of thorns! (I think this is the most dangerous area a church can be, and many are! Because the thorn patch of temporal worry is a land of temptation to brood over things that, in the God-born visions of Eternity, Loving God, Loving Neighbor, and Growing Toward Perfection do not matter!). ​This leaves us with being a place of “Good Soil” where people hear the Word, accept it, and it produces a fruitful crop.

I wrote that our goal is, “[B]eing engaged and growing disciples … boots on the ground where God has us gathered and working together as Trinity Church, to be the Members of Trinity and the Disciples of Jesus Christ that God calls us to be.” We need Good Soil to do that.
