names like “Extravagance,” “Violence,” “Generosity,”
“Dark,” and “You lost me,” The Parables of Lent:
Daily Devotions on the Stories of Jesus for Lent
link ancient parables to today’s lives. The stories
are true treasures to contemplate.
Each day in Lent, you’ll be directed to a parable via
scripture, then reflections that make that parable
current, and then a prayer. Copies of this
devotional resource are available in the Narthex and
Fellowship Hall. Or, if you prefer to access
this resource on your Kindle or Nook, check out

Lenten turnaround, anyway? Our pastors will be
talking about the turnarounds of Noah (February 22),
Abraham and Sarah (March 1), the moneychangers

Strategic Plan as approved by the Congregation
Council on January 12, 2015
and as presented to the congregation at the January
25th congregational meeting:
Final plan with appendices
Where is Trinity
going? What’s our future? With Trinity’s
strategic plan presented at our congregational
meeting, our website, and through emails, the real
work to have Trinity’s goals and priorities realized
has begun. Printed copies of the full plan are
available at the information desk. We are
establishing working liaisons between the Strategic
Planning Committee and Trinity’s committees and
teams. Leadership groups will be further
defining/refining necessary action steps aimed at
attaining our goals related to Strengthening
Relationships, Making Connections, and Building
Foundations. For example, we are developing specific
communication activities as well as financial and
property strategies based on our ministry emphases,
especially with regard to small group ministries. We
will update you throughout the year with
congregational forums, and we need YOU to engage!
Our hospitalized and at-home members are
listed in the narthex and the Gathering Space tract
rack. Your prayers, cards, and visits to them are
invited so that Christ may be glorified by the
manner in which His people care for each other. If
you are hospitalized, please be sure to have someone
notify the church office since hospitals and nursing
homes no longer contact us.
Do you have a
loved one serving in the military? Help us
update our list of military personnel by contacting
Tom Notestine in the church office
Check out the art
in the Gathering Space during March—it’s all about
Camp Nawakwa! The tee shirt quilt, quilted and
tied by hand, was made by Kelly MacConnell. Kelly
and her husband, Reed, both served on staff at Camp
Nawakwa. Some of the photos are from the collections
of Stella Ludwig (a former Camp Nawakwa Director)
and Becky Enney, who are both passionate about the
value and effectiveness of church camp. There are
also pictures borrowed from the walls of the camp's
Dining Hall showing vintage photos of camp and
staff. Come support the benefit for Camp Nawakwa on
Sunday, March 22. And remember, "where faith is
enriched, the church is strengthened!"

“It’s All About That Grace” from pages
16-22 of the February 2015 issue of The Lutheran
Did you ever look around on a Sunday and wonder what
brought everybody to your church – and what keeps
them coming back? This month’s lead article in our
denominational publication tells that everybody has
a story and, although there are similarities, no two
are the same. Why people first came and why they
keep coming back reveals some of the biggest
strengths of the ELCA and its diversity. One common
thread definitely revealed is the welcoming appeal
of the Lutheran theology of grace.
If you do not have access to the articles, paper copies
will be available about two weeks in advance of the
session and may be picked up at the reception desk
in the Gathering Space. If you have any questions,
please contact class coordinators Craig Staller or
Doug Bonsall (921-1957).

for help with our homeless neighbors at the Winter
Shelter in Harrisburg. You’ll help staff the
men’s shelter at Susquehanna Harbor Safe Haven, 1805
North 12th Street, near the State Farm Show Complex.
These men truly need your compassion. We seek two
volunteers each night from March 15 through March 21
(Sunday through Saturday). Read the information

how our homebound members must feel knowing they can
no longer make it to Trinity for services.
Certainly they miss the worship,
the fellowship, and just being an in-person part of
Trinity’s family. With that in mind, you can surely
appreciate that our Visitation Ministry needs five
volunteers for the Women of Trinity homebound
visitation team. As a visitor, you’ll make one visit
a month to members who will greatly appreciate not
only the visits and conversation, but also the
flowers at Easter and the poinsettias and cookies at
Christmas. It’s not much to ask, is it, to keep the
Trinity connection strong? Please volunteer NOW by
emailing Ginny at
email@example.com or by calling her at
seriously good cause that needs volunteers: On
Saturday, March 28, from 8am to noon, Pink Hands
of Hope needs volunteers to help take the winter
clothing off the racks and out to a giant bag sale
in the parking lot, and then to restock the racks
with fresh clothing for spring. It’s only four hours
and well worth the time. Pink Hands of Hope Thrift
Store is located at 5325 East Trindle Road in
Mechanicsburg. Let Maggie Ackerman know you can help
by emailing her at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her at
Overseas Military Coupon Project:
The Coupon Ministry is alive and well and in need of
volunteers! The Coupon Ministry collects
manufacturers’ coupons and sends them to our
military bases overseas. Base coordinators make the
coupons available to US Military families for use in
the commissary. Coupons can be recently expired.
Here’s what to do: First, clip coupons each week and
put them in the collection box marked “Coupons”
inside the Gathering Space doors. Second, help us
sort the coupons into two groups: food and non-food.
Call Kelly Rice at 717-379-4543; or email Sophie
Rice, Coupon Ministry Coordinator, at
email@example.com. The families really
appreciate these coupons, so please help. If you
have helped with the sorting of coupons in the past,
and still want to help, please also let Sophie know.
Thank you so much for your help and service!
