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

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.

Magazine, the magazine
responsible for “Simply the Best” awards you’ve seen
at area businesses. Stella was named the magazine’s
Volunteer of the Month for her tutoring work at a
Harrisburg inner-city elementary school. You can

Congratulations are definitely in order. Stella is
indeed “simply the best.”
while you’re still thinking about Stella and her
good work, remember to donate gently used books
that she and fellow Trinity Tutors (all amazing
volunteers as well!) will give to first and second
graders at Harrisburg inner-city schools to read
over the summer. Place the books in the labeled
green bin that’s against the left wall of the

for Dorcas! When the Ugandan Kids Choir visited
Trinity this past fall, we were struck by their
cause and their message. So the Sunday School

school expenses for the entire year!
So far we have raised $247.31. Will you join us? Add
your donations in an envelope marked “Dollars for
Dorcas” and give them to Kelly Falck or any Sunday

Here’s what to do: First, clip coupons each week and
put them in the collection box marked “Coupons”

sort the coupons into two groups: food and non-food.
Call Kelly Rice at 717-379-4543; or email Sophie
