and as presented to the congregation at the January
25th congregational meeting:

Strategic Plan Update
Report: Moving Right Along. You can
see our end-of-2016 status report regarding our strategic plan (click
here), or we'll make printed copies available from the
office. In summary, we are making good progress. There are so
many different efforts toward undertaking Christ's ministries
for ourselves and others, as we report. More, of course, needs
to be done to meet our goals in various areas. Our current
three-year plan ends at the end of 2017, and we will develop
goals later this year for guiding Trinity into the future. Our
plan now also includes steps toward building a more
participatory culture of expected volunteerism here at Trinity.
Another new area recognizes our desire to better define our
evangelism ministries and their impact.

shawls from Trinity are available! If you know
someone (friend, relative, neighbor, community

surgery, or going through times of concern or

times of celebration, like the birth of a child. Our

sponsor, but table sponsorship is also a great way
for Trinity business owners to connect with
Trinity members, other Trinity businesses, and the
Christian community who will attend our Soiree.
Through a table sponsorship, you will identify
yourself as a business that is operated by someone
who shares in the faith. For $150, you'll get two
Soiree tickets, acknowledgement at the table, and
the opportunity to provide promotional material for
a Trinity Business Community information bag. For
more details, please reach out to Dona Norris at
email@example.com or 717-773-3349. Deadline
for inclusion is March 15.
Trinity Tutors will soon

St., Mechanicsburg, will have a book sale on Saturday, February 11,
from 9 am to 2 pm and on Sunday, February 12, from 1 to 3 pm. On
Sunday, you can buy a bag of books for just $10! This would be a
great source of books to give to the kids in Harrisburg School
District. Call Holly Frymoyer at 717-576-5964 with any questions.

devoted to the beloved 23rd Psalm, and how its
