Elders are called to discern God’s will and direction for our church. As the heads of various ministry teams, elders work with members in the congregation and other Trinity staff to see through Trinity’s day-to-day operations, programs, ministries, missions, and finances. Elders gather once a month for a formal Session meeting and are committed to their area of ministry for three years.

Session Update June-July 2018
Construction on the campus is completed and renovations on the church office are nearing completion. The prayer garden outside Munzing Hall has been finished and plans for renovating the church patio are being discussed while costs are being carefully considered. Scaffolding is up in front of the stained glass of the sanctuary in order to address some structural work on support beams that have suffered termite damage and dry rot. While the scaffolding is in place, any needed repairs to the stained-glass window and painting in the area will be done.
A new phone system at Trinity has been installed and is working well. The system has the capacity for future enhancements, if needed. In addition, the internet system on campus has been upgraded with faster speeds which will allow for streaming on campus. Enhancement of the Wi-Fi network is in progress and will include setting up the system in the Center and in the Welcome Center.
The Nominating Committee continues its work to discern who God is calling as the next Elders and Deacons for Trinity. Interviews of potential leaders are underway and will continue until all of the new leaders are selected. The slate of new officers will be presented to the congregation for election at the Annual Congregational meeting on Sunday evening, November 4.
Rebecca Holz has been hired as the new Connections Coordinator. Rebecca will be working with Director of Adult Education Marsha Butler and will work closely with small groups.
Trinity has begun the search to find a new full-time Director of Missional Engagement. Please pray for the search team as they discern who God is calling to fill this role.
Session traditionally takes the month of July off from meeting and will meet next on August 15, starting with a barbecue in Trinity’s “backyard.”
Session meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month, with occasional exceptions. For a complete copy of the minutes of a session meeting, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 714.505.6254 x102.
