TRANSITION TEAM UPDATE – 9/28/17

The Exploring Our Spiritual Gifts Questionnaire is still open for submissions. Since the sixty-eight responses were recorded, we have received ten more. If you submit your gifts by October 22, they can be added to the total composite before our Evolve Event on October 29. THANK YOU!

Sunday, September 24 in worship we celebrated community by celebrating who we are as Trinitarian Congregational Church. There was a special insert that shared a few of the statistics of Tri Con, along with the top trending spiritual gifts of this community of faith. You can view this insert below.

About twenty-five people attended the Evolve 2017 forum after the worship service on September 24, at which the Transition Team presented the six priorities that are emerging from their investigative work with Tri Con members and groups. If you would like to receive this list, please contact either Jane Turner Michael or Jean Vandergrift.

To keep up with our congregational progress on the Evolve 2017 process, refer to the Transition Timeline above.

PLEASE complete the Questionnaire-Exploring Our Spiritual Gifts by 9/18!  Here’s how:

You have three options to complete the questionnaire (choose what works for you!):

  1. ONLINE VERSION 
  2. DOWNLOAD AND PRINT a paper version of the questionnaire. 
  3. Pick up a paper version from the church office.
    You may want to read it and treat it as a worksheet, pausing and editing it as you go, before you submit it.
    Please turn in paper versions to church office.

 

 

**And don’t hesitate to ask for assistance from the church office or any of the people listed below.**

We want to receive as many completed questionnaires as possible by September 18th, so that we can compile the results and celebrate TriCon’s spiritual gifts in the worship service on September 24. IF the 18th is not possible for you, we still want you to complete the questionnaire and turn it in as part of the fall season of Evolve 2017.       THANK YOU!

The Transition Team invites everyone at TriCon to explore their Spiritual Gifts by completing the questionnaire. Doing so is meant to be an introspective and prayerful exercise. Please follow the link below to the online questionnaire, read through the instructions, and take some time to consider what God-given gifts you possess.

If you have already identified your gifts on the paper worksheet version of the questionnaire, you may now go to this link to submit them electronically.

When we discover our God-given gifts and our particular place of service as individuals, we experience greater fulfillment and the church becomes even stronger.

Thank you!

Photos from May 7th Potluck Dinner

Our May 7th Potluck dinner was enjoyed by an intergenerational crowd of 93 people! A skit by our TriCon players set the tone for us to begin to explore our history together. It was a lively, productive evening and copies of a report of the event are available in the links above and in the Parish Hall.
