Dear <<First Name>>,

“. . . as a hen gathers her brood under her wings . . . 

This image of Jesus from Luke 13:34 is a compelling one. For some, the concept of Jesus as a mother hen may be off-putting, maybe even unsavory; for others of us, the concept radiates comfort and warmth, security and protection. If you have ever watched hens with their chicks, you may have been moved by the tenderness of the hens and by the fierceness with which they protect their young from predators. But Jesus knew something else about hens and their chicks, making the image even more powerful on second glance.

Mother hens do not actually round up any wayward chicks – she can only collect them under her wings if they come to her, if they stay close.

In this week's Gospel Text (Luke 13:31-35) Jesus reiterates his heart’s deepest desire to draw us close, to comfort and preserve us.

May this season be one in which we draw nearer to our Lord who loves us and gifts us with life. See you in worship!

Supporting People In Crisis In Ukraine

Trinity’s Global Outreach Ministry Team has decided to donate the entire allocation from the Future Fund of $6,770 to organizations that will support the people in crisis in Ukraine. Of the future fund, we will donate $4,770 to World Vision’s Ukraine fund and $2,000 to the International Rescue Committee. World Vision has been well established in Romania as well as other nearby countries for many years. In fact, many Trinity members personally know the World Vision staff there from our past mission trips. The IRC, which has been a past partner with our Presbytery, has a strong presence in Poland and great expertise in helping refugees. Since so many of those fleeing Ukraine are going to Poland and Romania, GOMT felt the Lord’s hands on us as we decided to support these organizations. If any congregation members wish to personally support these organizations, click on the following links:

Updates to Health and Safety Protocols

We are delighted to announce a change in our worship space this week - no more tape on the pews! Please note, the following health and safety guidelines will remain in place until further notice.
  • Masks (preferably disposable surgical) are to be worn indoors at all times - this goes for those who frequent the church building during the week as well.
  • No offerings will be collected, but you can give on Sundays using the QR Code available in the Sanctuary and on the livestream OR online here.
  • Those gathered for worship will exit the building (this includes the Narthex) immediately following the Postlude to greet each other outside as weather allows.
If you are experiencing symptoms, are self-isolating due to travel, or have had close contact to a confirmed positive Covid-19 case, please refrain from attending in-person worship and join us on livestream here.

Centering Ourselves for Worship

Each week, throughout the season of Lent, there will be reflection stations set up in the Narthex with materials intended to help you and your family prepare to worship God. All are encouraged to arrive early and make use of these stations. May this practice aid in centering your spirit, that you might enter the sanctuary and walk through this season in a worshipful manner.
