Dear Trinity,

Pastor Amy Waelchli
Pastor Amy Waelchli

I’ve been excited and anxious to get together for in person worship! In the beginning, I was determined that our first Sunday back would be an Easter celebration! I’ve since come to grasp the reality that worshiping in person will be quite different. I’m planning, with help, input, and approval from the council, what we might expect as we return to worship. These plans are based on the Badger Bounce Back and are subject to change.

Because we’re a living community of Christ that takes seriously Jesus’ command to “Love our Neighbor” as much as we love ourselves, we wait. For the record, ‘waiting’ is not my spiritual gift. ☹ But prayer is…and joy…and hope. So I’m keeping busy!

How are you keeping busy? I so enjoyed hearing from you last week. Are you in prayer too? I’ve been praying daily at 7 am & 7 pm and hope you will join me this week in particular.

Prayer for 7 am: O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for 7 pm: Lord, as the day draws to a close I lift before you all those who love me: my family, my friends, my church, my Pastor. Bless them too! Give strength to those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit because of Covid-19. Teach me, everyday, to love my neighbors as much as I love myself, and to love you above all things! Amen.

I’ll meet you in spirit at these appointed prayer times.

With love,

Pastor Amy

Sanitizing Church

As we all would like to be able to get back together, we need to make sure we sanitize the church. We are having an issue securing sanitizer and sanitizing items. They are impossible to order any online. If everyone could keep their eyes out for these items we greatly appreciate it.
Thank you,

Join us for LIFT Lead worship on 5/24!
