Not long ago we were earnestly praying and searching for a new Rector that would (1) attract new members, (2) make Holy Trinity by the Lake more relevant in our community, (3) increase community outreach, and (4) provide parishioners with much needed pastoral care. These were the prayers and expectations based on the completed 2013 Parish Survey.
Our prayers and expectations continue to become realities. The Lord graciously responded by leading us to call Father Keith Turbeville. Working together with parishioners, Heads of Ministries, and Vestry, Fr. Keith has set into motion a series of actions and strategic plans for Holy Trinity by the Lake. During the past two years since arrival, your church membership has increased by 75% to over 400 members. Participation in Sunday Christian education programs has tripled to a current level of 40 Adults and 40 Youth. Community Outreach has more than doubled to a current year Budget of $12,000. Our Parish Hall has been enhanced at the expense of over $80,000. We truly have become transformed, and are living into our calling of being “A church on the move, Sharing The Light of Christ:”
Our congregation is rich in faith, in love, in joyous life experience and has always cared for the well being of one another as well as the world outside our walls. We understand that God’s blessings to us as His stewards are boundless, so whatever we are able to return to our church in the furtherance of His mission will determine what more He can entrust to each of us in that effort now and in the future. If you would like to make a pledge for 2016 you can download and print out the pledge card, fill it out and place it in the offering plate. Pledge cards are also available in the pews and in the narthex.
