Beginning March 5, the church enters a period in our liturgical calendar called Lent. Lent this year is the 40 days between March 5 and April 12 (Sundays are excluded) during which Christians focus on the spiritual practices of prayer, scripture reading, fasting and other spiritual disciplines intended to focus our attention on our lives and how we live them as seen through the lens of God’s sacrificial love for us. I encourage you to join with me and the faith community of Trinity Lutheran in reading the Gospel of Matthew in a disciplined reading plan. The entire gospel is broken into daily reading segments with accompanying ideas for you to ponder. Join us in the practice of disciplined reading, prayer and meditation.

We arrived as strangers in Boonsboro in 2009 and marvel at how our lives have been enriched by our affiliation with Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. Trinity is a Christian community that practices what Jesus taught: spreading the Gospel message of love and forgiveness, providing support and assistance to those in need, teaching our youth about God’s love and encouraging them to grow and develop spiritually. We relish our membership in a loving, supportive and welcoming church family and enjoy the company of so many new-found friends. How different our lives might be, had we not found Trinity.
Remember as a child, the little poem that used your hands to make the church and the steeple? I love opening the doors at 64 S. Main Street to see all of the people. Inside I find a community of folks who will encourage, challenge, love and support each other through peaks and perils. A relationship with Jesus Christ and faith practices have to really be a personal choice, a personal walk. That walk is much more the merrier when made in community. There are many styles of worship, denominations and traditions associated with Christianity, and I feel as though the environment at Trinity brings together the best for me and the best from me.
I joined Trinity 35 years ago with my daughters, and we have been blessed with an awesome minister who leads worship and participates in many of our church activities such as youth fellowship, music ministries, Sunday School, and Bible study for all ages. Today, along with our grandchildren, we love being a part of such a caring church family and participating in outreach programs like Micah’s Backpack.
We’ve been at Trinity for over 8 years and couldn’t be happier. I’ve felt Trinity is a great place for me to serve others and to utilize whatever talents and abilities God has given me. And, what a wonderful place to raise my children – they are truly loved here.
