Dear Church Family,

Happy New Year!! Here we are entering a new year AND a new decade together. Remember:“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”2 Corinthians 5:17There are so many things to look forward to. As I look back on the last decade, I look at all the changes God has brought into my life. This past decade was the one in my life that brought me to Trinity, and I am so grateful for this assignment. This is home, and I love each and every one of you. I now look forward to continuing my education so that I can bring the word of God to you in many different ways.

Now is the time for you to look back at the last decade. Remember all of the happy times in those years. Weddings, births, reunions, and personal accomplishments, all have fond memories wrapped up in them. This new year, this new decade is a time for all of us to make a brand-new start. If you don’t already do this, set aside a time for devotion and prayer time. You can even set up an area in your home that brings a sense of calmness and serenity with a candle, a small fountain, an angel, anything you like and make this your special place to spend time with God. Maybe read the Upper room each day. Or plan to read The Bible in a year. If you have a smartphone or computer there are many apps and websites that can guide you through the process and you will reach December 31, 2020 having read the entire Bible!

So, let’s make the new year and decade one that we spend more time with God, and our lives will be fuller and more content.Blessings to everyone,Pastor Steffani
