A Message from Pastor Mike: “Thanksbreathing”

In his famous work, “8 Weeks to Optimal Health”, Dr. Andrew Weil asked readers to do many things. And many of his ideas were ahead of their time. For example? He told readers to go through their cupboards and throw away anything containing partially hydrogenated oils. Many said this was ridiculous. Most don’t say that […]

Pastor Matt’s Message: “Clear the Decks”

Pastor Matt’s Message: “Clear the Decks”

I stand in the empty sanctuary and picture the summer that was. Children were welcomed in baptism. Young couples were united in marriage. Old friends were laid to their last rest. The room rocked to the sounds of VBS songs, and choir camp songs, and worship songs. Mission trips were commissioned and sent out, and […]

A Message from Pastor Mike: “To Everything There Is A Season…”

And what a summer season it has been!  One of the happiest, most successful VBS experiences ever, watching our teams at work in Haiti and Philadelphia, service projects abounding at church, and (upon this writing), choir camp and a joyous chicken dinner on the horizon! Oh—and those flat J.J.’s?  A laugh every day and a […]

A Message from Pastor Mike: “And He Hung His Head In Shame”

As I write this, we are all still reeling from the events in Orlando. Not surprisingly, the faith of the Muslim people has again been called into question, and there have even been videos on Facebook of a radical Imam voicing support for the killing of LGTB people. What we are less likely to embrace […]

A Message from Pastor Mike: “SUMMER”

As I type this, my son is pulling in. College year over. Summer begun. It’s time to (try to) catch our breath! This school year has been a great, great one for our congregation, and I know that life away from church has been busy for all of you as well! So, here’s hoping that, […]

A Message from Pastor Matt: “Looking Forward”

Happy Easter! I hope that it is warm and that things are green and growing when you read this. Last December 6th seems like a long time ago from the perspective of spring. I was called to Trinity as a pastor that day. It was cold, and I was sick, and it was the holiday […]

Pastor Mike’s Message: “Love Your Church”

Here comes a New Year! There’s a lot that’s “new” this year. A new pastor, the last part of our “new” renovations soon to begin, and talk of new activities designed to take our church into new areas of growth in the gospel! Of course, we’re hanging on to most of the “old” as well […]

Pastor Mike’s Message: “A Celebration! (And A Reminder)”

People keep coming up to me and saying the same thing. “We haven’t been there. We’re so sorry. We’ve just been so busy…” I get it—in our crazy world family time is precious, and summer is often the one good chance to grab it. So…I’m not into guilt.  I hope that you can CELEBRATE the […]

Trinity Recently Regained A Part of Our History!

You may have noticed a hand-written deed, dated January 12, 1833, framed and mounted in the hallway across from Pastor Jan’s office.  If you look closely at the spidery writing, you can read the original deed from Jacob Rohrer (one of “Mountjoy’s” first landowners) to a group of Trustees of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in […]

It’s Sunday morning; you’re hurrying to make it to worship on time.  You arrive safely, settle in, and then it hits you… “I forgot the offering.” Or, how often has Pastor Mike announced a special appeal for an outreach project, and you would like to make a contribution, but you don’t have any cash on […]
