Growing Together in Faith

Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church

A congregation of the ELCA in Tipton, Iowa

Letter from Visioning Committee

Listening to Longings and Losses Service
Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church

July 14, 2024
10:00 AM

The Vision to Action team (Pastor Marcia Carrier, Kim Pelzer, Susan Stephens, and Sally Kruse) will lead a session during worship on Sunday, July 14 to help guide worshipers in a spiritual practice designed to give us space for grieving losses and building trust in God’s direction for the future. The session will be framed according to the basic structure of a lament psalm. We’ll be discussing the following questions:
● What’s something that used to happen (or used to be true) in the
congregation that you wish would return?
● What’s one thing you fear might be lost as our congregation moves into the future?
● What is something positive we have learned about ourselves and our congregation in the past year?
● What is one thing we want ourselves/our congregation to be in the future?

The mission team from Zion United Church of Christ in Lowden will also be guiding a similar discussion with their congregation. Pastor Kuckuck will lead Trinity and Zion teams in late July or early August as we study the longings and losses of both congregations and continue in the discernment process.
