1 TRINITY PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Trinity Tidings Page Trinity Tidings SEPTEMBER,, 2016 For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 Live Free Dear Friends, We were created to be free! Our worth is not found in what we have, what we wear, or in our popularity. Our worth is found in the God who created us and who wants us to experience the full wonder and abundance of God s creation. It is only when we appreciate what God has given us and live our lives on a mission to be good stewards of these gifts that we can experience the freedom God always intended us to have. October 2 will be the beginning of a four-week stewardship emphasis for our congregation called Live Free. We will learn how to become more faithful stewards as we explore what it means to: be free from the money trap; be free to be rich; be free from the uncertainty of riches; and be free to take hold of the life that really is life. Each week we will focus on one of these themes during worship in creative and inviting ways. We hope you will be present each week. And then, on October 30, Celebration Sunday, we will join one another in presenting our estimates or commitments of giving in support of the ministry and mission to which we are called as the Trinity Presbyterian Church congregation and then celebrate with a fellowship luncheon after worship. I Timothy 6:19 says to set our hopes on God, living richly in a deeper sense, thus storing up for [ourselves] the treasure of a good foundation for the future. In Greek the same word means both treasure and foundation. So this quality of living is a priceless treasure and also the solid foundation upon which we can build our individual lives and our life as a community of faith here at Trinity. In your personal prayers and as you gather in fellowship with others, please remember to invite God s guidance as through this special emphasis we consider how God is calling us to Live Free. In Christian fellowship, Hugh Hamilton, Pastor, and Stephen Takeuchi, Stewardship Team Chair

2 Page 2 Trinity Tidings Dear Friends, Thank you so very much for all your prayers for our nephew David this past year and a half. I can t begin to tell you what a blessing it has been for my sister Marcella. His passing this past Thursday has left us grieving for him, but he is no longer suffering. In his last hours he was surrounded by his three children, aunts, cousins and friends. My sister thank you again as do I. Becky & Terry (friends of Jill Clark) Dear Trinity, I have arrived safely back home without much problem. Home is good. Everyone was happy to see me. I had to keep explaining every time to everyone on how everything went. It's great because it makes me recall the memories. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you, Ginger, for masterminding this trip with the help of Milly (in South Africa) and the Trinity Church. I do not have the perfect words to describe how this opportunity has impacted and changed my life. I come out of the U.S. as a grown man, developed, motivated, driven and drawn into doing so much for my community. I motivate you to continue the amazing work you do to change young peoples' lives and give them a chance at a better future. Through education in our country, there's no excuse. I will continue updating you about the things I will be doing with the assistance of the Church for the Gugulethu community and the things I will do for my University community in Cape Town. Once again, thank you. Regards, Siya Boto Trinity Presbyterian Women Fall Coffee Guest Speaker: Autumn Beck Blackledge Our Fall Coffee will provide a unique opportunity to become better informed about domestic violence in our community. Our guest speaker will be attorney Autumn Beck Blackledge, who will offer her views on How Domestic Violence is a Chronic Problem in Escambia County. Autumn is a family law attorney, published author, mother of five, and the daughter of Trinity members Greg and Jan Beck. She also serves as a board member at Favor House of Northwest Florida. All Trinity ladies are invited to this informative gathering, which will be held on September 6, a Tuesday, at 10 a.m. in the church parlor. The coffee also offers an opportunity for a glimpse of our missions and ministries, and to usher in our coming year of activities with Presbyterian Women. Refreshments will be provided by our Coordinating Team. Plan to come and enjoy the fellowship, faith and friendships central to Presbyterian Women.

Grief Support Group How do you understand grief when your heart is broken by the death of a loved one? To survive and live forward, those who grieve must find answers. Beyond the Broken Heart is a support group for those who are grieving the death of a loved one and are in need of a community to share the loneliness of grief. Scriptural wisdom will be used to explore the issues of grief and offer spiritual encouragement for a life of renewed hope and joy. The group will also offer some specific coping strategies to guide the way back to fullness of life. If you are grieving the death of a loved one, please join us on the journey through grief. Meeting Dates: Mondays from Sept. 14 Nov. 21, 2106 Time: 3-5:00 PM Location: Trinity Parlor Leaders: Dale Zorn, Sally Zorn, Jean Norman, Sue Coleman Please Sally at or call to leave a message Legacy Fund We are continuing to highlight the difference that the Legacy fund and Trinity have made locally, nationally and internationally. Last month you may remember that we looked at a joint project with ECARE, Little Rock Baptist Church and Trinity. This month we would like to discuss Legacy Grant Application to replace and upgrade the Pastors furniture. In 2015, the Personnel Committee sponsored a $7, application to replace worn and dated furniture in the senior and associate Pastors offices to improve functionality and appearance. With the number of visitors to the pastors in their offices and the meetings held by the pastors in their offices, the furniture was showing its age. Replacement had been long overdue and needed to provide our pastors with inviting and functional offices. In August of 2015, the Session approved this grant request giving our pastors the functional décor that they need. Please watch for this column in the months ahead to learn more about the difference the Legacy Fund is making. If you have suggestions for future initiatives funded by the Legacy Fund, please talk to a member of the staff, session or legacy committee. Please remember that Legacy Funds are dedicated to projects outside the normal Church budget. To learn more about legacy fund priorities go to our webpage at trinitypcola.org/moneymatters. Legacy Committee: Jan Beck, Jean Norman, Steve Takeuchi, Bob Palmer, Giles Yokel and Leah McCreary. Ex Officio members are Hugh Hamilton, Ruth White and Sharon Robbins.

11 STEWARDSHIP I AM A PERCENT! Page 11 Trinity Tidings I am a percent. I can help you live a fuller life. There are one hundred of me. If you live all one hundred of me selfishly, You will soon realize that your life is unsatisfactory, But, if you use some of me in time, talent and treasure for others, Then you will find a satisfaction in life that is unknown, When you keep all of me for yourself. As a percent of your time, I can help others, your family, your community and your church. As a percent of talent, I can be used to enhance the work of your community, your church, your country. As a percent of your treasure, I can go where you cannot go; I can provide a service you cannot provide; I can feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, and share the Gospel of love. As a percent I can help you live life abundantly. I can help your church become what you really want it to be. I can help your church do what Christ calls it to do. How can I do all this? Well, it is simple. Ask yourself, How much of me do you now use of your time, talent and treasure. Then make the commitment of a percent 1, 2, 3 or more. Set growth in giving goals. Take a step at a time, upwards. Invest in hope, test your faith, attempt much for Christ. Lift others burdens. Trust God. To make it possible for you to do this, use me. I am a percent of your time, talent and treasure.
