Trinity E.C. Mt. Joy Send Off

Greetings to All!

Well, today was our final day of serving in the youth ministry at Trinity E.C. Church in Mt. Joy, PA. It was a day of mixed emotions for us, complete with laughs, tears, hugs, and plenty of nostalgia as we looked back over our three years of service to that community of faith. The folks there truly made today memorable for us, as they sneakily prepared a video presentation reviewing our time of service (including various mission trip video clips and personal words of thanks from the youth and their families), prayed over us, gave us a scrap book with personal messages from many of the church families, and shared a potluck meal with us. It was truly a memorable day for us, and we consider ourselves richer for having served at Trinity. God was truly present throughout our three years there, and we pray God's continued presence, guidance, and power at work there in Mt. Joy. We hope that our relationship with that church continues as our life and ministry focus changes. Happy birthday to Rachel and good night!
