At the July 14th voters meeting of Trinity Lutheran Church the congregation voted unanimously in favor of moving forward with the purchase of the open lot across the street from the church at a cost of $90,000.
Regarding the vision for the property, Pastor Tinetti wrote in a recent Inklings:
"I envision a place that brings together people of all ages: to eat together, to play together, to pray together, to serve together. I imagine this new part of Trinity’s campus turning into a hub of neighborhood activity. I see outdoor picnics and movie nights. I picture young and old playing yard games (wiffle ball!). I think of Vacation Bible School and maybe even concerts or a farmers’ market. In short, I envision an open space becoming a beloved place for our community: a blank canvas upon which God can paint His beautiful work of redemption through us."
Fundraising efforts have been underway. We are pleased to report that as of July 28th more than $80,000 has already been pledged. Thanks be to God for His provision and the generosity of His people!
While we are close to reaching our goal, we have not yet arrived. Please prayerfully consider helping to get us across the finish line. Any proceeds received that exceed the cost of the purchase price will be earmarked for the future development and utilization of the property.
You can give online (mark it as "Other" with a note indicating that it is for the Kladder property), or send a check to church, noting in the memo line the purpose of the gift.
This is an exciting time for Trinity Lutheran, as we continue striving to share God's heart by bringing neighbors together in Christ. This is the next step in realizing that mission.
