Trinity Calls Pastor Jon Lobos

During the weekend of June 26th & 27th, the Search Committee hosted a Candidate Weekend for Pastor Jon Lobos, the recommended candidate for the position of Senior Pastor, and his wife Merrilee. Both met many of you at the events during the weekend that included a breakfast, a congregational dinner and a combined worship service. Jon and Merrilee commented on how welcomed they felt, and how the members of Trinity made them feel comfortable and engaged them in conversation during every event.

Following the worship service, a Business Meeting was conducted to vote on calling Jon to be our Pastor. The vote was UNANIMOUS to call Pastor Jon Lobos as the next Senior Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church. Pastor Jon graciously accepted the offer, and his first Sunday with us will be August 22nd.

The Penny Project

The Helping Hands ABW of Trinity is sponsoring the National Women's "Penny Project", to aid children living in poverty. The goal is to raise a penny to represent each of the estimated 14,000,000 children living in poverty in the U.S. and Puerto Rico by April 2010. The funds donated by Trinity will be used to aid 1,800 of those children who live in Stark County. There is a container in the lobby for your loose change to help reach their goal and to help reach out to a needy child. 

Pastoral Search Team update

The Search Committee continues to meet every Monday night to work on the task of identifying candidates to potentially be called as Pastor to lead our congregation. They completed the 2009 Curch Profile, and bound copies are ready for distribution to candidates. They received two sets of candidate packages from Rev. Bob Cassady (ABC-Ohio Minister of Congregational Development Central/Northeast) that contained 36 profiles.  After reviewing the profiles individually and as a group, the Search Committee has selected 10 candidates to contact. Initial contact letters will be sent out the week of January 24.  Hopefully, we will receive interest in our vacancy allowing us to exchange profiles and information with the candidates.

Hope Community Church moving to a new home

Hope Community Church, who has been sharing our church facilities for the past two years, has gotten the opportunity to move into a building of their own. They will occupy the entire first floor of a building near the intersection of 7th Street and Main Street. They will be moving in during the last half of February. We hope to continue the relationship as we plan to partner for events with them throughout the year. We wish Pastor Gary and Monica Plauger and the entire Hope family the best and pray for success in their ministry as they start the next phase of their journey.
