Worship Sundays @ 8 AM - 9:30 AM - 11 AM

Lord, what do YOU want to do through me?

Jennifer Cooley shares how her journey started with Trietsch and how she plans to support UNSHACKLED:

Trietsch and the community of believers have blessed our family beyond measure and we are forever grateful for that.

When Eric and I first began attending Trietsch, our oldest Meghan, now 9 years old, was an infant. We were both at different points in our faith. If we hadn’t felt so welcomed and accepted by Trietsch, we may not have been so inclined to jump in and become a part of it. Therefore, I would like to personally thank you, the congregation, for your dedication and leadership to making this church so great.

Thanks to all of you who have been here from the beginning working hard to build this church up. You have started Sunday school classes, ministries and much more that have made a huge impact on this community which has flourished into love and hope all over this world.

At this point, most of you have received an informational brochure about our Unshackled capital campaign. It is with great honor and gratitude that I am able to announce that my husband Eric and I, along with Paul and Kim Beck, are the Co-chairs for this Capital Campaign.

I truly believe the Unshackled campaign has the potential to make us a closer church family and a stronger force in the community. 

Attached to your brochure, was a window cling with the prayer “Lord, what do YOU want to do through me?”

Consider placing this somewhere you look frequently, such as your bathroom mirror. We ask that you pray this prayer daily. My hope for this prayer is that it will allow our eyes to open and our hearts to feel how our Heavenly Father can use us to better this church, this community and other parts of the world that are in despair and in need of Christ’s love.

Our goal for this campaign is to feed more, clothe more, teach more and love more.

In order to maximize this goal we need to erase Trietsch’s financial burden.  I believe this is possible.  I am constantly surrounded by the loving hearts and hands of our church family.  That same love is what drew Eric and I in, almost a decade ago, and transformed our lives.

John Wesley, whose beliefs are the foundation and core of the Methodist church, spoke these profound words: 

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can.”

Imagine how many more lives we could touch if we just let go of what was holding us back and allowed God to take over?
