Let's Talk Love

A sermon response by Rev. Clay Horton: In early August, my wife Errinne and I were vacationing in Santa Fe.  We were strolling down one of the beautiful city streets crowded with tourists when I noticed a black and white picture in the window of the Monroe Gallery of Photography.  The exhibit was titled, “The Long Road From Selma to Ferguson.”  I told Errinne that lunch had to wait. I grabbed her hand, and we made our way into what we would find to be a sobering gallery. ... Read More

Pastor Note: Soul Searching & What I Found

A Note from Rev. Doug Meyer: Over the past couple of weeks I have been doing some serious soul searching of how I came to know and believe certain things. The easy ones to identify were the  things I  learned from teachers, from parents, from my siblings and, fortunately, some I learned by experience.  But what about the things I learned by osmosis, that I gradually, unconsciously assimilated into my personal knowledge bank? There have been so many contributors to this... Read More

God Uses the Rehearsal

A personal testimony from Ashley Whitehead: When Pastor Daniel asked me to rehearse my testimony for Laity Sunday, I must admit, I was intimidated.  For some reason I was much more comfortable speaking in front of 100 people than rehearsing in front of the senior pastor.  I mean, here was the expert on Sunday sermons sitting in the pews listening to me!   But it wasn’t just Daniel that showed up for my rehearsal.  When I arrived in the sanctuary, another man sat...

My First Invitation to Sing

There have been very few times where I was “invited” to join in singing.  It’s not something that ever happens to me.  There were two events on the summer youth choir tour that stood out to me.    The youth choir was visiting a boy’s ranch for at risk teenage kids outside of Lampe, MO.  The boys could stay at the ranch for 18 months and learn new life skills while under the watch of trained folks with a Christian emphasis.  After we had lunch together and the...

Share the Faith. Share a Smile.

Imagine you’ve grown up in the church, and your faith is intricately woven into the fabric of your life. But you live in an assisted living facility and don’t have the ability to travel to a church on Sundays. Or worse, you see the end of your life is creeping nearer, and you want to know about this God you’ve heard of but never met. And there’s no one around to ask.        Trietsch’s Traveling Church ministry serves both these folks when we takes our faith into... Read More

Note of Appreciation from Joe Shafer

We are so honored to have had Joe on Trietsch staff for the past 18 years. We are sad to see him go because he has been such a blessing to our church and the entire community, but overjoyed to see him enjoy the retirement he deserves. Joe has a heart for the hurting, the broken, the least and the lost. He truly lives into our values of Biblical relevance, radical love and servant ministry.
