Year in Review 2015: Trinity Lutheran Church

By Barbara Brenner

It was another busy year for Trinity.

Easter season included five services – Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday communion, Palm Sunday with procession, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

This year’s music camp was a great success both for our young cast members and for the teens who worked as crew. The Rockslinger and His Greatest Hit was based on the story of David and Goliath and was performed as part of the annual Point Roberts Art and Music Festival. Thanks to the generous donation of time and equipment by Jonathan Quick, the performers all had mics this year.

In July, Pastor Gina Gaudet returned from a year away and is again sharing the pulpit with Father Chuck Cannon and Pastor Jean Barrington. In response to a request from the music camp crew for ongoing opportunities to meet together, Gina and camp director Tasha Neufeld created a monthly Philosopher’s Café.

The café is open the second Saturday of each month at 6:30 p.m. for youth 15 to 20 years of age. The first two cafés were very successful and the program continues in January.

Another new program is a non-traditional service of music, meditation, reflection and fellowship that takes place the third Saturday evening of each month.

In August we celebrated Pastor emeritus Ernie and Lola Loreen’s 65th wedding anniversary following church. They are an inspiration to us all.

This year’s Trinity Concert Series was the biggest ever, including two for the new Point Roberts Library. Dick and Lucy Williams hosted a reception following each concert.

The Trinity Community Choir presented a total of three concerts this year – spring, Christmas and a joint concert of ABBA with St. David’s Community Choir in Tsawwassen. The two concerts in Point Roberts were followed by spectacular champagne and dessert receptions choreographed by Dorothy Bayley.
