October 2020 Blog

What an incredible month we have had as a church!!!  Even in the middle of a pandemic, and a fearful time of a lot of unknowns in our country, we are seeing God move in an extraordinary way!!  I am so thankful to be a part of a church that does not look at what we cannot do, but instead focuses on what we can continue to do so that we can take the good news of the gospel to our community. 

Jesus told His disciples in Matthew 9:37-38, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.  So, pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”

We must continue to be a sending church!!  Sending “workers,” or as we say here at Trinity, “Kingdom Influencers,” into the “fields” (our community) to go out sharing the Good News!! 

Remember our mission as a church is, “Together We are a reaching, discipling and sending church impacting generations for Christ!”  It is the Great Commission that Jesus left for us to execute as His Church, so let’s continue to be faithful with the mission at hand here in Canadian County!

Over the last few months here at Trinity, we have seen God continuing to do such incredible things!  Let me share with you a few huge “wins” we’ve seen along the way. Always remember, every number that you see below has a name, that name has a story, and that story ends with a destiny!!  Ministry and the Great Commission are ALL about people!!  That is what we are about here at Trinity!!  So church, celebrate with me over a few things on how God is using us together to make an impact in our community #TogetherWe:
 
  • October 3rd and 4th – Trinity Women hosted the Flourish mini-conference & worship night!! We had hundreds of women gather at our church to be encouraged, challenged by the word of God and leave refreshed. 
  • October 7th – Trinity Students hosted our first ever Dodgeball event!! We saw 327 students show up and 22 of them said YES to JESUS!!!  C’mon somebody!!
  • October 15th – At our Men’s Steak Dinner we saw 446 men gather in our building and 13 men said YES to Jesus, along with many other decisions for baptism, small groups and information on joining Trinity!
  • We have also seen people start to come back in the room to worship with us, along with watching our online ministry continue to grow weekly. In September, 89% of what we were seeing in attendance, Pre- Covid19, are now back in the room, along with having over 3,000 views of our services each week online through our online E-campus!! 
  • Growth Track has averaged 26 new people going through it in the month of September!! JUST WOW! That’s 26+ new families that are getting connected into our church and growing in their faith!!
  • Through Growth Track we are seeing people get connected and discipled. We have launched several new small groups due to this incredible growth!! 
  • We are seeing more and more members each week step up and join our Serve Team here at Trinity to find a place to serve in weekly!! We don’t want you to come and just attend; we want you to be a part of the family along with us by serving in the body of Christ!! 
  • In September, we also launched the “TOGETHER WE JOURNEY” and as of today, we have brought in $307,678.60. Trusting the Lord that we will continue to be obedient in our weekly tithe (10% of all the Lord gives you that you give back to the Lord each month) and that we will continue to give over and above our tithe with an offering (that which is over your tithe) to the Together We Center that prayerfully we will be able to break ground in January 2021!!  This is truly amazing Church!!  Let’s keep it going!!
  • Just a reminder, that our next “Big Give Sunday” for the TOGETHER WE JOURNEY, is coming up on December 13th in which we are praying for $300,000 to be given on that day!! Let’s do this church and keep reaching our community like never before! 

 

I mean are you shouting yet?  People from our community and through our E-campus online are getting saved, being discipled and growing in their faith!!  We are seeing people step up in faithfulness in giving their tithe each week and going over and above in their offering!! 

I MEAN C’MON SOMEBODY!!! 

We are seeing a movement that only God could create right here in Canadian County and in our OKC area!!   We must not let up!!!  Let’s go!!! 

 

Now this month still has more to come….

  • October 25th we will have our “TOGETHER WE WORSHIP NIGHT”. We are working hard to take this night to another level for the whole family.  All are welcome and we encourage you to invite others in the community to join us and be apart of this night!  This will be a refreshing night that you will not want to miss out on!!  We will start at 5pm with hayrides, horseshoes, free hamburgers and hotdogs and a family photo booth.  Then 6pm we will start our Worship Services where we will have worship and baptism’s.  Then post the service we will have a pumpkin carving contest!!  Cmon!!!  Don’t miss it!!  Pass the word to everyone you know!!!
  • BAPTISM: If you have given your life to Christ and have yet to follow through with believers baptism since you were saved, we want to see you follow through in that obedience before this year is up!  Would you consider taking this next step?  We always baptize on a weekly basis in our Sunday morning services, but would love for you to be considered to be baptized at our Together We Worship Night on October 25th

Email me personally and we will get you all set up to take this next step in your faith.  Brianm@trinityyukon.com 

  • Pray for the 2020 Election and for our Country! Every Friday between now and the election, we are asking you to join us in prayer for our Country and the 2020 Election.  Would you go right now to pray.trinitychurchok.com and select a time each Friday to join us in prayer?  It is important that we pray for our country as well as that we do our part in participating in the greatest privilege we have as Americans, to get out & vote!!  I encourage you all to vote however your convictions lead you to vote, but please go vote – don’t just pray and not get out and vote, nor should we just vote before we pray!!  Pray and Vote!! 

 

Church, let’s keep in mind, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” So let’s keep doing our part and keep living as Kingdom Influencers in Canadian County.  Who is your “ONE” that you are praying for to be saved and get connected in church?  Would you invite them this week?  Would you pray for them and pray the Lord will give you the opportunity to share the Gospel with them and invite them to church?  Let’s keep making a great impact in our community!! 

 

I can’t tell you how thankful Jennifer, McKenna, Parker and I are to be a part of the Trinity Family.  It is a real honor to be your Pastor.  I ask that you keep praying for me and my family!  We love you and are very thankful for you!!  Always remember “Together We are a reaching, discipling and sending church impacting generations for Christ.” 

This week let’s live out the mission the Lord has given us together!

Your Pastor,
