Appointment of Pastor to Trinity United

PUGET SOUND MISSIONAL DISTRICT OF THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
District Service Center
P .O. Box 13650
Des Moines, WA 98198-1009

25 February 2022

To all our siblings at Trinity United Methodist Church,

Grace to you and peace from God, our Creator, and Christ, our Savior.

I am writing this letter to share with you that Bishop Elaine Stanovsky intends to appoint the Rev. Deborah “Desi” Larson as pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church in Sequim, Washington effective July 1, 2022.

Rev. Deborah "Desi" Larson
Rev. Deborah “Desi” Larson

Pastor Desi holds a BA degree in English and Visual Arts from Waynesburg College in Pennsylvania and a Master of Divinity from Boston University in Massachusetts. Being a life-long learner, Pastor Desi also received MS and PhD degrees in Adult Education from Cornell University in New York.

She was commissioned as Provisional Member of the New England Conference of the United Methodist Church in 2007 and then ordained in 2011 as Full Member. In 2019, she transferred her membership to the Oregon-Idaho Conference.

Currently, Pastor Desi is serving as pastor of Ashton Community United Methodist Church in Ashton, Idaho. Prior to this, she served as pastor of several of our churches in Maine, namely Readfield, Brackett Memorial and Merriland Ridge United Methodist Churches.

Feel free to announce this to the congregation beginning Sunday, 27 February 2022.

I also pray for God’s grace and abundant blessing on your pastor, the Rev. Joey Olson. We are so grateful to Pastor Joey for her willingness to step in and provide the pastoral leadership the church surely needed in the past few months. I hope you can find ways to honor and thank Pastor Joey for her faithful and grace-filled service and leadership with you.

May the Holy Spirit continue to enliven and guide your lives and ministries so you can become the radically welcoming and loving faith community, you were always meant to be.

Your fellow disciple,

Rev. J. Mark Galang District Superintendent

Morning prayer

January 13, 2022

From Pastor Joey

Morning Prayer

Beginning Thursday, January 27th, I will lead morning prayer beginning at 9:15 a.m. It will be for anyone who wishes to come, last 45 minutes, and have a simple structure. There will be time for silent prayer, joys and concerns, prayers for each other, the church, and the world. My urgency for this time began during Advent while I was preaching about Mary. I do not think her faithful response to God would be possible without a prayer life that was fed by scripture.

When I was pastor in Port Angeles, the congregation used the theologian Henri Nouwen’s Reaching Out for one of our small group studies. I was “caught” by the following passage:

Prayer is the language of Christian community. In prayer the nature of the community becomes visible because in prayer we direct ourselves to the one who forms community… Praying is not one of the many things the community does. Rather, it is its very being. (p. 112)

My translation of the last sentence is “praying is not what we do, it is who we are!”

At that time in Port Angeles, I began a prayer breakfast which has met every Tuesday since then. Since I do not live in Sequim we will forgo the breakfast, but folks are welcome to bring whatever beverage and food they wish.

Here are a few other quotes from Nouwen’s book:

The paradox of prayer is that we have to learn how to pray while we can only receive it as a gift. (p. 87)

There is probably no image that expresses so well the intimacy with God in prayer as the image of God’s breath. We are like asthmatic people who are cured of their anxiety. The Spirit has taken away our narrowness….and made everything new for us. We receive a new breath, a new freedom, a new life. (p. 89)

When God has become our shepherd, our refuge, our fortress, then we can reach out to him in the midst of a broken world and feel at home. (p. 106)

Prayer as a hopeful and joyful waiting for God is a really unhuman or superhuman task unless we realize that we do not have to wait alone. In the community of faith we can find the climate and the support to sustain and deepen our prayer and we are enabled to look beyond our immediate and often narrowing private needs. (p. 109)

Nouwen, Henri J. M., Reaching Out. Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1975.

I plan to continue morning prayer every Thursday (unless I am away) through June. I do hope that a few faithful ones will join me as we continue to be and become the Body of Christ for the world. Those interested, please email me at pastorjoeyoffice@sequimtumc.org.

Prayer Concerns that we have:

  • For those who haven’t been vaccinated yet; for all those who are ill from the Covid-19 virus; for those families who have lost loved ones to the virus; and for essential workers.
  • For peace in our country.
  • For Katherine Parker, missionary to Nepal.

Announcements for January 13 – 22, 2022

From Pastor Joey/Scammers

Please be alert that scammers are using my name to get money. Please know that I do not text people in the congregation. If I want to have an important conversation with you, I will call or email. My email address is pastorjoeyoffice@sequimtumc.org. (I do have a private email account, but don’t use It for church). If you get any suspicious request from “me” please let me know immediately. Blessings, Joey

Sunday In-Person Services

Relax and renew yourself in Christ!

This will be a small group study and practice based on the book, Right Here Right Now: The Practice of Christian Mindfulness, by Amy G. Oden. Begins February 17 at noon on Zoom for 6 weeks for 60 to 90 minutes. A limited number of books will be available in the church office. You may also retake this class.

January Noisy Can Offering

Katherine Parker is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church. She serves as a Health and Community Transformation Advisor with the United Mission to Nepal, an ecumenical ministry with the vision of a “fullness of life for all in a transformed Nepali society.” Katherine’s work is focused on Adolescent Empowerment, Maternal and Child Health, Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene. Continuing our tradition of supporting Katherine’s missionary work in Nepal, our Noisy Can offering will fulfill our Covenant Relationship commitment. Any funds received over the amount needed for our Covenant Relationship will be used to improve living conditions for the disabled Nepalese. (A copy of Katherine’s biography is posted on the display board in our Information Center.) Should you choose to make a donation, please issue your check to TUMC and indicate in the memo section January NCO. Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated!

Note: A Covenant Relationship with a missionary is more than financial support. It is a dynamic relationship where the church and missionary pray for one another and communicate regularly. – paraphrased from Resource UMC.

Let’s give Trinity some TLC!

Come on out to Trinity TLC where we do light maintenance around the church while sharing in fellowship. We meet every two weeks, and our next meeting is Fri., Jan. 21, 9:30 AM for a couple of hours. We will be doing maintenance and upkeep, jobs that need doing, and of course having a cup of coffee and light eats. All are welcome! For more info, call Andy Pitts at 804-724-3401.

We recently have seen devastating disasters in the news, some fairly local, some within our country, and often some in other countries. If you would like to help by sending funds, you can issue a check to TUMC, writing one of these Advance Numbers in the memo section:

  • Pacific NW Conf. Disaster Fund — Advance #352
  • UMCOR US Disaster & Recovery — Advance #901670
  • UMCOR International Disaster Response — Advance #982450

Home Maintenance Funds Are Still Available

TUMC Missions Ministry has funds available to help folks with necessary home maintenance projects. Please let your friends and neighbors know that this is not just limited to the TUMC congregation. It is truly “neighbors helping neighbors.” This might include basic home repairs, yard cleanup, ramps, grab bars and other in-home needs. One household could receive one grant per year with a maximum of up to $500. Confidential requests will go through Lois’s Legacy. Contact Senior Ministries Office 360-683-4307 for further information.

Weekly Letter/Newsletter Update

Beginning at the end of this month we will be back to our once-a-month Circuit Rider (for February). For those who have newsletter articles for the Circuit Rider, please submit them to the church office by email by the 20th of the month.

Exposure to COVID

If you have been in the church and find out later that you were exposed to COVID prior to being here, please contact Jim Stoffer, 360-775-9356 or jamesstoffer@wavecable.com, and the church office, 360-683-5367 or church@sequimtumc.org. There are steps and processes that we will need to take to ensure the health and safety of TUMC and our community.
