TRINITY UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST 1Q 2014 REPORT

Note from the
Senior Pastor
Beloved,
As long as I live, I will continue to be
amazed at the wonders that God brings
forth every day. It seems that no sooner that
a new challenge arisen, then that challenge
has dissolved into another opportunity for
our God to demonstrate the power and
dominion that can overcome any struggle
or transgression.
During the first quarter of 2014, in the
midst of the snow and the cold, our God
made provision for this branch of Zion. It
seemed that every Sunday in January, and even into February, there was a snowstorm. Yet,
even with the slight attendance that these “snow Sundays” often caused, and the resulting
diminished tithes and offerings and increased spending on snow removal, we were able to
“weather the storm,” with God’s help.
In January, our Worship Planning Team working with the DuSable Museum and organized
what we think was the first collaboration between a church and museum to commemorate
the Maafa. Our 12 Sunday Maafa Worship Services during Black History Month were
supplemented with a powerful historical context each Wednesday at the DuSable. As we
remembered the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade and our ancestors from Ghana, the DuSable
showed a film on Kwame Nkrumah, Ghanaian freedom fighter and first post-colonial
president, and held a panel conversation; when we ventured to Haiti to celebrate Toussaint
L’ Overture, the DuSable dug deeper into this incredible leader. We continued through the
slave ports of New Orleans and onward, to the great migration north to Chicago. A powerful
partnership indeed!

TRINITY UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST 1Q 2014 REPORT

Imani Village, our green, sustainable multi-use complex under development at 95th and Cottage
continues to progress in the face of challenge. With a great team in place, led by Attorney James
Montgomery and Attorney Patricia Eggleston, and supplemented by the efforts of Rev. Dr. Stacey
Edwards-Dunn, doors are continuing to open throughout Chicago and the state of Illinois. This
project of daring imagination is coming closer to realization, daily.
God also worked through the people of Trinity UCC, as we marched ever closer to our Raise
the Roof goal of $5 million. As I am writing this note, we are a hair’s breadth away from $4.6
million. Praise God! I have every confidence that we will meet, and even exceed our goal soon,
and, as soon as our planning has concluded, we will begin working on our green roof, and other
projects that will upgrade/update our physical plant and other infrastructure.
What a wonderful God we serve! What a joy to serve God, and this congregation.

Asking you to imagine . . .

Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III

The DuSable Museum of African American History and the Illinois Amistad
Commission are pleased to present “Suite DuSable: A Vision of Faith,” by world
renowned composer, Renée Baker. This symphonic poem presented in collaboration
with Chicago Modern Orchestra Project and AACM, is a tribute to Jean Baptiste
Pointe DuSable, the founder of Chicago. This piece is a celebration of Jean Baptiste
Point DuSable’s visionary journey, tracing in sound the water routes traveled and
choice encounters by Chicago’s first settler from his home in Haiti in the Atlantic
Ocean through various waterways leading to the Great Lakes.

Each set includes the 11:00 a.m. worship services of February!
