Shining Your Light

How do you share your LIGHT with the world?

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 (NRSV)

For our theme-related summer assignment, we want you to share the light with us! One way we celebrate light in our church traditions is with candles. In this Carillon is a page with a picture of a candle. We invite you to share ways that you let your light shine inside the candle. You are also welcome to decorate and/or color the candle if you want. 

When you have completed your candle, you can drop it in the mail to Trinity (Trinity United Methodist Church, Attn: Worship Committee, 361 Sumner Avenue, Springfield, MA 01108) or take a picture of it and email that to worship@trinityspringfield.org. If you prefer, you can hold onto your candle until we are back to holding in-person worship. We plan to have a box available on Sunday mornings for you to drop candles in.

We do not have a due date for this project. We will be collecting candles throughout the year and intend to use them to decorate the sanctuary, as well as sharing some through various church communications.

If you have any questions or comments (or need additional candles), please contact Ellen Lutz, Worship Chair (email worship@trinityspringfield.org or call - her number is listed in the online church directory or you can call the church office to ask for it).

Keep shining your LIGHT!
