New Members   On Sunday, October 28, the congregation at Trinity UMC welcomed three new members into our church.

Jeremiah Garrigues-Cortelyou has been involved with our music program for more than a year and is currently our co-choir director with Emily Ritsema. We appreciate his beautiful voice and the life-long experience of being a United Methodist…he has had experience representing youth at the Annual Conference meetings in the past. He teaches at Kingsford High School during the school year and spends his summers at the Interlochen Center for the Arts. Welcome, Jeremiah!

Heidi and Jerry Harwell also come to us with many years of experience within United Methodist Churches—in various places around the state of Michigan like the Traverse Bay area and in Escanaba. They currently live in Felch with their two dogs and many flower beds and vegetable gardens. We have already enjoyed the ‘fruits’ of their labors with baskets of apples they shared with us earlier in the fall. Heidi is a talented porcelain doll artist, and Jerry is patiently building up a Praise Team at Trinity…he plays the drums and knows his way around a sound system! Heidi works in the IT Department at the VA Hospital, and Jerry works from home as a claims adjuster for AutoOwners Insurance. They would be glad to tell you more about their adult children and experiences, so don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to them!

We give thanks whenever someone finds their way ‘home’ to Trinity UMC and takes the ceremonial step to become a professing member. Welcome, and God’s peace to the three of you!
