Presiding Bishop on the close ties with Scotland
The history of Samuel Seabury
Historic American- Scottish roots celebrated through presiding Bishop's visit to Aberdeen, Scotland:

In 1784 Samuel Seabury was sent to the British Isles to be consecrated as its first Bishop. Faced with an unworkable condition from the Church of England calling for Seabury to swear allegiance to the crown, he traveled to Aberdeen where three Scottish bishops agreed to consecrate him in return for promoting the Scottish Prayer Book liturgy back on American soil.

Your pledge is vital for the work that God has planned for Trinity Church

Please pray about and consider what you can and should do regarding your pledge for 2018. Trinity truly needs your assistance. You can send your completed pledge card via regular mail, or you can place it in the Sunday collection plate (in an envelope), or you can drop it by the church office.

A Prayer For This Week

On This Veteran's Day
God, I have a day off from school and work.
There are parades and memorial commemorations.
So much busy-ness surrounding Veteran’s Day.
Please help it be more than another day on the calendar.
Even as I enjoy the holiday, help me remember those who made it possible, the men and women in uniform who served.
Life, liberty and happiness come with a price.
On this Veteran’s Day, help me remember those who paid for freedom with their life and those who came back to live it.
