CALENDAR PLANNING

With Eaton Hall out of commission, it is crucial that we know the  dates and time(s)  required for all church groups and activities. We will do our best to schedule accommodations in the Kelso Library. All committee chairs or group leaders, please provide the office with meeting requests just as soon as possible. It is suggested that your plans extend through at least part of 2018.
LOST AND FOUND

Numerous articles have been recovered from the church pews, sacristy, vesting rooms, Kelso Library, reception areas and everywhere in-between. If you are missing eye glasses, children’s purses, a serving dish or numerous umbrellas, please check with the church office. Umbrellas are also orphaned in the Narthex, vesting rooms and sacristy


TRINITY HAS BEEN INVITED TO JOIN THE SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER

5:30 pm - February 13, 2018 at
GRACE EPISCOPAL CHURCH

Jinkins Parish Hall 1115-36th Street
Extra griddles and a few people to flip are requested to help.
Origins of Shrove (Fat) Tuesday
Shrove Tuesday originated during the Middle Ages. As in contemporary times, food items like meats, fats, eggs, milk, and fish were regarded as restricted during Lent. To keep such food from being wasted, many families or communities would have big feasts on Shrove Tuesday in order to consume those items that would inevitably become spoiled during the next forty days. The English tradition of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday came about as a way to use as much milk, fats, and eggs as possible before Ash Wednesday began. In France, the consumption of all fats and fatty foods on this day coined the name "Fat Tuesday" or Mardi Gras .

Matthew: A 12-Week Study

By  Drew Hunter , General Editor  J. I. Packer , Series edited by  Dane C. Ortlund Lane T. Dennis

The book of Matthew paints a powerful portrait of Jesus as Israel’s long-awaited Messiah, the one who would bring God’s kingdom to earth and fulfill his promises to his people.
Leading readers through this hope-filled book, this guide explains the biblical text with clarity and passion—inviting us to encounter God’s one and only Son: Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Over the course of 12 weeks, these studies explore books of the Bible and:

  • Ask thoughtful questions to spur discussion
  • Show how each passage unveils the gospel
  • Tie the text in with the whole story of Scripture
  • Illuminate the doctrines taught in each passage
  • Invite you to discover practical implications
  • Help you better understand and apply God’s Word

Part of the  Knowing the Bible  series.

Contact Danielle Alvarado at:  dalvarado@trintygalv.org  to join the group.

WILLIAM TEMPLE EPISCOPAL CENTER
Still Feeding and Serving 100 Students per Week

Our Wednesday night cook team has done a great job while Mike Ellis is on the mend. Theresa Reeves has really stepped up to the plate and spearheaded meal preparation most weeks and Ollive Shepherd has typed the recipes and put them in a notebook for easy reference to whomever the cooks may be. Buddy and Linda Fredrickson gifted us with 3 restaurant style drink dispensers that make us look professional.

Again, thank you to our Willie T’s Team for their commitment: Erik Dill, Buddy and Linda Fredrickson, David Hughes, Bill Kennard, Ollive Shepherd, and new volunteer JaLene Thatcher Khambu and her family.
