A Note from the Pastor

This week we will observe Trinity Sunday. In general, Presbyterians don't use a lot of iconography, perhaps because of it's overuse prior to the Reformation. The Trinity Icon would be the one exception. It is the one image we have adopted - as a good reminder of God's invitation welcoming us into relationship. Often the Holy Trinity is depicted as three individuals sitting at a table. This is an image that has been precious to the church community for hundreds of years.

This Sunday is also Cents-ability Sunday. The children will be collecting loose coins for the Presbyterian Hunger Program. Let's fill those buckets!
