From the Rector

Tidings from Trinity is a great resource for staying aware of what is happening at church and for your daily faith journey. For instance . . .

  • To enrich your prayer life and connect more closely to our Trinity family, scroll below to the Prayer and Pastoral Care section. Click on the link in the left column of that section to be taken to our weekly Prayer List. There you can find the names of people who have requested prayer for illness or other challenges in their lives or the lives of people they love. Pick a name and pray specifically for that one person and the needs they have. The Prayer List is also printed in the weekly worship bulletin.

  • To stay aware of everything coming up on the Trinity schedule, scroll down to the Trinity Monthly Calendar and click on the link. You will be taken to a Google calendar that lists all our services and everything else that will be coming up in the weeks and months ahead. You can also access this through our website.

  • Want to know upcoming birthdays and anniversaries? Scroll down to the last section in Tidings and there you will see these significant monthly dates.

These opportunities and more are a good reason to always read Tidings from Trinity and to scroll down through the entire newsletter. There is always some repetition, of course, but frequently there are new things to be seen “below the fold,” as it were. Check them out and keep current!

Blessings,
Pam+
Bulletin Board Magic! Help Kay Mackewicz, our Church Administrator, spruce up the Bulletin Board outside her office for February—a month associated with love. Send or bring her photographs of whatever represents love in your life: wedding photos, photos of grandchildren, animal companions, anything with the "Awwww" factor. Email your photos at churchadmin@trinitybeth.org or bring them by the office.

Pledge Online through Realm!
It's NEVER too late!
Realm is Trinity’s online database that keeps track of membership, finances, and so much more. If you have established your profile in Realm, you can actually turn in your pledge that way! It’s very simple.

  • For instructions on how to pledge online, click here.

We need more volunteers to help with providing and preparing snacks for our hospitality hour after the 10:30 service. Text or email Sister Ruth at (484.707.2304 or studycindy20@gmail.com) if you would like to take a shift!
If you rearrange your date(s) of service as reader, intercessor, usher, Altar Guild, or hospitality person, please inform Kay Mackewicz so she can change names in the worship bulletin.

Prayer and Pastoral Care
To add a name to our prayer list, inform us through our email account created especially for this purpose.

If you tell me (Pam) in person, I am likely to forget, so using our email is the best way to make sure we pray for you in the Prayers of the People. Email: prayerlist@trinitybeth.org

To view the coming week's prayer list, click here.
For Pastoral Care Emergencies, please call the church at (610) 867-4741, x 325. You may leave a message after hours and that message will be sent directly to Pam’s personal cell phone. Pams personal cell phone number is also in the church directory and may be found in Realm. Please be assured that we want to be present to you at times of pastoral need and will offer assistance and support in any way possible.
