Captivating is the history of this house. A five-Bay Colonial Revival, it is one of a very few two-story hipped roof houses in Apalachicola. Today the home belongs to a seventh-generation “Apalachicolan” and her husband. Family photographs, furnishings, and mementoes from travels abroad are highlights.

Spring Cleaning
at Trinity

With Easter and the Tour of Homes approaching, many hands came together to spruce up the grounds. In addition, a professional crew repaired storm-damaged roof shingles, power-washed the church, and temporarily removed and cleaned the cross.
EfM -- Learn, Discover, Question, Reflect

Education for Ministry (EfM), a four-year curriculum, will begin it's new year of study in the fall. As this year of study comes to a close, three Trinity Parishioners are "graduating" from EfM on May 19 -- Ralph Wagoner, Susie Wagoner, and Jane Harris . Ralph and Susie invite you to learn more about this rewarding experience, through their reflection and comment:

In the summer of 2015, shortly after Susie and I moved to Apalach and joined Trinity, we were invited to participate in something called EfM, Education for Ministry. So, along with Jane Harris we became “Year One’ers”.  The journey together has been very meaningful and brought us closer not just as neighbors but as Christians of Trinity... continue reading their reflection here

For more information about how you can join the next EfM class, contact Carol Wood at 850-866-9850 or woodrink@gmail.com
