Trinity Announcements & Opportunities


The winter meeting of Trinity’s ECW (Episcopal Church Women) will be held in Benedict Hall on  Monday, January 27 th  at   12:30 pm . The group has several things to discuss regarding plans for the coming year, so I hope that many of you will join us. Lunch will be served .


The 2020 Flower Chart is now posted in the Narthex. You can choose a date for decorating the Altar in memory, thanksgiving, or celebration of a family member or friend. Please complete the form next to the chart and return it to the Church office, or place it in the offering plate.

It's time to update Trinity's Prayer List . Please notify the Church office of changes, including those whose health has improved, or those who are now deceased. The first 15 names will be removed on February 1, unless an update has been provided.

Trinity welcomes new members to its Flower Guild . If you would like to be a part of this rewarding ministry, creating floral arrangements for the Altar, please contact Aglaia Dolan at 850-670-8781 or 850-653-7085.

Donations for the 2020 Trinity Tour of Homes Auction are starting to come in, so it is time to check your closets, attics, and basements for those forgotten treasures. Donation Forms are on the bulletin board in Benedict Hall and in the office. Text or call: Ginger/404-561-0919, Betty/513-214-9220, Kathy/207-745-3990, Marlene/843-224-7706, Rennie/205-936-8124, or Martha/850-653-5856 to arrange for collection of the items.

Regarding the new coffee hour guidelines , we never have any problem getting volunteers to bring wonderful food. It is much harder to get people to set up, make coffee, clean up, and generally oversee the event. Hopefully, there will be one or two members of each group that will be willing to co-ordinate their assigned Sundays. Please consider taking a week or two to be “in charge” so that everything gets done as efficiently as possible.
Help the Big Bend Hospice
Trinity's Outreach Committee  is calling on all of us to help the Big Bend Hospice by contributing containers of Boost or Ensure. Many hospice patients there rely on these products for their nutritional needs. However, s upplemental nutrition items are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. Pick some up today and leave it in the Food Wagon inside the front door of the Church, or at the Church Office, during January and February.
Did Someone Say Apple Dumplings?
If you were late to the dessert table at Trinity's Thanksgiving Potluck, or last month's Annual Meeting Potluck, you probably wondered what you missed from the empty dish you found. Well, those who helped themselves to a serving of apple dumplings will tell you just how delicious they were.

Prepared by Martha Snowden , the dumplings were such a hit that many of you requested the recipe. Martha says she first tasted the dumplings when they were prepared by a friend on St. George Island, from whom she acquired the recipe. She is happy to pass it on for all to enjoy. Apple Dumplings .
Celebrating Family Time During the Holidays
Patti & Bill McCartney enjoyed a family outing to North Carolina's Outer Banks during the Christmas Holidays, where they visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

Note: Photos of family trips & visits are always welcome in our Bay View. Please share yours by sending them to
