Coming Next Week -- Trinity's New Directory

Are you ready for a first look at your new Trinity Directory? Watch for a special message in your email inbox next week. The Directory will be attached (in a pdf format). To open the Directory, enter this password: mytrinity

Then, you can save it to your desktop, or anywhere in your computer files. You can also print a copy from the pdf document. For those who do not use email, we will print and send you a copy. We still need photos of some of you, which we can add at any time; watch for Mike Seibert and his camera during coffee hour.

In the near future, we will set up the Directory online, and we will let you know how to access that option. In the meantime, if you need to update your information, or if you do not see next week's email, please let us know at info@trinityapalachicola.org or call the church office at 850-653-9550.

Foyer Groups Organizing Now --
Don't Miss Out!

Foyer Groups are a popular tradition at Trinity, and it is time organize groups for gatherings which will begin meeting in May, following the Tour of Homes. The Foyers are a great way to get to know new parishioners, as well as to deepen relationships with old friends.  Groups of about eight people gather a few times during the year for a meal in someone’s home or in a restaurant; or plan an outing such as a picnic or excursion.  Each group establishes its own plan and schedule.

Here is how you can participate:    
Sign up on the sheets in Benedict Hall, or call or text Mickey Harris at 770-826-5176. You can also contact the church office (info@trinityapalachicola.org/850-653-9550) and leave your name/phone number/email. Sign up deadline is Monday, April 8.

Evie Bettis underwent hip replacement surgery on Wednesday in Albany GA. Lee reports that “Evie’s surgery went very well. It took a couple of hours but by late afternoon she was up walking. We will stay here (in Albany) for about 10 days. I plan to come home for a few days next week. -- See you soon, Lee
