Look at Each Other With Fresh Eyes...
Raise up the Gifts in Each Other
At our recent Celebration of a New Ministry service, The Rev. Sarah E. Lewis delivered the sermon. She spoke eloquently about our shared ministry with our new Priest, the Rev. Eric N. Zile:

...So as you begin this new ministry together, May you each, in your own way, be a capacitor for each other…be that catalyst…Look at each other with fresh eyes, and look for the gifts that God has given each of you… And when you see a gift in someone, affirm it, tell them the gifts you see in them…Help to awaken and raise up the gifts in each other!

Annual Trinity Market Yields
Sales & Much Good Will

Thanks to all the bakers, picklers, preservers, crafters, and tireless workers that helped make our annual Bake Sale and Craft Market a great success! A steady stream of festival-goers and parade-watchers came by Trinity to enjoy free coffee and water, and clean restrooms - many of them leaving with a variety of culinary delights and helping to fill the ECW coffers.

When all was said and done, we garnered over $1,000 to be used for a number of projects at Trinity. Perhaps as important as the funds raised were the numerous comments of appreciation by our patrons. Trinity was once again recognized for our hospitality and community support. Keep up the good work!
