The mission of Trinity Church is to share Christ's love and grace in a vibrant community whose joyful spirit empowers people to do God's work.
UPDATE REGARDING WORSHIPPING TOGETHER
Change is coming!

Beginning this Sunday, you do not need to register for church. Please check in with an usher or vestry person before entering the building.

Masks are not required for those who are vaccinated.

We will be able to seat more people in the sanctuary.

We join with St. George's and Christ Lutheran in sending David off with our prayers and best wishes!

Book Review by the Task Force to Plan to Dismantle Racism

Sweet and Sour, Tales from China, retold by Carol Kendall and Yao-Wen Li, grades 5-7
These twenty four unusual tales from various periods in Chinese history, some complex, others as brief as a joke, display the wit, cleverness, and down-to-earth wisdom of the Chinese people.

Drawn Together, Minh Le, PK-2 
This is a beautifully told and illustrated story about a grandson and grandfather struggling to communicate across divides of language, age, and culture. The author is a first-generation Vietnamese-American.

Eyes that Kiss in the Corners, Joanna Ho, PK-3
This lyrical, stunning picture book tells a story about learning to love and celebrate your Asian-shaped eyes. It is also a celebration of diversity. A young Asian girl notices that her eyes look different from her peers’. She realizes that her eyes are like her mother’s, her grandmother’s, and her little sister’s. Drawing from the strength of these powerful women in her life, she recognizes her own beauty and discovers a path to self-love and empowerment.

These books can be purchased from Jabberwocky Children's Books & Toys, Fredericksburg, VA. 

Our TRINITY SUNDAY SPECIAL OFFERING will go to Trinity’s Parishioner Assistance Fund to help members of our church in times of need. Please use your special offering envelope or write a check to Trinity Church with Trinity Sunday offering in the memo space.
