Adult Form

The Adult Forum looks at the First Epistle to Timothy

While traditionally attributed to Paul as a letter written to his protégé in Ephesus, modern scholars now think that the First Epistle to Timothy (or 1 Timothy as it is sometimes written) was composed in the late-first to early-second century AD. The letter contains themes of what to avoid and what to repair in the Church, including some instruction that is controversial in our own time. Join us as we explore this book of the New Testament for the next six weeks in the Adult Forum Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in the downstairs Jackson Kemper Room.
Summer Art Auction

An Art Silent Auction: How does it work?

Excitement is building for the Trinity Summer Art Auction, Saturday June 29 from 1:00 to 5:00. But how exactly will it work? It's pretty simple, and as with most things, more fun if you get in on the action! 

  1. Come to the parish hall and register for a bid number, which will be your I.D. during the auction.
  2. Peruse the art and write your bid on the sheet next to the art that you love. There's no limit to how many artworks you can bid on!
  3. Go outside and enjoy the live music by Sissy and Earl. Play some lawn games. Have a cookie.
  4. Go back inside and check on your bid. If someone else raised the bid, increase yours so you don't lose that beautiful art!
  5. Repeat as necessary.
  6. Run a few errands. 
  7. Bidding ends at 4:00, so come back at 5:00 to see if you won the art that you fell in love with. (If you can't be there at 5:00, you'll get a call telling you that you won.)
  8. Take your beautiful art home and enjoy it!

What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, even more fun if you bring a friend or two, so spread the word! And a good way to spread the word is logging onto the Trinity Facebook page and share our post with the art.

Do you have a great fundraising idea? If so contact Betsi Anderson on the Vestry at to share.

Lay Eucharistic Ministers

If a member of your household would like the Eucharist and because of illness or age cannot come into church, our Lay Eucharistic Team will bring the Sacrament to you.

The Episcopal Church defines a Lay Eucharistic Minister, or LEM, as a layperson who assists the priest in administering the sacraments of Holy Communion, the consecrated bread and wine. They may also take the sacraments to those who are ill, or otherwise unable to attend Mass. At Trinity, our Eucharistic Visitors acts under the direction of Deacon Deborah Burns. If you need this service; please notify Deacon Deborah Burns at:  

Julian of Norwich has some advice about how to enjoy the joys of summertime. Here is her short and sweet poem from the book “Earth Prayers From Around the World’, edited by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon.

Be s gardener.
Dig a ditch,
toil and sweat,
and turn the earth upside down
and seek the deepness
and water the plants in time. 
Continue this labor
and make sweet floods to run
and noble and abundant fruits
to spring.
Take this food and drink
and carry it to God
as your true worship.


Plant a garden or a container of flowers. As you feel the soil on your hands and the sun on your face, thank God for the wonder of nature.
