As we are in the middle of kitchen renovations and repairs, our long awaited second freezer has arrived, whose sole purpose in life is receptions and outreach. 

Come to the church kitchen next SUNDAY, FEB. 17, AFTER THE 10:30 AM SERVICE if you would like to be part of filling the freezer with cookies, brownies, vegetable soup, flatbread, etc. Recipes and ingredients will be provided for this first try: The idea is that if somebody is ill or we suddenly need to provide a reception, the basic supplies are already there, made with love and a prayer...and dated and labeled. See you Saturday! – Faithfully, Susan K

Confirmation and Baptism
March 24, 2019 10:30 a.m.

We welcome Bishop Phillip Duncan to Trinity on March 24 at the 10:30 service, for Confirmation and Baptism. This is an opportunity to welcome new members to our congregation and to our denomination.

If you are interested in being Baptized (at any age), or know a child who would like to be Baptized let us know. If you desire to join our congregation as an adult—middle school or older, here is the schedule for instruction:

Saturday, March 16 - 9:00 to 3:30 (2 parts all in one day)
 (lunch provided)
Sunday, March 3 and Sunday March 10 , 12:00 to 3:30
 (lunch provided)

Or you could do part on a Sunday afternoon and the other part on Saturday—on Saturday morning we will cover the same material as the first Sunday, and in the afternoon the same material as the second Sunday.

Or you could contact Father Edward or Rev. Susan to figure out something else!
