Annual Parish Meeting for 2020

The Trinity Annual Parish Meeting will be January 26 @ 9:00 AM - between the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services. Please join us to hear a wrap up of 2019, and discuss the goals and budget for 2020. Reports for inclusion in the annual report should be submitted ASAP.

 

Vestry Updates

Repairs to the boiler will be needed; an estimate to the extent and expense is pending. Vestry agreed to the shredding of very old tax records (per recommendation of the diocesan office), as well as disposal of half the metal folding chairs in the undercroft.

 

Stewardship

Thank you to all that submitted your pledge for 2020 - it's going to be great year!

If you haven't filled a pledge card out and wish to, there are pledge cards available in the narthex and at the Information Station in the main hall.

 

Sunday School

Sunday School registration for 2019 - 2020 is now in progress.

Sunday School meets every Sunday at 10:00 AM in their class room and always has room for more.

We encourage all children to attend. The teachers have spent time to plan their curriculum and have a lor coming up for the year.

Please fill out a Sunday School registration form for each child and return it to the church office or the Sunday School Teachers.

 

Custodial Help

Dennis Noonan, our Sexton, had surgery w/e 11/16. During his 6 week convalescence we need help with custodial tasks. Becky has prepared a sign up sheet (on the information station table in the parish hall) so you can sign up for these simple acts of service for the parish.

 

Trinity newsletter

If you have items for the next newsletter please submit them to the church office (can be left in the slot in the office door) or sent by email. We hope to publish regularly to keep us all in communication about what's happening at Trinity!

All calendar items, info, & events that you want included in the newsletter must be submitted to the office by the 27th of the month to be published in the newsletter for the following month.

All calendar events should be submitted to the office marked "Attn - Don Harder" so they can be added to the website calendar, since it will only be accessible through a link on the e-mailed newsletter. Also - please mark your events on the calendar on the office door.

Please submit e-mail addresses to receive the newsletter in your email and save the church paper and printing cost.
