Weekly Trinity Times
April 18, 2019
Ushers are the 'invisible' attendants whose principal job is to assist the congregation and the altar party in the process of worship. This includes handing out the service leaflets as people arrive, collecting the offerings and taking them up to the altar, and at the end of the service, checking the pews for items left behind. The ushers serve in pairs at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service in a rotation of about every 4-6 weeks, and also as available for special services such as Christmas and Holy Week. If you would like to be a part of this rewarding ministry please contact Jan Kasalko-Usher Chair at 314-580-7488 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For other ministries that may be a fit for you, check the Trinity CWE Ministry Directory available in the rack by the Church entrance.

Christian Education Survey
Since the birth of the church, Christians have gathered together to pray, study scripture, and grow in the knowledge and love of God. At Trinity, we continue this tradition through small groups, bible studies, and seasonal classes.
Please take a few moments to tell the leadership at Trinity what you would like to learn more about and what time and date works best for you to gather together. Your feedback will help the leadership team plan and develop opportunities for Christian education, fellowship, and spiritual growth for the upcoming summer.

Invite a Friend to The Table at Trinity!
Come to The Table and bring a friend. The Table at Trinity is our new Saturday night service at 5pm. To introduce the new service and help it grow, we ask each of you to attend on a Saturday night in Lent and bring a friend who might enjoy this service. The Table is a welcoming, inclusive and informal worship service for those seeking connection and meaning. Thank you in advance for helping to spread the word about The Table at Trinity!
St. Louis Transition to 100% Clean Energy Survey
The City of St. Louis Sustainability Office recently released a Climate Adaptation Plan for the City that details the strategies to achieve an 80 percent reduction in citywide greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The Board of Aldermen of the City of St. Louis authorizes the City’s Sustainability Plan and calls for the City to commit to transition to 100 percent clean energy in the form of wind and solar and energy efficiency measures within the electricity sector by 2035.
The Board of Aldermen requests that the City develops a plan by December 2019 to meet the clean energy goal through a transparent and inclusive stakeholder process which includes community members as well as representatives from organizations representing labor, faith, social justice, environmental justice, frontline communities and those most impacted by our current energy systems, public health and the environment, economic development, utility sector, clean energy sector, universities and academic institutions, business, housing, employment services, low income advocates, government, and any other relevant groups.
You can be part of this initiative by responding to an online survey regarding clean energy in St. Louis. Your responses will help steer the plan created by the 100% Clean Energy Advisory Board.
Trinity Food Ministry
Often, I am amazed at the organic nature of this ministry. With an idea, a lot of prayer, and word of mouth, what seems impossible is suddenly beyond imagination. That is what is happening with the Trinity Foot Ministry that will be occurring in the North Parish Hall on Maundy Thursday.
In partnership with Central Reform Congregation and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Ladue, we will have hold a foot ministry for our community members who walk almost everywhere they go. With foot baths, wound care nurses, lotions, powders, new socks and shoes, we will offer these things on a first come, first serve basis. At this point, it appears that it will be a success.
Meanwhile, Pantry and Meal will be ongoing.
Needs for Pantry:
Peanut butter, chicken, cereal, bar soap, toothpaste.
Film & Fellowship
The Film and Fellowship group has chosen two films for discussion at its May 14 meeting. They are “Diane” and “Wild Nights with Emily.” A third film, “Chaperone,” is an optional choice.
All are invited to see the films ahead of time and join us for a light potluck meal and lively discussion.
Book Discussion Group
Our next Trinity Book Group will meet on May 11th at 7pm at the home of Dorothy and Ray Becvar at 6330 San Bonita Ave. We will be discussing “The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman” by Louis De Bernieres. The book “pokes fun at magical realism” while it tells the story of a free spirited city in Latin America where eccentric citizens unite to fight an evil cardinal who is trying to control them.
Thanks to everyone who assisted with Palm Sunday.
And thanks to Jym Andris, Fritzi Baker, Darrell Berg, Steven Forsyth, Jeff Goldone, Ron Tompkins and Jeff Wunrow for assisting with Tenebrae and to Etta Taylor for providing dinner.
We keep in our prayers those who are ill or in need
