Call to Action

Homecoming Potluck and

Hymn Sing - September 14th

Countdown to the Homecoming Pot Luck and Hymn Sing!
Step 1
- Put September 14th on your calendar.
Step 2 - Grab a yellow vote sheet and envelope on Sunday, list your favorite hymn(s) and the amount you bid to have them make the Top Ten. Put the money and the ballot in the envelope and get it in the offering plate or to Bill Ader in the office by the 8th at 10:30.
Step 3 - Decide what yummy thing you want to bring to the Pot Luck. It starts at 6:00 but you may drop your dish off earlier and attend the Saturday evening Table service at 5:00.
Step 4 - During our meal, you’ll have a chance to bid in the Silent Auction for hymns you’d like taken out of the rotation for 6 months ($2 increments) or a full year ($5 increments). You name
the hymn; you make your bid… So peruse those hymnals ahead of time!
Step 5 - Show up that evening with your food, your friends/family, your money, your voice & your good humor! It all benefits the Trinity Food Ministry!

Summer Sunday School/Childcare

Simplified Sunday school continues during the summer months in the North Parish Hall during the 10:30 AM service. No storyteller this Sunday, but childcare will be available.

Bring a game and a snack to share. 6 – 8 p.m. 

Trinity Food Ministry

This ministry is one of many ups and downs. There is so much tragedy and sorrow that is in this community. Few have gone through their lives without experiencing or witnessing violence or oppression. Yet, through it all, there is laughter and joy. This past Sunday, I found myself at the center as the faire la fête. One of the members who attends the Trinity Art Club (meets every Saturday morning 8:30 – 11:30 am) made a birthday card that many in the neighborhood signed. A song, a speech, and a cake, along with many hugs, all brought off with a small element of surprise! I was amazed and overwhelmed at the outpouring. The love I felt was overwhelming … in a very good way. 

I am so thankful for this community of Trinity Church and this neighborhood. I am proud of the relationships that we have built and continue to build. The witness of love is amazing and palpable.


I give thanks for you all.

Be a Treater for Coffee Hour

For those of us who go to the 10:30 service on Sundays, “Coffee Hour” brings a welcome treat and a chance to chat with fellow Trinitarians. How do those treats get there, you may have wondered? There is a roster of folks who commit to buying, bringing and setting up the sweets and savories - whether store-bought or home-made. The cost runs around $25-30 per Sunday and we appreciate the Treaters making this gift to the life of the community.

We’d love to have a few more people on that roster - perhaps a pair of you might team up to cover a Sunday. Here’s a link explaining how it works, if more information would help you decide. And for those of you who just like to bake from time to time, please know that your offering of cake or cookies will be most welcome - no need to let anyone know, just put your treat on the table in the hallway outside Fr. Jon’s office before 10:30. 

Questions? Want to sign up? Contact Adrienne at or 314-805-8254.

Book Group

Our next Book Group will meet on Saturday, Sept 21 at 7pm at the home of Hazel and Tom Kirk at 16 Schultz Rd.  We will be discussing “Unsheltered" by Barbara Kingsolver.  The book is the story of two families who live in the same house two centuries apart “with history as their tantalizing canvas these characters paint a startlingly relevant portrait of life in  precarious times, when the foundations of the past have failed to prepare us for the future."

Film & Fellowship

Everyone is welcome to join “Film and Fellowship” to share food, friendship and film discussions. Our first meeting will be held on September 10th in the North Parish Hall beginning with a shared meal at 6:30.  Bring food to share (appetizer, salad, casserole or dessert).  We will discuss films we saw and enjoyed over the summer.  We will also discuss how our meetings will be organized over the following months. 
For questions, please contact Kathy van Bakergem or Ron Tompkins.

From our Holy Ground Collaborative Neighbors

Central Reform Congregation invites us to their Music in the Garden series this Summer. Bring your lawn chair, snacks to share and non-alcoholic beverages. Beginning at 6:30 – 
September 1 -  Rabbi James Stone Goodman & guests
