Whether you're a casual rider, a hardcore cyclist, or haven't ridden in years, you are invited to Trinity's third annual blessing of the bicycles. Custom T-Shirts will be for sale for only $15, there will be a raffle for a framed print of the Patron St. of Cycling, and lunch will be provided starting at 11 AM. There will also be a kid's safety course. Come one, come all! 

The Table, Saturdays at 5:00 p.m.


During July, we are discussing the healing stories found in the Gospel of Mark. This Saturday’s story of the man with the unclean spirit can be found in Mark 1:21-28.

Rector’s Discretionary Fund Running Low

Thanks to your generous donations to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund, Trinity is able to assist neighbors in need struggling to make ends meet. Over the years, we have provided thousands of dollars to help God’s beloved community keep the lights on and pay the rent. Currently, the fund is low, so please consider making a contribution.

Sunday School/Childcare

Simplified Sunday school continues during the summer months in the North Parish Hall during the 10:30 AM service. This Sunday’s storyteller is Ida McCall. Professional Childcare provided by Katie Wolf.

9:30 AM Sunday Bible Study

This Sunday, July 14, we begin a new discussion series called “Orthodox Doctrine, Radical Worldview” where we will explore how some of the church’s orthodox teachings found within the creed inspire progressive politics and activism.

Artist's Talk

Ron E. Young will present an artist's talk in the north parish hall discussing his work currently on display there this Sunday, July 14th, directly following the 10:30 service. All are invited to learn & dialogue!

In Case of an Overdose,

Call 911 & Then Use Narcan

Last week, some Trinity staff and volunteers were trained in the proper use of Narcan to help a person experiencing an opioid overdose. We will be presenting this information to ushers, food ministry volunteers and other interested people at a Noon Forum soon. We want the community to know that we now have Narcan here at church for such an emergency. This medication is stored in a red backpack in the “sexton’s closet” at the foot of the stairs in the pantry bagging area.

Questions? Contact Adrienne at - 314-805-8254.

Do you “kitchen”? 

Trinity Neighborhood Camp is looking for someone to make lunch for 30 adults on Thurs., Aug. 1. 
Suggested items: cold cuts, chicken tuna or egg salad, small buns, other side salad, chips, and dessert. The lunch should be set out by 11:00 AM in Fr. Jon’s office.  See Kate Worland or Barb Holmes for details. 

Trinity Food Ministry

Mark your calendars! Saturday, August 3 will be our next Community Game Night! This past Saturday was attended by ten people and we had a blast. Come and join us at the next one. The more the merrier!

Recently someone asked me how much one bag of groceries cost. So, I sat down and figured it out.

The idea of our “emergency” food offerings is exactly that. We are an emergency food pantry. The food we offer to one person or a family of many more is roughly the equivalent of three meals. That isn’t much food when I think of how quickly the teens in my own house could “hoover” through a week’s supply of food. But it helps.

So, for a family of four, with the basic foods, it costs about $15. That is for basic foods – 4 proteins, 6 veggies, 4 soups, 10 potatoes, 4 onions, 8 bananas, 1 cabbage, 1 dozen eggs, 1 pkg spaghetti and 2 tomato sauces. Extra but not counted from a cost factor are cereal, peanut butter, dry milk, breakfast bars, macaroni and cheese. These are added as we have them with the source for these being donations. People can come once per month to get these groceries.

Think about it. Would you be willing to support a family each month? Fifteen dollars a month would help one family through some rough days.

This week at pantry:

Pasta sauce, peanut butter, bar soap, toothpaste.
