On Saturday evening September 14, Trinity will hold a Homecoming and Hymn Sing to support the Trinity Food Ministry. At 6 p.m. (following the Table service) we'll gather for a potluck supper followed by a 7 p.m. hymn sing in the Church.
For the hymn sing, there will be two giving opportunities:
• First, in the weeks leading up to the event, vote for your favorite hymns. At $1 per vote, we'll sing the 10 hymns which receive the most votes.
• Secondly at the potluck, we will have a silent auction to “retire" two hymns for six months each and one hymn which will be retired for the entire year.
So peruse your hymnals and stay tuned - More to come in the weeks ahead!
No Morning Prayer on Friday the 26th.
Thanks to everyone who volunteers at the 5pm Saturday Table service.
The Parish Office will close at noon on Fridays during the months of June, July, and August.
Sermons from the past eight Sundays are available on our website's sermon page.
Game Night Saturday the 3rd of August at 6 PM.
You are invited to our third game night on Saturday August the 3rd at 6 PM after The Table service. This is a great opportunity for folks from the food pantry and folks from the congregation to enjoy some fun, fellowship, and food. Feel free to bring your favorite board or card game.
Do you “kitchen”?

Trinity Food Ministry
This week we are giving thanks for cooler weather. It is a reminder to all of us to look for the blessing in what is before us. So, we are very thankful for this blessing of a break in the weather!
The cooler night temperatures are also a reminder that, regardless of how many more hot days and evenings there may be, it won’t be that long before members of our community will again be facing the cold. Please take these summer days to look at your selection of coats, gloves, hats, blankets, hoodies, and sweatshirts and mentally pack these away for September when we can begin taking warm items.
There are three items for which I am continually asked during the summer: socks, t-shirts, and underwear. There are four things most requested in the winter: socks, t-shirts, underwear and hoodies. Of course, we can’t give away used underwear plus new socks are always best for feet that are so compromised. If you find any good sales on undies and socks, please share the news with your friends and ask them for gifts for the Pantry!
The Pantry will be closed July 30 – August 1 for the Neighborhood Camp. However, the hunger will continue although we will not be here to offer food. Please double up on your giving for the Food Pantry.
We always need:
Toilet tissue, bar soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes (in packs of NO MORE than 3 or 4), razors, lotion
Peanut butter, breakfast bars, peanut butter crackers, cereal, chicken
Schnuck’s Operation Food Search Food Drive – August 3rd
We only just learned that Schnuck’s would again participate in this food collection again (after having said they were not going to do it…). So we will need volunteers Saturday August 3rd between 11 and 3 in the S. Parish Hall, to receive sort, count and put away the food donated by shoppers at the Richmond Heights store. In past years, we have gotten over 2000 items from this drive – much needed help for our food pantry. It’s a big job but really fun.
If you can help, please contact email@example.com or 314-805-8254. Thanks!
