Softball Practice This Friday at 6:00 p.m. at Tower Grove Park
If you signed up to play softball this July, you are invited to practice this Friday at 6 PM in Tower Grove Park. We will be at fields 3 and 3A (note change in fields from previous correspondences). Practice is encouraged but not required, and there will be no practice if it’s raining.
This Saturday, the Table Begins a New Teaching Series
During July, we will discuss 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.
Simplified Sunday school continues during the summer months in the North Parish Hall during the 10:30 AM service. This Sunday’s storyteller is Riley Luebbers. Professional Childcare provided by Katie Wolf.
9:30 AM Sunday Bible Study
There will be no 9:30 AM bible study this Sunday. Starting July 14th, we will begin a new discussion series called “Orthodox Doctrine, Radical Worldview” were we will explore how some of the church’s orthodox teachings found within the creed inspire progress politics and activism.
Blessing of the Bicycles July 13th @ 8 AM
The Blessing of the Bicycles is scheduled for Saturday July 13th at 8 AM. After the blessing, riders are welcome to participate in either a 20 or 40 mile group ride. T-shirts will be for sale, and a professional framed image of Madonna Del Ghisalo will be raffled off. We are adding a 5 and under obstacle/safety course in the parking lot, and lunch will be served after the group rides. Raffle money, T-shirt profits, and donations will go to Trinity Food Ministry.
We still need volunteers to help cook lunch. Contact Fr. Jon if you’d like to volunteer.

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.

Trauma First Aid Training July 10th
On July 10th, Stop the Bleed STL will be doing a trauma first aid training from 4 until 5:30 in the S. Parish Hall. It is free. A trauma first aid kit will be for sale for $10, and includes the tourniquet that is the focus of this program.
60 Minutes recently had an episode examining the devastating effects of the high velocity ammunition now available to shooters, and used so tragically in many of the mass shootings around the country. Car crashes and other kinds of accidents can result in similar acute bleeds.
The purpose of this nationwide effort is to equip regular folks like us with the skill to stop a traumatic bleed from an accident, a gunshot, whatever.

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 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!
Trinity Food Ministry
Happy 4th, everyone! Trinity Food Pantry will be closed on Thursday, July 4th but that does not mean that the need is any less. Please remember the Food Pantry when you shop. We always need:

Canned meats, peanut butter, chili with beans, chicken noodle soup.
Hot Lunch Servers Needed July 14th
If you’ve never helped at Sunday Hot Lunch, here is your opportunity. We need 6 to 8 people to help serve on July 14th. Here’s what’s involved: Come to the S. Parish Hall by 1:15 at the latest. Wear comfy shoes. The Trinity “Innkeeper”, will enlist you to help set places at the tables, fix beverages, and get things ready for hosting up to 100 people, who come for lunch between 2 and 2:30. Then we stay to help clean up – a speedy process that usually has us finished by 3.
Give it a try! For newcomers, it’s a great way to get acquainted with other parishioners and with the major outreach ministry of our church. Contact Adrienne at email@example.com or 314-805-8254.
Trinity Book Group will meet on Saturday, July 27th, at 7 p.m. at the home of Hazel and Tom Kirk, 16 Schultz Rd. We discuss "Bluest Eye" by the Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison, a novel about a black girl who believes she cannot be valued or loved without looking white.
