9:30 a.m. Adult Bible Study this Sunday

This Sunday we continue our study of I Timothy at 9:30 AM in the South Parish Hall. We will discuss chapters 1 and 3. Breakfast will be served. 

Anglican 101+ @ 12:15 PM in the North Parish Hall 

Join us for a discussion on Anglican methods of scripture interpretation right after the 10:30 AM service in the North Parish Hall. We will explore questions like, “What is scripture?,” “How is Anglican interpretation of scripture unique?,” and “Do I have to take the bible literally to take it seriously?” This series of Anglican 101 classes are designed especially for folks new to the church and/or considering confirmation, but all are welcome and encouraged to attend. 


All Saints’ Parish Potluck Nov. 3rd

Next up on the hospitality calendar is our Parish Potluck on All Saints’ Sunday, Nov. 3rd, right after the 10:30 service. The S. Parish Hall will be festively set up and ready to receive your offering of something yummy to share with your Trinity family.

As it is the day when we remember those who have died and gone before us, we are suggesting you make something from a recipe from one of your “Dear Departeds” - I know my mother’s food often contained a can of cream of something soup or an entire stick of butter! But I’m thinking of making my grandmother Rowena’s wonderful rice pudding, and propping a photo of her next to it with a card saying what the dish is.

How about finding a photo of a good cook in your family and making your favorite dish of theirs - they’ll be great conversation starters. Please do come - it’s such a fun way to be together and get to know each other better. Num num…

Thanks to Carolyn Munch for weeding, pruning & tidying up the landscaping around Trinity!

Each scarf is $30, and $5 of each sale will buy a gun lock which will be given to a home with an unsecured hand gun.
