Come visit Pastor Paul under the umbrella and have some good conversation in our garden - various days this summer. Look for the umbrella to see if he is "in"!


Construction on the School Building
You may have seen the pictures on Facebook. We are creating an ADA accessible basement with a ramp and new ADA bathrooms. In addition, lintels on the 2nd story windows (behind the Rectory) are being replaced as well as some loose bricks. If you want to see the work, please see Pastor Paul.


Summer Fellowship Schedule
During summer we will offer lemonade and iced tea on our stairs along with cookies. We will also host Summer barbecues on "the back 40" our back yard: August 17 & September 7. All at 1 p.m. Bring something to share: salad, dessert, fruit, veggies. We will provide the "fixings", drinks, plates/cups/utensils, etc. To help in this venture, email Jessica Tusing at sunshinerun424@icloud.com.


Three-week mosaic workshop for youth of all ages
Check out the beautiful mosaics on 3 benches here at Trinity: the Front steps and the Back garden.
