Welcome to our Guests!

We are so delighted that you are here visiting with us this morning. please join us after the service for a cup of coffee in the parish hall.  We would love to have the opportunity to get to know you better!

2018 Floral Dedication Calendar

The new Altar Guild Floral Dedications Calendar is posted in the narthex and ready for you to put your names in.  The weeks are marked out for Lent and Advent.  It is possible to share a week’s dedication.  Please remember to let Caroline know what your dedication should read for the bulletin.

Altar Flowers

The flowers on the altar today are dedicated to the Glory of God and in Thanksgiving for the comfort and joy of our great Advocate, the Holy Spirit, on the day of Pentecost.

“Welcome to the Bible” Book Study

In the church we are seeking to know and be known by the God of the Bible.  Please join us for the next several weeks during the Sunday School hour at 9:30 AM as we break open the scriptures with a  book study entitled “Welcome to the Bible”.  We hope this introduction to the Bible will be an invitation to a life-long habit of reading the scriptures.

Memorial Day

the Administrative Office will be closed on Monday, May 28th and will reopen on Tuesday, May 29th.

Picnic in the Park–June 10th

Join us (and bring a friend or neighbor) as we celebrate the Holy Eucharist and have a picnic at City Park on Amulet the morning of Sunday, June 10th.  Bring your folding chair.  We’ll have the fried chicken; folks are welcome to bring sides and desserts.  Contact the office for more information.

Intersessions Team and Summer Study

We are switching back to the long form Prayers of the People now that Lent is over and therefore will be speaking names aloud again.  If anyone would like to participate in developing prayers to be said, please contact Caroline in the office.  We would like to create a team for this ministry.  If there is interest, we can start a study of Ormonde Plater’s book, “Intercession” (we were using the O Plater cycle of prayers for quite a while until he passed away) which would be during the Sunday School hour during the summer.

ECW Fundraising Items

Don’t forget that ECE has a items for sale in the Parish Hall after services, and there are mugs for sale to benefit the kitchen renovation.  Congregants are encouraged to give recipes to Soni Sers or Kari Stokes for collection into a cookbook that will be sold later this year.  Please participate and help With needed improvements to our space.

Soaps With A Mission

Marion Keator has brought a collection of handmade soaps that are in the office for sale to benefit missions.  Please come by and look (and smell) and BUY.  They are $5/bar and proceeds go to the artisans in the Dominican Republic.  Each soap has the name of the maker on it.

The group is also collecting deodorant, disposable razors, facial tissue, feminine products, soaps, shampoo, toothbrushes, and toothpaste, gently used shirts and used plastic shopping bags. Also tax deductible donations can be made out to NSU Foundation, with “Food Pantry” in the subject line. If you have any questions, contact Joe Sers at 357-1052.

Cane River Food Pantry

The local food bank is requesting cornbread mixes for the approaching holidays to put in the donation boxes. If you would like to donate to the CRFP or volunteer your time, please contact Cindy Allen, our liaison, for more information. Boxes are usually put together the first week of the month. You can bring mixes to the office or narthex.

 

Make a Difference in the Lives of People around the World

For the past number of years, Trinity Parish has presented and supported a Mission Gift Fair which sold gifts, food, clothing and other articles provided by Fair Trade Organizations.  These agencies work in dozens of countries to develop safe working conditions and pay fair wages to the artisans and farmers who produce the items, providing them an opportunity for sustainable work and a way to safely lift themselves and their families out of poverty.  The participants are truly taught “how to fish, not just given a fish”.  The money that was made from the sales at our fairs was given back to the organizations so that they could continue their programs. Even though we are not having a Mission Gift Fair this year, we urge you to continue to support this Parish Outreach project by shopping on the internet sites of the following:
