Holy Trinity is planting a garden! We are joining a new program from Plainsong Farm. Produce from our garden will go to the local food banks we support.
Want to volunteer?
Learn more about the Garden and how you can help, plus see more photos as work progresses, on this website under About Holy Trinity > Good News Garden.
This year, our Easter message is Alleluia Anyway! And Father Peter put together a great video of so many of us recording that message!
Now, he’s asking us to stop for a second or two during our “daily grind” and video ourselves and our families saying our final proclamation for our Sunday services: Let us bless the Lord! He plans to “drop” the videos into our Facebook Live Sunday services as long as we can’t be worshipping in person.
- Record a very short video (3-5 seconds) of you and/or your family proclaiming, “Let us bless the Lord!“
- Email it to: email@example.com.
That’s it! Thanks for participating!
“The blood of Christ, the cup of salvation.” The person who offers you the cup at communion and says these words to you is a Lay Eucharistic Minister (LEM). If you are already serving as a LEM or you’re a LEM wannabe, you need to meet the requirement for training.
On March 15 at 11:30 a.m. we’ll offer a second LEM training. This 30-minute class will focus on the practicalities of serving at Table – how to handle the bread and wine and napkins, AKA fair linen. Attending this session or the earlier one meets the Diocesan requirement for licensing as a LEM.
Thank you for your altar service!
Debbie Murphy is looking for members who want to embark on the “Invite, Welcome, Connect” adventure. It’s a program to really engage us in the deep work of evangelism. Which really comes down to how we:
- Invite people to come to Holy Trinity
- Welcome them when they walk in the doors
- Help them connect with us in doing Christ’s work in the world – whether they want to be a greeter, sing, help at The Pantry, or lead Morning Prayer in our Chapel (for example).
Invite, Welcome, Connect is a wonderful program endorsed by our presiding Bishop Michael Curry. It’s a way to help us examine who we are and what we’re doing (or not doing) now to invite, welcome and connect with new people, and decide if and how we want to make changes that might open our doors wider.
To begin with, we’ll be watching some Invite, Welcome, Connect videos and thinking about what we’re already doing right, followed by brainstorming what else we could try.
If this sounds interesting to you, meet with us on Sunday, November 3 right after coffee time. If you have any questions, please contact Debbie Murphy.
On Saturday June 15 from noon to 6 p.m. we, along with St. Mark’s, Two Churches, and St. Andrew’s, are hosting a booth at Pride Festival 2019 in Grand Rapids. Volunteers are needed to hand out water bottles, buttons, and answer questions.
The volunteering is easy and divided into 2 hour windows. Look for the sign up sheet in the Narthex.
Join our merry grounds crew on Saturday, June 8 at 10:30 a.m. to spread mulch around Holy Trinity church and the Diocesan office building. Please email Debbie Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 513-708-2541 to let her know you’ll show up and to see what tools to bring. Oh, and wear your garden gloves! Thank you in advance for your help!
There will be a funeral service for long-time Holy Trinity member Bettiann Turner here at the church at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 18. Please contact Nancy Atwell if you would be able to help with some light refreshments for after the service.
