    Our Pastors will never request your help or financial assistance via e-mail or text. Be aware of hoaxes being perpetuated in which religious leaders are falsely being represented as requesting aid,

    contributions from or “discreet discussions” with parishioners. Do NOT respond to such requests!

    The Trinity Family extends prayers for comfort and peace to Debby Neighbarger and her family at the death of her father,

    Dean Elson, this past Thursday, September 24.

  • Trinity’s Next Outdoor Worship

    Sunday, October 4 at 11:00 am, will be our final outdoor worship in the Wheeler Street Courtyard (weather permitting). You may worship either in person if you are so inclined and are willing to comply with COVID19 social distancing guidelines, or online via YouTube. This service will be live- streamed rather than pre-recorded as are most of our services during the pandemic. As that Sunday is also celebrated as the day to honor St. Francis of Assisi, we will incorporate a blessing of the animals into our worship. Plan to attend and to bring your family’s furry/feathered friends!

    Everyone who attends Trinity should be in the church directory

    we hope to publish soon. We know that some of you have not

    had a picture taken. If that’s you, please call

    Cheryl Mays Comen at 253-426-2536 to arrange an informal

    photo shoot.
