This is a time of open conversation about the highs and lows of the congregation’s mission in our community; challenges and joys of our lay leadership; how we might be better connected to each other; what may be needed to be a more effective leacher; and even questions about “what does the Synod Council do anyway?!” NOTE: The Synod Council will be meeting on Friday and Saturday, September 14th and 15th at Trinity for their business meeting.

Remembering Our Baptism
The Baptismal Font is open with water in the basin for you to dip your fingers into and then make the “sign of the cross” on your forehead to remember your baptism. In baptism we are claimed by God, “sealed by the Holy Spirit, and marked with the cross of Christ forever.”

Help Needed at Trinity Food Pantry
