Week of November 24, 2019

With so many things going on this week, I wanted to share with you a few things happening at Trinity.

First, my thanks to everyone who has filled out a pledge card and returned it to the office.  Every card has come in with the hope of seeing the ministries of Trinity Church grow and prosper.  I also appreciate everyone who wrote in to me and/or the Vestry to share your thoughts about the future.  I can attest to the fact that we have read and reflected on each one of your letters, and if you have not heard back from us, you should be soon.

For those who haven’t turned in a card yet, it is not too late to make a difference, but we need your responses soon because the Vestry will be meeting in the weeks to come to discuss next year’s mission plan.

There is a lot of noise coming from downstairs in the lower level of the parish hall as the new flooring for the Jackson Kemper Room and the Sunday School classrooms is going in.  For those unfamiliar with the story, a while back the lower level, library, and atrium was vandalized and the carpet, walls, and furniture in those rooms damaged.  We were able to use the proceeds from the insurance settlement to fund most of the work being done to restore and improve the area.  Once the new floors are finished, we can start working on the reorganizing of the rooms downstairs.

I know this is a long way out, but I was informed by Bishop Bascom’s office that her official visitation to the area for the purposes of Confirmation and Reception of new members will be in October 2020.  The good news is that the timeline gives us a chance to put together a robust program of educating our newest members and helping them find their place at Trinity.  So if you are interested in getting Confirmed or Received next year, please let me know.

As always, thank you for everything you do here in our parish.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Rob+
