Hello Trinity Friends,
The Sanctuary has been restored back to its original state and things are a little quieter around here this week now that Romeo and Juliet has finished its run. We have heard from many of the cast members of how welcome they were made to feel and what an incredibly active and special Church we have. We had approximately 500 people attend the performances as well as 130 students for the school show. Trinity’s matinee benefit performance brought in just over $1000 which goes towards Trinity’s General Funds. Thank-you once again, for your support and your willingness to embrace the arts.
This Sunday, is a Baptism Sunday. The Junior Choir will be singing this morning. Please join us for worship at 10:30 am.
