Hello Trinity Friends!
Welcome back to worship this Sunday with our special Rally Back service – made even more special because we will be worshiping in the Fellowship Hall. During the service we will celebrate our Christian Education programs with a look back at this summer’s Vacation Bible Camp, we will covenant with our leaders and volunteers, and we will continue the celebration at our annual Church Family Picnic at Camp Tillicum in the afternoon.
A reminder that roofing work is in full swing at Trinity, but nearing completion. This Sunday we will move our worship to the Fellowship Hall. Please use the McIntyre Street entrance when you arrive for church on Sunday.
There are a number of important announcements and upcoming events I would like to draw your attention to. Please read through them here and in your Sunday bulletin.
The Junior Choir, directed by Laura Farris and accompanied by Chris Mogan, resumes rehearsal this Sunday September 8th in the Choir Room at 9:30 am. All young people who like to sing will be warmly welcomed. For more information speak with Laura – contact the church office for her contact information.
