    Regular Sunday Schedule Resumes August 12

    We will return to our regular Sunday schedule on Sunday, August 12, 2018: 8:00 am Holy Eucharist, Rite I 9:00 am Breakfast 9:30 am Sunday School/Adult Christian Education 10:30 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II Please note that the 5 p.m. Sunday service will not start back on this day. Callie will soon be sending word out about when this service will resume. We are once again asking for volunteers to cook breakfast on Sunday mornings. If you would like to sign up, please see the sign-up sheet in the kitchen, or call the office to indicate which date you would like. The regular Wednesday schedule for children and youth will return on Wed., Aug. 15. Our Adult Christian Education offerings for Aug. 12, 19, and 26 will focus on the actions of General Convention and we invite all to come for discussion and conversation. Following the Labor Day holiday and Parish Retreat, we will have two offerings beginning on Sunday, Sept. 16. Fr. Andy will begin a Confirmation/Inquirers class for anyone wishing to be confirmed, reaffirmed, or received by Bishop Sloan when he visits on December 16, or for anyone simply wishing to learn more about the Episcopal Church. Callie will have a class offering as well. It always feels good to get back into a routine once school begins. We ask that you continue to make Trinity a part of that routine.

    The EfM program is preparation for the ministry to which we are called. It is that vocation for which we pray at the end of the Eucharist: "And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve

    you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord."
