New Process for Vouchers - Staffing Transition in Finance Office

We are delighted to announce that Lori Rohrbacher will return to employment with

Trinity Church as Finance Manager! You may recall that Lori moved last summer to be

closer to family, and she returns to us now in a remote capacity.


Working closely with Kim Merrill, our Communications Director, and Noel Bellesheim,

our Treasurer, Lori will help us modernize our processes and procedures so that this

position, which is one day a week, can be done virtually.


As a first step, vouchers can now be submitted virtually. There is a new page on Trinity's website (Vouchers). Please use this online form as a way to submit vouchers. If you need help learning this new system, please contact Kim.

Lunch Sunday June 23rd 

Yes you read that right. Instead of breakfast fare we will be grilling up brats and burgers. Serving up the World's Best Baked Beans, Asian slaw and Cornbread pudding. Lunch at 10:45----why not!!



Join us in the Glover room after service. All are welcome!!!  

Our exploration of the Book of Genesis with the aid of Marilynne Robinson's new book, Reading Genesis, continues on June 16. You may be familiar with Robinson's works of fiction such as Housekeeping and the Gilead quartet. In this work of nonfiction, Robinson considers the profound meanings and promise of God's enduring covenant with humanity as they are presented in Genesis. We'll gather in the Johnson library after the 9:30 service on June 16 and July 7 and 14. On June 16, we'll cover Chapters 11-20 of Genesis, which roughly correspond to pages 67-121 of Robinson's book. But you don't have to read all this in order to attend. The material is familiar, after all! And how appropriate that we will turn our attention to Father Abraham on Father's Day!

Miss Frances would like to thank the families of Trinity for the generous appreciation gift! I am so grateful for another great year with your wonderful children!

Nathaniel Grummons is the oldest son of Samuel and Carrie Grummons. As the oldest of four boys, Nathaniel has always shown himself to be mature and responsible, rising to the task of nurturing his little brothers while never missing an opportunity to annoy them as any good big brother does. 

 

Nathaniel's main interests growing up have been music and science. He picked up the violin at age 4 and played until he became more interested in piano at age 8. Once he moved with his family to Newtown he put those lessons on hold and picked up the trumpet, joining marching band in 8th grade and then focusing on marching trumpet, playing French horn in the wind ensemble and synthesizer in the Winter Percussion group. He picked up piano again in the past few years and has filled his house with all sorts of music. When he is not playing music, Nathaniel enjoys everything science fact and fiction related.

 

Having gotten involved in Trinity post Covid, Nathaniel did not have many opportunities to become a part of the group, but he did volunteer with the nursery and participated in some of the youth group activities, a particular favorite memory of his is the day they did the escape room.

 

Nathaniel is graduating from Newtown High School with plans to attend UMASS Amherst with a major in Astrophysics with a goal of getting his Ph.D. and working in research.
