Confirmation Conversations!

We invite all those planning to be Confirmed or Received into the Episcopal Church to join in Confirmation Conversations this summer at Trinity Church. Rev. Andrea has collected a lovely list of both youth and adults, and there is still room for more to join.


Is God calling you to deepen your relationship with the Episcopal Church as a disciple of Christ? Please speak with Rev. Andrea with any questions.


We are announcing 6 opportunities for conversation this summer as we prepare for Bishop Laura Ahrens to visit Trinity Church on Sunday, September 15 th - when she will confirm and baptize both youth and adults.


Summer is full of travel and vacations, so we ask that you plan to attend 3 of these dates. In addition, you may also arrange a meeting with Rev. Andrea at the Church office if you wish. Readings, videos, and other ways of preparing for Confirmation or Reception will be announced when we gather.

New Process for Vouchers - Staffing Transition in Finance Office

We are delighted to announce that Lori Rohrbacher has returned 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.

Looking for Assistant Treasurers

We are looking for helpers to assist with the weekly counting of the Sunday plate. This ministry takes about 15 minutes, and if we get enough volunteers, you would only need to come in once a month. Please reach out to Kim if you are interested in helping out!

Trinity team was at Dorothy Day Hospitality House last Tuesday as usual. we served an outstanding cold meal since it was 90 degrees outside! We made 2 giant pots of cold chicken salad( see picture about 60 quarts) and 4 trays of black bean salad - served with watermelon. We served 155 meals plus another 135 of the usual cold sandwich, fruit and snack bags. And lots of water bottles! Our guests were very appreciative.


DD always appreciates people who sign up to make sandwiches. You need to provide 30 - only once a month if anyone is interested, see Nancy Cole.

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!
