Adult Formation:  

On Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 6:30 p.m. we will begin a new Adult Formation experience – Talie Alexander will be leading us through three Godly Play sessions and we will learn how adults can enter into this way of understanding the narratives of Scripture.  Godly Play isn’t just for children anymore–many people are using it at nursing homes and hospitals with adults.  The series will last three weeks, and should be an enjoyable and enlightening time!

Trinity Financials: Important parish financial information is available for your review in the undercroft. Please take this opportunity to review the 2017 budget as adopted by the Bishop’s Committee, a summary of the Building Project financials, and a narrative summary of the parish financial situation. This will help prepare you for the Annual Meeting on January 29th.


Bishop’s Visit and Baptism/Confirmation/Reception:  Bishop Smith will be with us April 2nd.  If you would like to be baptized or have children you would like baptized, this is the next opportunity to do that. If you have been attending Trinity but have not joined in any official way, this is the time to do that, and it can happen in a couple of different ways. If you have never been confirmed in the Episcopal Church or any other tradition, you can be confirmed when Bishop Smith is here. If you come from a tradition where you have been confirmed you can be received into the Episcopal Church.  Please speak with Carrol soon if you would like to explore baptism, confirmation or reception.

Home Eucharist:  We do not yet have Home Eucharists scheduled for 2017. If you would be willing to host one, please speak to Carrol. 

Save the Date:
  • Sunday, January 29, After Church – Trinity Annual Meeting and Potluck Lunch
food-pantryFood Depot:

Our Food Depot items for January include Canned Soup (avoid creamed soups).  January is a cold month and soup provides a warm, filling, and nutritious food source.

Snow Removal: Please consider donating to the snow removal fund to pay Mike Combs. There is a box on the piano in the undercroft for your contribution. If you would rather shovel, let Krista know.

Episcopal News Service Tidbits:  This week, Episcopal News Service stories include a piece addressing the church’s involvement in Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Vermont diocese purchase of a solar array, and an account of the work of the Holy Land Institute

Lectionary Readings :
