February at Trinity

During the month of February we are collecting canned vegetables and fruit, tuna fish, soups, peanut butter and jelly, snacks, cereal, crackers, rice, condiments, flour, sugar and other non-perishable food items to be distributed to our neighbors in need. This food will be given to the Open Pantry. You are invited to bring these items when you come to worship and leave them in the totes at the back of the sanctuary.  Please join us in helping those who are food insecure in our community.

You may notice that half of the sanctuary light fixtures have been removed and replaced with temporary lights.  The chandeliers are being restored and you can follow the progress of the restoration on our Sanctuary Light Restoration page. 

During the month of February, we will be uplifting local Black History information relative to our area through special bulletin inserts.  If you are unable to join us for worship, you can access this information on our Media page.
