A Word From Your Priest-Sept

Summer is almost gone andFall is right around the corner. We even had a full eclipse of the sun across the United States and we are all still here.

Fall also means back to school and for many of us it means getting back to a routine that vacationsand summer trips have interrupted.  I know that also includes getting back to our worship and activitieshere at Trinity.

At the writing of this article, we have just finished a very successful event that Tiffany coordinated with Faith Link and that wasthe Back to School Bash. Trinity helped serve over 700 people providingseveral backpacks, crosskey chains, bottles of water, and countless blessings of the backpacks and of the students for headingback to school. It was a greatevent and allowed Trinity to have a positive impact in our community. I thank Tiffany and all of the manyTrinity volunteers who helped to make this event a success.

Next we will turn our attention to another event that will allow us to work with another of the Faith Link programs called “Paws to Help”. We are considering inviting them to participate with us as a part of our Blessing of the Animals service to be held in our new parking lot. The Paws to Help program is a volunteer program designed to help Seniors keep their pets.

On another note, we continue to work with our choir in search of a new director. I very much continue to appreciate the hard work of those dedicated choir members and our organist to keep the fine music going that Trinity is known for. We have actually seen growth in our choir during the last year and hope all of you (and more) will return this fall.

I want to strongly encourage our youth and parents to reengage with the Sunday School, youth activities, Acolytes, and other programs that are so important to the church. Trust me when I tell youthe leadership of the youth programs,the Rector, and the Vestryare all committed to making thesemeaningful and fun. All we need isthe committed participation from theyouth and parents. If you have some ideas, we just need you to show up and share them.

You can see we have a lot of exciting things happening. Please,come and be a part of what God is doing here at Trinity, and as always, bring a friend.

God bless you one and all,

Father Paul+

A Word From Your Priest-August

Summer is Flying by.  Where has all the time gone? We have had so many exciting activities going on this summer and there is still more to come. At the time I am writing this article, Beverly and I have just returned from Peterkin (theWest Virginia Episcopal Diocese summer camp). I was asked to be the Chaplain for Family Camp and also to teach the adult formation class. This was Beverly and my first time to attend camp at Peterkin.  Meanwhile, Vacation BibleSchool continued from June 28 through July 26 with First LutheranChurch and our Sister Church,Good Shepherd. The children’s portion and the adult portion were big successes. Olivia Ramsay attendedthe Episcopal Youth Event in Oklahoma. Preparations for the Book Sale are well underway. The parking lot was paved. Several of our parishioners took a bus trip to seethe Ark replica. We had a visit from the Children’s Choir from Charlotte,N C . Our Family Movie Night continues. I am sure I missed a few events, but you can see how busy it has been this summer. As we prepare for back toschool and the return of the choir, Tiffany is working with Faith Link to try and coordinate a couple of activities.The first is to have Trinity and I provide blessings for the backpacks that Faith Link is giving out tothose that need them. The other event is to invite one of the FaithLink programs called “Paws to Help” to participate with us as apart of our Blessing of The Animals service hopefully to be advertised and held in our new parking lot.Paws to Help is a volunteer program designed to help Seniors keep their pets.

Finally I want to introduce a new ministry here at Trinity. Over the last few months I have been working with John Brownfield who has been discerning a call to be a Lay Eucharistic Visitor. Many of you already know that John has a passion for visiting and encouraging our fellow parishioners when they are in the hospital or home sick. As we go through the process of getting John licensed as a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, John will also beable to take these individuals communion from the reserve sacrament as well. Most of the visits will be Sundays and Wednesdays. This I sbecause traditionally a Lay Eucharist Visitor leaves straight from the altar rail to visit the individual so that this ministry is an extension of the Eucharistic Service held at Trinity. We look forward to blessing this ministry and sending John off on his first visit upon obtaining his license from the Bishop.You can see we have a lot ofexciting things happening. Please,come and be a part of what God is doing here at Trinity, and as always, bring a friend.

God bless you one and all,

Father Paul+

DIRECTORY PICTURES – We are getting close to producing our in-house pictorial directory but we still need several family pictures. A draft of the directory is in the Memorial Library. If you have a picture you would like to use you may email it to Jim Full at news@trinity-church.org or you can drop off pictures to the office. We will also be taking pictures during coffee hour if that is more convenient. We want to get everyone’s picture so our directory will be complete.

 VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL – Vacation Bible School will continue one more Wednesday in July (26). The adult forum guest speaker will be from the Mormon Church.

WINDOW DECALS – We have purchased static cling car window decals to be placed on your car. The decal has the name and address of our church as well as a prayer for safe travel of all who ride in the car. The cost is $2.50 and they can be obtained from Fr. Paul or Susie.
