What's Happening at Trinity?

 

Bike/Walk Compline in Delaware City!
Enjoy an evening bike ride or stroll with others on Thursday, July 27th, beginning at 7 pm from Delaware City's Battery Park. Following our one hour ride and walk, we will celebrate compline while watching the sunset from the battery. All are invited to join us, no walking or biking required for worship. Bring your water and your prayers and let us celebrate the creation that we are in the midst of God's creation.

Howdy! Trinity is heading to the Cowtown Rodeo on Saturday, August 12th for a night of roping, riding and getting a little rowdy! All are invited. Please reserve your spot by signing up or shooting an email to office@trinityparishde.org. Yeehaw!

Soft Space/ Pray Ground- You will notice that our Nave will look a little different as of Sunday, July 2nd with the introduction of the Pray Ground.  The front row on the left aisle will be converted into a soft space inviting and welcoming all our little ones to come and worship with their parents up close to where all the action takes place.  Kids learn best by observation and we, as a community of faith, long to create a space and place that welcomes and includes all, especially our young children.  The nursery and Sunday school will still be available for our little members but now there will also be a space just for them in our worship space. 

Introducing the Young Families @ Trinity Group! There have been so many young families that have joined the parish recently and we think it would be wonderful if these parents and their children could get to know each other and develop their faith together outside of Sunday Mass. Young Families @ Trinity will meet monthly. If you and your family would like to get more information about Young Families @ Trinity, please email Ryan Pryslak at ryanthesinger82@gmail.com or call 302-743-1201. And please feel free to invite friends from inside and outside of Trinity to attend.

A Reminder to Parishioners: Please, do not give money to those panhandling outside the church. While some of their stories seem compelling, we are trying to break the cycle of their activities. Contact our partners at Friendship House to learn how you can help our local homeless population.

 

Help Wanted

The “Welcome Committee” at Trinity would like to welcome anyone that is interested in the group. Their purpose is to streamline newcomers into the social aspects of our church. They will greet, gather names and introduce newcomers to congregants at the coffee hour.  Interested?  Contact Susan Fullerton at sjf1521@gmail.com or call (302) 354-5699.

 

Meal Train -- The Hospitality Committee is constantly looking for ways to enhance how they can better serve members of our community when they are in need.  When a friend or family member is in need, we often say “What can I do to help?”.  Many times the answer is to make a meal.   Unfortunately, sometimes a person will receive three meals one day and zero the next.  To help coordinate meals, Trinity has found Mealtrain.com.   Meal Train can be used for anyone in the parish from the arrival of a new baby, an injury or surgery, extended illnesses to condolences.  You simply identify that parishioner who could use a little support and enter their name, email address and home address as to where to drop off your meal.  A parishioner simply goes to the Mealtrain.com to schedule a day and time to deliver a meal.  They can easily see what is already scheduled and find the days where a meal could be needed.  It can be one meal or as many as that person wants.  If interested, please look at the Meal Train website for additional information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lynn Warner at lynncwarner@aol.com or 610-268-5728 or find me at coffee hour.  Thanks for your support.

We need you!  We are in need of people to help out during the services.  In particular, we need servers for 8:00 am, ushers and “members on duty” for 10:30 and servers and “members on duty” for the 9:30.  If you can help out, please speak with Terry, Ginny or Patty.

 

Are you a community volunteer? We find that many people who attend Trinity would like to be more engaged in the community, but they find it hard to make the right connections. To help solve this problem, if you are a volunteer at any agency in the community, please sign the sheet in the lobby or send an email to ashlinbray@aol.com. We would like to capture the full range of volunteer involvements, from ESL to Forgotten Cats, from individual tutoring to working in the foster care system, from serving meals at Epiphany House to...whatever! Thank you for helping this effort.


The Hospitality Committee is looking for volunteers! The time parishioners and visitors spend together after the Sunday services enjoying conversation, coffee and a light snack is a very important part of the life of the parish.  If you are willing to help keep this endeavor going, please contact Fred Thomas at 410-398-7944, fred.thomas2nd@gmail.com or Lynn Warner at 610-268-5728, lynncwarner@aol.com.
