November 12, 2017 is Consecration Sunday. During this special stewardship service, we will present our Estimate of Giving Cards in the offering plate. You are encouraged to discern your Estimate of Giving before coming to church, and bring the card with you (click here to download the Estimate of Giving Card). You may also write it up during the offertory. We will celebrate during worship the gifts we offer together in response to God’s love for us. Musically, we will be led by the talents of Ryan and Tucker Benton. After the service, we will continue the Consecration Day Celebration with a Pot Luck Brunch. We invite you to bring a breakfast casserole, fruit, or breakfast pastries to share for the brunch. Join in as we celebrate the things we can do together and look forward to a great morning at Holy Trinity.

More Good News! When a church has serious repairs, like the steeple, we fret. We wonder how we are going to pay for it. Some churches feel defeated by the circumstances of major repairs. Not Holy Trinity. We set up a plan to provide the opportunity to contribute to our steeple and our generous people exceeded our goal in two weeks. We asked for $25,000 and we received $32,320. (The additional funds will support other building maintenance projects.) We now have the contracts signed, the down payments made, and we are planning the days that the work will be done. Special Thanks to Roger Bailey and Larry Grant and all the Steeple Project Team who have worked hard in getting estimates and bids and presenting their plan to Church Council.
Wednesdays at 11:30am

“Next to the word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.”
The treasure of music is something that lasts a lifetime. Time and again I have observed within the church or working in nursing homes, that music sticks with us. It becomes part of who we are. In the words of Helen Kemp, an icon is church music, stating in one of her warm-ups: “Body, mind, spirit, voice; It takes a whole person to sing and rejoice.” Perhaps this is why the words of hymns, often taken directly from scripture, stay with us long after many other capabilities have gone.
We invite you, all of you, to come and join us in singing and rejoicing! We have choirs for ages Kindergarten through adult. What you sing-will stick with you, and you will have a lot of fun!
