Burial Services – A service for Liz Kelsey will be held on Wednesday, June 26 at 11 am at Christ Church, Exeter. (There will be quite a few going, so carpools are an option). Another service will be held at Trinity, on Saturday August 3.

 

Summer worship schedule – Our two service schedule (8 and 9:30) continues through the end of August.  We now have a new liturgy.

 

Time and Talent – Please pray about how you might feel called to participate in the life of Trinity this year, and fill out the Time and Talent form in your bulletin. We wish we had added one more category, for altar flowers, so if you are interested in either arranging or coordinating the flowers, please add that to your form.

 

Stewardship in Action – Do you know that we are very thankful to our resident clergy for all they do, and grateful to Jay Hutchinson for preaching this morning?
