Awesomeness of the Week

These are the people that make Trinity work!

Trinity Youth Go “Back to the Beach”

Each September after Labor Day, there’s a Synod-wide youth gathering affectionately called “Hammo” (because it started out at Hammonasset Beach State Park in CT).  For the past three years, the gathering moved to Camp Calumet due to the state park not being available.  The theme of the gathering this year was “Back to the Beach” because the event moved back to beach at Hammonasset!  Eight youth from Trinity along with adult leaders, Kathy and Jena, […]

Giving Thanks for Mindee & Mary – Awesomeness of the Week!

There were two, mid-week celebrations at Trinity the week of August 18. We celebrated the 15 years of service that Mindee has given to Trinity. Mindee comes to Trinity every week to help out in the office. She is always positive, helpful, kind and excited to meet people and she is really good at paying attention to detail and remembering things.  It’s hard not to smile when you meet Mindee when she greets you with […]

The Preschool’s Pickle Jar

Each week when the TLC Preschoolers gather for chapel, they bring coins with them to fill the Pickle Jar. The coins are dropped in one by one and it’s fun to shake the jar and hear the noise that all the coins make!  It’s called the “Pickle Jar” because the money collected is used to help someone who’s “in a pickle.” They most recently donated a full pickle jar’s worth of money to the Interfaith […]

Scones for School A Community oriented ministry

                                       Last weekend,  some of the Tabitha Circle and others from Trinity, led by Lori Doyle, made and sold scones for the annual “Scones for School” to assist Concordia Lutheran Church in Worcester in providing backpacks and school supplies for students.  Lori had the great idea to combine the scones sale with the farmstand that sets up each […]

An awesome week in DC with the youth!

Holy smokes…what an awesome week it was in DC with the youth!     22 youth (8 of them from Trinity) spent a week together laughing, learning and listening.  There were so many good memories made on the trip but one thing that stands out is the boldness of our youth.  A new element for this year’s mission trip was education, learning about advocacy.  The ELCA Advocacy office came to us to talk to us […]

Trinity Tots & Maggie Kilcoyne

Another example of how things get started….Maggie Kilcoyne had an idea and made it happen! Over a year ago, Maggie thought it would be fun to have some time set aside during the day for adults taking care of kids (who are not yet in school) to come together for play and fellowship at Trinity.  We have the space, let’s use it!  From that idea, Trinity Tots was born. It’s a laid back morning of […]
