Awesomeness of the Week

These are the people that make Trinity work!

Ken Johnson

Ken is one of many Trinity members who is always in the background, getting things done here.  But, he also spends a lot of time working with one of Habitat for Humanity’s programs called “Operation Playhouse” to help build playhouses for military families.  Most recently, Ken was spotted at a WAMS Works event here in Worcester building a playhouse to give to a Coast Guard Family. We appreciate all the ways that Ken serves at […]

The painting project is complete

The painting of the exterior walls of Jeppson Hall and the Education Wing has been recently finished and it looks great!  The interesting part of this project is that it involves faithful people who are no longer with us.  We give thanks for the generosity of those who have died and remembered Trinity in their estate planning and wills and left bequests to Trinity.  Those monies helped fund the House of the Lord and the […]

Trinity and Worcester Pride

Worcester Pride’s annual festivities ran for a week and ended on Saturday, September 7th with a parade and festival. Trinity had a group marching in the parade.  They started at Institute Park, walked past Trinity (where additional Trinity folks were set up passing out water), down Main Street to City Hall. Trinity set up a booth at the festival where there was entertainment, food and vendors. Our people passed out more free water, information about […]

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 […]

Winter Basketball League Organizers

Ellie Gilmore is a community organizer from Worcester Common Ground (a Community Development Corporation). Together, Jake and Ellie worked together to make the 2019 Winter Basketball League come together.

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 […]
