Confirmation Classes are Here!

It has been the tradition at Trinity that our 8th & 9th grade students participate in the Confirmation experience and officially join the church and confirm their baptism vows on Pentecost Sunday.
Confirmation Sunday is June 14, 2015. Please set this date aside now.
We are also looking for Confirmation Mentors to assist in the process. Mentors will commit to meeting with their student and review and discuss topics that will be preassigned. If you have a heart to be a Mentor to one of our fantastic kids, please let Pastor John know ASAP.

Feeding the Hungry in Bushnell Park

Trinity is continuing the partnership with Christ Cathedral Church in Hartford to feed the homeless and indigent people in Bushnell Park on Saturday afternoons.  Many Hartford area churches take a turn preparing and serving lunches, and we will have responsibility for four days in 2015:

April 25, July 25, and October 24.

Help will be needed to bake cookies, brownies or bars, make sandwiches, pack lunches, load/unload the truck or cars and serve lunch. 
Baking is done in advance of the day and lunches are made and assembled at the church, generally beginning at approximately 1 PM.  Serving is generally done by 3:15 – 3:30 and we carpool each way.
If you would like more information or would like to help with any of the process, please contact Donna Myers 860-688-7230.  We would love to have you join us in this fun, fulfilling outreach!
