this weekRenovation, Painting - a group project for Lent

Spend some upcoming Saturdays with fellow Trinity members, as we give a much needed facelift to the 3rd floor rental space in the Parish House. In an effort to make this space more attractive to potential tenants, basic renovation is planned, including washing walls, painting, replacing and cleaning ceiling tiles. Many hands will make this a fun and easy project. Work starts at 9:00 a.m. this Saturday, March 3 all help is welcome - contact Nick Tepe here for details.

A memorial service in thanksgiving for the life of Joseph DeVennish will be held Saturday, March 3 at 10:00 a.m. in Trinity Church.

tulipsthis weekCalling all gardeners

The Lay Weeders, the group that plants and maintains the Trinity garden, will meet Sunday, March 4, after the 10:30 service, in the library. We will set the date for this year's spring planting, and explore the possibility of holding a Trinity plant sale in conjunction with this year's German Village Garage Sale on May 12. We'll also discuss offering a two or three week adult forum in early summer on the stewardship of the earth.
All who love to dig in the dirt are welcome.

Rabbi Jeffrey K. Salkin will be the preacher at both of our liturgies this Sunday, Mach 4. Click this image for the complete flier.
