FlintWe all know of the water crisis in Flint. Trinity is partnering with local Episcopal parishes to help alleviate the burden to the residents there of obtaining safe drinking water. Moneys collected at Trinity Church for this will be sent to help with purchasing and distributing water for people in need. Contributions in any amount will be greatly appreciated - simply send a check made to Trinity Episcopal Church with "Flint Water" on the memo line. For further details speak with Kent Phillips.

We remember all who work for peace around the world, and especially this day we pray for our nation and other international partners discerning war and peace and wisdom in this time of terror and violence. Remembering friends and family members related to this community, we pray for Specialist Hannah Stout, Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Matt Schumann, Captain Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
For peace in a war torn world, especially in Syria, Iraq and Iran. In this season of light we pray for St. Elias Greek Orthodox Church, Damascus, Syria. We continue to ask God for a deeper compassion and greater courage to offer help to refugees and migrants and all in need
We renew our commitments to serve the neediest and most easily forgotten in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time – Lynn Giljahn, Stuart Phillips, Lori Clark, August Giles, Judy McKissick,  Henry Webster, Lucia Benaquisto , Pauline Austin, Linda Burton, Ava Guglielmi, Jonie Johnson, Dick Oman, Dave Mozano,  Jan Heston, Frances Bennekamper, Gayle Nash,  Sharon Whaley, Hal Duryee, David and those in prison and others whom we name silently or aloud.
