Two Important Notes:

1. This will be the only eChimes for August. Please note the Sunday servers list for the month later in this email. Have a great month!!
2. AT&T is updating their website manager software, so our website cannot be updated right now - the bulletin and eChimes posted online are old. Updates will be made ASAP.


During the summer,  the Sunday School will be working on small tasks in the garden in the front of the Trinity.  We will listen to and try to learn this song which has a very catchy tune so if you hear us humming, hum along!  Or take a listen to Garden Song here and learn it!
PETE SEEGER "Garden Song"
Inch by inch, row by row,
Gonna make this garden grow.
Gonna mulch it deep and low,
Gonna make it fertile ground.
Inch by inch, row by row,
Please bless these seeds I sow.
Please keep them safe below
'Til the rain comes tumbling down.

During the Rector’s Vacation, July 17 through Aug 7, the Rev.

Future Trinity & Jazz

For further discussion and fellowship, members of the Future Trinity will be gathering at the Barcelona Restaurant 263 E. Whittier St. in German Village on August 3 from 7-9 p.m. to enjoy the cool jazz of the Jacob Reed trio. Jacob is a parishioner of Trinity Church, occasionally providing drumming for our morning liturgies. All members of the congregation are encouraged to come take part in the fellowship and enjoy Jacob's wonderful music.
