Property Team

Every Thursday morning, the Property Team works for 2-3 hours around the grounds of Holy Trinity to spruce it up before our Sunday worship services.  Their usual tasks include  minor building repairs, mowing the grass, indoor cleaning, setting up heavy equipment, and painting.  After finishing the tasks for the day, they meet for 30 minutes for coffee, snacks, and fellowship.  If you are interesting in joining or helping out, contact office@htelc.com

Our current Property Team leader is David Mercer.

I imagine many of you have tired of hearing about the "fire" and the fallout from it. I suppose that is a natural reaction to a degree. On the other hand, there is always something to be learned from these unanticipated events that seem to come along from time to time. One of my nightmares involves the scenario of an otherwise minor fire that becomes a major problem as a result of combustible clutter, particularly loose paper, paste board, cardboard, cloth, and similar items that can be easily ignited and burn readily. As fire experts tell us, a fire needs three things to exist...heat, air, and fuel. We often have no control over the heat component (e.g., an electrical problem) and air is all around us, but we can control clutter which can provide the fuel. We have made progress in managing clutter, but there is always more to do. It is in all of our best interests to be sensitive to combustible clutter in our building by getting rid of items that are no longer needed and by properly storing items that we keep.
