Reconciling in Christ

hank you to everyone who came and participated in the first of our Forum’s on becoming a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation. We had a great turnout of just over 50 people. Due to the size of the gathering, all future forums will take place in the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings. Thank you to the choir for accommodating these important conversations. During this first meeting, we talked about what a RIC congregation is and heard from people about topics they would like to talk about. We also laid out ground rules for our conversations and how to conduct ourselves when speaking and listening to each other. The Forum was recorded and is now available in our library on either a DVD or a USB drive that you can take home to watch. You can find the DVDs in our library underneath the Prayer Shawls. Our next Sunday morning gathering will be Sept. 22. The topic for that day is “Why is it important to become a RIC congregation?” Also, don’t forget, if you can’t make it on Sunday morning, we are holding additional meetings on the Wednesdays following the Sunday we meet, immediately following our Wednesday evening worship. Therefore, our next Wednesday evening conversation will take place on Sept. 25. We hope you can join us.

Funeral Team

We are looking for someone to head up a Funeral Team. We have volunteers to help, but looking for someone to lead. This person is responsible for recruiting and organizing the food aspect of a funeral. It is an important part of what we do at Holy Trinity. If you are interested, please contact Pastor Tim for more details. pastortim@htelc.com

End 68 Hours of Hunger

End 68 Hours of Hunger: We would like to thank everyone who has helped with our team that packs food for the program 'End 68 Hours of Hunger' for the city of Portsmouth!! We have had a very successful year thanks to the help of many! On Thursday, June 13th we met for the last time for the 2018 -2019 school year. Thanks to a great team of volunteers from Holy Trinity, we were responsible for packing 663 bags of food this school year! By spending 45 minutes each session over the course of 7 packing days, we were able to provide 4,641 meals to children in need from Portsmouth. This is a wonderful example of how the work of a few can help stop hunger on a local level. If you are interested in joining our team in the fall, please email the church office. We always welcome new participants!!
