Fall Worship Schedule begins Sunday, September 8. On this Sunday, we will return to our 8:30 & 11:00 AM worship schedule.
Dover Friendly Kitchen will be on Tuesday, August 27 at 4:00 PM at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Dover, across from the library. If you wish to help out, speak to Bonnie Sanders or Lara Scammon. Sign up for help or baking cookies at the clipboard by the nametags.
School of Lay Ministry is a wonderful way to learn more about your faith, Christianity with a focus on Lutheranism, and our worship book, the Bible. During worship, Jill and Jerry will be sharing a Ministry Minute and then be available during Fellowshp to answer any questions you may have about the program and their experience. There are others in our congregation who have also experienced this great learning opportunity.
New Grounds Coffee House, hosted by Dave Mercer’s band, will be here at Holy Trinity on Friday, August 16 at 6:00 PM. Listen to local bands and enjoy some light refreshments!
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!!
Operation Blessing continues to provide food to clients in the summer months. They are always in need of pasta and sauce and macaroni and cheese, and condiments such as catsup, mustard and mayonnaise. Toilet paper and paper towels are also welcome. We thank you for your continued support. Operation Blessing is open to clients who meet certain financial requirements. They must make appointments to get free clothing, food, and household items. Thank you for your continued support. Should you like more information about this mission, please see Lois Laurence.
