Community Church newsletter for January 23, 2022

By Community Church

The Community Church Newsletter for January 23, 2022 is now available.

In this week’s Community Church newsletter, we feature our new candidates for the Church Council, whom we will be voting on at the Annual Meeting on Sunday, January 30 at noon (via Zoom).  There are updates, and a fun picture of a frozen Deacon David (remember, he LOVES snow!). One piece of news that didn’t make it into the newsletter this week: You can now find a collection box in the coat room where you can bring old and unused eyeglasses and hearing aids. For 80 years, Lions Clubs’ have collected unwanted eyeglasses for redistribution to the poor in developing countries. We’ll run more information on this next week.

Community Church newsletter for January 9, 2022

By Community Church

The Community Church Newsletter for January 9, 2022 is now available.

In this issue of the Community Church, you’ll find a piece about Sunday’s service, “Solar Sunday at Holy Trinity” as we dedicate and bless the new solar panels now functioning on the church building’s roof!  We have some timely announcements, but not all of them made it into this issue, so please read on…

Due to the rapid increase in COVID cases, some events that had been planned for January are being postponed:

-The film that the Palestine-Israel group was going to screen in the Bartsch Rom on January 19, The Present, has been postponed.

-The Racial Justice Retreat has also been cancelled for now. An email was sent today to survey new dates.

-Godly Play and Trinity Village will not be taking place for at least the rest of this month in an abundance of caution for the youngest among us who have not yet had access to vaccinations.

-Confirmation classes for fully vaccinated students and staff can still meet in person, or join via Zoom, as preferred.

I’m sure there will be additional updates as we ramble our way through another COVID January, so stay tuned!  In the meantime, if you are in need of a blessing or a prayer, or if you can use help finding a COVID test or a booster, call us at church. We’re here for you with love and care!

Community Church for November 28, 2021

By Community Church

The Community Church Newsletter for November 28, 2021, is now available.

This week’s newsletter provides a schedule for Wednesday, December 1, Advent Evening Prayer Service. We will worship in the sanctuary, where we can stay socially distant. Masks are (still) required in the building.

Big news from the communications department at Holy Trinity: beginning next week, we will send the newsletter on THURSDAYS!!! The main reason for this is so that you get information closer to Sunday. We will also send Sunday’s bulletin on Thursdays, and Saturday’s worship email from Pastor Ingrid will come to an end.

The office is closed Thursday and Friday this week for Thanksgiving. Have a great holiday!

Community Church for November 21, 2021

By Community Church

The Community Church Newsletter for November 21, 2021, is now available.

In today’s newsletter, you can read about the expansive prayer liturgy that will be “premiered” at Holy Trinity in 2022. It’s an exciting project, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the writers and composer come up with.

There’s also some information about the worship service for Sunday (created by the Minneapolis Area Synod), an invitation to purchase poinsettias for Christmas, and the choir schedule for the next two weeks.

Pastor Angela will be on Good Morning America this Friday (Faith Friday). I don’t know what time that segment starts.

Advent starts next week. Which means Christmas is only 39 days away!!!!!!!!
