Living Christ our Savior, you have delivered us from death and sin.
You have brought with the dawn a new beginning and an empty tomb;

Community Meals is awarded a Diocesan Ministry Development Grant
Trinity's Community Meals Program has been awarded a Diocesan Ministry Development Grant of $9600. The grant is designated for meals purchased from local restaurants, which support small, locally owned businesses. It will allow us to continue to serve weekly meals through the spring of 2022. We continue to need volunteers and funding to prepare meals in Trinity's kitchen for 2 weeks every month and on federal holidays when the school lunch program is closed. This award is a recognition of Trinity's reputation for faithful and effective mission ministry.

Good News Gardens:
Pray . . . Plant . . . Proclaim
Thank you to Maddie Stochaj for our new logo for this ministry.
Take a plant . . . share the produce . . . become part of a garden without walls. We will give small plants to grow in our homes along with containers and tips for growing vegetables and flowers.
Mary and Charlie Johnson are preparing seedlings that will be blessed on April 18th and that will be distributed on April 18th, 22nd, and 25th, along with plant care instructions and recyclable containers that have been collected by the youth group. Everyone is encouraged to take a plant to grow at home. We will have a "garden without walls" that draws us together, contributes to a healthy environment, and proclaims God's abundance.
