The 150th Anniversary Celebration Continues

The 150th Anniversary of Trinity will began with the Unity Service of Celebration on Sunday, October 14th 2018. We chose this date because it is close to our actual groundbreaking for the original church on Franklin Street which took place in October, 1868.

There are some fantastic pictures, both past and present, posted pictures on the bulletin board in the Narthex.  A timeline is beginning to form in Fellowship Hall. Watch it grow through the year. We will also have wonderful scrapbooks of our early church days out for you to look through during the brunch. Please take time to look at these artifacts. We were blessed by the diligent research of Janet Dayhoff and Dottie Cochrane. Their tireless work, attention to detail, and the formation of the Heritage Room provide us with a wealth of information from our past.

February

As part of our celebrations for the 150th anniversary, we will have a unity service on Sunday, February 24th at 11am in the sanctuary, paying special attention to the “Te Deum” window (Te Deum from its incipit, Te deum laudamus “Thee, O God, we praise”) and incorporating a liturgical setting from the past. Stay after the service for the February Soup and Sandwich sale!  

 

Jottings from Yesterday…

Did You Know?  Bulletins were not used until 1941. Dr. Ard began them during his first year at Trinity. Before that, the hymn boards would display the hymns sung each Sunday. The hymnals were handed out by the ushers and collected at the end of the service. They placed them on a table in the Narthex.

The anniversary committee meets the second Tuesday of the month in Memorial Hall at 7 PM. Come join us! The next meeting is Tuesday, November 13th.
