The 150th Anniversary Celebration Continues

“Celebrating our Past and Embracing our Future”

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, osted 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.


Each month we will celebrate the anniversary with a special focus one Sunday a month. In November, we will focus on Harvest Home which has been a long-standing tradition at Trinity. This will occur on Sunday, November 18th. This will also be the day we provide Thanksgiving boxes to our Micah’s families and Food Bank families. What a way to celebrate Harvest Sunday! It will also be our annual Congregational Meeting and Meal. Why not bring a dish to share from one of our cookbooks? In November we will ask all to look through past cook books and bring a dish to share (please share the name of who put the recipe in the cookbook) to share as part of the congregational dinner.  Don’t have a cookbook?  Use one of the recipes that have been in our newsletter the past 5 or 6 months (Click for Newsletters).  Each recipe shared is from one of the cookbooks.

We have something special planned for Christmas, so watch for more information in the Messenger and miniMessenger as we “Celebrate Our Past and Embrace Our Future.”


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.
