New Editions of Trinity’s Directory!
As many of you know, your Breeze account acts as a digital, searchable, mobile! directory for you to access contact information for Trinity folks. In addition, we’ll be creating a printed version with photos over the next few months. In preparation for the publishing of the new directory, please contact the office with your current and preferred Phone Number, Email, and Street Address. And send along a family or individual photo to include. Alternately, you can update your very own account information and photo yourself by logging in to your Breeze account.

Trinity is now officially recruiting volunteers for our Kids Hope mentoring program at Harrison Park School! Yay!

Harrison Park is so happy to have us and will do whatever they can to work around our volunteers’ schedules. (Preferred times for tutoring are mid-day/lunchtime) Sign up here, in-person on the sign up sheet, or contact Amanda directly with questions or to volunteer.  Thanks!
