THIS WEEK AT TRINITY

Staying connected — All in-person worship services, meetings and other gatherings are canceled temporarily in the interest of the safety of our parishioners and the wider community.  Even though we can’t be together face to face at this time, we still have opportunities to stay connected and to be together in spirit as a congregation.  We will continue to stay in touch through e-mail communications and phone calls and by making our services available through on-line access whenever possible.

We will continue to live-stream our weekly services.  Morning Prayer at 10:30 a.m. Sundays and Noonday Prayer at 12:00 p.m. Wednesdays.  You may join these services on Facebook Live from our website.  In addition, you can come back and watch these services at any time on our Facebook page.

The Bible and Lunch — Every Tuesday CB Baker will be offering The Bible and Lunch, a weekly bible study streamed from noon to 12:45.  We will study the Gospel according to Matthew, the primary gospel used in Year A of our three-year cycle for Sunday worship.  We are in year A now.  Please join CB Tuesday at noon streamed on Trinity’s Facebook page.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Drive Through Blessing of the Animals at Grace Episcopal — This year’s Blessing of the Animals will take place Sunday, October 4th at 3 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church, 4101 S. Hazel Street in Pine Bluff.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the service/event will be a drive-through event.  Bring your pet or service animal to church!  In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi (whose feast is October 4), animal companions will receive a special blessing while you and your pet(s) remain in your vehicle.  Please ensure the pet is leashed or in a kennel.  All of God’s creatures are welcome, large or small!  This is a perfect event to invite your friends and neighbors to bring their animals as well.  Each animal will receive a certificate of blessing.  If possible, please bring a donation of pet food, toys, treats, or a monetary donation, that will be given to the Jefferson County Humane Society.
