September 29 -- Signs of Life Conversation
After the 10 am service, we will gather in Trinity Hall for a conversation about ministry and vision here at Trinity.  In a recent sermon given in Boston, Lisa Kimball of Virginia Seminary talked about the church as being "called to interpret the Signs of Life to those trapped in the signs of our times."   This will be a launching point for us to talk about how Trinity is or could be a sign of life to those in our community -- both within our church community and in the larger community.  Our conversation will include both what we celebrate about our life at Trinity, and also what we long for or what seems to be missing.  All of this will serve to guide the next phase of our planning process.

October 6 - Bishop's Visit
Every three years, Trinity receives a visitation from our bishop, the Rt. Rev. Marc Andrus.  We look forward to welcoming Bishop Marc once again to Trinity, where he will preach and lead us in our worship.  In accordance with the bishop's preferences, there will be ONE service on October 6, to gather us in one community with our bishop.  

October 13 -- St. Francis' Day
We will observe St. Francis' Day this year on October 13.  This fun occasion reminds us of the way in which we are connected to the natural world around us, and also provides an opportunity to give thanks for the animals that are a part of our lives.  You are invited to bring your pets with you to church at 10 am (yes, it sounds crazy, but it really works!), and they will receive a special blessing.  Children are invited to bring a stuffed animal for a blessing, if they would like.

October 20 -- Planning Event
As a follow-up to our Signs of Life Conversation on September 29, you are invited to participate in a planning conversation in one of several areas that will be offered after church (lunch will be provided).   Meeting with staff and commissions in distinct areas of ministry, this day will focus on making some specific plans over the next three years based on what emerged from our September 29 conversation.

October 27 - Harvest Festival
This annual pre-Halloween event is a celebration of fall with food and fun for all ages.   Children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes, if they wish.

November 3 - All Saints' Sunday
All Saints is an occastion to remember those who have died, and to remember that we continue to be connected with those who have gone before us through the love and grace of God.  We will offer prayers for those in the congregation who have died since last All Saints Day, as well as those whom members of the congregation with to have remembered.   The choir will offer special music at the 10 am service.

November 10 - Reclaiming Eden Event with Guest Speaker
Matthew Sleeth will be our guest preacher at the 10 am service.  He is the author of Reforesting Faith: What Trees Teach Us About the Nature of God and His Love for Us.   Dr. Sleeth will be with us as part of our ongoing Reclaiming Eden theme as we seek to be better stewards of creation and do what we can to address the crisis of climate change in our world.

December 8 -  St. Nicholas and the Advent Festival
St. Nicholas will visit Trinity at both our services to tell us his story and how it connects to the celebration of Christmas.  We will gather in Trinity Hall following the 10 am service for our Advent Festival, a time of learning about and making Advent Wreaths, enjoying good food and fellowship, and singing some Christmas songs to get us in the holiday spirit.
