Garden Plot Against Hunger

Are you interested in being part of a gardening team to create a Trinity Garden Plot Against Hunger? The food harvested from the garden will go to AFAC. We are looking for interested planners (researching how other churches manage their plots), designers of the plot, construction of the raised beds, and lastly gardeners to plant and maintain the plot. If any of these sound interesting to you, please contact Priscilla Hoffman-Stowe to get on the Plot Team. With your help, we can make it happen but we need a good number of committed people!

 

Take Action for Affordable Housing and Mental Health Care in Virginia

Trinity recently joined as a full member of VOICE, an interfaith network aimed at advocating and working to solve social and racial injustices. We hope you will take a moment to learn and then take action as an individual on the following two key issues that VOICE leaders have spent the last four months meeting with experts and politicians to determine best solutions and what would be possible politically. VOICE is asking for us to send emails to key figures to fully fund VOICE’s two priorities in the upcoming August special session:

  • Create 10 Crisis Receiving Centers — so people with mental illness and addiction can get treatment, not jail time; click here for the Crisis Receiving Centers FAQs
  • Build 6,000+ units of affordable housing– to address Virginia’s affordable housing crisis. Affordable Housing FAQs

Please go to www.trinityarlington.org/announcements to be able to use the clickable links.  Please click here to easily send an email to Gov. Northam and key General Assembly leaders.

What about at home worship now that we are inside?

Please bear with us as we adjust to a new sound system in the sanctuary and indoor services. In July the staff will take a break from recorded video worship and offer podcast of the service instead. The past Children’s moments and Services are available online on our Youtube channel (available on Youtube or our website under “Worship). We anticipate offering a recorded worship option again.

 

Racial Justice Spot: Ally Training

Ally Training is being offered through the Presbytery’s partnership with Service Never Sleeps. Allyship workshops will provide helpful definitions, invitations to self-mirroring, and active ally education involving the CLAIM acronym: Care, Learn, Act, Influence, and Maintain. The workshops teach individuals about the causes of social injustice, how to be effective allies for marginalized communities, and how to actively influence and educate others. Several Trinity members, such as Dan Campbell, Donna Parry, and Pastor Judith (as well as others)  have participated in past classes and have really appreciated the focused events.

When: Wednesday, September 15  from 6pm – 9pm AND Thursday, September 16 from 6pm -9pm (two part training) your registration confirms you will attend both sessions.

Where: Virtual on Zoom

Who: Members of National Capital Presbytery congregations and communities and friends of our congregations (this training is NOT open to CLERGY) Click here to register. NOTE: In order to provide this training to as many people at possible, there is a limit of 4 participants per church for the upcoming sessions. Please email the church office so we can track how many people from Trinity are attending.

 

Church App

If you installed the app and the worship bulletin is from last week, please go to the three left hand bars and click on it. Then you see a circle with an arrow, click on it and you can refresh so it is updated.

The church has a new app which will have the order of worship and lyrics for worship, announcements, sign ups, and give. Lastly, we can send out notifications, such as a change to worship time due to weather. We will not have the prayer concerns on the app as it is publicly available and we want to respect internet privacy. How to access it? Go to your App Store: · Search “Sharefaith App” · Install · Type in “Trinity Presbyterian Arlington” for your church. · Click Default for the Icon. Enjoy.
