WELCOME TO TRINITY! All Saints celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ. As November heralds the dying of the landscape in many northern regions, the readings and liturgy call us to remember all who have died in Christ and whose baptism is complete. At the Lord's Table we gather with the faithful of every time and place, trusting that the promises of God will be fulfilled and that all tears will be wiped away in the new Jerusalem. You are always welcome here at Trinity. A special welcome to those who are visiting with us. Please take time to sign our book in the entry leaving both an address and a telephone number.
TODAY WE CELEBRATE HOLY COMMUNION. All who seek the Lord's Grace and forgiveness and are baptized, irrespective of age or denominational membership are welcome to the Lord's Table. Children who have not received communion instruction are invited to come forward for a blessing.
