Your help and donations are vitally important to the Yard Sale’s success. Please see Brett or Courtney Bauz if you have any questions or need help with transporting any items to Trinity.
Have you visited the Coming Soon Cafe?! The main level of Trinity’s gathering space, where the parlor/library area was located has been reconfigured for a cafe setting. As our building task force meets in the coming months to imagine and dream how our facilities at Fifth & Chestnut Streets can better meet our ministry needs, the cafe will allow us to try a new setting and engage in conversation.
There is a sign up sheet for members and friends to supply donuts or treats on Sunday morning. The coffee pots and coffee as well as a large selection of tea are already there! Stop by and sign up on the clip board. Thank you to Brett and Courtney Bauz for spear-heading this project and setting the stage for conversation and imagining!

The number of Americans living in food-insecure households is now over 46 million, which means 1 in 8 people and 1 in 5 children struggles with hunger. Since 1990, “Souper Bowl of Caring” has been encouraging congregations across the nation to work together around the time of the Super Bowl to fight hunger and poverty in their local communities.
Support the annual “Souper Bowl of Caring” on Sunday, Feb. 3 by bringing your donations of soup and canned goods for the Pennridge FISH food pantry. Vote for your choice of winning team with your monetary donation. Please make checks payable to Trinity with “FISH” in the memo line.
Some of our crocheting hands (the baguettes!) delivered sleeping mats for the homeless to the Bucks County Opportunity Council on January 28. Each mat consists of 750-800 bags! These water-proof mats will keep blankets and clothing dry, and are light to store and carry. Thank you to our crocheting volunteers and to the baguettes to delivered the latest creations!
In the case of inclement weather, information about schedule changes and cancellations are shared on our website, voicemail, and social media. Email notifications will be shared when staff can access the office to reach our contacts via email@example.com.
If the Pennridge School District calls an early dismissal, offices will closed and evening rehearsals and events are cancelled.
If the PSD closes, evening events will most likely be held but based on parking/sidewalk conditions.
If the PSD operates on a 2-hour delay, offices will open on regular time unless conditions warrant otherwise.
Executive Council members and staff will help events coordinators decide if/when events need to be postponed or cancelled due to weather. When at all possible, decisions about morning events will be made by 8:00 pm the prior evening.
