Hello to members and friends of Trinity,
I pray you are doing well in the Lord and staying safe as we continue to follow the CDC guidelines that have been issued regarding the Covid-19 virus.
Lent is usually a busy time for the office; Midweek services, Palm Sunday, Holy Week, Easter bulletins, flower dedications, etc.; but this year, instead of focusing on the busyness of “office stuff”, it’s given me time to reflect on the season.
I reflect on the quietness in the office. The work and the deadlines still exist, and although important, YOU are important. Our relationships, friendships, volunteers, leaders. I miss you and appreciate your commitment in serving Christ.
In the quietness of the office, I’m getting to know Pastor Tim and enjoy Worship in the Home along with you.
In the quietness of the office, I realize the importance of life-giving moments. Blessings that God reveals to us in the quest times. Serving you in the office even when you’re not there, getting to know a new Pastor, helping family. (And also remembering these quiet moments when they are long gone!)
In the quietness of today I thank you, Trinity, for giving me the opportunity to serve God through your ministry. Stay well, be safe. See you soon.
In Christ’s love and friendship, Phyllis D’Alessio, Office Admin
On a personal note: My family and I continue to care for our 94 year old mother. I’m grateful to my two brothers and my sister-in-law for their devotion to her. My daughter Ann Marie is a foster parent to 3 children (ages 9, 3 and 1 ½). Challenging at times with home schooling for the 9 year old and helping with daycare for the two little ones.

Thank you so much for sending Worship in the Home week 3! I am so happy that the church has found a pastor and I am looking forward to meeting him in person. This is a terrific way to introduce potential visitors to the church and the pastor. I will share it with others. I hope you are all safe and well during this time. With kindest regards, Marla
