Trinity Times for February 2019

February may be the shortest month, and it may not have any major Feasts on the liturgical calendar, but at Trinity it is one of the busier ones. Have a look at the Trinity Times for February 2019 to see what is happening this month — and what will be happening in months to come!

Trinity Times for February
Here’s our new Vestry!

Photos from January 20

In view of the weather, it’s a little bit of a surprise that we actually have photos from January 20 to offer here. However, Trinity Lime Rock has a pretty stalwart congregation!

The weather was absolutely miserable, and the roads were somewhere between poor and terrible due to the snow and ice. As a result, the 10:30 AM service opened with a congregation that was, uummm, sparse. However, latecomers drifted in and things got a lot better as the day went on.

And we held our Annual Meeting and pot luck lunch as scheduled.

Annual Report for 2018

We are very happy to bring you Trinity Lime Rock’s Annual Report for 2018!

For several years now, we have been publishing this document online in advance of the Annual Meeting. This serves more than one purpose. First, it saves a whole bunch of trees! We are not idle at Trinity, and trying to summarize everything we have done for a year in a single document makes for a thick document. (Along with the trees, think of how much it saves on copier expense!). Secondly, and most importantly, it lets everyone in the parish prepare for the annual meeting ahead of time. You can read the report from cover to cover at your leisure and not have to speed read during the early parts of the annual meeting. You can bring it with you to the meeting on your phone or tablet and refer to it as you wish.

The financials will be distributed (on paper) at the Annual Meeting, so they are not included in this report.

To download the Annual Report for 2018 now, simply click the download button.

Thanks to Alexis Dorf, who pulls the whole thing together!!

Photos from December 1 and 2

Here are some photos from December 1 and 2 at Trinity Lime Rock.

That Saturday (December 1) we had our annual Christmas Bazaar, with refreshments, wreath sale, lots of neat things for holiday gifts, a chili dinner, and, of course, the community Christmas tree lighting, with carols and hot chocolate.

Photo credits for this album to Alexis and Eleanore.  Thanks so much to both of you for the great coverage of this annual event.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!

Here are some more photos of the Bazaar and Tree Lighting, and also a few from Sunday, December 2, which was also the first Sunday in Advent.

Photo credits for this album to Heidi, Alexis, and, for the first time, Georgia!   Thanks to all three of you for your contributions!!

Community Thanksgiving

When Christ Church in Canaan closed, many of the community activities of that parish came along with a number of their former members to Trinity.  One such was participation in and  support of the Community Thanksgiving dinner.  That service to the community of North Canaan (and the wider area as well)  that the North Canaan Congregational Church traditionally served to the community at Pilgrim House became a Trinity activity as well.

Trinity folks — and lots of people from the community — showed up the day before Thanksgiving to peel, chop, and otherwise prepare, and then again on Thanksgiving to serve (and eat).  Here are a few photos, courtesy of Pastor Heidi and Pastor Savage Frieze of the North Canaan Congregational Church! (click the individual photos to see larger versions — you can page through the gallery, too)

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
