John writes: “CONGRATULATIONS TRINITY!! Thanks to your wonderful support (including braving the frigid temperatures) we were able to raise over $1,000.00 via the Annual Meeting Silent Auction.  This money will benefit not only Trinity’s general fund, but also ongoing marketing efforts and our growing youth program.  What a tremendous result.  Thanks so very much to the local businesses and Trinity parishioners whose generous donations made this event possible, and to each of you for responding with such joyful abundance.”

THIS WEEK WE REMEMBER IN PRAYER:

We remember all who work for peace around the world, and especially this day we pray for our nation and other international partners discerning war and peace and wisdom in this time of terror and violence. Remembering friends and family members related to this community, we pray for Specialist Hannah Stout, Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Matt Schumann, Captain Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
For peace in a war torn world, especially in Jerusalem, Palestine and Israel. In this season of Lent we pray for St. Elias Greek Orthodox Church, Damascus, Syria. We continue to ask God for a deeper compassion and greater courage to offer help to refugees and migrants and all in need.
We renew our commitments to serve the neediest and most easily forgotten in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time – Jack & Mary Lake, Lynn Giljahn, Stuart Phillips, August Giles, Judy McKissick,  Henry Webster, Lucia Benaquisto , Pauline Austin, Jonie Johnson, Dick Oman, Dave Mozano,  Jan Heston, Frances Bennekamper, Gayle Nash,  Sharon Whaley, Hal Duryee, David and those in prison and others whom we name silently or aloud.
Birthdays: Tara Sapp, Andrew Pucker, Austin  Elton, Bill Mains, Jerry Sellman, Meghan Kay, Uwe Trittmann, Jay Blakeslee
Anniversary:  Sarah-Grace Heller & Kyle Baith
We remember Ava Guglielmi who died last week and who was buried in Findley, Ohio yesterday – and Ann Peters who died last week in St. Paul, Minnesota
