Did you return your Time

and Talent form?

On Sunday, June 3, Time and Talent pledge packets were distributed to all in attendance at our joint discernment conversation. The next day, packets not taken that day were mailed to all remaining households. The deadline for returning forms was Sunday, June 17…but if you haven’t returned yours yet, go ahead and bring or mail it in. We will not be distributing the results to our ministry chairs until next Tuesday. After results are collated, those who have newly signed up for ministries they are not already performing will be contacted by a Bishop’s Committee member or ministry chair.  Your Bishop’s Committee

Looking ahead to July…it’s

time for a ballgame!

On Sunday, July 15, we invite parishioners from Trinity and Christ Churches to join us to see the New Hampshire Fisher Cats play the Portland Sea Dogs at Hadlock Field in Portland.  The carpool for the game will leave the Christ Church parking lot at 11:15 a.m. following a shortened, said, 10:30 a.m. service. The 8:45 service will be held as usual at Trinityi Church. Those who wish to drive on their own may do so. At 1:00 p.m., the actual game begins – and it will be “Portsmouth Day” with special recognition not only for our two churches on the video scoreboard, but a variety of groups coming in from the New Hampshire Seacoast that day. The cost of a ticket (great box seat behind third base) is $8.00 per person. You will also want to bring money to assist your carload with parking costs and, of course, to enjoy the concession stands at the park.

Progress continues on Ruth

Power Pastoral Care Center

This week, at least some of the furniture was delivered for our new Ruth Power Pastoral Care Center at Christ Church. We are still waiting for the tables, which were damaged in transit. A replacement set is on its way and should be here within the week. This week, a letter is going out to a fairly long list of area agencies announcing the availability of this new resource – and inviting them to take advantage of it. This comfortable space will be valuable for counseling, small group discussions, Lenten classes, and other uses, both within and beyond the congregation. It is our hope to dedicate it on Homecoming Sunday, which is tentatively set for Sept. 9. Once we have ascertained the availability of Ruth’s family to join us for that special occasion, we’ll firm up the date and get out invitations.
