Meet Martha Roskelly, mother of 4 beautiful children who are all in school now. She missed babies in her life, so she joined us in our Nursery Children's Program!
In collaboration with Volunteer Starkville, Trinity hosted Starkville's Night of Unity on the eve of MLK. Community members joined in fellowship, food, and discussion groups for a beautiful evening.
Our biannual blood drive at Trinity on January 17th 2016 resulted in 10 pints of blood being donated by people in our Trinity congregation. This will help 30 people who are in need.
This year we wanted to take this program a little deeper. There are no respite programs for parents of children with special needs available in Starkville. Church can be particularly difficult for families who are worried about a congregation accepting the different behavior of their children. Many parents of children with special needs find church to be another day of work, sitting with them in educational programs, walking with them during the service, or keeping up with them during coffee hour. At Trinity, we wanted to do two things: 1. Provide appropriate worship and educational experiences for ALL children, and 2. Give parents of children with special needs a much-needed break on Sunday mornings to refuel themselves.
We had a packed house for our annual Thanksgiving Feast at Trinity. Tom Ritter, our Turkey Chef, outdid himself again. Thanks to all who planned and helped with the organizing and beautiful decorations. The kids LOVED the Thanksgiving jokes on the tables. What a season to be GRATEFUL!
We wanted to give our youth the opportunity to fellowship with young people from other worship backgrounds. The Bridge Youth Group was formed between St. Joe's Catholic Church, Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, and Trinity Presbyterian this fall. Every week the youth group rotates where they meet. And we have had some serious fun learning to love each other and grow in Christ's love.
