BEST WISHES FOR EVAN! Evan Ayars left Trinity last month to become tenor section leader at the church he grew up in: Lewinsville Presbyterian Church; he will continue to be director of choirs at Chantilly High School. Evan was a dynamic director of our Children’s Choir and a first-rate song leader at our 8:30 a.m. services for eight years; he played expertly in both of our handbell ensembles and was a popular soloist in our annual Choir concerts. We will miss him!


WELCOME TO JOEY! Joey Wilson is Trinity’s new tenor section leader; he will also play bells with the Memorial Ringers. Joey has vocal degrees from Montclair State and Catholic University of America; he has done additional opera studies at Pepperdine University and in Vienna, Austria. He has performed leading roles in professional productions of Berlioz’s Romeo and Juliet, Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance, Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci, Mozart’s Magic Flute, Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld and Sondheim’s A Little Night Music. Please give him a warm Trinity welcome!

You have a name. I have a name. Does God have a name?

Children’s Choir will kick off the new year on September 10, and you should be a part of the exciting things that are happening! All children 4 years old through 6th grade are invited to join us on Wednesday nights from 6-7 p.m. We will share in a time of food and fellowship and then discover God through music. A small group like Children’s Choir is an excellent way for children and parents to get plugged into the heart of the church and form lasting friendships.

Have you ever noticed that God has a bunch of different names? God is called Light of the World, Alpha and Omega, I AM, the Lamb, Creator, Immanuel, Prince of Peace , and so many more! (If you find me in church on Sunday and tell me another name for God, I may have a surprise for you!) How do we know what God’s name actually is? Are we allowed to call God all of these names? This semester we will explore the Bible to discover these different names of God and find out what they tell us about who God is. Our time together will certainly be filled with joy and blessings. I hope to see you there!
