Church & Society
A big thank you to everyone who volunteered and attended the annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper! We had a great turnout of hungry pancake eaters and wonderful, cheerful volunteers! We also raised money to donate to Trinity’s mission projects and we collected items for Share’s food pantry.
During the month of March, Church & Society will be collecting toiletries for Martha’s Table: travel-sized shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and soaps. If you’re traveling, pick up those hotel toiletries! Please place all donations in the bins located in the Narthex stairwells or in the collection bins in the Fellowship Lobby.
Martha’s Table is a fantastic organization that provides help to homeless and underprivileged people in Washington, DC, by providing access to food, education, and opportunities. To find out more about Martha’s Table, check out their website.
Each month our church provides 1,500 bologna and cheese sandwiches to Martha’s Table to help feed the hungry. If you would like to volunteer to pick up bread or deliver the sandwiches, please contact Barb Long or visit http://bit.ly/MTVol.
A big box of 60 handmade cotton dresses was shipped to Uganda last month, thanks to the work of Crafts for a Cause. We’re happy to support the organization Dress a Girl Around the World, which sends handmade dresses for toddlers to teens in 81 countries.
In addition to the dresses, the crafts group has been making fleece hats and blankets for the Carpenter’s Shelter in Alexandria, along with the pillows, dolls, bears and blankets we make to provide comfort for patients at Fair Oaks Hospital.
You can be a part of this fun ministry by attending one of our work sessions this month: Mon., March 6, and Mon., March 20, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. You don’t have to be crafty to participate, everyone’s welcome!
For more information, please contact Molly Sprouse at
On Easter Sunday, April 16, Trinity’s Sanctuary will be decorated with lilies and tulips, given in honor or memory of loved ones.

All memorials/honors will be noted in the Easter Sunday bulletin. If you order flowers, you’re encouraged to take them home after the service. If you do not wish to take flowers home, you may make a donation only and have a dedication listed in the bulletin.
