Mark the date for Trinity Episcopal Church's Homecoming Service on September 23rd at 10am 

  

On behalf of Trinity Episcopal Church, I would like to invite you and your family to your first Homecoming Service!

 

I am Liberty Wallen, a 14 year old that attends Trinity and presented the Homecoming idea to the Vestry.  You're probably asking "What is a Homecoming Service"?  The Homecoming Service is time for people to come back home, well back to their church home that is.  It is also a time to reflect on our past and look towards our future as a church family.  It would be wonderful if you would decide to join us.

          - Liberty Wallen

 

Please join us after the service for fellowship and food.  Please RSVP to the church at 913 367-3171 or by September 18th.
