Featured Photos: Sunday's Parish Picnic & Kickoff

This year's Parish PIcnic was the biggest one ever with a record breaking crowd of almost 300 people! We loved seeing all of you. Thank you for celebrating with us, and thank you to everyone who helped make the event a huge success.

Missing  Touch-a-Fire Truck

Hi Holy Trinity Children,
We were all looking forward to touching a Greensboro Fire Truck at the Parish Picnic and talking with local firefighters about their amazing work. Unfortunately, they were not able to join us, probably because they were needed to assist our neighbors. We look forward to having them join us for an event in the future.

Book Group Registration

The Church Cracked Open: Disruption, Decline, and New Hope for Beloved Community
by Stephanie Spellers

Led by Dr. Linda Brown, this group will explore this new work which, “explores the American story and the Episcopal story in order to find out how communities steeped in racism, establishment, and privilege can at last fall in love with Jesus, walk humbly with the most vulnerable and embody beloved community in our own broken but beautiful way.” (Church Publishing)
Classes take place Thursdays in October, 10 a.m.—12 p.m., in Broome Hall. Please register using this link.
Space is limited.

Refugee Ministry at Holy Trinity

Holy Trinity has a long history of welcoming and supporting newcomers to Greensboro and now there is a great need for such help. Church World Services is preparing for a number new arrivals from Afghanistan to our wonderful city of Greensboro. As they arrive, these Afghan families will need community support. One way to offer that is through community sponsorship. Sponsors are groups of 8-10 people who provide both membership and financial assistance to help these newcomers rebuild their lives.
Sponsors commit to supporting an Afghan family for at least 4 months through:
         Securing and furnishing housing
         Providing basic needs assistance and financial support
         Supporting self-sufficiency goals, like practicing English and finding a job.
 
On average, groups will work with their Afghan partners 5-15 hours a week. Church World Services will provide a 2 hour training, a personalized action plan, and regular check-ins to support sponsors along the way.
 
If you are interested in joining Holy Trinity’s community sponsorship team, please contact Rev. Sarah Carver at sarah@holy-trinity.com.
