Support Holy Trinity with gift cards for things you already buy ~ Our Vestry has approved an exciting new way for our parishioners to help keep our house of worship in excellent working order, allowing other funds to remain available for important programs such as Outreach and Music. The program is “Scrip” and it is just another way for parishioners to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards at face value, and our coordinator (Marilyn Kinzler) orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for Holy Trinity. It’s really that simple! When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. Great Lakes Scrip Center offers more than 700 of the country’s biggest retailers, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using Scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put our shopping dollars to work for Holy T! Look for our “Scrip” table at Coffee Connections to sign up.
BRING YOUR PET TO BE BLESSED! ~ Saturday October 20, 4.30 p.m. Annual Blessing of the Animals at Old Stone Riding Stables, 2920 Minton Road, Hamilton.
SERVING ON DIOCESAN COMMITTEES: Members of Holy Trinity are invited to be candidates for Diocesan positions at the upcoming Diocesan Convention. In particular we need candidates for the board of the Episcopal Community Services Foundation and the Trustees of the Church Foundation. Candidates are self-nominated. All they have to do is go to the Convention website (link below), fill out the requested information, and upload a headshot photo. Owing to the lack of candidates, nominations will be accepted until end October.

PUMPKIN CARVING ~ October 28. Plan to join us after church in the Parish Hall for some pumpkin carving for kids of all ages.
HAYRIDE ~ Saturday ~ November 10 ~ 3:30pm – 5:30pm Our annual hayride will be November 10 this year at Butterfield’s. We’ll pack a lot in over two hours: a corn maze, a hayride, feeding the cows, and a campfire with s’mores.
DAY TO VISIT THE ORGAN~ November 11. The Day to Visit the Organ will be an inter-generational event in which Phillip Rogers will take us on an after-church tour of the organ. We hope to be able, with appropriate care, to play a few notes on the organ as well. This tour is designed for the children but we invite everyone to join us in learning about our fantastic new instrument!
