Family Information Form
We are always in the process of updating our church records. Even if you are 100% sure that we have all of your information, we are asking EVERY parishioner to fill out a family information form. These forms are available at the church, or you can download one off the website here. Please return completed forms to the alms basin, the basket in the Narthex, or to the church office. Thank you!!!
Join us on Sunday, August 26 at 10:10am in the nave as Hank Houser and Amy Leathers of Houser/Walker Architects share the details of our new Master Plan. Older children, ages 6 - 12 years, can join us or they are welcome to congregate on the event lawn and playground with nursery workers. Doughnuts and water will be offered for the children only that day!
Rally Day is September 9th
Rally Day is Sunday, September 9! Join us for the kick-off of Sunday School. We'll wear our Holy Trinity t-shirts to church that day. Who doesn't love a good, casual Sunday at church? Children's Chapel will be offered at the 9am and 11am service. We can't wait to begin our Program year!
Holy Trinity Reads: A Long Obedience in the Same Direction
This Fall in Adult Christian formation, we're going to focus on Eugene Peterson's commentary on the Songs of Ascent (Psalms 120 through 134). If you've ever found the psalms mystifying or if you're looking for a good devotional approach to the Bible, this book could be a blessing to you. "Long Obedience" will be the main text for Adult Sunday School, but feel free to order a copy and dive in!
Morning Prayer services will continue to be held on Monday mornings at 10:30 a.m at Monarch Estates through the summer. Our next gathering will be Monday, August 13. If you are interested in becoming involved in this ministry, please contact Stephanie Ennis (firstname.lastname@example.org).
New Early Morning Rector led Bible Study
Join us in the parish hall on Wednesdays from 7:00am - 7:45am for a rector led Bible Study. Our first session will begin on August 15. Share a mid-week Jesus and a Gospel start to your Wednesday with a study of I and II Corinthians this Fall. You don't have to commit for the duration of the study, but rather, attend as your schedule permits.
Bible Study at 10:00am on Wednesdays will resume on August 15th as well!
Pro tip - these classes will cover the same material so come twice, or (more likely) feel free to move between the classes depending on your schedule.
Holy Trinity's College Ministries
Our College Bible Study and dinner will kick off on Monday, August 27 with a cookout and Compline! All college students are invited to come to Holy Trinity at 6 p.m. for a delicious, home-cooked meal, worship, and fellowship.
If you are in college/graduate school, but not attending AU, we want to stay in touch, so please fill out this form!
Students! Connect with the Rev. Gail Goldsmith at email@example.com if you have any questions or ideas to share! Looking forward to getting to know you!
Alabama Prison Birth Ministry
You are invited to help Holy Trinity support the Alabama Prison Birth Project, whose mission is to improve the health of newborns birthed by women in custody while strengthening maternal bonds and maternal self-efficacy. We will be preparing a nutritious lunch for 15 pregnant or postpartum women who attend a monthly education and support group at the Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women. The lunch includes both items that require minimal preparation (think fresh fruit and yogurt) and those that require some baking, so even those who are short on time can find a way to contribute. Food will need to be dropped off in the Holy Trinity kitchen on the first Monday of the month. Volunteers are still needed for a few months. Sign up at https://tinyurl.com/HoTPrisonBirthProject.
Education For Ministry (EFM)
EFM is looking for new members! We are all striving for a deeper relationship with God. EFM (Education For Ministry) is an excellent vehicle for achieving this goal. The group meets on Tuesdays from 10 am to 12:30 pm in the library from early September to early June. Leigh Nix will be at the 10:00 coffee and doughnut hour on Sundays and would love to talk with you if you are interested. Also, please feel free to call or email her if you have questions.

Kroger Card Enrollment Information
Holy Trinity is now registered with Kroger to receive donations through Kroger's Community Rewards program.
