Safety & Well-being of HT
Safety & Well-being Team
Last week, we had our first meeting of what we're calling the "Safety & Well-being" team, which is charged with both determining when and how to safely re-open our church building to parishioners, as well as to explore how we can continue to meaningfully worship and fellowship on Zoom or outside. (A big thank you to the team members!)
We decided that we are going to shoot for a date for inside worship of September 13th. Please note that this could end up being a moving goal. For example, if there is a surge in PA in early September, we would likely push that date back. More info to come!
Connection Opportunities For This Week
We continue to connect with each other via Zoom, including in these ways:
Sunday Morning Worship
As usual, we'll be meeting at 10:15 for worship. For those of you who were out and about for Father's Day, the sermon is here.
The worship bulletin will be on the homepage of our church website: holytrinitynarberth.org
Also, an early reminder that we will be having Holy Communion on July 5th worship. On that day, you will be encouraged to have some kind of bread product along with wine, grape juice, etc.
Breakfast Table Talk
We will be continuing to meet on Thursday mornings at 9:00 a.m. for catching up with one another and talking about where we have seen God at work lately.
Adult Bible Study
Adult Bible study will be meeting on Sunday morning at 9:00. This will most likely be our last session on the book of Acts. We'll be exploring the story of Paul's conversion from persecutor of Christians to protector. All are welcome!
For worship, Breakfast Table Talk, and Bible Study, we will be on the same Zoom time, same Zoom channel!

Giving Garden - we need your help!
Are you available on Wednesday mornings at 8:00 am? If so, please consider helping harvest our Giving Garden. Join as you are able, bringing your mask and tools and a little garden enthusiasm. No skill is required, but it is always appreciated if you have knowledge to share.
Thank you for your donations to Grace's Food Bank!
Thank you so much for all of your generosity and kindness. The need for canned proteins continues, so if you are able feel free to continue dropping off donations or sending in a check with "Grace Lutheran" written on the memo line. Holy Trinity continues to be a congregation that makes a difference!
It may be awhile yet before everyone is able to see it in person, but we wanted to share a few pictures of the patched-up vestibule at the Narberth Ave. entrance of the church, done by Bill Hillman!
If you are able to, please continue to be generous to Holy Trinity financially. You can contribute online at this website. Click on the button that says "online giving click here." OR you can continue to send in your donation with offering envelopes via the mail. Thank you in advance for your continued generosity!

The July, August, and September version of Christ in Our Home is available for pickup. The booklets are on the covered porch on the second floor outside the church/church office. If you would like one to be mailed to you, please contact the church office at 610-664-5503 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Connection & Helplines
Please remember, even if we are not physically in the church office, we are still checking voicemails and emails daily. If you need anything, just leave us a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. We know these are trying times and would like you all to know we are here. If you or your family are having financial troubles, please let us know; we may be able to provide a small amount of support. If you or someone you know may need help beyond what the church is capable of, below are a number of services available. Stay well!
