March 31 – A message from Fr. Tony… In accordance with the national guidelines and the continuing spread of the coronavirus, Bishop Howard has suspended all in-house services through the end of April.

This means we must be creative in keeping Holy Week and Easter. This Sunday is Palm Sunday. Fr. Les Singleton, Figg, Kristi and I will conduct a virtual service via Facebook Live this Sunday at 10 am. The bulletin and hymns will be emailed to you tomorrow so you can participate, and you will need a small piece of bread from your pantry for Communion. 
 
You can watch the service LIVE on Facebook at 10. Afterward we will post it to Trinity’s Facebook page (search for Trinity Episcopal Church Melrose Florida) for anyone who was not able to catch us live.
 
Holy Week services are still in the planning process. Linda will notify you as soon as we finalize the schedule.

March 31 – A message from George, our Sr. Warden: Many of you have been taking the Bible in 90 days course. I have as well. This past Sunday, I finished reading 2 Corinthians and have started Galatians. For me, as your treasurer, it is no coincidence that during these times of difficulty, no services, no gatherings, and offerings being down, I reached 2 Corinthians, Chapter 9, verse 6:

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so in all things at all times, having all you need, you will abound in every good work.”

This really resonated with me. I do not know how many of you have been able to mail in your offerings, but I thought I would use this opportunity to remind you not to forget that expenses continue and also that based on our 2020 budget, we need approximately $2,900.00 a week in offerings in order to be able to meet expenses. This does not include other income, such as rent, ECW contributions, bazaar, and so forth. The service of March 15, 2020 generated only $2,175.00. Attendance was already understandably lower than normal. I don’t know how much was received for the service of the 23rd since the mail was not collected until the 30th, however, a deposit totaling $3,646.35 was made today. Thank you to all those who despite our current situation remembered Trinity! For the last three weeks of March, we needed approximately $8,700.00 to stay within budget, so we are about $2,800.00 short for March.

Please don’t forget Paul’s words quoted above, and please don’t forget that Trinity still incurs expenses during this difficult time, even though some do not continue while we are closed. Please be as generous as you can.

Trinity’s mailing address is:  PO Box 361 Melrose, FL 32666

Within the next few weeks, Ameris Bank will launch Zelle, a program that will allow you to send money electronically directly into Trinity’s operating account. It’s as simple as downloading an app. If your bank supports Zelle, and most do, the idea would be to give you the option to send your offering electronically. I will keep you updated regarding this option as well.

If you have any questions, please call me or call Father Tony. My cell phone number is 727-744-2146. Also, if you don’t have a stamp, if you cannot get to the post office or to your mail box, I’ll be glad to make a house call. Call me if you would like me to pick up your offering. Social distancing would require that you leave your offering in an envelope at your front door. I’ll let you know when I’ve picked it up.

Thank you and I miss you all. Stay safe!
Peace,
George

March 24 – A message from Fr. Tony…You are an awesome, caring family! Given the option of continuing limited activities this week, most of you chose to stay home and avoid any chance of catching the virus.   This week, and especially next, seem to me to be the most critical times to stay isolated.  So as of today, all church-related  activities at Trinity are canceled until further notice. This includes Morning Prayer, the B90 Bible study, and Sisters Circle.   AA and Balance Class have elected to continue and will sanitize after their meetings. 

 I will be in and out of the office, Linda is working from Home, and Figg will be in only as needed.  The office is effectively closed, however I am available.  Please call or text me for any reason. To talk, to bring you food, to answer questions, what ever your need. 352-727-0354

Please, please, continue to pray for Trinity family, pray for your staff and vestry, that we may all come through this in good health and glorious spirit. God’s blessings! Amen.

March 22 – A message from Fr. Tony…God’s blessings and peace. Trust you are safe and well. Though we can’t be together for worship at Trinity this morning, still, we can pray together. Please join me in reading Morning Prayer together at 10 a.m., or anytime at your convenience today.

And if you let me know that you participated in the service (what ever time you were able), you will be counted in the Service Book as attending church today. Just reply to this email or text me. And yes, we have the Bishop’s permission. Extraordinary times call for creative measures.

March 21 – A message from Fr. Tony…A devotion for us this evening.

 

God’s peace,
Tony+
 

March 19 – A message from Fr. Tony…Let’s take five minutes each evening and pray together. Say, 7:00pm, around the kitchen table, or in the easy chair, just a few moments spent together reflecting on our blessings, praying for those affected; praying for Trinity, our nation and the world. Pray for the doctors and nurses and those brave souls who are keeping the grocery stores open.

God our Father
we come to You in our need
to ask Your protection against the 2019 N-coronavirus
that has claimed lives
and has affected many.

We pray for Your grace
for the people tasked with studying the nature and cause
of this virus and its disease
and of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of medical experts
that they may minister to the sick
with competence and compassion
and of those governments and private agencies
that must find cure and solution to this epidemic.

We pray for those afflicted.
May they be restored to health soon.

Grant us the grace
to work for the good of all
and to help those in need.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son
who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God forever and ever.  Amen.

Monday, March 16 – Updates:

  • For those who might be wondering, out of a regard for caution, all of the remaining Soup Suppers have been cancelled.  As of now however, the Seder Dinner at Immanuel on the Wednesday of Holy Week, April 8th is still scheduled.
  • All of the remaining Community Lenten luncheons at area churches have also been cancelled.
  • The B90 class will meet tomorrow afternoon at 1:30.
  • Because LAM is closed until April the Front Door Ministry which is in the office is beginning to bag up more food than usual for people who may come to Trinity for food.  Anything you might be able to donate would be a great blessing.  You can drop any donations off at the office.
  • Our Thrift Shop will be closed until April and we are asking that no donations are brought until that time so we don’t have an overflow of items.
  • We may have some shortened office hours but if you should need Fr. Tony when the office is closed, please use his cell phone number  352 727 0354.
  • As things evolve and change, we will try to keep you informed and up to date as quickly as possible.
  • In the meantime you will each be in our prayers and please keep one another in yours.

 Philippians 4  Therefore, my brothers, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends! … And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

SOUP SUPPERS AND LENTEN LUNCHEONS:
Out of a regard for caution, all of the remaining Soup Suppers and Community Lenten Luncheons have been cancelled

Wednesday, March 11
Trinity hosted the Community Lenten Luncheon.  

This year we will share our Lenten Soup Suppers with St. Mark’s in Starke and with Immanuel Anglican Church in Keystone. The subject of the dinners will be “Entering the Passion of Jesus, A Beginners Guide to Holy Week” by Amy-Jill Divine. There will be a short 10-15 minute video with some explanation and discussion.

As always the evening will also include music and a Eucharist Service as well as a soup dinner with many delicious soup choices, fruit, bread and drinks. Below is the schedule of dinners concluding with a Seder dinner on the Wednesday of Holy Week at Immanuel.

Trinity hosts the soup suppers on MARCH 18 and APRIL 1. If you are able to make soup or bread, bring fruit or help with set up and/or clean up for the dinners at Trinity, please get in touch with Cinnie Brown.

     

Sunday – February 2
Each year Trinity holds an annual meeting so everyone can hear about the budget for the coming year, learn the news from our Diocesan Convention, catch up on any church news, and elect new members of the Vestry and a Convention Delegate for next year. Everyone will also receive a copy of the Annual Report which gives details about all of the ministries and their activities for the past year. Please plan to attend this important

2019 Events

These on-going programs will resume when we gather again:

The Home Fellowship meeting at Fr. Tony’s and Ann’s starts at 6:00pm every Monday evening.  We are currently studying Ephesians. 

 

Sunday School – JC and the Gospel!
JC and the Gospel – Sundays at 9:30am in the Forum Room.  Everyone is welcome!  It’s a fun and informative class and discussion.

 

Tuesday Afternoon Study is held at 1:30 in the Wicker Room.  Everyone is welcome!  Most lessons will be independent and not depend on having been here the prior week, so if you need to miss one or two, that won’t mean you have to miss the others.

 

Betty’s on Tuesdays at noon. There is often a discussion of the coming week’s lessons and sometimes just a discussion, but it’s always fun and interesting!

Everyone is welcome to the service which brings much
