Interim pastor Rev. Donald Hayn is available in the church office Monday and Thursday mornings. He will do at home and hospital visitations during afternoon hours. Church members are encouraged to call the church office to make known your pastoral request, such as baptism, wedding, visitation. He will preside at most weekly Sunday worship services. He is excused on the third Sunday of each month. The interim pastor is serving Trinity during this time of transition while a spiritual leader is being sought to serve full time.
Looking ahead to first Saturday 5 p.m. worship with Holy Communion, the format will change to Intinction. This is the act of immersing the consecrated wafer in grape juice in order to enable the communicant to receive the two elements as one. It is the practice at Trinity to substitute grape juice for wine when intinction is used.
