IMPORTANT - Coffee Hour Hosts and Hostesses Needed
Please give the calendar on the refrigerator a check for open slots for Hospitality / Coffee Hour. We truly want to make sure that every week features the terrific hospitality that Holy Trinity has become known for – this is such a simple yet important part of ministry at our church, please make an effort to participate.
