Summer Job Opening: Concert Coordinator & Visitor Guide
Church of the Holy Trinity is an historically designated, busy downtown church with a long history of activism, radical hospitality, and support of the arts.
On Thursday, one of our long-term volunteers and parishioners, Coral Petzoldt, retired from People Presence, the ministry which keeps our doors open Mon-Fri 11-3. Administrator Margot Linken made two kinds of delicious cake, there were flowers, nibbles and conviviality. Thank you, Coral, for your years of dedication to this ministry!
We are all aware that we are in a process of discerning our future at Holy Trinity. The strategic planning committee has developed a process that will let us choose an operational and governance model that fits who we are going forward.
Strategic Planning next step
We’re having a community meeting on Saturday, April 28 from 10am to 1pm to present three possible staffing and governance models from the strategic review process. We hope that everyone who considers themselves a part of this community will take part if possible–whether part of Refugee Committee, Music Mondays, People Presence, Sunday worship, or any other part of our shared life.
We would also like to bring more hopes and dreams for what we do to light. This is an opportunity for you, on your own, or in collaboration with a few other people, to outline an idea for what we do or who we are. We are thinking of something bigger than one event, more like a project or direction for 3-5 years. If you wish to participate in this process of brainstorming, please share your “big idea” at this link (it’s a Google Form, so you’ll leave our site). You can submit more than one idea, don’t feel restricted. We will have a process to get a sense of which ideas have community traction. Prioritized ideas could be developed further. There is no commitment at this stage, just an opportunity to put forward what you are thinking. the deadline for submission in this process is April 20, 2018.
The process took longer than we expected with explorations of historic woods and discussions of how to paint them, but we expect them to be hung in the next few weeks. You can see some constructions photos below.
