Trinity Bazaar

Our Trinity Fall Bazaar scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd and our “Donut-Making Day” scheduled for Monday, October 11th, have both been canceled due to uncertain Covid health risks in the community. Our Fall Bazaar Committee spent several weeks trying to make the best decision for our church family and our community, and it was a very difficult decision to not move forward with our fall plans. We do have some other thoughts in mind for upcoming months, so we move forward with hopefulness that we can enjoy other smaller events with you one day. Blessings from the Trinity Fall Bazaar Committee.

  • Mild bar soap
