Red Door Rally Ministry Fair - August 25

Red Door Rally  -  August 25

 

On Sunday, August 25, all are invited to attend Red Door Rally, the annual ministry fair at Trinity Episcopal Church. Red Door Rally is an opportunity for newcomers and old-timers alike to learn more about all the different ministries and small groups that Trinity Church has to offer. If you have ever wondered how you can get more involved at Trinity Church or in the Covington community, join us for lunch in the parish hall immediately following the 10:00 AM worship service.

Representatives from each parish committee and small group will be on hand to discuss their ministry and invite your participation. From "Book & Beliefs" to recovery yoga to the Children's Home of Northern Kentucky, Trinity has a small group, ministry opportunity, or service project for you, no matter where you find yourself on the walk of faith.  

Trinity Episcopal Church is a growing and vibrant community of faith dedicated to ministry in northern Kentucky. Come discover your passion at the 2019 Red Door Rally. 

Love God. Love Your Neighbor. Change the World.
