In 2008 Trinity embarked on a Capital Campaign and Building Project to enlarge and modernize our facility. That year also marked the 150th anniversary of Trinity and our 40th year at 801 Henkel Road. The generous giving by the members of our church enabled us to make many changes at Trinity including the following:
The one area of improvement that has not been addressed to date is the Parish Hall and the Kitchen. The Parish Hall is a gathering place for so many organizations. It used on a daily basis as part of our ministry to the community.
It is a rare sight not to see our parking lot full of cars every evening. Think of the countless meals have been prepared in our kitchen for the past forty-six years!
On August 17, 2014, the Vestry approved a plan that was presented by the Building Committee to refurbish the Parish Hall and Kitchen as the final part of the building project that was started six years ago. GL Wilson has been our partner since the groundbreaking in 2009, and we are pleased to have them again serve as our general contractor for the conclusion of this project.
Construction work is tentatively scheduled to begin on September 15, 2014. We can look forward to a complete transformation of this much utilized space. A special feature that will be added is media equipment in the Parish Hall that will bring us up to date for group presentations.
The construction should be completed by the end of October. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience of having to close this area during construction, but it should be well worth the wait. —Jim Johnston, on behalf of the Trinity Building Committee
