SUMMERFEST - Sunday, August 14, 2022

Join in on a favorite Trinity tradition of Holy Eucharist at the Line property on Stuart/Brace Lake. Enjoy our 10:00am service together, to celebrate God’s outdoor beauty and music that fills the air. Please invite your friends and family.

The service will be followed by a potluck picnic. Bring your swimsuits for a dip in the lake! The property has a great spot to launch a kayak or float. Plan on staying awhile to play.

Please bring a dish to pass and your own table service. Grilled brats, hot dogs and fixin’s furnished. There will be lemonade, tea and water to drink!

Directions: From Trinity, take Mansion Street east to North Marshall Avenue, turn right and head south, across Michigan Avenue and past Ketchum Park, over the bridge and turn left on Hughes Street. Continue east past Marshall Academy to 18½ Mile Road. Turn right, go south around the lake, turn right on Orchard Lake Road, and look for the Trinity Summer Fest signs. Go to the end of the road and keep going down the private drive. There is a turn around with an open gate - go through the gate and look for parked cars!

Next Community Dinner

The next Community Dinner will be on Tuesday, August 9th, from 4:30 to 6:00pm. Community Dinners will continue every 2nd Tuesday of the month.
