  • TAKING A FRESH LOOK AT THE EPISCOPAL WAY OF LIFE!   Please join us for a book study exploring the Episcopal way of life.   What makes us different and distinctive?   What do we mean by the Via Media?    How is our changing culture asking us to change?   How do we understand mission,  authority,  scripture, sacraments?    What do we mean by liturgy?    We start Sunday, October 28th at 1:00 pm in the Cunningham Center at Trinity.  For more information contact Fr. Brian.  New to the church or a cradle Episcopalian–we need you!!!

  • TRINITY PLATTEVILLE FISH BOIL   On Friday, July 27th,  Trinity Platteville hosted its second annual fish boil as part of Platteville’s Hometown Festival Week.   Sixty-seven enjoyed an excellent, flavor-full meal of fish, onions, potatoes, roasted fresh corn on the cob, along with Door County cherry pie.    The fish featured Chef Andrew’s special ingredients and left us ready to do it all again.   It’s a shame:  We will have to wait for next year!!!!!    Special thanks for our chef and to all who helped out.
  • YOUTH GROUP CAMPING In July 2018 at Blackhawk Lake,  our youth group (and friends) enjoyed canoeing,  fishing,  a wonderful fajita dinner,  along with fireside music, camping songs and marsh-mellows around the campfire.   This was definitely a group project with lots of people pitching in to make our time together a great success.
  • INFORMAL EUCHARIST AT THE LAKE On Sunday, July 29th, our Youth Group led worship as we gathered in the picnic shelter for worship. Twenty-eight were in attendance.   Our youth led us in readings from Isaiah and in the Feeding of the Five Thousand from Matthew.  This was followed by a youth group skit on the Gospel.  A number of camp songs or Taize songs were sung, including Rise, Shine and Give God the Glory.    People from both churches brought wonderful food for our picnic as we  enjoyed a wonderful day together with mild weather.   Thanks to all who attended and who worked so hard to make this day such a success.
