Come journey through the life of Jacob, son of Isaac and Rebecca from the Old Testament. A five week study led by Milind Sojwal, husband of our Interim Rector.
Jacob was THE most popular name for newborn boys in the US in the year 2012. it is currently at #4. Deceiver, cheat, liar, manipulator, the biblical Jacob becomes a patriarch in the annals of the church. There is perhaps no other person recorded in scripture who evokes the paradox of God's call on unworthy people to sainthood as Jacob.
Place: Trinity Church Chapel
October 11: Jacob, the Deceiver
October 18: Jacob, the Dreamer
October 25: Jacob, the Wrestler
November 1: Jacob, the Limper

We always need help setting up the Pumpkin Patch. This is a very physical, hands on type of job. We are looking for people who can help move pallets, people who can help load and unload trucks and trailers full of tables, chairs, and decorations. And we always need people who can handle setting up the tents... those tend to be the biggest problem areas. Consider coming to help, or just come to the Patch Blessing at Noon!
