A Community Chair-ity Project

As part of Trinity's 200th Anniversary Celebration, church and community members have been decorating chairs.  The chair project theme of "Welcome there is a place for you" ties the project to our church statement of "Trinity is an Open & Affirming, Global Mission church where everyone is welcome!."
There is a total of 35 chairs located at 27 different locations in the Wooster area.  Click on the brochure link below to print out a copy.  
The chairs will be on display until the week of July 8.  During that point they will be moved from their current locations and all brought to our 200th Celebration at Christmas Run Park on Sunday July 14, 2019 starting with worship at 10:30 am.  After worship we will have a picnic and an auction for the chairs.  All proceeds will benefit the CHAIR-ity of Habitat for Humanity in Wayne County.  The public is welcome to the 200th Celebration Worship and picnic on July 14.
