This summer brings some GREAT opportunities. As you can see, it will take the entire village to make a giant impact for Jesus. Let’s do it together!
*June 4 Pentecost Sunday with a Global Food Court following worship in the narthex, celebrating the variety of foods from around the world, as well as the wide expanse of mission Christ has shown.
*June 4 is also Graduate Recognition Sunday. Trinity has several high school and college graduates this year. Good job everybody!
*June 11 Last day of Sunday School.
*June 18 First day of Summer Worship Schedule (9:30 am).
*June 26 – August 11 Summer Meals Program in Brickyard Park.
Trinity hands out brown bag lunches (made and administered by Share House) to kids as well as adults from noon until 1:00 pm in Brickyard Park. This is Monday through Friday through most of the summer. Volunteers are recruited by Jack Johnson, so if you’d like to check out this ministry, see Jack.
*July 8-14 High School Youth Mission Trip to Costa Rica (with Praying Pelicans Mission)
Our team will be teamed up with a church from Tulsa Oklahoma while in Costa Rica and will help Pastor Servano, Biblica Iglesia Rio Canas, with VBS for children, sports and games for teens, and with some wall repair for classrooms or other projects as needed on the church building. Please pray for our youth as they have this awesome opportunity to share the love of Jesus with Christians near and far.
*July 12 Revive Wednesday…Jesus, Jazz and Joe (and/or maybe a smoothie 🙂 6:45 pm
We only have one Revive Wednesday in July. Please come and bring a friend.
*July 23-28 Confirmation Camp at Camp Lutherwood for Middle School age youth.
This is a great week for our teens to get away, have fun together, work out group puzzles, as well as some consistent study together with Pastor and Youth Director. Soon-to-be 6th graders and outgoing 8th graders are all encouraged to sign up. Trinity covers half the cost of Camp.
*August 6 Joint Worship with WOKBC and Picnic.
This summer we have reserved a shelter at Frenchman’s Bar for our Church Picnic. The Washington Oregon Kachin Baptist Church is our partner congregation that worships in Stolee Hall Sundays at 1 pm. We seek to grow in fellowship with one another, and so look for opportunities to join in worship, fellowship, and mission. The annual church joint worship and picnic is a great time to grow in knowledge and love for one another. More details coming soon.
*August 7-11 Vacation Bible School!!! Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
We are using Group’s curriculum…Passport to Peru: Discovering God’s Good Gifts. All preschool kids to 6th graders are encouraged to sign up. Youth older than the 6th grade are now considered best helpers. Day One: God’s Comfort; Day Two: God’s Patience; Day Three: God’s Peace; Day Four: God’s Love; Day Five: God’s Joy. We are excited about this faith- igniting, cross-cultural VBS as our kids learn about Peruvian culture and maybe even get to have a live llama on the scene!
*August 9 Revive Wednesday…Jesus, Jazz, and Joe. 6:45 pm We only have one Revive Wednesday in August. (We will be going to full time again in September.) Join us for some great midweek refreshment of the spirit.
*August 26 Back-to-School Supplies and Block Party 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. Trinity continues to serve our partner schools Lincoln Elementary, Discovery Middle School and Hudson Bay High School with free backpacks and school supplies. Along with this give- away, we serve lunch and have games out in the parking lot, an eye exam, kids clothing closet and more. Stay tuned to when Nancy and Peggy bring out the supply lists (once the sales hit)
