E-Newsletter - Fourth Sunday in Easter

This week at First Trinity

Good Shepherd Sunday / Mothers Day / Fourth Sunday in Easter

Sisters and Brothers, Christ is Risen! Alleluia!

As we move into a beautiful weekend, a reminder that, in addition to it being Good Shepherd Sunday, this Sunday is also Mother's Day. We'll also be remembering some of the early Mothers of Christianity, Saints Perpetua and Felicity. A reminder of the radical and religious origins of this holiday can be found at this link, among other places!  We have flowers for all the mothers at worship AND Roxy and Cassie will be making pancakes for coffee hour after worship!

Sunday evening, we will carpool at 5:30 to South Loop Campus Ministry to deliver sandwiches to our homeless sisters and brothers! Feel free to join us!

Bishop's Visit
Mark your calendars! Bishop Miller will be preaching for worship 10:30AM, Pentecost Sunday, June 8. We will grill out and hang out after worship! If you are interested in being baptized or installed as a new member that day, please let me know this Sunday at worship, and we will prepare!

Liberation Theology - Learn About It!
(And live it!) Drew will be leading us, starting Tuesday, in a study on Liberation Theology for Armchair Theologians. Certainly this is a passion for Drew, and being in a class with him brings the topic to life in an exciting and engaging way. There will also be food! See you there!

God's Peace This Weekend!

Rev. Thomas R. Gaulke
