This Sunday

Join us Pentecost Sunday! Celebrate the church of all languages, the arrival of the Spirit, and the installation (officially, even if for a very long time, in our hearts) of Kevin and Kate,, Sonia's granddaughter, Jayla, is getting baptized!

As if that's not enough:

We will also have a couple of sweet guests from Germany, friends of Klaus-Peter Adam!

And... we will be saying farewell to Joe and Kacie.

Facebook Oops!
For a really long time we've gotten away with having a Facebook Profile (for people) rather than a page (for organizations).  Facebook caught us!  So we are in the process of moving all of our old profile stuff to our page.  Follow us!  And tell your friends!

First Trinity Field Trip to the Cemetery! Meet at First Trinity to join us on a trip to Concordia Cemetery for Memorial Day worship and a tour led by our own Richard.  Carpools will be leaving at 10:15 am.

Next Sunday
Trinity Sunday is just over a week away, and it's going to be a great day.

9:15 - The Lutheran Magazine Study Group - Bring your copy of The Lutheran, or use one of ours. Read and discuss articles over coffee and pastry.

10:30 - Worship with guest preacher Connie Leininger

After worship - Potluck Cookout and Celebration of May Birthdays.

The Art Bowl

On Thursday, June 11, hundreds of hand-made, ceramic bowls, created and donated by local artist and children, will be on offer to the public for a $20 (or 2/$30) contribution. After selecting a bowl people are invited to share a meal of soups and chili made by local chefs and foodies. There will even be vegetarian and vegan options! 100 percent of all contributions will go directly to the First Trinity Kid’s Activity Fund.

Order tickets ahead of time for a 10% discount.

Contact the church office at welcome@firsttrintiychicago if you would like to purchase raffle tickets ahead of the event or if you are interested in donating soup or bread for the event.

This summer, the kids are raising money to attend Lutherdale Bible Camp, in Wisconsin.

I have the tickets! If you have paid for a ticket you may pick it up from Rene in the office at any time. If you have not paid for a ticket, but signed up, you may pay for it and pick it up at any time. If you have not signed up, or paid for a ticket but want one, talk to Rene in the office... there may be a couple of extras. Thanks!
