All Are Welcome!

This Week

God hears every prayer—the prayer of the outsider as well as the prayer of the insider. The attentive nature of our God is evident as God comes to us again and again in the word and in the supper. “Ascribe to the Lord the honor due the holy name; bring offerings and enter the courts of the Lord.” Do it today.

Readings: 1 Kings 8:22-23, 41-43, Psalm 96:1-9, Galatians 1:1-12, Luke 7:1-10 

Kids Space Prep = Time to Clear Out the Basement
Saturday, June 4 at 11 AM - 5 PM
We're gonna make a space for the kids. But first we've gotta clean out the basement. Great way to relieve stress. Smashing, tossing, throwing out all of the things.   Please join us.

Hospitality Training 
What Would Jesus Say To Visitors? How can we best welcome people to worship on Sunday? How can we best send people off as they leave? How can we follow up with people who are new to this community between worship services?

Come get trained in best practices for welcoming new people to First Trinity and helping them feel part of this community.   Sunday, June 12 at 12 PM - 2 PM

Another Fundraiser, Coming Soon!
Of course, this one is everyone’s favorite!  Our Upcycle/Resale fair is part rummage sale, part craft fair, and all fun.  Tables for vendors will be $20.  See Rene or contact with questions or to sign up.   Saturday, July 16 - Details to come!

Toby’s Last Day :(
Join us as we say goodbye to Vicar Toby on Sunday, June 26. Worship will be followed by a potluck lunch and karaoke party. If you able to bring a dish to pass, please try to avoid corn, wheat, soy, eggs, yeast and meat.  Thanks!
