All Are Welcome!

This Week

The Time after Pentecost is a teaching time, a growing time, in the life of the church. Today’s texts celebrate God’s ability and intention to provide us with a new lease on life. To that end we gather today with the whole people of God to be instructed by the word and nourished in the blessed sacrament.

Readings: 1 Kings 17:17-24, Psalm 30, Galatians 1:11-24, Luke 7:11-17 

Tomorrow!!!  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.  Chances are we will be done before five, so if you are coming after 2 maybe check with Pastor Tom or Rene to see if we are still there.  Please join us. We Need All of the Help We Can Get!!!

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!

Bible Study!
Tuesdays, at 7 pm in the sanctuary.  We are reading Acts.

Tickets are here! If you signed up please see Rene to pay for and pick up your ticket. If you prepaid, just see Rene to get your ticket. Thanks all!
