Pentecost Offering

Today we are collecting for one of the four yearly PC(USA) offerings, the Pentecost offering. A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children. 40% of the Pentecost offering can be retained by individual congregations wanting to make an impact in the lives of young people within their own community. The remaining 60% is used to support children-at-risk, youth, and young adults through ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency. You are welcome to give online and note “Pentecost”  in the box or you can write a check to Trinity with the memo “Pentecost. “   Please note, if you opt to give cash or use the Pentecost envelopes we realize they are in Spanish, we just received the wrong set this year but they are fine to use.

Sunday: Young adult Sunday class

This is a drop in group so come anytime. Are you age 18-24, and too old for Youth Group, but still have faith questions and/or experiences that have come up along your life journey?  Come join us during Sunday School hour (10:10am) in the Library for relaxed fellowship and faith seeking (and eating snacks!) together! Luke Bultena and Michelle Edwards will be there to facilitate. We plan to meet throughout the summer after the 10a.m. worship, so anytime you’re in town, just come as you are to hang out with us!
