Trinity Round-Up: May 2015

Crafts for a Cause

The car trunk was filled up with neck pillows, baby hats, heart pillows, surgery dolls and bears as Crafts for a Cause made its monthly delivery of comfort items to Fair Oaks Hospital. You can be a part of this important mission work by joining us at one of our Monday night work sessions this month: on May 4 and May 18, both at 7 p.m. in Room 124. Your skills can vary from beginner to advanced, as we’ll be cutting fabric, using sewing machines, stuffing and hand-stitching. We have crochet and knitting projects as well. In June, we’ll be meeting on June 1, 15 and 29. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse at 703-356-4896 or mollysprouse@gmail.com.

CONNECTIONS SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS: The Connections class continues its focus on marriage. We will discuss the material in the book The Zimzum of Love: A New Way of Understanding Marriage by Rob and Kristen Bell. According to the author, “This book is about the deeper mysteries of marriage. Something powerful and profound happens in marriage… We believe that you can grow in your awareness of these realities, learning how to better see what’s going on in the space between you and how the love can flow all the more freely between you. It’s called the zimzum of love.” All are welcome to attend, advance preparation is not required. The class will continue to meet in Room 205 from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings and be led by Karen and Andy Briscoe.
