BOOK CHAT: The Trinity Book Chat had a great season, and we’re now “on vacation” until September. In the meantime, we’re planning the coming season and need your ideas. Please send your book suggestions to Kathy Maher (Kathyngs@gmail.com) by Sunday, June 7. Thanks!
CONNECTIONS SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS: Join the Connections Class on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15 in Room 205 off of Langley Hall this month as we continue our series on marriage, being led by Karen and Andy Briscoe. Marriages are perpetually in a state of transition, continually moving from one season to another – perhaps not annually, as in nature, but just as certainly and consistently. Each one holds the potential for emotional health and happiness, and each has its challenges. We will follow the guide by Gary Chapman: The Four Seasons of Marriage.
Crafts for a Cause
There will be THREE opportunities to join the Crafts for a Cause group during June, as we continue to make pillows, blankets, bears and dolls to comfort patients at Fair Oaks Hospital. The work sessions will be: Mon., June 1; Mon., June 15; and Mon., June 29, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. Everyone’s welcome to join us; instruction and materials provided. We’ll be cutting fabric, sewing simple patterns and stuffing.
Currently, we have two volunteers knitting and crocheting baby hats and blankets (thanks to Judy Osha and Nell Gilmore). If that’s a skill you possess and you’d like to support our Crafts ministry with “homework,” contact Molly Sprouse at 703-356-4896 or email@example.com for more information.
June 14, 9:30 a.m.
We’re hosting a Discovery Class this month. It will give you a chance to ask questions about United Methodism, Trinity, joining the church, or ways you can get involved. (And yes, there will be snacks.)
If you have questions, please contact Eileen Gilmer at 703-356-3312 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
EDUCATION UPDATE: Church School Year-End Review on June 14 at 11:45 a.m.—Parents, teachers &staff are invited to review our church school offerings and times to help plan for 2015-16 education ministries. There will be a Children’s Social on the playground during this time with popsicles and fun. The next Education Team meeting will be July 19 at 11:45 a.m.
Thank You Teachers
