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

craftsThere 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 for more information.



Discovery Class

June 14, 9:30 a.m.

Room 205

         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
