In person Sunday School for students ages PreK through 6th grade will take place 9:15 - 10:15 am in the Youth Room. The lesson portion of the morning will take place both in person and online, 9:30 - 10:00 am. A Zoom link will be sent out to all registered students ages PreK-6.
Adult Sunday School
Have you ever asked God why some tragic event was allowed to happen? Why do innocent people suffer? Why do your prayers go unanswered? Why can you not see God's will for your life? Join us for Adult Sunday School this year as we try to make sense of God's will for our lives. We will use the book, "Why?" by Pastor Adam Hamilton, to help guide us as we try to gain a deeper faith and a greater trust that our God is a loving God. We will meet in the Conference room from 9:15-10:15 am Sunday mornings, following Trinity's Covid protocols. Zoom will be available for those who would like to attend but cannot in person. For questions or more information, please contact Bron Sheriff.
Social Ministry Chemo Bag Project
The Social Ministry Committee will be collecting items for The Chemo Bag Project, which is committed to providing gift bags filled with items to provide comfort to men and women in the Lehigh Valley going through chemotherapy treatments. Each month we will be collecting one item from their list. This month's item is composition books (the kind with stiff covers). All donations can be placed in the bin found under the carport.

Youth News - Service Project Update
A big thank you goes out to the entire congregation for helping the youth reach out to members of our community that are living at Gracedale. With your help, we were able to make over 200 cards and over 200 gift bags. We are still collecting donations and will continue to assemble more gift bags. Your donations can be dropped off under the carport in a bin that is on the bench. There are blank cards for you to take also. Bring them back when you are finished creating your cards. May God continue to bless us all.
