You will need to sign up to attend, the link for doing so will go live, and you will receive an email with the link, this Tuesday morning.

Surplus of Face Masks to Share!
We have heard that anyone attending any type of summer camp this year (church, sports, scouts, etc.) needs to bring multiple face masks with them. Trinity has almost a full box of white cloth masks that we received for free back at the beginning of the pandemic. We are happy to share! If you are in need of masks for this or any other purpose, please call or stop by the office to pick up whatever supply you desire. We only have about 450 extra!!
Faith and Racial Justice Conversation
We will continue our conversation on the three types of microaggressions as shared by Rev. Dr. Marsha Williams on Wednesday, August 4 @ 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall. If you missed the first one and want to come this time, please do so. Don't worry, we'll recap what we've talked about so far! Our discussion centers on identifying and figuring out how we can be a part of correcting this act or message from within our families, communities, and church. You are invited to join this prayerful, uplifting, sometimes difficult, and challenging conversation. If you have questions, please contact Pastor Jennifer, Cathy Zavacki, Melissa Boandl, Jemmie Jones, or Warner Jones. We hope to see you around the table.
Young at Heart Events
Young at Heart will be going to the Nazareth Diner for lunch on Thursday, August 12th, at noon. We will meet at the restaurant. Please RSVP to Kathy Sigley by Sunday, August 8th.
On September 29th, we will be going to Penn's Peak, for a Neil Diamond tribute concert. We'll carpool from church, departing at 10:30 am. Lunch and the performance will be at Penn's Peak. The cost for tickets is $46, and the deadline is Sunday, September 5th. Please contact Kathy Sigley for more information.
Synod Happenings of Note
How has your church been able to: Heal the Hurting, Love the Land, and Engage the Stranger? Learn new ideas to take home and try. And show and tell others about the “vital signs” you’ve seen “growing” in your midst through God’s grace, love and care in your community. On August 14th from 10am-3pm, we will also go deeper into ways the “Growing Young” movement across our Synod is making a difference and changing the ways we are growing as a Jesus-centered community. We hope every congregation will send at least two participants, to learn and share and grow. Join us August 14, 2021. You may register by following this link.

We usually donate to the Nazareth Lunch Program. Since that program is not operating this summer, July Joyful Giving will benefit the residents of Gracedale. Please click here for more information.

Plant a Row is Back!
Beginning Sunday, June 13th, you may bring your fresh garden produce to church on Sundays, from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm, and leave it in the designated coolers, which are adjacent to the car port. We're partnering with the Nazareth Area Food Bank again this year. Many thanks to Ken and Pam Kalapay for facilitating our participation in this most worthy initiative.

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.
