No Sunday Morning Service on June 5

On Sunday June 5  Trinity will host Luke Harkema’s ordination service at 3pm. This will serve as our weekly worship gathering as well as a special service of Classis to ordain Luke. The liturgy will be a hybrid of all of our favorite rhythms combined with the ordaining and charging of Luke as he emerges into his ministry. So please plan to attend church at 3pm.

Vision & Values Implementation
At a May retreat, consistory committed to implementing four strategies this year to help us live into our vision & values:
Kids Hope / Neighborhood Partnering — start a partnership with Kids Hope to form relationships with Harrison Park children and then look for other new partnership opportunities
Learning Opportunities — create classes, studies, field trips, movie groups, etc. to help us learn in engaging ways
Feasting Together — foster connections over food including potlucks on the first Sunday of the month and Breaking Bread
Story Sharing — provide opportunities to share and hear one another’s stories in Second Hour and beyond
