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

Potluck Picnic & Blessing of the Bikes
To celebrate the end of the programming year, we are invited to gather at Richmond Park for a potluck picnic at 11:30 am on Sunday, June 12
. Bring your own tableware and food to share. We reserved the shelter house; so, there will be cover if it rains.
Earlier at worship, we will resume our traditional Blessing of the Bikes. Every bicycle rider is invited to bring their bike (or a symbol of their bike such as a helmet) into the sanctuary. We’ll pray a blessing over the people and gear as we enjoy another season of riding. Bike riders are invited to cycle to the Richmond Park Potluck Picnic in a bicycle caravan.
The 2022 annual gathering of the Reformed Church in America, called General Synod, will begin on June 9 in Pella, Iowa. Both Pastor Sarah and Trinity elder Jan Koopman will be serving as delegates this year.
