Coffee Hour Potluck Sunday

The first Sunday of each month, we hold a potluck coffee hour. Please bring a coffee hour item to share. (last names A-L odd months, M-Z even months). We still need hosts for these Sundays as well as hosts for all our coffee hours. Sign up on the schedule on the coffee hour table or contact Lynn B.

Attention Bread Bakers!

We need volunteers to sign up to bake Communion bread for one or more of the seven Sundays of the Easter season. We provide the recipes; you provide the labor of love. The two loaves may be dropped off before the early service, or left in the church refrigerator the day before. Look for the poster in the Social Hall or contact Carol B to sign up for Sundays April 21 – June 2. Copies of the approved recipes are in the Altar Guild mailbox in the copier/mail room. Please contact Carol B with any questions.

Join us for our special 30th Annual Handbell Concert on Saturday, May 18, at 7 p.m. The combined handbell choirs of Trinity and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church are preparing a delightful evening of music, including many fun pieces for the whole family to enjoy. The concert is free (free-will offering). Bring family and friends! A reception follows the concert.
