Youth News for March 2020

…and some things in February as well…..

Pretzel Sunday School – This Sunday (2/23) – It’s everyone’s favorite Sunday…..Pretzel Sunday! We are celebrating a week early, so we can also celebrate burying the alleluia! Come during Sunday School to make pretzels, an alleluia banner to bury, and some crafts! 

Lent begins next week! Our Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake dinner is on Tuesday.

February 25, 6:00 p.m.
Bring your family and friends to Trinity’s annual “Fat Tuesday” dinner of pancakes, sausage, and stewed apples. It is our last meal of abundance before the fasting of Lent which begins on Ash Wednesday. Leave full and ready to take up the cross as our Lenten journey begins.
Reservations are not required, but we need a general idea of how many to expect. Sign up by using the form below and placing it in the offering plate or on the sheets posted in the Social Hall. A Free-will offering to cover costs will be collected at the supper.

Ash Wednesday is February 26. We will be having the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion at both services.

Annual Cook Off Winners!  Trinity’s Top Chefs
Thanks to all who submitted entries to Trinity’s annual cook off and to all who joined in fellowship by tasting the entries. The winner of the salad category was the Kid’s Crunchy Slaw submitted by the Pre-K Sunday School Class, and the winner of the soup category was Shrimp Corn Chowder entered by Elizabeth and Ben R. Over $430 was raised which will support Trinity’s Youth Group and a donation to Manna Food Center.

Wednesdays in Lent
March 4 – April 1
Theme: Exhortations of Jesus
On these mid-week Wednesdays we will celebrate the Eucharist using Taizé-like music and prayers.  A brief homily will give voice to one of the exhortations of Jesus found in the gospel of Matthew: Repent, Be Perfect, Follow Me, Be Reconciled, Seek. A simple soup and bread supper starting at 6:30 pm will precede the worship.  Come and join us.
