Trinity this week – Holy Humour Sunday – April 16, 2023

Hello Trinity Friends,
This Sunday is Holy Humour Sunday!  You are encouraged to share a good joke or two during one of the joke segments in worship. What is Holy Humor Sunday?  It is a centuries old tradition that takes place on the Sunday after Easter. Many Christian churches celebrate the day with joy, laughter and some lighthearted fun, as a way to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. After Children’s time, the Sunday School will be cooking up a tricky treat and hear the story of Doubting Thomas.
