Trinity this week – April 27, 2017

Hello Trinity Friends.

If you have been by Trinity this past week you will notice some big changes in our Sanctuary! Rev Ted writes: “Trinity taps into a centuries-long tradition of cooperation between faith and the arts as we host William Shakespeare’s beloved “Romeo and Juliet” from May 4 – 14th. The Church and the dramatic arts exist to share stories that probe and enrich human living. For the next 3 Sundays, Trinity’s sanctuary becomes a Victorian playhouse and our worship is enriched with a decidedly Shakespearean flair.”
This Sunday, we will have an opportunity to meet some of the cast – including Romeo and Juliet, who will be joining us for Children’s time. 

Tickets for Romeo + Juliet as well as the Glitter Dinner are available from Wanda in the office or after church on Sunday.
Ushers are needed for Romeo + Juliet.  If you are able to help, please sign up on the list in the Fellowship Hall.  Thank-you!
AOTS Gift cards are available for purchase this Sunday after Church from Ed Rose.  Purchase of these gift cards help support the youth in our community.  You can purchase cards for a number of things: Grocery Stores, Department stores, Gas, Restaurants, Coffee Shops and more!  Gift cards are now available for Farquhar’s Orchard Fresh Food Market.
Registration is now open for Trinity’s Vacation Bible Camp!  
Pick up your packages from the table outside the office or download them from the website.  Registration is limited to 50 kids (and we always fill up fast.)  Get your registrations in early to guarantee your spot.  Trinity’s Super Hero Training Camp runs July 24th – 28th from 9:30 – 3:30. Come on out and develop your super hero skills, make new friends and have fun exploring the bible through games, crafts, cooking, music, experiments and more.  $60 (includes all food, t-shirt and materials).
