Beloved Siblings in Christ,
There's been a flurry of activity around the church building this week! New Hope's moving truck arrived and we couldn't be more thrilled to have them back home. We look forward to a renewed relationship in our overlapping missions.
Vacation Bible School begins on Monday and staff and volunteers have been preparing! We are so exciting for Seuss on the Loose VBS after a year in which we had to suspend in-person activities. Keep an eye on Facebook next week for updates.
Saturday morning, join us for another walking tour of Greenwood. Meet at Trinity at 9:00am to walk the mile to Greenwood (don't forget water!), or meet us on the southwest corner of Greenwood and Archer at 9:15am. We will use the Greenwood Rising XR app, which is available in the Google Play Store and App Store. This is a self-guided tour of both sides of the block from Archer to the I-244 bridge on Greenwood. While only one block, the tour provides enough information to last 30 minutes to 45 minutes. You may want to bring headphones to listen to the narration more easily. Please consider patronizing some of the black-owned businesses in the area while we are in Greenwood.
Also on Saturday, we will host a syringe take back event from 10:00am-12:00pm with OKHRA (Oklahoma Harm Reduction Alliance). This is event is for syringe users of any kind to dispose of used needles safely for free. Syringe users who are Diabetic, using HRT, IDUs, or any other folks in need of safe disposal and/or exchange of syringes are welcome. H.O.P.E. will also be on site to offer free and confidential HIV and HCV testing. Stick around for free Naloxone and training on the use of Naloxone for overdose treatment. Let's commit to reducing harm together!
Scissortail Ballroom will present an inspiring show about the establishment, destruction and resilience of Tulsa's Greenwood community, also known as Black Wall Street this weekend. Community organizations were asked to sponsor tickets for this production, created by local artists, in order to ensure that cost was not an obstacle for area non-profits serving the black community.
Trinity is proud to be a sponsor of 30 tickets provided, free of charge, to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. If you would like to help underwrite the cost of these tickets ($25/each), you may place a gift in the offering plate or make a gift online. Please mark envelopes or checks with “Race Massacre.” When giving online, please select “other.” Be sure to let Hannah Middlebrook or Jenny Robertson know that your online gift is for this purpose. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
