Beloved Siblings in Christ,
This is the final week of school for most of our young people and folks are beginning to turn their attention toward summer (even if it hasn't felt much like summer this week!). We are currently planning summer programing, including Christian formation and summer camps, and we invite you to take part.
For our children, Vacation Bible School and Acting Camps are planned for July 18-22nd. Combine both camps for a full day of fun! If your kids are older, and just too cool for VBS, we'll be happy to keep them busy as CITs (Counselors in Training) to help with camp. CIT training takes place on July 17 from 12:00pm-3:00pm. Please let Becky or Hannah know if your young person wants to be a CIT.
Late spring and early summer classes are also forming now. Fr. Lee's class "Discovering, Understanding, and Engaging Spiritual Gifts: Where Do You Fit In?" has already begun, but you are always welcome to join them in the conference room on Sundays at 12:15. There will not be class this week, due to Fr. Lee attending Urban Adventure with the youth, but will resume next week.
Deacon Deborah's class "Book Discussion: The Gifts of Imperfection, by Brene Brown" begins on June 6th. According to BreneBrown.com “This book is an invitation to join a wholehearted revolution. A small, quiet grassroots movement that starts with each of saying, ‘My story matters because I matter.’ A movement where we can take to the streets with our messy, heartbreaking, grace-filled, and joyful lives. A movement fueled by freedom that comes when we stop pretending everything is OK when it isn’t. A call that rises up from our bellies when we find the courage to celebrate those intensely joyful moments even though we’ve convinced ourselves that savoring happiness is inviting disaster. Revolution might sound a little dramatic, but in this world, choosing authenticity and worthiness is an absolute act of resistance.” REGISTER NOW
Later in the summer, our Marvel Movie Series will explore the big themes and theological concepts of 4 marvel movies. We invite youth in 5th grade and up, and adults, to join us for this engaging weekly class, which will be followed by a potluck dinner. REGISTER NOW.
Finally, make sure to mark your calendars for the Trinity Sunday parish picnic! We're going big this year so join us for lunch from the grill, complimentary sno cones from Josh's Sno Shack, and music from the Midlife Crisis Band. There is no cost for this event but donations are gratefully accepted. Please RSVP here to help us plan.
We're looking forward to a busy and fun-filled summer of spiritual growth and deepening community.
