The Trinity BIKE EXTRAVAGANZA is back!

This year will be bigger and busier than ever because it will happen on Community Day May 5. Trinity youth group will take the lead for the event but as always they can use some adult help. Given the potential for a lot of extra visitors, we will need people to help with setup and teardown of tables, canopies, bike selection, bike sizing, bike fixing, learning to ride with a balance bike, possibly doing crowd control, registering bikes to get contact information for later use, sizing helmets, etc. The youth will be giving the bikes a final cleaning with soap and water, maybe pumping tires and fixing the odd flat tire. We will have 50+ bikes of all sizes to manage so helping hands in the 8AM setup and 2PM teardown hours is especially needed, as well as people to show up in the middle of the day to give others a break. A special thanks to John Mickle for offering his big truck to help transport bikes. Contact Jim Uber (717) 938-3108 if you can help.

Sunnier Side of Sixty

The April Sunnier Side of Sixty service will be held on Tuesday, April 24th at 2 PM here in the Trinity sanctuary. Elaine Ocamb, a longtime Trinity member, will speak on the theme "Why praying for those who hurt us can make us stronger." The Trinity Flute Ensemble will minister in music and Communion will be served by our participating minister friends. Hymns will be sung together and a fellowship time will follow in the Mt. Olivet Room, hosted by the Faithful Trinity Volunteers.

The National Day of Prayer

Mark your calendar for the first Thursday in May - May 3rd. There will be a Kick-off Prayer Rally on Wednesday evening, May 2nd, followed by a 24 hour prayer vigil. The prayer vigil will conclude on Thursday evening with the Send-Off Prayer Rally on the steps of Trinity. We will then be sent to the New Cumberland community to pray. Each venue will just be 1/2 hour in length. Plan to be part of this exciting 24 hour prayer emphasis!

Prayer Shawl Ministry - Our Featured Ministry during April

Barbara Zimmerman started a prayer shawl ministry at Trinity in 2007. In April, 2008 the Praying Trinity Stitchin’ Sisters was officially established and are celebrating ten years of dedicated ministry. In the past ten years, 656 shawls have been created with prayer to the glory of God and given to loved ones in need. The prayer shawls you see are available so, if you have a need or know someone who does, please see a Sitchin’ Sister before you leave today.
