Lenten Dinner, Conversation and Worship
Everything I Learned About Communion I Forgot in Confirmation: Join us Wednesday evenings, beginning March 13th, in Lent as we gather together for fellowship, food, and conversation around the topic of Holy Communion. Our conversation will connect and relate to the First Communion classes of our young ones and will give us an opportunity to discuss together this sacred meal that we share together every Sunday. Our schedule for each Wednesday evening will be as follows:
5:30-6:00: Dinner (Soup, Salad)
6:00-6:45: Reflection and Conversation
6:45-7:00: Closing Worship
The Lenten dinner services will continue every Wednesday through April 10th. The 2019 Lenten Devotionals are available here.
Forty Days – Forty Items
Lent begins March 6, 2019 (Ash Wednesday) and this year Trinity is stepping up its Stewardship Ministry by developing a way for all members to give gently used items you no longer need to those less fortunate in our community! There are black bags with notes tied on them with instructions for placing one item, such as clothing or household items, in the bag for every day of Lent. At the end of Lent, you can deliver this bag to your favorite charity, thrift shop, or even bring it to Trinity to be delivered to one of our partnering agencies such as Thrive or Link. It is asked that each family takes one bag. If you have any questions, please contact Todd Recupero. Bag rolls with instructions will be located in the Narthex entrance area for you to take home.
Hilton Area Blood Drive
Monday, March 18th from 1:30 to 5:30 PM at Hilton Christian Church, 100 James River Drive, Newport News.
The Return of Coloring Sunday
Last year, we started a new inter-generational event which allowed for not only fellowship and fun, but also the enhancement of our worship space during the Easter season. This year, that event returns! Sunday, March 24th during the Sunday school hour, we will gather downstairs in the social hall for another coloring Sunday. We have another round of posters that reflect on the Lenten Psalms and gospels which we can color together as a church family. Join in side by side with our youth, our kids, your friends, grab a colored pencil and spend the morning with some fun!
