It's a fun POT LUCK dinner on May 22! Enjoy fun, food, and fellowship at our pot luck dinner on Sunday, May 22, immediately following the late services. The theme is "Getting to Know You," and you'll choose a table where you wish to sit based on a common interest. Then, after dinner, we'll all get to know some Trinity "celebrities" better when they hop up on stage and answer various questions. For example, ever wonder what the most unusual thing is that Pastor Horner has eaten? Or Nancy Martin's favorite book? Or Pastor Easton's favorite holiday tradition? You'll have to wait for those answers and more! Sign up by May 8 at the receptionist desk and online at www.timetosignup.com/trinitycamphill; you'll also indicate your table choice (such as gardening, dining out, movie lover, outdoor enthusiast, sports fan, and more). Note: The "pot luck" item you should plan to bring depends on your last name. Last names beginning with A-I bring main dishes; J-S, veggies and side dishes; T-Z, desserts. Questions? Contact Kathy Holmes at kathyholmes@mac.com.

This could be an ideal job for anyone who likes technology and who likes to multi-task during worship services. For more information, write "Soundboard" on the Worship Witness pad and someone will contact you.
