In June 2019, members of Trinity ventured to Cherryfield, Maine for our ninth annual mission trip to work with the Housing Rehabilitation Program of the Maine Seacoast Mission. The team works on houses or mobile homes for people that do not have the resources to improve the houses themselves.
Mardi Gras in May was a fundraiser to benefit the Lower Susquehanna Synod’s Always Being Made New campaign for youth and young adult programs. It was a delightfully festive event.
Many think of Lent as a time to give things up—to make sacrifices—as Jesus did for us. But Lent can also be a time to take things on—to make deliberate choices to live your life like Christ has called you to do—to serve all people, following the example of Jesus. This Lenten season our Faith Connect Kids! will take on the task of serving others through “40 Days of Kindness!” We’ll share God’s love with friends and family both in the church and in the community.
Our annual Chili Cook Off features a wide variety of traditional and creative chilies with our chili chefs vying to have their chilies voted best in class and to be awarded the much coveted Chili Trophy! It is a wonderful family experience each year.
