Prayer Shawl Ministry

Our next few meetings will be on Friday, May 26, June 9 and Friday, June 23 at 1:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Room. All are welcome to come and knit and join in the lively conversation. There is an abundance of yarn available!

Poem about Pickleball @ Trinity by Ken Estabrooks:   Trinity United Pickleball Team


Always wondered how to play a ukulele??  Didn’t know where to begin??  Now you have no excuse!!  Come out to Trinity on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday nights @ 6 p.m.  We have spare ukuleles;  we are beginners intermixed with a few people with experience;  we have music;  we have fun;  we sing-a-long and try new and old songs.  Drop in any time!  Our fingers only last an hour 🙂

The group name is ‘Close Enough’ …..our chording may not be perfect, but it is ‘close enough’


 Do you love watching movies?  Are you an armchair critic?  How would you rate the last movie you saw on a scale of 1 – 10?  Like to hash over the details?  Pick apart the plot?  Figure out what the hero coulda, shoulda done?  Thought about what you would have done?  Wondered if or how it related to your faith?

Then Trinity’s Movie Club is for you!

We meet on the 2nd Friday of each month, from September till June, at 7:30 p.m. in the Nursery.  Watch the ‘featured’ movie at home or gather with your friends.  A copy to borrow and a handy ‘viewing guide’ will be available through the office.  Then come on out and join the fun.

The 2017-18 line-up will have the usual variety that is sure to stimulate interest and provoke differing opinions.  From The Great Escape to Grave of the Fireflies, each of these movies is  related to the theme of war.  So bring your ideas or just bring yourself along to listen.  Come each month, or as you’re able or for a particular movie.  Sometimes there’s popcorn – sometimes a field trip – and always there’s a lively discussion.

All the movies we have watched in the last few years are available to borrow from Trinity’s library for your own viewing pleasure.  Watch the Sunday bulletin or check the website or newsletter for upcoming movies.  And be sure to mark Movie Club on your calendar!
