Can you help water the gardens? On the "In the Garden " foyer bulletin board is a signup sheet to help water the potatoes, beets and carrots the children planted on May 27th.
Tom suggests we water Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There is a hose outside the nursery and it takes about 1/2 hour watering each of 10 beds for 2 minutes. Please check your schedules and see when you might be able to give some time so we have a bountiful harvest in the Fall. Thank you.

Hurricane Harvey Letter & Fundraising

Dear Friend,

Over the last four days we’ve heard countless stories about lives lost and those who have been displaced and lost their homes due to Hurricane Harvey. This is one of the worst hurricanes to hit the states since Katrina.

What can you do?  Two things:

One: The following link will take you to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance update, along with information on how/where to make a financial contribution.   This is the most immediate way to help as relief agencies are asking for funds to purchase supplies.

https://www.presbyterianmission.org/story/presbyterians-mobilize-help-people-texas-recover-hurricane-harvey/

Second: With the leadership of Elder Rich Wilson, Elder for Missions here at Trinity, we are forming a team toorganize a musical fund-raising/benefit event here at Trinity.  We hope this event will feature the Anchorage Jazz Ensemble, plus choirs from Huffman Elementary and South High School.   If you wish to join Rich in coordinating efforts, here is his contact information:

richwilsonak@gmail.com

(907) 952-1502

As President Trump said earlier today, this is a storm of epic proportions.  May our response to it be even more memorable.

Let us keep the people of Texas and Louisiana in our prayers.

Sincerely,

Pastor Todd Allen

One Great Hour of Sharing is ecumenical.  Many Christian denominations work together cooperatively to create the resources that interpret the offering.  Each denomination gives some of the gifts it receives for shared ministry through Church World Service.  Each denomination decides how the gifts its members give will be used.  www.pcusa.org/oghs/  PC(USA) divides our contribution into about thirds-Presbyterian Hunger Program, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Self-Development of People.  We will receive this offering during Worship on April 9th and 16th.

 

The Anaktuvuk Pass (AKP) Mission Trip is coming in June!  Stop by the AKP table in the lobby on April 9th to get information on this important mission and see how you can be a part of it as a traveler or local supporter.  Also, save the date for the first AKP planning meeting to be held April 30th at 11:45 in the Youth Room, Room 6.
