Mini-Fair Bazaar and Luncheon,  Saturday, October 21 from 10:30 to 1:30

Be sure to mark your calendar for this great event. Everyone from Trinity is asked to participate.

Your home-canned goods (jams, jellies, relishes, etc.), cookies, cakes, pies, candies, and baked goods always add to the Country Kitchen being a big success. If you knit, crochet, or do needlework, these items are in big demand.

The Joy Crafters have been busy working on all kinds of crafts, including jewelry, cards, and needlework. Maybe you are crafty, also, and would like to donate to this project.

Check around your home for good, used items that you can contribute to the Trash & Treasure. Marsha Bonicatto hopes there is less trash and more treasure.

We’ll also have bakery items, frozen homemade raviolis, and soups for sale.
Lunch is served from 11:00 to 1:00, and donations are always welcome. Please sign up when the list comes around.

The menu includes hot sandwiches, a salad bar, an assortment of pies, and beverages.
Nuts and Rada knives will be for sale.
We welcome cash donations, too.

Keep Saturday, October 21 open for a fun-filled day!

 I am Pastor Geri Hamlen and I would like to welcome you to Trinity. We have an active, friendly church community and I would very much like to meet you, in the name of Jesus Christ.   Please join us for worship, for fellowship and for service to the world, by the power of the Holy Spirit!
 The Vital Church Initiative is an educational program designed and used by the Michigan Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church since 2011 to inspire and challenge local congregations to let the Holy Spirit move them towards renewal, renovation, and liveliness.

Trinity UMC is in the first Upper Peninsula group of churches to participate in VCI. (They were working out the kinks before bringing it this far north!) This is an example of your apportionment dollars at work here in our very own church.

If you have any questions, please contact any of the people on the teams. Their phone numbers are in the church directory, or call the office, 774-2545.
