Midweek Lenten Services:  Join us on Wednesdays in Lent, beginning on March 1 at 6pm, for a Lenten Soup Supper before our Midweek Lenten Services (which will follow at 6:30pm). Please sign up if you are planning to bring soup to one or more of these suppers. As all are welcome at the table of Christ’s sacrament all are welcome to these community suppers. Even if you are not going to bring soup, please feel free to bring bread of all kinds or drinks to share. Keep in mind that we are a dry campus and all drinks must be alcohol free. Please do not feel limited by only three names on the list – if you would like to bring something on a full date please do. The more the better.

Please take a moment to ponder the image to the right in preparation for the Midweek Lenten Service on March 1 at 6:30pm. How does the image make you feel? When you look at it, does anything draw your attention? What is your overall impression of the work? I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Briefly Noted

Transfiguration Thanks:  We had the full complement of musicians on hand for last Sunday’s celebration of the Transfiguration.  Many thanks to our Handbell and Chancel Choirs, as well as Pam Kalapay, for her excellent instrumental support.  As we move into Lent, thing become a little more austere, musically and liturgically speaking, but we look forward to this time of clarity and compassion, and will be busy preparing for Holy Week and Easter, as well.  Singers are most welcome to join the Festival Choir as we begin our preparations.  Please speak with David Ruhf if you’re interested!

Ash Wednesday:  Many thanks to everyone who turned out to observe Ash Wednesday, with particular thanks to Pastor Spencer for offering Drive-Up Ashes on Wednesday morning.  Several folks from both within and without the parish took advantage of the opportunity.  We had excellent attendance at the evening service, as well.

Young at Heart:  Save the date for Young at Heart’s planning meeting, which will take place on Tuesday, March 14, at noon.  Please bring a brown bag lunch, your calendar, and some ideas for activities/outings for the year.

VBS Leadership Sought:  The Christian Education Committee will begin working on Vacation Bible School soon (though it’s many months away) and are hoping a generous soul (or generous souls – this can absolutely be a team effort) will step forward to help lead VBS.  Please speak with Sue Gordon or Pastor Spencer if you’re interested or have any questions.  The post-pandemic rebuild continues – it would gladden many hearts to revive VBS this summer!

News from the South:  We recently heard from Trinity’s former Pastor, Chris Eichorn, and his wife, Pam.  Things are very well with their family, and they’re happy to announce the arrival of their granddaughter, Eliza Faye Tucker, daughter of Dylan and Jacqueline Tucker.  The Tuckers live in Cary, NC, and the proud grandparents have been to meet Eliza.  They send their love and best wishes to the congregation.
