Presbyterian Women's Spring Luncheon and Birthday Offering Celebration

Ladies, you have until May 8th to pay for your $10 reservation for the PW Spring Luncheon for noon Thursday, May 12. A delicious catered meal (Chicken Marsala and all the fixings) will be followed by the PW Birthday Offering and Installation of Officers. Our own Gayle Hoverson, a docent at Biltmore, will share her behind the scenes knowledge of the Women of Biltmore. This is a PowerPoint follow-up to the program she provided for us several years ago on Christmas at Biltmore. Sign up today in the narthex.
RELAY FOR LIFE
The Son Worshippers, Trinity’s Relay for Life team will be in the narthex on May 8th and May 15th to take orders for luminaria which are lit at dusk to remember and honor loved ones lost to cancer and those currently fighting it. The ceremony will be a part of the Relay for Life on May 20th in Jackson Park and is part of the fund raising efforts for American Cancer Society.
PENTECOST OFFERING - Sunday, May 15, 2016
We were glad to share not only God’s good news with you, but also our very lives because we cared for you so much. – I Thessalonians 2:8
Each year on Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the arrival of the Holy Spirit as a bringer of new life. With the Spirit’s coming, we no longer need to settle for business as usual, but can know the transforming, redeeming love of God that make the impossible possible. The Pentecost Offering is one of the Special Offerings of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and is about helping young people begin life with a strong start - a solid foundation of faith formed in the first third of life, from childhood through young adulthood. Gifts to the Pentecost Offering unite young people in Christ and inspire them to share their faith, ideas, and unique gifts with the church and the world. Presbyterian congregations are finding new ways to minister to children at risk in their own communities. General Assembly programs are advocating for children and developing youth and young adult leaders. Congregations keep 40% of funds to support the local youth-focused programs they are most passionate about. 60% of the funds are remitted to the Presbyterian Mission Agency to support the Young Adult Volunteers program, Ministries with Youth program, and education and advocacy for children at risk through the “Educate A Child: Transform the World” national initiative. Since 1998, Presbyterians of all ages have raised more then $11,000 for ministries that benefit younger members of God’s family. We believe we are called to do even more to support and care for young people to build a stronger foundation of faith. They are the future of our church and the world. Please give as generously as you are able to the Pentecost Offering on Pentecost Sunday, May 15.
