Farewell and Godspeed to Pastor Rike will be held at the 9:30 Sunday Worship Service this Sunday, May 27, 2018.  Following the 9:30 am service (approximately 11:00 am) Fellowship Committee is hosting a Pizza & Root Beer Farewell Gathering for Pastor Rike and his family. Please join us in expressing our thanks and good wishes for his future ministry. 


Rev. Roger Prehn will be our supply pastor June 2 & 3 and will begin as Trinity’s Interim Pastor on June 9, 2018.  For pastoral emergencies please contact Rev. Prehn at 407-466-4909.


Monday night bible study will meet Memorial Day and then be finished for the summer. If and when we start another study, it will likely be during daytime hours. Most of the 12 who participate struggle to drive in the dark, compounded by any inclement weather.


Halifax Urban Ministry Soup Kitchen: Volunteers will be serving at 10:30 am on Monday May 28 at 316 North Street, Daytona Beach.   A signup sheet is located in the narthex this weekend. 


Property Committee: Have a Green Thumb? Parking lot flower beds could use you!.  Please call George Cramer @ 386-847-8147 for details.   Thank you.


Summer Choir sings for our summer worship services – Saturday night and Sunday morning – and YOU are invited to participate.  Here is how it works:

· you may sing at the service time/day of your choice

· no previous choir experience is necessary; being able to “carry a tune” is preferable

· practice in the fellowship hall 40 minutes before the service (Sat. 4:20pm or Sun. 8:50am)

· there are no mid-week rehearsals during the summer

· music will be easy and quick to learn

· we will not wear choir robes

· during the service you may sit in the choir area or sit in the congregation and just come over to the choir area when we sing (usually at the time of the offering)

· you may sing every week, occasionally, just once, or whatever is best for you

· your musical leadership is greatly appreciated!

· Please talk with Cantor Larson or any choir member if you have questions.

Dedicating Chancel Flowers: The year-round Flower Chart located on the porch bulletin board provides opportunities for families to sign up to donate flowers to celebrate special occasions, remember loved ones, give thanks to God, or honor another person.  The cost for weekly flowers is $25.  


SCENT-si-tive:  Many of our members are sensitive to strong fragrances and perfumes especially if they have lung issues, are on chemo or have allergy issues.  It would be helpful if we maintain a scent free church environment.

He is regarded as the father of the Reformed churches.


Tuesday, May 29     Jiri Tranovsky, hymnwriter, died 1637     Tranovsky is considered to be the father of Slovak hymnody as well as an important reformer of the Slavic church. He translated the Augsburg Confession (the basis of Lutheran teachings) and published a collection of Slovak hymns.
