TNT YOUTH GROUP LOCK-IN ON JUNE 2:  Youth, we’re having a lock-in at the church starting at 8:00pm on Saturday, June 2!  Bring your pillow, sleeping bag, swimsuit and towel, and church clothes for Sunday.  We’ll enjoy snacks, games, and plenty of other activities on Saturday night.  On Sunday morning we’ll have breakfast before Sunday School and will finish our time together at 10:30am worship with the rest of the Trinity family.  Direct questions to Jared Brown at 870-299-0989.

TRINITY’S SUMMER FRED TALKS BEGIN JUNE 3:  Similar to the well-known TED Talks, Trinity’s FRED Talks offer a wide variety of topics that will help open our eyes and hearts to God, God’s creation, and God’s children.  Faith, Religion, Education, and Discussion, FRED Talks may range from Christian theological and Biblical discussions to other religions to the needs in our community and our world.  But the talks’ focus and discussions always help us with our faithful response to issues and people as followers of Christ.  The talks take place in Trinity’s Gearing Hall on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15am with refreshments and fellowship time beginning at 9:00am.

6/03    Jeremy Wilhelmi:  “Grace in the Abundance of the Small” – We expect big and dramatic, something that overwhelms us.  All the while, God’s grace is popping up in the little, ordinary, underwhelming but profound moments we experience each day.

6/10    Scott Stern:  “Bible Study in an Age of Cynicism: What Is the Relevance of the Gospel in Today’s World?” – We struggle often in our primary mission to make disciples for Jesus Christ. How do we make Bible study meaningful for us today?  What does the gospel require of us?

6/17    Alan Diekman:  “When Worldviews Collide:  Religious Faith and Science, Part 1” – How do we respond when our religious faith/worldview is challenged by new information?  Over two sessions we will consider our response as Christians when science and scripture are seemingly in contradiction.

6/24    Alan Diekman:  “When Worldviews Collide:  Religious Faith and Science, Part 2” – Join Alan Diekman as he continues the discussion.  Don’t worry if you missed the first session, he’ll catch everyone up.

WOMEN @ THE TABLE (W@TT) JUNE FIELD TRIP!  On Wednesday, June 6, W@TT will be exploring Fulfillment and Fun.  Afterward we’ll be taking our monthly field trip to Charlotte’s Sweets and Eats in Keo, AR followed by a little retail therapy at the famous Blue Moose Boutique.  It takes about 40 minutes to get to Keo, so let’s carpool and get in a visit as we travel!  Please let either Susie Haynes (501-351-6284) or Nancy Howell (501-519-3281) know if you will attend.

FAMILY SWIM PARTY ON SUNDAY, JUNE 24:  The Education Division is sponsoring a Family Swim Party on Sunday, June 24 at 12:30pm at the home of Brad and Julianne Sublette, 32 Belle River Cove in Maumelle.  Your family is invited if you have a child going into the 5th grade or younger, including infants and toddlers.  If your family also has a youth age child, they are invited to tag along.  Brad will be grilling hamburgers and hotdogs and we ask that each family bring an appetizer or side item to share.  So that we’ll know how many to prepare for, please let Julianne Sublette (julianne@leadadvantage.us or 501-786-3272) know that you’ll be attending.

PASTOR JEFF PRICE AND JULIE PRICE are away on sabbatical through July 6.  Contact Julie Peak in the church office (501-868-5848) with questions and concerns during this time, or you may contact Chair of the Board of Deacons Nette Curtis at 501-658-3936 or Clerk of Session Brigita Gardner at 501-580-1252 with urgent pastoral care needs.
