EASTER EGG HUNT ON PALM SUNDAY, MARCH 25:  This year’s children’s Easter Egg Hunt will take place on Palm Sunday, March 25, as we continue the tradition of hiding the eggs here on the grounds at Trinity, weather permitting.  We invite all children 5th grade and younger to gather under the breezeway with their Easter baskets at 10:00am.  There they will receive instructions and be sent off to hunt down all the colorful, surprise-filled eggs.  Take this great opportunity to invite your friends and neighbors with children to join us!

PALM SUNDAY CHORAL PRESENTATION:  Invite guests and make plans to attend a special presentation by our Trinity Sanctuary Choir on Sunday, March 25, during our regular worship time.  Joining us will be guest instrumentalists and guest actors from the Arkansas Repertory Theater as we present Lloyd Larson’s Who Do You Say That I Am?  In this beautiful choral work as you experience the story of grace and sacrificial love, may your response to the claims of Christ echo the response of the Roman officer standing near the cross as Jesus died:  “Truly, this was God’s Son!”

CHILDREN’S LENTEN PROJECT:  As a Lenten outreach project, the children of Trinity are collecting items to make Easter baskets for 19 of the residents at Presbyterian Village.  The children will deliver them after church on March 25.  The items for the baskets include: chocolates and other candies, sodas, Little Debbie snacks, stuffed animals and handmade cards from the children.  Direct questions to Angela Smiley at 247-6470.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY:  March 28 is the last week for Women’s Bible Study, Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting.  Our guest speaker is Nancy Rorex leading the lesson on Trusting in God.

SENIOR HIGH YOUTHQUAKE:  Join us at Ferncliff April 13-15 for a weekend of fun and worship!  All current 9th-12th graders are eligible to attend.  See Jared Brown to register or for more information.  Deadline to register is Wednesday, March 28.

MAUNDY THURSDAY SEDER PRESENTATION ON MARCH 29: A representative of Jews for Jesus, an organization for Jews who recognize Jesus as the Messiah, will demonstrate a traditional Passover Seder at Trinity at 6:00pm in the sanctuary on Maundy Thursday, March 29.  “Christ in the Passover” shows the link between the ancient Festival of Redemption and Christ as the Lamb of God.  This demonstration is visual, so the congregation will actually see a table set with traditional Passover items.  The speaker uses Scripture as well as the visual items to walk through a Jewish Passover Seder, weaving the story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ.  The words He spoke in the upper room come alive as each Hebraic item is carefully explained.  We will conclude the service with a celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE OF MUSIC AND ART AT NOON ON MARCH 30:  At noon on Good Friday, March 30, David Glaze will present a selection of organ and piano music in the sanctuary which will take us through the last events of Jesus’ life, from His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, to the time in the Garden of Gethsemane, to His last supper with His disciples, to His crucifixion.  Projected classical art will accompany the musical selections, and a program of references in the pew Bible and hymnal will also be provided.  The noon program is designed to be a time when people can stop in the middle of the day, depart their busy world, and quietly reflect on the Holy Week passion.

JOIN US FOR EASTER BREAKFAST ON APRIL 1:  On Easter Sunday, April 1, Nancy Rorex and the Fellowship Committee will serve up a delicious Easter breakfast in the Fellowship Hall beginning at 9:00 and ending at 10:00.  Come early or later, but don’t miss out!

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS:  Lenten calendars and a collection bag have been mailed out to Trinity households. This is an interactive fundraiser for the congregation to give out of our abundance during the entire season of Lent.  This project will help us raise funds to send our youth to summer camp and mission trips like the Jr. High Jubilee trip to Mo-Ranch this summer.  Additional bags and calendars are available on the round table in the Narthex.  Filled bags will be received during worship on Easter Sunday, April 1.  Direct questions to Jared Brown at 870-299-0989.

WOMEN’S JEWELRY MAKING SESSION AND SALAD LUNCHEON ON APRIL 4:  On Wednesday, April 4 at 10:00am, join us for a jewelry making session led by Teresa Alexander in Fellowship Hall followed by a salad potluck lunch.  Even if you didn’t come to Women’s Bible Study, you are welcome to join us for this fun-filled morning and take home a beautiful necklace.  All jewelry making supplies will be provided.  Direct questions to Nancy Howell at 501-519-3281.

BOOK DRIVE FOR ELAINE, AR LIBRARY:  As some of you may know, our son, Michael, is a documentary filmmaker living in the San Francisco area.  Currently, he is working on a film about the Elaine, Arkansas Race Massacre of 1919.  Over 200 men, women and children were killed.  In helping Michael with this film, we have become acquainted with the people of this small, poor Arkansas town.  Among their many needs, we discovered they have no library – no access to books.  We are trying to establish one for them.  Any book donations would be truly appreciated and are crucial to the development of the library and the education of the people of Elaine.  Our next trip there will be during the first week in April.  If you would like to donate, please deliver your books to Trinity for us to pick up.  Thank you in advance for your generosity!   Mary Louise and Mick Wilson

DAVID GLAZE AND THE RIVER CITY MEN’S CHORUS PRESENT "THE BEAT GOES ON: A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE 60S!" at Second Presbyterian Church on Sunday, April 15 at 3:00pm; Monday, April 16 at 7:00pm; and Thursday, April 19 at 7:00pm.  All performances are free and open to the public, but seating is first-come, first-served.  Many have said the music of the 60’s is the soundtrack of their lives.  We hope the music of The Beatles, Beach Boys, The Association, Simon & Garfunkel and many others will take you back to a time of tie-dye garments, Mustangs, cherry cokes, and dragging Main Street.  Make plans now to bring your friends and family.  Direct questions to David Glaze at 501-773-4547.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO TURN IN PLEDGE CARDS!  Church members are encouraged to make a yearly pledge because that assists the Session in setting Trinity’s annual budget.  If you have not turned in a pledge card, please prayerfully consider doing so.  Pledge cards are available on the round table in the Narthex.  Direct questions to Church Treasurer Terri Robinson at 501-765-6517.

We are happy to include your announcements related to the life of the church in the Sunday bulletin or the Wednesday weekly email update.  Please email your announcement of no more than 150 words to by 5:00pm Tuesday for inclusion in the email update and bulletin.
