SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH:  During the summer FRED Talks, the following classes for children and youth will take place from 9:15-10:15am:

Children 3 years through 5th grade will meet with Nette Curtis for Children’s Summer Fun in Room 4.

Youth 6th through 12th grade will meet with Jared Brown in the Youth Room, Room 7.

SUMMER FRED TALKS:  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. Upcoming FRED Talks are:

6/24    Alan Diekman:  “When Worldviews Collide:  Religious Faith and Science, Part 2”  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.  Multiple scientific theories will be discussed, with the major focus on the theory of evolution and the Biblical creation stories.  Alan Diekman is a member at Second Presbyterian, a Presbyterian Elder, and Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Urology at UAMS.  Don’t worry if you missed the first session, Alan will catch everyone up. 

7/01    Summer break, no FRED Talk or other Sunday School classes

7/08    Nick Brown:  “Religious Faith in a Scientific Age – Creation: Chance or Choice?”  Raised in a devout Christian home, Nick Brown’s faith was challenged as his education in physics, math and engineering proceeded during his college years.  Hear how he personally rationalized the conflict between faith and science and, just maybe, have your own beliefs challenged as he argues both sides.  Nick Brown is a member of Trinity and is CEO of Southwest Power Pool.

7/15    Nancy Rorex:  “I Don’t Mind Dying, I Just Don’t Want to Be There When it Happens”   What do we think about death?  How do we say goodbye?  How does our faith lead us?  How do we support each other?  When is it time to smile again?  Nancy Rorex is the Pediatric Chaplain at Arkansas Hospice and a member of Trinity.

IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 24:  Liturgist Susan Brown will assist in leading worship.  Guest Minister Shari Coote will give God’s Word for Children.  The Sanctuary Choir will present John Purifoy’s arrangement of Bob Kilpatrick’s Lord, Be Glorified.  Guest Minister Shari Coote will preach “Just Browsing” drawn from James 1:22-25.  We will sing the hymns Womb of Life and Source of Being; O Jesus, I Have Promised; and To God Be the Glory.

FAMILY POOL PARTY ON SUNDAY, JUNE 24 HAS BEEN CANCELED:  With so many in our church family unable to attend, we’ve decided to cancel the Family Pool Party originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon at the Sublette family’s home.  We’ll let you know if it is rescheduled.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  June 24-30 birthdays at Trinity:  Greg Phillips, Bob Raff, Susan Calhoon, Cullen Cruse, Bobbie Smith, Ben Gatewood.  If your birthday is missing from this list, contact Trinity’s office at TrinityPresLR@gmail.com or 501-868-5848.

STEWPOT CLOTHING CLOSET NEEDS:  The Clothing Closet at Stewpot is running very short of some men’s items.  Specifically needed are men’s shoes, men’s short athletic socks (new), and men’s shorts in smaller sizes like 30, 32 & 34.  To help answer this call, we are launching a “Soles for Souls” campaign.  Please bring your gently-used men’s athletic shoes to church with you and just drop them off in the bin in the Narthex.  They will be put to good use!  Men’s shorts and packages of men’s new athletic socks may also be dropped off in the Narthex.  Direct questions to Elder Julianne Sublette at 501-786-3272.
