PASTOR JEFF’S WEDNESDAY EVENING STUDY:  Join Jeff Price at 6:00pm Wednesdays in Room 2 for “Pastor Jeff’s Favorite Preachers.”  We will gather to watch a video of a great sermon by one of Jeff’s favorite preachers and then discuss it.  We’ll dig into the sermon process, but more importantly, the underlying scripture message we find there.

IT’S BEGINNING TO SOUND A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!  Our wonderful Sanctuary Choir is beginning to work on music which will be sung in December, and we would love for YOU to be a part of the fun.  If you enjoy singing, please join us on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 until 8:30—we truly have a wonderful time!  Call David Glaze (773-4547) with questions or for more information.

FRED TALK BY NANCY ROREX ON OCTOBER 15:  On the third Sunday of the month, Trinity’s adults gather at 9:15am in the Fellowship Hall for the next installment in our series of FRED Talks (Faith, Religion, Education & Discussion).  Our October speaker is Trinity member Nancy Rorex.  She has a very interesting career feeding all the famous celebrities who perform at Verizon Arena, but much closer to her heart is the work she does as a mental health worker and hospice chaplain.  This is what she will be drawing on in her FRED Talk, “How Did I Get Here from There? A Spiritual Journey.”  She will invite us to think about where we are in our lives, how we got here and where we want to go from here.  Please join us on October 15 in the Fellowship Hall.  The talk will run from 9:15 to 10:15, but come at 9:00 to enjoy coffee, breakfast foods and some good old-fashioned fellowship.

A CONGREGATIONAL MEETING has been called for Sunday, October 15 at the end of the worship service for the purpose of electing officers.

CHURCH WORK DAY after worship on Sunday, October 22.  A grilled hot dog lunch will be provided.  Join us to help with some yard work, minor repairs, painting, and cleaning.  Bring your work clothes!    Sign up on the poster in the Narthex if you plan to help.  Direct questions to elder Becky Morin at 479-640-6894.

TRINITY CELEBRATES 30 YEARS with special events on October 28 and 29.  Please join us on Saturday, October 28 from 5:00-7:00pm in Gearing Fellowship Hall for a reception honoring charter members, former members and members who have joined in the last 12 months.  On Sunday, October 29 at 10:30am we will have a special worship service celebrating our diverse Presbyterian heritage with bagpipes, special music, a Litany of Remembrance, and a Kirkin’ o’ The Tartans featuring Trinity’s new tartan.  After worship we will share a gourmet luncheon together in Gearing Hall. 

KIRKIN’ O’ THE TARTANS ON OCTOBER 29:  On October 29, Trinity will celebrate our 30th anniversary and our diverse Presbyterian heritage with a Kirkin’ o’ The Tartans during worship.  Please bring to worship a small piece of cloth or small token that reminds you of your heritage.  Tradition would suggest a piece of your family tartan, but if that doesn’t fit your background, find something that will.  Anything that reflects your family would be appropriate.  In the past, items brought to be blessed have included a family Bible, christening gown, and photos.  During the service, you will be instructed to bring your items up and place them on the table.  A prayer will be said recognizing the importance of our many heritages.  After the service, you may retrieve your item.

LITANY OF REMEMBRANCE:  We will celebrate Trinity’s 30th anniversary on October 29 in the morning worship service, a date which coincides with All Saints Day.  A special element of the liturgy that day will be the Commemoration of All The Faithful Departed. We will remember those beloved members of our church family who have died during the past year—November 2016 until now.  Names of departed members and the family of members will be listed in the bulletin.  If you would like to add your family members to be remembered to this list, please email their names to Julie Peak in the church office at TrinityPresLR@gmail.com.

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 TrinityPresLR@gmail.com by 5:00pm Tuesday for inclusion in the email update and bulletin.
