LENTEN BEER TASTING AT TRINITY ON MARCH 15:  We’re having a Lenten Beer Tasting with Ian Beard of Stone’s Throw Brewery on Thursday, March 15 from 6:00 to 8:00pm in the Fellowship Hall!  $10 per person includes beers paired with cheeses, meats and more.  There is limited seating, so sign up soon and pay in the church office or at www.trinitypreslr.com/event-registration/stones-throw-lenten-beer-tasting.  This event, sponsored by Trinity’s Education Division, was created to be both an educational/fellowship event as well as outreach to our community.  We want to bring new people through our doors, so sign up today to reserve your seat, and make sure you invite guests!  Direct questions to Julie Price at 501-626-6477 or julietannerprice@gmail.com.

TRINITY TO HOST A TEA AT PRESBYTERIAN VILLAGE on Monday, February 26 at 2:30pm.  This is a wonderful time when Trinity members provide a special afternoon gathering for Presbyterian Village residents.  If you would like to make something for the Tea, we are in need of items such as finger foods, cookies, small sandwiches, a fruit tray, etc.  Food should be brought to the dining room at the Village on Monday, February 26 between 2:00-2:15 for set up purposes, or you can drop off food items at Trinity on Sunday, February 25.  Please contact Nancy Howell, Board of Deacons chair, at 519-3281 if you have additional questions or would like to provide table decorations.

WOMEN’S RETREAT MARCH 9-11:  Sign up today for this year’s retreat that will take place March 9-11 at the Smiley and Griffin cabins on Greers Ferry Lake.  Join Trinity women and friends for a weekend of fun, fellowship and inspiration for only $55.  Activities will begin with supper Friday night and end with lunch on Sunday morning.  Half-hour massages are available at an additional cost of $45—RSVP to Julie Price by February 16.  Registration flyers are available on the round table in the Narthex.  Return your form and fee to the church office by Friday, March 2.  Direct questions to Julie Price at 501-626-6477.

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 LENTEN STUDY:  All women are invited to participate in a seven-week Lenten study using Holly W. Whitcomb’s book Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting.  The group meets in Room 6 at 10:00am each Wednesday for about an hour of discussion, sharing and prayer time.  Whitcomb says that “Waiting presents an enormous challenge.  We are impatient, I-can-fix-it kinds of people.  Yet if we can welcome waiting as a spiritual discipline – whether it’s ordinary waiting in traffic or crucial waiting for news – waiting will present its spiritual gifts,” such as patience, living in the present, compassion, and gratitude.  Everyone is welcome to the study, whether member or visitor.  Books are available on Amazon or let Julie Price (501-626-6477 or julietannerprice@gmail.com) know and she’ll order you one for $11.00.

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