Club 45 will meet Sunday, January 20, at 11:15 am in Jamison Hall.

 

Trinity’s monthly Drop-In Grief Support Group continues to meet on the third Monday of the month, however, the meeting time has changed to 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.  During the winter, if the weather is bad, please call Randall Clingenpeel at 540-207-0600 to confirm the meeting.  Grieving shows up whether your loss occurred fairly recently or some time ago.  When you are experiencing grief, you may find it helpful to be with others who are trying to understand what they are going through.  Sharing can often lessen the sense of feeling alone.  Contact Randall for more information.

 

 

Red Door Fellowship:   Our Young Adult Missioner, The Rev. David Casey,  is hosting a barbecue lunch for the Red Door Fellowship at The House (820 College Avenue) on Saturday, January 26, at noon.  The RDF is the ministry for those in the 18-35+ cohort for Trinity, St. George’s, and Christ Lutheran.  This will be a time of fellowship and community building as we begin to discern short to medium term projects and activities such as service opportunities and group discussions.  Please RSVP to David at dcasey@vts.edu, 646-416-0218, or on the Red Door Fellowship’s Facebook page.   

 

Artists Needed for Recycled Art project!!  Our theme is Creation.  Our mural will consist of 3 canvases, 24” x 48” each, for a finished sized of approximately 72” x 48”.  If interested, please develop a design on 8.5” x 11” paper that can scale to the full size of the mural.  Designs should be more abstract than detailed, because the final product will utilize the bottle tops and fine detail may not be feasible.  Here is a link with some God and Me simple creation pictures that may be useful for inspiration https://www.praypub.org/Data/Sites/1/media/resource-library/god-me/lesson_1/god_me_creation.pdf.  Colors will be limited to the bottle tops we have collected (i.e., black, white, blue, orange, yellow, red, green – with varying shades of some). Please call Sam Burton (540-373-2996) if you want to examine the bottle tops.  Acrylic Paints have also been purchased for the project and will be made available to the winner, along with the canvases.  Submit all designs to Sam Burton or Mandy Anderson by Sunday, February 17, 2019.  A winner will be selected by Sunday, February 24th.  The winner will then have until March 13th (1st Wednesday in Lent) to complete the transfer of the drawing to the canvases (just the outline and color coding: for examples go to Foundation for Hospital Art activities http://www.hospitalart.org/).  The young people’s Lenten Series class will paint the canvases per the color coding.  Then, the Sunday School classes will complete the project by adding the bottle tops the congregation has been collecting (likely on April 14th, Palm Sunday).  Earth Day 2019 is April 22nd.  Once the project is completed, we will display at the church.
