This group is a collaborative effort between our two congregations in a sort of “pop up” choir. We are initiating the group this summer and hope to continue throughout the year. Anyone who wants to get together for a short practice before the first worship service is invited; come learn an easy piece of music and sing as a group for both worship services on July 21st. We hope to do this on a monthly basis and for special occasions.

SUNDAY TRANSPORTATION UPDATE
 
Trinity has been blessed to offer rides to Sunday worship at Trinity FREE of charge via Ampride Taxi and Tri Valley Bus for several years. 
 
Due to limited funds, Trinity’s Congregation Council has decided
to discontinue ride services with Ampride Taxi 
but will continue to pay for rides to worship with
the Tri Valley Bus Transportation system.
 
These changes became effective July 1st.

Knowing the Bible 101: A Guide to God’s Word in Plain Language
 
Let’s get together and explore our Bibles with this user-friendly guide written by Bruce Bickel & Stan Jantz. If you are new to Bible study or want to expand your knowledge, you will definitely benefit from this class!
 
“Bible 101” will meet from 6:00- 7:30 p.m. at Trinity on these Monday evenings:
June 3 & 17, July 1 & 15, August 5 & 19.

There are twelve chapters in the study guide, so we hope to cover two chapters each week. LuAnn Siekas is leader - she has taken this class and has offered it twice in two other congregations.
 
Call Trinity at 281-4276 by Thursday, May 23 if you plan to participate. We need to order books and prepare materials ahead of the first class. Cost for the book is $12.50.
