JUNE ACTIVITY OPPORTUNITIES
Wednesday, June 8 – Sunday, June 12
Living Beyond is Trinity’s project to assist those in the community who are unable to do minor repairs or yard work around their houses because of health or financial reasons. Each evening will begin at 5:00 with a light supper and devotions before teams go out to paint, rake, trim, etc. until dark. Saturday morning will be devoted to finishing up projects. A celebration luncheon will be held on Sunday when the teams will report on their week’s work.
Trinity members and members of the New Holland community are invited to assist with this project. Some jobs are less strenuous than others. In addition, there will be a group working on comforters for Lutheran World Relief. Please sign up for any evening you are available at church or call the church office at 354-4976 to register for supper and your evening of availability.
Vacation Bible School
Sunday, June 26 through Thursday, June 30th
This year’s VBS theme is Noah’s Ark and God’s Promise which is open for all Trinity and community children ages 3 to 12 years old. This theme promises to be another exciting VBS adventure. A hand-made replica of the ark will be the centerpiece of the week. One evening will feature a retired biology teacher who will bring his bugs, snakes, turtles, and some animals. Stories will be told inside a mock ark with an ark façade designed by a retired art teacher. VBS students will be making a banner depicting their learning experience. In addition to nightly snacks, one night will be a “Make-Your-Own-Sundae-Night!”
We are blessed to have many willing adults to help with VBS. We also have Trinity’s Sunday School kids making giant animals for decorations. It sure sounds like a great learning experience, doesn’t it?
Trinity’s VBS is open to all children in the New Holland community who will learn and share the Good News about God’s love and promise to all of us. There will also be a Bible study class for adults conducted by Pastor Whitesel. Please call the church office to pre-register your children. Each evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m.
At Trinity New Holland we strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our Church is the thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Trinity Lutheran Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for worship. Trinity Lutheran Church in New Holland, PA meets every Sunday for worship and study at 221 East Main Street, New Holland.

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
