The Creation Care Team has created a brochure that I’ve attached to this email. It can be printed and brought to the store when you’re shopping for replacement LED bulbs. Read about the 10,000 LED Light Bulb Campaign and other Earth Day opportunities in today’s newsletter.

Holy Trinity’s new website is live! Lots of time and planning went into this (and it’s still being tweaked). Check it out when you have a chance:

Staff members have been asked to write about themselves, including information that isn’t available on our website. In today’s newsletter, Ann Schrooten provides stories from her past that you will all enjoy.

The Community Church Newsletter for April 4, 2021, is now available.

Kris Christians shares her personal Palm Sunday procession in today’s newsletter. It’s really moving.

You’ll also find the schedule for Holy Week. The Zoom link for the service on Maundy Thursday was sent Saturday to all who receive worship video links and updates from Ingrid. She will send the information again prior to Thursday’s service. If you do not receive emails with worship video links from Ingrid, and you would like to, contact me and I’ll add you to that list.

The worship staff has worked hard to create worship videos for Holy Week. I hope you all get a chance to worship with Holy Trinity throughout this most holy of weeks.

Today’s newsletter can be viewed here. At the annual meeting yesterday, the congregation passed the Stepping Out in Faith recommendations, which means we will be handing out money to 8 of our community partners. The first of the 8 are “showcased” in today’s newsletter. Because the organizations were listed in alphabetical order, today you can learn a bit about the American Indian Community Development Council.

You’ll see links to Pastor Angela on Good Morning, America, some opportunities to sign up/RSVP for events, and links to discussions and events from the past week. There’s a lot to keep you busy!
