Geraniums - If you ordered geraniums, you make take them home following the Sunday 10:30 worship service this weekend.
Vacation Bible School will take place June 10 - 14 at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Registration and volunteer forms may be found on the table in the narthex and on the table outside the church office.
Vacation Bible School - We are asking for donations for our snack and meal. For our snack we need donations of boxes of chewy granola bars and for our meal, we need donations of small individual size bags of Fritos and Doritos (our meal is walking tacos). All donations need to be received by Sunday, June 3. Please place all donations in our Family Ministry Bins (by the church office and in the narthex). If you have any questions, please contact Angela McCoy. Thank you in advance for your donations!
Sunday School Registration - If you are planning on attending Sunday School for the 2018-2019 Sunday School year, please register no later than July 8. This will help with planning, purchasing curriculum, and updating information; we would appreciate all families who are planning on attending Sunday School to please register! Registration forms can be found on the table in the narthex and on the table by the church office. You can turn registration forms into Angela McCoy, the church office, or place in the folders next to the registration forms on the tables.
Junior Performance Group/Choir - On the Sunday School registration form, you will see a registration section for the Junior Performance Group/Choir. This is a new ministry that will start in the 2018-2019 School Year. This group will practice Sundays after the 10:30 a.m. worship service. We will do approximately four to five performances during the year. We will be doing a lot of singing, some voice exercises, and a little dancing and acting! Please be sure to complete a registration form if you are interested in joining this group! (Same registration form as Sunday School)
Egg cartons - Please save your styrofoam egg cartons only for the Salem Community Food Pantry. The pantry does not accept cardboard cartons.
Youth Service Project - The THUGs are collecting books for the Houston youth as a service project before this summer’s youth gathering in Houston. One in four children there aren’t meeting the minimum standards at grade three; two in five of their youth fail the reading and writing test required for graduation. If you are interested in helping with this project, please pick up a book list from the table in the narthex and purchase books from the list. The books will be collected until June 17. Please place the books in the boxes in the narthex and Education Building.
