FAMILY GARDEN FUN
Christians Caring for Creation Ministry cordially invites everyone to get involved in "Family Garden Fun." This is an on-going hands-on activity Sundays after church services in the church garden area. Come exchange gardening ideas and plants, take advantage of knowledgeable gardeners in our community, and encourage everyone, especially our children, to grow plants by showing them how much fun it can be. You may bring old clothes if you wish, but old shirts, gloves, and tools are available, as well as containers to take plants home.
The schedule of July Sunday events in the garden after services will be as follows:
July 28 --- Maintaining plants through deadheading and pruning, plant and idea exchange
Please join us and have fun in the garden!

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO HOLY TRINITY GAME SHOW
Saturday, August 17 from 7 to 9 pm, Presented by Your Parish Council
Come be a part of our “studio audience” and cheer your favorite players to victory as we look to crown champions in Family Feud, Pictionary, Holy Trinity’s Funniest Home Videos, and the Great Greek Bake-Off.
Are you more of a player than an observer? Fantastic – come on down! We will draw contestants for our Pictionary challenges from the audience, so come in your most attention-grabbing garb if you want to have your chance at fame, glory, and the title of CHAMPION. If art isn’t exactly your thing, don’t worry! Does your family have what it takes to win the Feud? Or perhaps you’ve got comedy gold on your phone? Maybe you’re the baker of the best cookies in the 9-1-9? We need you!
If interested in playing Family Feud or entering the Bake-Off, contact Leslie Dombalis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-274-8303. You can send your funniest videos, Tik Toks or Boomerangs to email@example.com. It’s sure to be a fun-filled time for all ages.
