+ ANNOUNCEMENTS - April 11, 2021

THIS SUNDAY WE ARE BLESSED to welcome Rev. Dr. Bob Newton as our guest preacher.  Pastor Newton and his wife, Priscilla, are newcomers to our parish, having recently moved to our area from California.  The Newtons were missionaries for many years in Papua New Guinea, and before retiring Pastor Newton served as District President for the California-Nevada-Hawaii District of the LCMS.  We are fortunate to have the Newtons at Trinity and for Pastor Newton to bring us God’s Word this Sunday!

PASTOR TINETTI will be on vacation this week.  If you need pastoral care, please contact one of the elders (Chip May, Jack McKenna, Tom Dunn, Paul Scheppelman).

NEW STUDY OF PHILIPPIANS. Beginning April 18, Pastor will be starting a new study on the letter of Philippians entitled "Joyful Together." We'll see how this joyous letter of St. Paul to a church 2000 years ago illuminates the mission of Trinity Arcadia still today. Join us Sunday mornings at 10 in the sanctuary.

LEARN HOW TO JOIN JESUS ON HIS MISSION.  Pastor Greg Finke, author of the book “Joining Jesus on His Mission”, will be leading a weekend workshop here at Trinity Arcadia on Saturday, June 12th.  More details to come.  Save the date for this exciting workshop.

ECHO HIS LOVE FAMILY LIFE CENTER announces an ABC (Always Building Character) Self Improvement series.  These will be held Mondays starting June 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Benzonia, 901 Barber St, Benzonia.  There will be both adult and children classes.  Please call 231.723.6613 to reserve your spot today.  Registration is limited.

LIGHTHOUSE PREGNANCY CARE CENTER.  After much prayer, the board of Lighthouse Pregnancy Care Center has hired Sherry Curtiss and Sue Johnson for the positions of Client Services Manager and Office Manager, respectively.  LPCC has recently once again opened its doors to folks needing services, seeing them one at a time, masked, and socially distanced.  If you or anyone you know is pregnant or has young children and has a need of resources (clothes, baby food, diapers, wipes, equipment), or just needs someone to talk to, please have them give us a call at 231.398.7984.  We’d love to have a phone visit or have them come in!

SUMMER HELP.  Camp Arcadia is looking for college-aged summer staff. They are looking for fun-loving young people that want to work hard, challenge themselves to grow and develop, make new friends as they join an intentional Christian community. If you know of someone who might be interested have them contact Assistant Director, Jess, at jess@camp-arcadia.com or 989-928-5004. Also, to learn more go to camp-arcadia.com.

OUTDOOR BEAUTY.  We are looking for a couple of people that would be interested in coordinating the planting of flowers outside of the church this spring.  If you are interested in helping, please let pastor know, or email/call the church.

The ENDOWMENT COMMITTEE has sent out a mailing suggesting a couple of ways you can support this fund to enable Trinity to be a blessing for generations to come.  We ask for your prayerful consideration to this effort.

LORD’S SUPPER.  If anyone is unable or uncomfortable to gather for public worship, you needn’t forego receiving the “medicine of immortality”, the Lord’s Supper.  It would be Pastor’s pleasure and privilege to bring you the Sacrament, either in your home or at church.  Call him or email him to arrange a time.

FREE PANTRY.  Our free pantry continues to receive heavy traffic. Please consider bringing some non-perishables - either food or personal hygiene items.  You can leave them in the church kitchen, or fill the pantry box.

SUPPORT THE MISSION ONLINE.  Online giving is an easy way you can contribute on a one-time or recurring basis.  To give, go to our web page at trinityarcadiami.org, then click on the “Give” tab.
