Announcements

Sunday- May 22

Congregational Potluck Brunch TODAY During the Sunday School Hour:  We are honoring Corrie Cloninger and Oluseun Orija, our two high school graduates this year. We hope you will join us in celebrating their accomplishments and wishing them all the best in their future endeavors!

 

Memorial service for Bill and Betty Williams TODAY at 2pm at the Warlick YMCA outdoor chapel. Bill and Betty both died at times when it was difficult to gather due to Covid, so they had only graveside services. Disciples of Holy Trinity are warmly invited to attend this memorial.

 

June Herald Articles are due today. Please email your articles to Anita Stiles. Thank you!

 

Intergeneration Opportunity:  Our Youth and Children’s Committee recently discussed how good it would be to have our own adults in the nursery along with one of our youth. This will be a fun way for you to get to know our youngest disciples (currently we only have 1-2 children in the nursery each week) as well as our awesome youth members. The goal is to have so many people serve that each person only gets to serve about once every 2 – 3 months.  If you are interested, please let Amy East, Carla Oakes, or Cody Carpenter know. We will plan to provide nursery at 8:30 initially, and expand to 11:00 as the need arises. The rotation will be starting in June, and it’s never too late to get on board!

 

May is a 5-Sunday USO month! A table is set up in the PLC hallway for donations. The USO serves active and retired military and their families traveling through our Charlotte airport. Last month, they helped over 12,000 service members!  The USO is thankful for all of our donations, and is currently especially in need of bottled waters, individual snacks and gluten free snacks.  Please contact Gary or Charlene Linsenmayer for additional information on this ministry.

 

Blood Drive:  Don't "waffle" about your decision! Give blood at Holy Trinity’s Blood Drive on Monday June 27 from 3pm-7:30pm.  Please contact either John or Charlotte Sautner at 2sautners@gmail.com or 704-860-3399 to schedule a donation time, or sign up online via the Red Cross website. We look forward to seeing you then. Masks will not be required.

 

This week’s birthdays:  Amanda Godwin, Clay Mathews, John Niemeyer, Peyton Scot (5/23), Marie Ferguson, Katie Peak (5/29), Pepie Jones (5/31).  Birthday blessings and love to you all!
