Good Lord we at Holy Trinity are busy this month!  Here are some upcoming events:

First up is our SUPERBOWL PARTY!  

This Sunday February 5th from 6-9pm. Watch the Super Bowl in a family-friendly gathering in the Parish Hall, featuring good eats and a big-screen TV. Bring lawn chairs (think tailgate party) or sit at the tables and chairs already provided. Bring an appetizer or desert to share. Prizes will be offered for the tastiest appetizer and desert. There will children’s activities to occupy the very youngest. Invite a friend, coworker, neighbor, or family members. Tickets are $3 per person (age 12 and under are free) and will be available beginning on Sunday, January 22.

Be there or be square!

Next up … We have Chili Church TWICE this month!

Wednesday, February 8 and February 22nd from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

All are warmly invited to “Chili Church,” an informal time of prayer and discussion of the Bible over a home-cooked meal. Chili Church is modelled on Holy Trinity’s popular summer program “Burger Church,” which gathered people from many churches and cultures. On the menu for Chili Church: homemade chili, mac’n’cheese, plain rice, and corn bread. The chili will be flavorful but mild — bring your own hot sauce to share. Chili Church is a multi-generational program – it’s good for young and old. Please tell a friend or neighbor about Chili Church (which also will be offered on Feb. 22).

and finally…

Pizza Church on Wednesday, February 15 at 6:30 PM – 8 PM
