You are Invited to Worship
This weekend we celebrate the Second Sunday after Pentecost.  A women's vocal trio will sing at both services on Sunday. All worship services will include Holy Communion.

Come and worship:
  • Saturday at 5:30 pm
  • Sunday at 8:30 and 10:00 am
  • Wednesday at 6:00 pm
Worship on Wednesdays
Wednesday Night Worship continues this summer at 6:00 pm. If you aren’t able to worship on a weekend, consider attending on Wednesday instead. The services are complete with Holy Communion and offer mid-week rest. They are a good complement to weekend worship.
Pastor Tim on Sabbatical
Pastor Tim will be on sabbatical from June 4 through September 3. This means he will be “on-leave” from his duties at HTLC, taking time to read, write, retreat, rest, and recharge so he can come back ready to begin another seven years! He will not be checking email or voice mail during that time. Pastor Pam will be leading the staff in his absence. We wish him well during his time of rest, study, and writing.
Family Promise Volunteers Needed
Every day families of all shapes and sizes live without something we all likely take for granted: A home. Family Promise of Greater Des Moines is part of a nationwide network of ministries dedicated to not just providing shelter, but solutions to the problem of homelessness, one family at a time. 
Volunteers are needed for Family Promise for our next host week, July 15-22. We need people to cook, drive the van, and serve as evening and overnight hosts. Please consider helping.  Sign up online or visit the Red Wall.
Juice Boxes Needed!
Love Lunches will be served at Holy Trinity on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the summer. Thank you to all who have volunteered to serve. We are now seeking donations of 100% juice boxes. Bring donations to the church office and label them for Love Lunch. Contact Karen Bush at 515-979-4333.

Vacation Bible School 2018
Vacation Bible School and Hands and Feet will be held July 9-13 this summer. Check out the table by the Red Wall for more information. We’ve put out a wish tree filled with items we’ll be needing for VBS. If you’d like to like to help us out, you can take a tag off the tree and return the item to the blue bin by June 10. Sign up to attend or to volunteer on the church website. 
Sign Up for Dessert for Eight
Join a  Dessert for Eight Group  and enjoy dessert at a restaurant with a group of members from HTLC. Each person is expected to pay for their own food at a restaurant. The important part of the gathering is to meet and connect with others. Your group will meet once a month for four months starting in June.  Sign up online  or in the Narthex  by May 31 .
