Easter Lilies
The flowers that make Trinity especially beautiful during Easter worship are provided by members of our Trinity family who wish to remember loved ones, or simply express special thanks to God. The names of contributors and people remembered will be published the first weekend after Easter. Sign up forms are in the Narthex - return to offering plate or church office. (Suggested donation of $12 each)

Thank you - from the PTL of Trinity Lutheran School
We just wanted to send out a thanks and our warmest appreciation to all of our Church volunteers, School volunteers and Trinity Staff members who helped make this annual Touch-a-Truck event a success. We certainly could not have had such a successful event without all of YOUR support! The smiling faces, honking horns and squeals of delight were proof that all the time and effort you put in was loved! Children and parents enjoyed the event and all we offered!  In addition to raising over $4,500 for Trinity's PTL for the benefit of Trinity Lutheran School, we also were able to connect with many families in the Central Florida area and let them know what Trinity Downtown is all about. We look forward to many more successful events where we can bring our Church, School and Community together.  Thank you again!

"Walk With Jesus" Easter Experience 2018
Register now!   Forms are in the Narthex.
Coming to Trinity Saturday, March 24, 2018, 9am to 11:30am, is "Walk with Jesus" - a powerfully moving, multi-station, multi-sensory event that guides you through Jesus' last days on earth. You will travel to Jerusalem for Palm Sunday, sit down for the Last Supper, discover the sacrifice of Good Friday and visit the empty tomb that very first Easter morning. Appropriate for all ages and designed for parents and children to experience together.

Sign up to Volunteer! STUDENTS (MS and up) are welcome to serve too!
Organized by Trinity's volunteer Outreach Ministry Team, this is an opportunity for the whole congregation to participate in sharing the true meaning of Easter with Trinity families and guests from the community! The third and final pre-planning meeting is scheduled for March 11th in the first loggia room at 12:30pm.

Supply Help
THANK YOU for taking the palm leaves off the supply sponsorship PALM tree in the Narthex!  Each event station this year will have beautiful scenery and experiential components which require lots of extra supplies - your support has made a HUGE difference!

Blankets: We need neutral color blankets for the stations. They will be returned. Pin your name to the back of the blanket.

Let's show some love! Take Them a Meal
Trinity teen Zach M. has had heart surgery and is homebound to stay away from flu germs as he recovers.  During this time, in the midst of lots of doctors appointments and extra bills to pay, we'd love to rally the Trinity family to help out with meals to show a little love and care to the family - a family of four. We've set up a "Take them a Meal" site to allow for scheduling of meal drop offs and even the option to have something in their area delivered to them. Please note:  Zach has a severe nut allergy (no nuts or nut oils in the food please). The link to sign up is https://www.TakeThemAMeal.com/TNDD3627 . Thank you for participating as you are able!
