Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Annual Conference
Each year an equal number of clergy members and lay members attend their conference's annual conference session for worship, fellowship, and to conduct the business of the conference. These sessions include reports of past and ongoing work; adoption of future goals, programs and budgets; ordination of clergy members as deacons and elders; and election of delegates to Jurisdictional and General Conferences (every 4 years). The bishop presides over these meetings. Our Annual Conference (the Florida Conference) will be June 8 - 10 in Orlando. If you would like to stay informed, you have 2 great options:
  1. Follow (or participate!) using #flumc2017 on Twitter
  2. The laity session and all plenary sessions will be webcast live.  A link to the webcast can be accessed at here. Webcasts will include worship services, including the Holy Communion and ordination services.
Mission Box 
This week's Mission Box will support the VBS mission of building a roof for a Habitat House for a needy family. The kids at VBS this week are doing their part to collect funds with a goal of $1,200. Let's join them and see how many roofs Trinity can build right here in Gainesville! (text 2 give keyword: habitat)  
Accept the Challenge - Prayer in the Chapel
In the sermon on Sunday, Catherine challenged the congregation of Trinity to be in prayer daily for the church.  She also challenged you to join her every Tuesday late afternoon in the Trinity Chapel.  It will be a time to sit together in silent prayer listening for God's direction and praying for our church.  Catherine will be there on Tuesdays from 5-6pm beginning today and continuing throughout the summer.  During that hour, you are welcome to come and go as you need to and to come any week you are able.  Let's stick together and pray as we are "united in our devotion to prayer." 
"An Unexpected Journey" 
Sometimes life throws us a curve ball even when we think we have it all mapped out. Sometimes things just don't go the way we had planned. That's what happens again and again for the heroes of our faith in the Book of Genesis. For Noah, Abram, Jacob and Esau, and Joseph the journey is not always what they would have anticipated, yet through it all God seems to make a way. Join us for these summer Sundays (June 25 - August 6) to see what message God might have for you as you seek to make sense of your life's unexpected journey.
Gainesville Sonlight Tour!
Yes, we're still going to Jamaica - but we have a Gainesville tour as well! Please come support Sonlight at any (or all!) of these local concerts:
  • Send-off concert on Sunday, June 11 from 7-8pm in the Worship Center
  • Faith Mission concert on Monday, June 12 from 7-8pm (3701 NE 15th St.)
  • Depot Park concert on Tuesday, June 13 from 7-8pm (200 SE Depot Ave.)
Summer Sunday Lunches
From June 25-August 6, you're invited to join us for lunch after worship on Sundays at noon. What could be more convenient than having lunch right next door in the Worship Center B side! And what could be more delicious than Franny Long's meals (she's Trinity's awesome chef)! In coordination with our Month of Missions, Summer Sunday lunches will be served family style at the tables and prices will be the same as dinners during the school year ($7 for adults, $3 for kids age 6 and up, and a family cap of $25). No reservations are necessary, just come and enjoy the food and fellowship. And be sure to invite a friend, neighbor or co-worker to worship with you and join you for lunch. We'll have our own kind of BOGO...first time guests of Trinity eat free!
Children's Ministry
July 2 is our next Baptism Sunday. Baptism is a wonderful celebration of God's grace and is available to persons of all ages who have never experienced it previously. If you or a member of your family would like to be baptized on this day, please contact Shannon Rosselle ( 352-416-3005). She will be happy to work with you in scheduling an appointment with one of the pastors as well as providing important additional information about this special day.   

Thank you for your donations, preparations, set-up help, support and prayers for VBS!  This week, over 400 children, youth and adults are discovering our strength in God.  Please continue to pray for all involved in VBS as we take this wonderful faith journey together.

Wouldn't you love to make a difference in the life of a child? Serve with our Children's Ministries Team June 11 - August 6! Summer is a great time to get involved with the Children's Ministries Team by playing a part in helping children grow in their faith. No experience or preparation needed - just be ready to have some fun! Here's how you can help: Give our regular 9:40 or 11am leaders some time off and volunteer a couple of times this summer. You pick the age: 2 year olds - 5th grade. Sign up in Sunday School classrooms or email Brian.
Stephen Ministers
Stephen Ministers are laypeople (Christian men and women) trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment. Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commonality? A passion for bringing Christ's love and care to people during a time of need. A Stephen Minister begins a caring relationship when he or she is matched with a person experiencing a life crisis. The Stephen Minister then meets with that person on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. The caring relationship lasts as long as the person is in need of care. For more information, contact Lenora Rousseau (352-416-3033).
Month of Missions
Trinity is committed to making a difference in the world and you'll have the opportunity to help us do just that by participating in a " Month of Missions." Each week from June 25-August 6 (so, yes, it's a little more than a month), we invite you to do something hands on for missions. We'll start with a food packaging event on Sunday, June 25 at noon (along with lunch). This is a fun event for all ages filling bags with dried food to fight hunger in areas that are most in need. Don't worry, no special skills are needed!
 
The following six Sundays, you're invited each week to bring items to meet a specific need from men's flip flops to diapers to school supplies. After worship this week, pick up your refrigerator magnet with the "Summer Sundays" reminder card listing the Mission Box, the Mission Donation/Focus and the Summer Sunday lunch menus. It's gonna be a great summer!
Pulse Anniversary Prayer Vigil
Come join us anytime between 8 - 9pm in the Chapel on June 13 for reflective prayer, candle lighting, and remembering all those who were impacted by this tragedy one year ago. For more information, contact Lenora Rousseau (352-416-3033).
