Summer Food 4 Kids is starting on May 31 here at Trinity Mennonite Church.  It will be in-person dining this year.  So, we need your help to sit with kids at the table and take an interest in their lives.  These kids need good male role models.  So men, if you have the noon-hour free, please sign up for one day during the week.  You even get a free meal!  We need 5 people per day.  Sign up at the back of the sanctuary.


OK, cookie bakers!  Rev up your ovens!  Dust off your recipes!  We need a variety of cookies for Summer Food 4 Kids.  Deliver them to the church any day from 10-3.  We need 150 every day!  Thanks again for your help!



Women’s Lunch  All women are invited to bring a carry-in meal on Sunday, June 5 at noon and then hear the life story of  Evalina Klassen.  How fascinating to learn to know someone in this way!  She will bring some of her handiwork to show you.

Men, you may join together for a meal at Pizza Hut.
