Announcements for the week of May 30

VBS is rapidly approaching (June 21-25), and we need your help in gathering galactic décor! Please see Debbie and Angel in the foyer after the service to see what items you might be able to donate or loan. We also are in need of musicians – please let us know if you are willing to help.


From Advent through Pentecost, we celebrate with joy and thanksgiving what Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have done to accomplish the salvation of sinful humanity. During the Season after Pentecost, we focus on how we respond to the love that God has shown us. Trinity Sunday is a transitional day that bridges these two parts of the liturgical year. This is the solemn day on which we praise and adore God both for what He has done for the world and for who He is. As confessed in the Athanasian Creed:

We worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity,
Neither confusing the persons nor dividing the substance.
For the Father is one person, the Son is another, and the Holy Spirit is another.
But the Godhead of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit is one:
the glory equal, the majesty coeternal.

The liturgical color for Trinity Sunday is white. White represents the holiness and perfection of God.
