What: Seeking membership or just wanting to know more about HTAC?  Pastor Matt has scheduled a membership/discovery class for April 30 (Sun) 1 pm to 4 pm.  This class, along with meeting the other membership requirements allows, but does not require, you to sign a Membership Covenant.

 

So seeking membership or not, this is an excellent class for learning more about HTAC and is highly recommended for both non-members and new attendees, along with those wanting to qualify for voting in the annual meeting in January each year.

 

What To Do Next:  Please RSVP with Church Assistant at holytrinityac@gmail.com or signup in the Fellowship Hall.  If you want to attend but the scheduled date/time does not work for you, please discuss it with Pastor Matt.

Pillar Institute Class: “The Big Dig: Enabling the Panama Canal” – Wed 5/3 at 9:30-11:30 am in the Fellowship hall – Free for HTAC members!

 

What: Learn how the building of the Panama Canal impacted travel, health care, and world history. This class discusses the fascinating story (of drama, intrigue and science) of one of the greatest engineering feats of all time and how a U.S. Army doctor conquered the lowly mosquito, which enabled the completion of an idea that had begun over 40 years earlier. The creation of the Panama Canal is a magnificent story of tragedy and conquest that represents a feat of American “can do” spirit.

 

Instructor: Dr Michael LeMay / Cost: Free for HTAC members, otherwise $20 for Pillar members and $35 for non-members

 

What to do Next: Come learn the story of the efforts and triumphs that went into the Panama Canal! Wednesday, May 3, from 9:30 to 11:30 am at HTAC.

Blessing Bags for the homeless

 

What: The Outreach Committee, with help from the women’s Bible study, used your generous donations to stuff about 50 bags with useful items for the homeless. The bags are available to distribute as you see need – this is a wonderful alternative to handing out money, which can be used poorly. The bags are filled with items like soap, socks, deodorant, etc., which provide for practical needs.

 

What to do Next: Talk to Gerrie Harper for more information. There are bags available for distribution in the Fellowship Hall.

Holy Trinity choral quartet seeking pianist.

 

What: Did you enjoy the music at the Advent choral Evensongs? You can be a part of such things! The ensemble is looking to add an accompanist to play piano/”organ” for some of its pieces. Commitment would include weekday evening rehearsals weekly for most pieces.

 

What to do Next: For details or to set up an audition, email Brian Brown at bbrown@narratoronline.com.

Seeking pianists or other musicians to help lead hymns at Liberty Heights! Contact David Sachsenmaier for information

 

What: Holy Trinity holds services at the Liberty Heights community on Sunday mornings at 9:30 in addition to our services at the main building. Unfortunately, our pianist who currently accompanies the hymns at these services is not able to continue due to her health. We are therefore seeking pianists or other musicians who can accompany the hymns each week for the service. If we have enough volunteers, we may be able to establish a rotating schedule.

 

What to do Next: This is a great way to reach out to our LH family and help lead worship! If you or someone you know is interested in playing for a couple of hymns at some of these services, please contact David Sachsenmaier as soon as possible at dsachs@synterpoint.com or (719) 646-9690.
