Would you like to help host our weekly fellowship time? The Deacons provide refreshments after both the 9:00 and 11:00 worship services and need volunteers to keep the fellowship going weekly.  Hosts provide some simple snacks and set them out a few minutes before worship is over.  A sign-up sheet for hosts is on the ministry table in the narthex, where information about food and set-up needs is also available.  Please contact Jenny Peters (919-641-3807) with any questions, and thank you for your support as we strengthen our community of faith by making connections with one another!

TAPC member Chris Rosati invites you to the BIGG premiere.  On Saturday, August 3 at 4pm at the Carolina Theater, Chris and his non-profit, Inspire Media, will feature videos showcasing how eight students in the Triangle have dreamed up creative, bold, and uncommon ways to enhance the lives of others.  Free tickets to this family friendly, Hollywood-style event are available through Inspiremedianetwork.org. Chris, Anna, Logan, and Delaney appreciate your support and prayers as Chris continues to live bravely with ALS.

Calling all artists/crafters!  “Trinity Avenue Community Arts Festival:  Impacting Poverty in Our City” is scheduled for Saturday, September 27th.  If you are interested in being an Exhibitor, please pick up an application from the ministry table in the narthex or contact Susan Ferguson at sfergu4127@gmail.com

Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church, as part of its outreach program, helps to sponsor the Presbyterian Campus Ministry (PCM) program at Duke and at NCCU.  We have students from both schools visit Trinity Avenue for services and other events.  You have probably greeted these students at various times.  The students of the PCM group at Duke put together a video to say thanks for our support. Click here to watch. I hope you will take time to play it (it’s a couple minutes in length) — to get a sense for the programs that we are enabling and the young people we are supporting.  Thanks to the Outreach Committee and to all of you for your support of Presbyterian Campus Ministry.  Tom Hadzor, TAPC Representative to Duke PCM

If you would like to learn more about supporting the ministries of Trinity Avenue by transferring stock, or if you would like to make the transition to paying your pledge through online giving, please contact Tina Petrillo at the church office or at tpetrillo@trinityave.org. Thank you!

Are you up to date on your pledge?  As spring and summer schedules take us in many different directions, please do not forget that the ongoing work of the church needs your ongoing pledge support.  We are currently 10% under our expected income, due to pledges that have been committed but not yet paid between January-May.  If you find that you have missed a month or two in your pledge, there is always time to catch up!  Checks can be placed in the offering plate, paid online, or sent to Tina Petrillo in the Business Office at the church.  Thank you for making the ministries of TAPC possible all year-round with your support!
