In the wake of the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is joining the international community in mobilizing resources and raising support. If you would like to make a contribution, please make checks payable to Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church with ‘disaster relief’ in the memo line. Funds will be sent to the front line of our denomination’s relief efforts, and out of chaos, your gift will bring hope.

Special offering for the month of May is 2015 Mother’s Day/Father’s Day Offering. Donations support The Benevolence Fund of the Presbyterian Retirement Homes – Glenaire in Cary; Scotia Village in Laurinburg; River Landing in Colfax. Checks should be made to TAPC with “Mother’s Day offering” in the memo line.

Y-TAP: Today is our spring youth and family hike! We’ll gather in or outside the narthex after the 11am service before departing, led by Bert Wolf. Youth should bring a packed lunch, water, and hiking garb. Siblings and parents are welcome!

Please join Primetimers for our Annual Picnic at Forest Hills Park on May 21st. We will welcome Carl Badger who will enlighten us about Traditional Fiddle music. We will learn about its background, how it differs from Bluegrass music and how he became involved with this traditional music of the south. We will also welcome Reverend Steve Brown, Carl’s bandmate in the Bluegrass band “Muletown”. Reverend Brown is the pastor of the Eden Baptist Church. The festivities will begin at 11:00 followed by lunch, which will be provided by the wonderful Lisa Drummond. Please reserve your space by calling the church office or by signing the Friendship Pad.
