Easter Egg Hunt – Donations Requested by April 15th

The annual Easter Egg Hunt will be held after the 10:00 a.m. service on Sunday, April 16th.  Candy or small toy filled eggs can be dropped off at the church. There is a small basket in the narthex just waiting to be filled. Our Youth Group will collect and hide the eggs. Our goal is to hide as many of the eggs as possible on Saturday, April 15th so that we are not frantically hopping around on Easter Sunday. If anyone would like to just donate eggs without candy or toys please do so. Our Youth Group will add the goodies for the little ones. If you have any questions please contact, Nancy Myers at 301-775-0249.

Holy Trinity Cemetery Spring Cleaning

The annual "Holy Trinity Cemetery Clean-Up" is planned for Saturday, April 1st, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Many busy hands will make short work of our clean-up effort so please come help with removal of fall/winter leaves and debris. You will find the historic site located behind the Princess Shopping Center in Eldersburg. You can park in the MD VIP parking lot at 1137 Liberty Road (Dr. Billet's office) and walk up the parking lot to the former Holy Trinity Church grounds. We hope you find time to join us.  Feel free to ask Butch Willard if any questions. Participation might count toward service hours.

Lenten Program for Sunday Adult Forum

Our program is titled “What Wondrous Love is This”, an exploration of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus using scripture and art as modes of interpretation.  Each week, we will watch a short video followed by commentary from the theologians at Emory University and end with time for discussion.  All are welcome!
