Hebrews 10:24-25 "24 And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

Summer is a great time of the year. For children and youth summer means no school, for some adults it means the chance at taking a break from work and maybe doing shorter day trips to the beach and all the great places in the Bay Area. Because of all our travel and change in schedules we wanted to try and find a few ways for us as a church to stay connected this summer as encouraged by this scripture reading from Hebrews.

Here's what we came up with for summer 2017. 

1. On the last Sunday in June, July, and August we will have food served on the patio for an extended time of connecting. June, 25 will be root beer floats!

2. Children’s ministry is making Take Out Church envelopes that include; Car Games, Skittles Prayer, Bible readings to stay connected to our Sunday Sermons, Trip Talks, three addresses of folks to send a postcard to, and what I am most excited about inside the kit is Flat Jesus! These take home kits will help you stay engaged in the faith wherever you may be this summer.

3. We will have a social media campaign that we are calling #TrinityTogether. The Flat Jesus you get from the Take Out Church envelope can be colored and taken with you everywhere you go this summer. It’s super easy, see that picture of Pastor Kurt over there with Flat Jesus. If you take photos of you and Jesus we’d like you to share them with the church. You can email them to TrinityTogether@trinity-pres.org and we will include them in our weekly email blast and our Facebook page, you can upload them to a google photos folder, or you can use #TrinityTogether when you post your photos on Facebook or Instagram.

4. We'll have a summer wide Scavenger Hunt that will lead to a raffle with real prizes that we'll hand out at our Picnic in the Park on September 10, 2017.

*What's a Hashtag?

On social media a hashtag or the pound sign (#) turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organize content and track discussion topics based on those keywords. So, when you post #TrinityTogether on Facebook you will be able to see all the other public posts that have also used that hashtag.
