  2. Summer Worship begins at 10 AM
  3. Looking for a Church Home?   Learn what it means to be a member of First Presbyterian. We offer members of all ages opportunities to join in fellowship and expand their faith experiences. Please email the Church Office.
  4. Meeting of the Congregation  The Session calls for a Special Meeting of the Congregation to take place on Sunday, July 9 immediately following Worship for the purpose of amending the Terms of Call for the Associate Pastor.
  5. TRENTON THUNDER - Join the whole church family for an evening of baseball! Friday, July 7th @ 7:00 p.m. It's superhero night (to get you ready for superhero VBS)! Order your tickets ($12) here. Caravan from the church parking lot at 5:30 p.m. or meet us at the ballpark. Deadline: June 28.
  6. Summer Bible Study  There will be a Bible Study led by the Rev. Suzanne Schafer-Coates (our Parish Associate and Meadow Lakes Minister) in the Church Library at 7:00 p.m. on five Monday nights this summer: July 10, 17, 24, 31 & August 7. The study is one of Adam Hamilton's. It's not a Bible Study, as such, although it is based on the Bible, and uses Biblical texts as we wrestle with the topics of the study. The study is called: "HALF TRUTHS, God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn't Say."

    The lessons are:
    1) Everything Happens for a Reason,
    2) God Helps Those Who Help Themselves,
    3) God Won't Give You More Than You Can Handle,
    4) God Said It, I Believe It, That Settles It,
    5) Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin.
    I look forward to you joining us. It will be fun!
  7. Youth Ministry

    Giving Wall - Support our Youth   The Youth Group has created a giving wall to support our summer youth mission trip and beyond! We invite you to check out the giving wall in the Fellowship Hall. Take an envelope off the board and return it to the church office with the amount of money indicated by the number on the envelope (or more) - every donation counts, from $1 - $150! In each envelope, you'll find a letter about our summer mission trip and a picture of a mission trip participant to pray for while we're away. Thank you for your generous support!

    Youth Mission Trip Our summer youth mission trip is to Crownpoint, New Mexico, from Saturday, July 29 to Sunday, August 6th. Crownpoint is on the Navajo Nation Reservation. This trip is organized through Next Step Ministries (http://www.nextstepministries.com/crownpoint-new-mexico-2/) and will offer students an opportunity to serve, learn, grow and worship alongside our neighbors in New Mexico.
  8. Lay Readers   We are looking for Lay Readers for July to December 2017.

  10. Skeet's Pantry JUNE is CEREAL MONTH for SKEET'S PANTRY!
    Yes, our pantry always needs a variety of food each month, but Cereal is in really short supply this month and our families are always eager for it - especially the families with children. So we ask all our very kind donors to consider giving one or more family size boxes of cereal this month. And, of course, if you'd like to donate other sorts of food as well, here's our list of all-time favorites:

    PEANUT BUTTER, PASTA (all varieties), CEREAL (not too much sugar, please), GRAPE JELLY, PASTA SAUCE, CANNED TUNA FISH, CANNED SOUP, CANNED FRUIT, CANNED BEANS (all varieties)

     Please drop items at the church office or in the wheel barrow outside the Sanctuary during church on Sunday. NO OUT-OF-DATE food can be accepted. Thank you.
  11. Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) The first Thursday of every month volunteers serve the evening meal at TASK. We leave the church in the church van at 2:30 p.m. and return by 5:30 p.m. It is a great way to serve God and others. No experience necessary, just a heart to serve. Please contact Anne Gordon or church office if you are up to the TASK!
