Claws for a Cause! May 20, 2018
Dear Trinity Church members,

Sarah Lindsey Laukhuff, Claws for a Cause co-chair, and I are excited about our 4 th Claws for a Cause that is quickly approaching on Pentecost Sunday, May 20 th . We will be blocking off South Commerce for the afternoon and evening of Sunday, May 20 to enjoy delicious lobster, great barbecue chicken, hamburgers, games for the kids and live music featuring The Pine Belt Pickers from Hattiesburg. We’ll be flying the lobster in from Maine and cooking them from 5:00 until 8:00 pm.
All proceeds will be evenly split between two ministries: Natchez Stewpot and The Damascus Endowment. Natchez Stewpot serves hundreds of meals each day to those in need in our community, and The Damascus Endowment provides scholarships for special needs individuals to attend Camp Bratton-Green. Our diocesan camp has touched the lives of many special needs campers with two, week-long sessions each summer and has also provided opportunities for generations of counselors to learn servant ministry.
Ticket packets will be available and distributed at the church on Sunday, April 15 but you can also encourage friends and family to purchase tickets by calling 601-445-8432 or, after April 15, at www.trinitynatchez.org/claws-for-a-cause
We need your help in pulling off this great event! Please sign up for a work shift with Lee Carby (601) 334-6224; Sarah Lindsey Laukhuff (601) 818-4862; or Betty Jo Harris (318-336-3323).

A Prayer For This Week

Jesus, Holy One of God,
You embodied love for us.
Jesus, Holy One of God,
You accepted love from all who offered.
Jesus, Holy One of God,
We acknowledge our need for your love.
Teach us, we pray:
The courage to both give and receive love,
the humility to admit when we have not loved well,
and the faith to trust that your love is enough.
