April 2017         

A Foretaste of the Kingdom                        

From the pastor: 

       A few months back, our music director Andy Welchel asked to step down from his directing duties to concentrate on singing and playing keyboard -- and sax and accordion and bass and every other instrument in his repertoire.    
         We now welcome aboard Sammy Dotson, who will begin as our music director on April 9.
       Sammy is a well-known figure on Greenville's music scene. He's director of the much heralded Phillis Wheatley Dwight Woods Repertory Theater, which recently staged its popular Motown show at the TD Convention Center. He also teaches theater at Legacy Charter School.
      We are absolutely thrilled that Sammy is joining us. 
      We hope you will visit this spring to hear as he leads our Voices of Mercy and the various ensembles and soloists and bands that make up Triune's music ministry. We will offer two services on Easter Sunday -- at 9 and 11 AM.
         If you haven't visited us before, come and worship among people of differing socioeconomic levels, races, educational levels and mental abilities.  
           As everyone tells us, This must be what the kingdom of God looks like. 

                                                       * * * * * * * *
        We have added an Al-Anon group to our recovery options. If you have a family member or a friend with a drinking problem, you are welcome to join us at 6:30 PM on Wednesday nights on the third floor of the fellowship building for the Triune Al-Anon Family Group.

                                                         * * * * * * * *  

          Volunteer opportunity: 
We have meal openings for selected Sunday lunches throughout the year and one Saturday lunch in September. A Triune meal involves buying the groceries, cooking and serving. 
        If this is something your Sunday school class or mission circle or group of friends would like to do, call our volunteer coordinator Linda Hanna at 233-8020, ext. 120, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   .
