January 20 TRINITY CONCERT SERIES: We welcome Johnny Ross and The Ross Family for a lively afternoon of entertainment. The group is comprised of Danielle Ross on fiddle, Stephanie Ross on guitar — both of whom also sing and step dance — and Johnny Ross, who plays piano and serves as emcee. Having performed together since childhood, the talented siblings have evolved into an exciting act, presenting roots-traditional music with an emphasis on showmanship and fun. Every summer they entertain audiences at the Ross Family Ceilidh, a frequently sold-out event now located at Clinton Hills. You can expect to hear toe-tapping fiddle medleys, as well as novelty tunes interspersed with step dancing and upbeat piano sets. The concert will also feature vocal covers ranging from Stan Rogers to Jerry Lee Lewis, the latter displaying wild, foot-on-the-piano playing and creative use of a hula hoop. “It’s always a crowd-pleaser when Danielle demonstrates her prowess with the hula hoop. She’s been doing trick fiddling with it for years, but now she also stepdances while balancing the spinning hoop around her waist. It’s a hit,” said Johnny. Keeping true to its name, the show is a family affair. Dorothy Ross, mother of the band members, will be featured as a guest stepdancer. Dorothy is also known for her role in The Arsenault Sisters trio from Wellington. Doors will open at 1:15 for showtime at 2:00. Admission at the door is $12.00 or you can purchase advance tickets by contacting the church office at 902 436 3155 or Wendell at 902 436 8600. Bring along a little extra pocket change to buy some of Trinity’s amazing fudge. Trinity United is fully wheelchair accessible for those with mobility challenges. Trinity United is located at 90 Spring Street in Summerside. Everyone is welcome.

SUNDAY SLIDES: We are currently in search of an additional person to help run the slides in church each week.  The commitment is minimal, every 5th week you are responsible for putting together the slides for the Sunday service. We use custom made software and it is very easy and fun to use.  A very basic knowledge of computers is all that is needed.  If interested, please contact the church office or email Stephen Gaudet at stephen.gaudet@gmail.com Stephen will be happy to give you a demo of how it all works.  Thanks!

MEN’S BREAKFAST:  Trinity Men’s Breakfast group meets again in September. Thanks to the group for their generous donations of turkeys for the Salvation army.

TRINITY CAFÉ: Trinity Café is a weekly Bible study and conversation time on Thursdays from 9:30-11:30am. No expertise or prior Bible knowledge is required, just a willingness to be open and a desire to explore the scripture with Rev. Bob Lockhart.  We welcome new participants at any time. Trinity café will resume January 10.

SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY:  Join Rev. Bob Lockhart each Sunday at 9:00am for an entertaining and enlightening hour of Bible study.  An in depth knowledge of the Bible is not needed, come and join the discussion. We welcome new members to our group at any time. January 6
