Hi, Everyone:

This Sunday, April 22nd, is the 4th Sunday of Easter and Lutheran Loose Change Sunday.  The Gospel reading will be the one about Jesus being the Good Shepherd, so be prepared to sing every hymn that’s ever been written with the word “shepherd” in it.  There will be a Worship Committee Meeting after the second service at about 12:15 pm if you want to complain about it.

A big thank you to all who helped make the Spaghetti Feed such a rousing success (and there were way too many people to mention individually).  Was it my imagination, or was this the best one ever?! (or maybe I just had more wine than usual this year)

The HTLC Sunday School Helping Hands kids are back in action! Coming off the success of Palm Sunday, when they packed 80 bags of supplies for the homeless (kudos!), the Helping Hands kids will be planting flowers for memory care residents at Fremont Hills Assisted Living home on Mission Boulevard on Sunday, May 6, at 1:30 p.m.  If you’d like to come along, please talk to Marta Wicke or Kathy Miedema.

This year’s HTLC Yard Sale is coming up on June 2nd. Due to increased usage of Holland Hall by outside organizations, the drop-off schedule has been updated this year.  Starting Monday May 21st, smaller items (clothes, games, kitchenware, etc.) can be dropped off in the Youth Room at the end of Holland Hall. Then on Saturday, May 26th, all items (large or small) can be dropped off at Holland Hall. This day will also be the first day of set-up, sorting, pricing, etc. in Holland Hall for the Yard Sale the following week.  A more detailed volunteer schedule for Tuesday, May 29th – Fri, June 1st will be made available soon.  Please direct any questions, concerns, praises, bribes, instructions, and snacks to Erik Holland (or leave the snacks on my desk – I’ll make sure he gets them).

All you gardening types, don’t forget to contact Kate (510-552-3656 text or voice, email: mackater@comcast.net) if you are interested in being on a Landscaping Committee.  We need your talent and passion to help beautify and maintain our campus!

About half of the seats we’ve reserved are still available for the HTLC Day at the Ballpark on August 4th.  You don’t have to be an A’s fan to enjoy this outing – good food, friends to chat with, and fabulous fireworks are all part of the package (oh, yes – and there’s also a baseball game!).  Sign up for tickets now at the Media Table.  Tickets are $25.50 each (Payment, due in June, will confirm your tickets.).  Any questions, please ask Kathy Miedema (skoop32@yahoo.com).

See you in church!

Hi, Everyone:

The big news, of course, is the Spaghetti Feed on Saturday (tomorrow!) from 4 pm to 8 pm.  Make sure you’ve told everyone you know how much fun it is and that they should come.  We still have flyers in the narthex (if you feel like going door-to-door to annoy people individually), and there are plenty of opportunities to help out.  Setting up and decorating begins tomorrow at about 10 am, and cleaning up afterward is always appreciated.  Gift baskets are starting to accumulate in the Activity Room, but we could always use more.  There will be a silent auction, raffles, a kid’s zone, and photo booths with Italian backdrops!  Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids, wine & beer are extra.  Don’t miss it!

This Sunday is the 3rd Sunday of Easter, Fill the Food Barrel Sunday, and recover-from-the-Spaghetti-Feed Sunday.  Bring your sunglasses, as we have had new windows installed in the sanctuary, but won’t have the new blinds for a couple of weeks.  On the positive side, the whole neighborhood will be able to see that you attend church!  There is a lot less traffic noise now, and we have screens so we can open the windows without doubling our attendance with insects.  Thanks to Dave Barron for organizing it all.

The Daytimers’ Luncheon will take place this Tuesday, April 17, at 11:30 am after Bible Study. All are invited to this monthly event of food and fellowship.  The theme this month is “potluck” (wait, isn’t that the theme every month?).

HTLC Buildings and Grounds is forming a Landscaping Committee to assess the current condition of hardscape and infrastructure while building upon existing design. Most garden enthusiasts are arty doers that like to create and maintain areas that bring out the spirit in people and others of God’s creation. We need you! Please contact Kate if interested:  510-552-3656 text or voice, email: mackater@comcast.net.  If you want to learn more about sustainable gardening and have some fun, Kate recommends signing up for the May 6 Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour. It’s an annual East Bay event where homeowners and others open up their yards for people to come check them out. Gardening lectures, music, art, and plant sales are also available.  For more information and registration, check out https://www.bringingbackthenatives.net.

It’s not too early to think about summertime fun like the HTLC Day at the Ballpark! Join your friends from church for an Oakland A’s baseball game and fireworks. Sign up for tickets now at the Media Table.  We’re planning to tailgate before the game – a matchup between the A’s and the Detroit Tigers – at 6 pm on Saturday, Aug. 4. Afterward, we’ll stay for a fireworks show at the ballpark. Our group tickets are $25.50 each (includes handling fee). About half of the seats we’ve reserved are still available.  You don’t have to be an A’s fan to enjoy this outing – good food, friends to chat with, and fabulous fireworks are all part of the package. If this sounds like fun to you, please add your name to the sign-up sheet. (Payment, due in June, will confirm your tickets.)  Any questions, please ask Kathy Miedema (skoop32@yahoo.com).

If you can stand thinking about one more event, the annual HTLC Yard Sale will be coming up June 2nd, so start going through your stuff!

See you in church!

Hi, Everyone:

Tired from too much Easter?  I hope not, because the season of Easter lasts seven weeks!  (probably longer than that Easter Garden plant will last)  This Sunday is the 2nd Sunday of Easter.  There is a Council Meeting at 12:15 am in the Activity Room.  By the way, weren’t the Easter Garden and Flower Cross fabulous?  Thanks to Carmen, Meg, and all of their little helpers who scrambled on Saturday to make it happen.  And also thanks all to those who contributed plants – a 56.25% increase over last year’s Easter Garden sign-ups – great job!  (yes, I did the math – I was curious after I had to squeeze all those names into the bulletin!)

Tonight (Friday the 6th) is Game Night!  Join us in the Activity Room at about 6:30 for food and fun.  Feel free to bring any games or food that you like, or you can just bring yourself.  You can even bring your leftover Easter candy – I won’t mind (as long as it’s chocolate).

Tuesday Bible Study is back this week at 10 am in the Activity Room.  Vacation’s over!  Seriously, you should come if you can – there’s an awful lot of laughter wafting over to the office from there on Tuesdays.

The Spaghetti Feed is only a week away!  Time for a concerted effort to get the word out – invite everybody and distribute flyers everywhere.  Briana could use more donations of gift baskets gift cards, and prizes for the raffles and silent auction.  Everyone can help, even if it’s just to buy tickets and show up!  Remember, it’s not only a fundraiser for HTLC and Reneal, but also a fun community event for all to enjoy!  It’s on Saturday, April 14th from 4 pm to 8 pm.  Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids.  Pick up flyers at the Media Table.

Speaking of fun events, be sure to sign up at the Media Table for Holy Trinity’s Day at the Ballpark on August 4th.  There will be tailgating, fireworks, and even a game between the A’s and the Tigers (almost forgot about that last part).  Details are on the sign-up clipboard on the Media Table, or ask Kathy Miedema at skoop32@yahoo.com.

See you in church!

Hi, Everyone:

Today is Good Friday.  Tonight’s worship service is at 7 pm here at Holy Trinity.  Please enter and leave in silence as it a somber service.  Why is it called “good” when Jesus died on that day?  According to the Oxford English Dictionary (and most language experts agree), it comes from an antiquated use of the word good as meaning holy, as in “Holy Friday.”  (Sorry, those of you who hold to the theory that it comes from a corruption of “God’s Friday.”  That theory has been debunked on the internet as being “speculative etymology” – and as we all know the internet is never wrong!)

This Sunday, of course, is Easter Sunday!  Our services are at 8:45 am and 11 am as usual, with an Easter Breakfast in-between at about 10 am in Holland Hall.  The Easter Egg Hunt for the kids (and only the kids, alas!) starts at 10:30 am on the patio.  The 11 am service will be extra celebratory as it will include the welcoming of the Roper family as new members, and the baptism of Jennifer and Christopher’s children: Alexander, Hailey, and Zoey!

Thanks to all who are contributing plants to the Easter Garden.  Please remember to drop off your plants by 10 am Saturday.  Be sure you put a craft stick (provided) with your name on it in the plant so that you’ll be able to recognize it when you pick it up after the 11 am service (it may be gussied up beyond recognition).

Last week the Sunday School Helping Hands kids created 80 bags for the homeless, filled  with food and goodies to be delivered to Abode Services (the people for whom we used to make sandwiches). Thanks to all the Sunday School kids and parents for this wonderful outreach. You inspire us all!

The church office will be closed on Monday, April 2nd.  It might be wise to call before coming over this week as Pastor Tim and I may be bar hopping keeping unusual hours.

Tuesday Bible Study is still on Spring Break this week and will resume on April 10th.

Game Night, though, will happen as usual on Friday, April 6th at 6:30 pm (probably because there’s food involved).

Thrivent Choice Dollars are expiring tomorrow, March 31st!  All you Thrivent members please don’t let all that free money evaporate into nothingness when it could go to help HTLC!

Once Easter is over, it’s time to really concentrate on the Spaghetti Feed.  It’s only two weeks away!  Buy tickets, invite friends, (or make new friends and then invite them), distribute flyers anywhere you can (available on the media table), and donate gift cards and gift baskets (use your creativity!). In other words, let’s all do what we can to make this year’s Spaghetti Feed more fun and successful than ever!  It’s on Saturday, April 14th from 4 pm to 8 pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids age 3 to 11. There’ll be an abbondanza of food, a silent auction, raffles, a kid’s zone, and all sorts of shenanigans. A portion of the proceeds will go to support Reneal International Education Outreach (www.reneal.org).

Happy Easter!  See you in church!

Hi, Everyone:

This Sunday, March 25th, is Palm Sunday and Lutheran Loose Change Sunday.  At the 8:45 am service, we will meet on the patio and process in with palms.  At both services we will hear from characters who were in Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday.  The Seder Meal will be at 5 pm in Holland Hall with all the food, ritual, and fun that it entails.  We will be using a new script this year (so new I haven’t even finished typing it up yet!), with the aim of making it less confusing and more meaningful for us.  Here’s a link to a matzah recipe if you’d like to provide some homemade matzah for the meal: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/213682/matzah/

Tonight (Friday the 23rd) there will be a sign-making session at 7 pm in the Activity Room for the March For Our Lives on Saturday in Oakland.  Details for the HTLC contingent participation were sent out yesterday by email, or you can call Kate at 510-552-3656, in case you threw away the email without reading it just because it came from me (shame on you – my emails are meant for posterity!).

For those not going to the march, we are having another Church Clean-up Day on Saturday (tomorrow) starting at 9 am.  There will be food, cleaning supplies, and camaraderie.  You supply the elbow grease.  For those of you who signed up to read for Palm Sunday services, there will also be a rehearsal at the same time (now you wish you’d volunteered to read to get out of cleaning –  well, you can go to the march as an excuse instead!).

Maundy Thursday worship service will be at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1301 Mowry Ave, Fremont, with the rest of the local ELCA congregations.  There’s a soup potluck at 6 pm.  Meet new people and taste new soups!

Good Friday worship service will be back here again at HTLC at 7 pm.  Meditative Taizé music and a solemn atmosphere make for a very moving experience.  Please enter and leave in silence.

And then, of course, there’s Easter Sunday.  Worship is at the usual times:  8:45 am and 11 am.  Breakfast will be served between the services (at about 10 am) with an Easter Egg Hunt at 10:30 for the kids (when do we get one for us immature adults?).

Tuesday Bible Study will be on Spring Break for the next two weeks and will resume on April 10th.  Go to all of the Holy Week services instead as independent study (Maundy Thursday counts as a field trip!).

This Sunday is the last day to sign up at the Media Table for the Easter Garden and still have the honoree’s name appear in the bulletin.  Please print legibly to help ensure correct spelling (apologies for last week’s misspelling “Moth-hair Teresa.”  I meant to put Mother Tourista, patron saint of travelers). Just purchase the plant –  any kind, size or color is welcome, and make sure it’s at the church by 10 am on Saturday, Mar 31st.

Thrivent Choice Dollars are expiring March 31st!  All you Thrivent members please don’t let them expire and go to waste – designate them for Holy Trinity and let us waste them for you!

The Spaghetti Feed will be here April 14th (only two weeks after Easter!).  Tickets are on sale between services.  Start getting together those donations of gift cards and prize baskets for the raffle and silent auction.  Pick up flyers from the Usher’s Table to post anywhere that will let you, and to hand out to all your friends, acquaintances, and perfect strangers!

Well, back to Seder Meal typing – will it be done in time, or will it end with “Next year in Jerusa…?”

See you in church!

Hi, Everyone:

This Sunday, March 18th, is the 5th Sunday of Lent and Fill the Food Barrel Sunday.

Tonight (Friday the 16th) is Family Movie Night!  Yes, it’s a week early, but you can blame the ELCA – they preempted the usual night for a meeting of our local churches, then cancelled the meeting after we all moved our schedules around.  Go figure.  Anyway, it should be a fun time.  Food prep starts at 6:30 pm, and movie at 7 pm (please, please let it be “Coco!”).

Tomorrow (Sat. March 17th) at 9 am is the first of our Church Clean-up Days.  Yes, this is also a week earlier than usual, but it’s because there will be two clean-up days this year.  If you can’t come tomorrow, you can come next Saturday!  Or come to both!  Or come during the week!  Church Clean-Up will take place rain or shine. We’ll tackle the indoor projects if it rains  (Holland Hall walls, church pews, windows, blinds, handles, and fixtures throughout the campus). The stump removal and weeding will still be available when the sun peeps out or for those that need a shower.  Food and supplies will be provided!  Come as early as you can and bring your work gloves, preferred tools, and rested bodies for the big power-clean days.  Questions?  Call Kate at 510-552-3656.

Another schedule change is the Daytimers’ Luncheon, which would normally take place this Tuesday, but has been cancelled for this month because so many are sick.  Pray for everybody’s health so I can get my free lunch back!

Even the schedule of Pilate and his wife has been moved around.  They were supposed to perform their dialogue at the previous Midweek Lenten Service, but switched with Martha and Mary to be at this week’s service, Wednesday at 6:30 pm.  It’s the last of these half-hour meditative services, so don’t miss it!

Holy Week starts with Palm Sunday services on March 25th (Carmen could use some extra readers – please mob her this Sunday). There will be a joint Maundy Thursday service (not that kind of joint – it’s with other local ELCA churches) 7 pm March  22nd at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1301 Mowry Ave, Fremont, with a soup potluck at 6 pm (maybe you can bring your hemp-seed soup).  We will observe Good Friday at 7 pm with a solemn Taizé service.  Then, of course, comes Easter with services at 8:45 am and 11am, breakfast between the services, and an Easter egg hunt at 10:30 for the kids.  Come to all the services and experience the most dramatic week of the church year!

Our annual Seder Meal will take place on Palm Sunday (March 25th) at 5pm.  Please sign up at the Media Table so food amounts can be planned (and no, you don’t have to eat lamb – there will be other choices).  Homemade matzoh is always appreciated if you can manage it. Suggested donation: $15 for people 12 and up, $10 for people 5–11, and under 5, free.  Food, fellowship, ritual, and fun – what’s not to like?

Once again this year, we will have our Easter Garden in the sanctuary. You can sign up at the media table to bring a plant in honor or in memory of someone. Please print legibly to help ensure correct spelling in the bulletin (she may be a personal hero, but she probably doesn’t want to be called Moth-hair Teresa). Just purchase the plant –  any kind, size or color is welcome, and make sure it’s at the church by 10 am on Saturday, Mar 31st.  Pairs of plants are especially nice for symmetry’s sake.

Are you a Thrivent member?  Your Thrivent Choice Dollars expire on March 31st!  Please consider designating them for Holy Trinity (free money – yaaay!).

The Spaghetti Feed will be here April 14th.  Tickets are on sale between services.  They are $15 for adults, $10 for children 3-12, and $45+ for families.  Start getting together those donations of gift cards and prize baskets for the raffle and silent auction.  Pick up flyers in the narthex to post anywhere that will let you, and to hand out to all your friends, acquaintances, and perfect strangers!

See you in church!

Hi, Everyone.  Lots of stuff coming up:

This Sunday, March 11th, is the 4th Sunday of Lent and Scrip Sunday.  Remember Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend.  Before you go to bed Saturday night, set your clocks forward an hour so you aren’t late to church and give us six more weeks of winter (or am I confusing that with something else?).

Joann Anderson would like to thank everyone for their kind thoughts, words, cards and prayers as she recovers.  She is unable to respond at this time, but wants everyone to know their thoughtfulness is appreciated.

Midweek Lenten Services continue on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm through March 21st.  If you haven’t experienced these meditative and moving services, there’s only a couple left.  This Wednesday, listen as Pilate and his wife share their thoughts on Jesus’ death.

Due to a scheduling conflict, Family Movie Night will be moved up a week to next Friday, Mar 16th at 6:30 pm in the Activity Room. Join us for food and a fun family film!

This year we will have two – count ‘em – two Church Clean-up Days to spruce up the place for Holy Week and Easter.  We will have the usual pre-Palm-Sunday cleaning on Saturday March 24th, and one a week earlier on Saturday March 17th in case you can’t make the later one (if, for instance, you’re participating in the March for Our Lives event).  And, if you can’t make either of those days, there will be a sign-up sheet with a list of what needs to be done so that you can come anytime during the week (boy, you’re gonna have a hard time coming up with excuses now!).  Both clean-up days start at 9 am, and there will be tasks for all ages and abilities (plus snacks – don’t forget the snacks!).  The camaraderie (and snacks) make this a fun event.  Remember, “many hands make light work” (of the snacks).

Once again this year, we will have our Easter Garden in the sanctuary. Please sign up at the media table to bring a plant in honor or in memory of someone. Please print legibly to help ensure correct spelling in the bulletin (it’s none of my business if you want to dedicate something to Martian Luther – maybe you’ve been doing some extreme evangelizing!). Just purchase the plant –  any kind, size or color is welcome, and make sure it’s at the church by 10 am on Saturday, Mar 31st. Too much color is not enough!

Another thing you can sign up for is our annual Seder Meal on Palm Sunday (March 25th) at 5pm.  We will have a (mostly) traditional Seder Meal with all the trimmings and activities. Please sign up on the sheet at the Media Table so food amounts can be planned. Pick up a matzoh recipe if you want to make homemade matzoh for the meal. Suggested donation: $15 for people 12 and up, $10 for people 5–11, and under 5, free. Come experience this fascinating mixture of ritual and food!

Here’s our Holy Week service schedule: Palm Sunday services are at our usual times on March 25th (procession with palms at the 8:45 am service).  There will be a combined Maundy Thursday service on the 22nd at 7 pm with the local ELCA churches at Christ the King Lutheran Church (1301 Mowry Ave, Fremont).  We will observe Good Friday at 7 pm with a solemn Taizé service.  Please come and experience the full range of emotions from Palm Sunday to Easter.

The Spaghetti Feed will be here before you know it (April 14th).  Tickets are on sale between services.  They are $15 for adults, $10 for children 3-12, and $45+ for families.  Start getting together those donations of gift cards and prize baskets for the raffle and silent auction.  For the gift cards, consider using our scrip program so that Holy Trinity gets a cut (what a coincidence – it’s Scrip Sunday!)  And if you’re an avid shopper like I am, it’s never too early to look for deals for a prize basket!

See you in church!

Hi, Everyone:

This Sunday, March 4th, is the 3rd Sunday of Lent and Nacho Name Tag Sunday.

Tonight (Friday) is Game Night and potluck in the Activity Room.  Eating begins sometime between 6:30 and 7pm and continues while we schmooze and play games until we’re tired and full – usually sometime between 8:30 and 9pm.  Don’t feel like you have to come on time, bring food, or stay late – Just come and have fun!

Don’t forget about Midweek Lenten Services continuing on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm through March 21st.  Come and enjoy a relaxing, meditative half-hour service and meet folks from the other local Lutheran churches.  This week we hear from Mary and Hannah in a conversation called “Through a Mother’s Eyes.”

HTLC is planning its second Day at the Ballpark (somebody better warn the ballpark!).  Join your fellow church community members for tailgating before the big game, a matchup between the A’s and the Tigers at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, then a fireworks show afterward.  Game time is 6:05 p.m. Everything else is to be determined.  Tickets are first-come, first-served. Each ticket is $25.50 (includes handling fee).  Our group will be sitting in the Plaza section along third base.  Please add your name to the list on the Media Table.  There are 40 tickets available.  If it looks like that’s not enough, we will create a waiting list.  Payment will confirm your tickets; all payments are due by the end of June.  Seats that have not been paid for will be released back to the A’s.  Any questions, please ask Kathy Miedema (skoop32@yahoo.com).

Marielle’s Winter Relief Project is enjoying great success, thanks to the support of the HTLC church community. With a donation from the Souper Bowl of Caring plus other donations, Marielle’s project is growing into something beyond the December cause of the month. In that spirit, she is renaming the project HTLC Sunday School’s Helping Hands, and the youth of the church are going to help make homeless bags filled with snacks, water and socks that can be distributed by Abode, the same multi-county organization that used to accept HTLC’s sandwiches for the homeless. We plan to make the first drop-off of homeless bags to Abode in April.  Way to step up, youth!

The always-popular (if not to say rambunctious) Spaghetti Feed is coming up on April 14th, but tickets are already on sale now!  They are $15 for adults, $10 for children 3-12, and $45+ for families.  Look for Kathy Miedema between services.  And speaking of the Spaghetti Feed, Briana Holland is looking for donations of gift cards and prize baskets for the raffle and silent auction.  For the baskets, it’s fun to get creative and go for a theme.  For the gift cards, consider using our scrip program so that Holy Trinity gets a cut (it is a fundraiser, after all).

See you in church!

Hi, Everyone:

This Sunday, February 25th, is the 2nd Sunday of Lent, as well as Lutheran Loose Change Sunday, and Bold Women’s Day (don’t get them mixed up – it is not Loose Lutheran Women for Bold Change Sunday).  Bold Women’s Day is the fourth Sunday in February which WELCA (Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) has chosen to honor Lutheran women who act boldly on their faith.  Also this Sunday is Lois Miller’s Memorial Service (a bold, faithful Lutheran woman if ever there was one).  The service is at 1 pm with a reception in Holland Hall afterward.  Please come and celebrate her life.

But before all that happens, there is a Bold Women’s Lunch on Saturday (tomorrow) at Panera (2650 Mowry Ave, Fremont) at 12:30 pm.  All bold women, their hangers-on, and essentially all who want to have a good time are invited.  Everybody pays for their own food, so you won’t have to fight a bold woman for the check.

But before that happens, it’s Movie Night tonight (Friday) at about 6:30 pm in the Activity Room.  I hear the movie is going to be “Wonder Woman,” which fits in nicely with the bold women theme going on. (speaking of themes going on, now I’ve got the 70’s TV theme going on in my head – “…dum dum dum dum dum dum – WONDER WOMAN!!!”)

Midweek Lenten Services have begun and will run through March 21st.  These short (about a half hour) meditative services start at 6:30 pm and include Taize music.  This coming Wednesday we will hear from Mary and John in “This Cross Has Made Us Family.”  Take a break from all of the Lenten hustle and bustle!

(“…bad dum ba ba ba da ooh – In your satin tights, fighting for your rights, and the old red white and blue!”)

The Spaghetti Feed is coming up on April 14th, but tickets are already on sale now!  They are $15 for adults, $10 for children 3-12, and $45+ for families.  Look for Kathy Miedema between services for the next couple of weeks.  And speaking of the Spaghetti Feed, Briana Holland is looking for donations of gift cards and prize baskets for the raffle and silent auction.  For the gift cards, consider using our scrip program so that Holy Trinity gets a cut.  And I always think it’s fun to put together a prize basket – maybe with a Wonder Woman theme!

(“…Stop a bullet cold, make the Axis fold, change your mind and change the world!”)

See you in church!
