Weekly Update From Element!

Weekly Update From Element!

Hey Parents!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It is almost spring break for many of you, and we hope you get some great quality time with your teenager. You will notice that during the week of spring break, we do not offer many youth activates because we want to give you all that time to spend with family. Below is some important information about what is going on with Element this week:

– No Element this Sunday night – We will not have Element this Sunday night, March 29 due to the Spring Break. We will offer Sunday School in the morning.

– Discovery lost-and-found – We still have a few more items in our post-Discovery lost and found. Please send your student to the Haven this week to look for any lost items and letters. We will donate all unclaimed items at the end of this week.

– Extra Discovery T-shirts – We ordered more shirts! If you volunteered at Discovery or if your student did not get their Discovery t-shirt then we have extras. Come pick them up before they are all gone.

– Panama Team Meeting tonight at 6:00pm in the Haven. All those who have signed up to participate in our summer international mission trip to Panama need to attend our first meeting tonight, March 23 at 6:00pm.

– Palm Cross Workshop – This Saturday, we will join with other church members to put together crosses out of palm leaves in preparation for Palm Sunday, March 29. All students and families are invited and encouraged to join in the fun at 9:00am in the Fellowship Hall. Hope you can join us!

– Prayer Breakfast is tomorrow morning! Be here in the cafe at 6:30am to enjoy a delicious breakfast from Hamburger Heaven and hear a great devotional from our young adult volunteer Matthew Collins! This is a fantastic way to start the day, and it is only $3. We hope to see you there! We will NOT have Prayer Breakfast the week of Spring Break (March 29-April 4).

– Element Cafe is this week on Tuesday and Thursday from 3-5:30pm. We are selling NACHOS during the month of March! This is a wonderful alternative to going home and being bored. Come hang out with us, grab a snack, plays some games and hang out with our staff and friends. All candy, chips and drinks are only 50 cents! Element Cafe is always a fun time, and we hope your student will join us this week!! We will NOT have Element Café the week of Spring Break (March 29-April 4).

– Easter Sunrise Service – We would like to invite you to attend our High school senior-led Easter Sunrise Service at 6:30am at the Edgewood Central Park Amphitheater. Following the service, we will serve breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. This is a great way to start Easter, so we hope to see you there!

– ARM Middle school mission trip – We STILL need more adult volunteers for this trip July 19-24. If you are willing to be an adult leader on ARM, please email David Hayes at dhayes@trinitybirmingham.com!

– Service Over Self! Our high school mission trip is July 5-11 (still space available for students). We are also now looking for adult leaders! If you are interested either as a student or an adult leader, please go to http://elementstudentministry.com/sos/ or email Robert at rsturdivant@trinitybirmingham.com.

As always, please let us know if there is anything that we can be doing to reach your student.

In Christ,
