Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is coming June 13-17. The team still has a few needs that we hope the congregation can assist with.

We still need someone to prepare dinner on Monday night and Thursday night. If your group or committee would like to fix dinner on one of those nights, we would very much appreciate it. Please contact Rich at the church office (343-1497) if you would like to help.

As time goes on, the VBS Team will be requesting supplies that are needed. At this point, the only request is for 2 or 3 Slip N’ Slides for our Friday night finale.

As in the past we will be pre-registering participants. This year, pre-registration will be held after church (in Hadley Hall) on May 22, June 5 and June 12. Pre-registration is very important because it helps us plan the week’s events, including dinner preparation. Additionally, supplies are limited; so, pre-registration insures that your child will receive everything.

If your child will be participating, be sure to register early.

Noted Theologian at Trinity

John Cobb at Trinity

Trinity United Methodist Church will soon welcome world-renowned process philosopher and theologian John Cobb, who will speak  on the topic of “Toward an Ecological Civilization” on Saturday May 7 at 7pm. This presentation is co-sponsored by The Chico Area Interfaith Council.

John B. Cobb, Jr. is a process philosopher and theologian who is well-known for his work on social justice and ecological issues. Author of more than fifty books, including one of the first on environmental ethics in 1971 ( Is It Too Late?) Cobb emphasizes what Alfred North Whitehead called “world loyalty.” Cobb recently  co-founded Pando Populus, an organization devoted to creating an ecological civilization. With economist Hermann Daily, Cobb co-authored For the Common Good: Redirecting the Economy Toward Community, Environment, and a Sustainable Future in 1989. Cobb was also the co-founder of the Center for Process Studies in 1973, which has recently inspired the founding of over 30 similar centers in China by thinkers seeking a sustainable future.
