An Evening with Open Doors and George Bolder of Middle East Services Tuesday, April 12, 2011, 7:00 pm The Falls Church, Nicolson Hall, 115 E. Fairfax St., Falls Church, VA Please come and hear what the Lord is doing in the Middle East for and through His people. God is at work calling and crafting His church to accomplish the spectacular. And nowhere is God’s activity more amazing to watch than among those for whom following Christ can mean public humiliation, isolation and extreme persecution. George Bolder will tell us from personal exposure and experience how our brothers and sisters in Christ are responding to the hardship and difficulties resulting from persecution. George has spoken in the past in the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark and Belgium and in several Middle East and Latin American countries. He has travelled to over 45 countries in the Middle East, Far East, North Africa, Central Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe. George is an excellent speaker and has much to tell us about the Persecuted Church. For further information please contact Alana Johnson, 703 772 3404 or Alana2walk@cox.net. Please be there!
Special Holy Week Services As part of our Easter Celebration each year, we walk through Jesus’ final days, called “Holy Week.” On Thursday, April 21st, at 730 pm, we have a Maundy Thursday service, where we remember Jesus’ last supper with His disciples. On Friday, April 22nd, from 4:30-5:30 pm, we offer a family-friendly service geared towards families with young children. The message is appropriate for little ones, and helps them understand the significance of Good Friday, the day Jesus died, and points them towards the joy of His resurrection on Easter Day. For more information, contact Anna Hornbuckle at: ahornbuckle@ trurochurch.org or 703.273.1300, ext. 314.
Meet-Ups! New at the Parish Retreat A Meet-Up is a group of people who “meet-up” at an assigned time and place to enjoy a particular activity together. Several meet-ups are already scheduled including: horseback riding, basketball game, The Shops of Dayton, and Farmer’s Market Meet-ups are a great opportunity to connect with others. The possibilities are endless! Any activity that you are interested in can become a Meet-up, such as golf, photography, walking/hiking, a field trip to the pool, and bridge or board games. Some groups may be centered around a season of life or specific topic. Maybe you’ve always wished you could find other single parents, young marrieds or empty nesters at Truro. If you have an idea for a Meet-up we will help you! Simply contact Laura Workman before May 10 at 703.273.1300, ext 316 or e-mail email@example.com.

Special Giving for Easter Greens & Music—Throughout Lent, special giving envelopes will be in the pew racks, allowing you to offer special gifts in honor or in memory of loved ones. Your faithful participation and generous contributions will help us offer the finest adornments and music as an act of worship during the Lenten and Easter Seasons. Please place your gifts in the offering plates. Memorials and Thanksgivings received by Friday, April 1st will be listed in the Easter Day worship guides; afterward, they will be listed in the May 1st worship guide. Easter Procession—We are looking for families or individuals who would like to help with the procession to prepare the Altar for Communion at the 7:30 am service on Easter morning. There will be a rehearsal held at noon on Saturday, April 23 (the day before Easter) for those who are able to attend. Please come join us for this Truro tradition and celebration! To sign up, contact Chris Douglas, email@example.com, ext. 220. Fellowship and Support for Moms—Do you have a child newborn to age 5? Then you are warmly invited to join Truro MOPS, a special group for mothers of preschool age children. The second Tuesday of each month we come together for dinner followed by a guest speaker’s presentation on a topic of interest to us as mothers, and then we enjoy thoughtful small group discussion. Our next meeting will be held Tuesday, April 12 at 7:00 PM in the Undercroft. For more information, or to register for MOPS, please contact Debbie Cole at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Mark your calendars for the Spring Swap on Saturday, April 30th from 9:30–11:30 am! Although hosted by MOPS, this event is open to the entire church and all are welcome to participate. This is closets and/or to get clothing and toys for your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews. Bring your gently used children’s items (clothing, books, DVDs, toys, maternity clothes, baby gear, etc.) in the morning, set them out on the marked tables, and then, when “shopping time” begins, just take what you need! Be sure to sort your items before coming so that you can place them out more quickly. Anything that is not taken by the end of the event will be given to charity. The price of admission is a package of baby wipes for a local crisis pregnancy center and either items for the swap or, if you don’t have anything to pass on, food to share (muffins, fruit, etc.). Summer Musical— Truro Church is excited to announce Fiddler on the Roof as the 2011 Summer musical! Mark your calendars for performances on July 22–24, 2011. After last year’s smashing hit OZ!, we are looking forward to another great summer of dramatic fun! Fiddler on the Roof is a show that features all ages, and we hope that you will be a part of this year’s production. Auditions are May 17 and 18 from 4 pm–10 pm. Rehearsals will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings beginning on June 21st. Women’s Bible Study on James—Ladies, please join us for a new Wednesday evening Bible study. Wed during spring, 6:30–8:00 pm (Conference Room, 2nd flr of Ed Bldg), with a break for Holy Week. We will start with Chapter 1 on April 13, but feel free to jump in any time after the study has started. We will be reading and discussing the book of James, using a commentary in The Bible Speaks Today Series titled The Message of James by J. Alec Motyer. Childcare is provided.
