A special opportunity to help children in Africa receive the food, clothing and shelter they need is coming up this weekend. Trinity Lutheran Church will host an African Art and Crafts Bazaar on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the church, located at 1323 Central Ave. at Morton Street. The event will be presented by the Asante Network, an all-volunteer, non-profit, fair-trade organization.
Trinity Lutheran Church has appointed musician Julie Haydon as its director of music ministry. Haydon has served as the church’s choir director since 2010. She directed music from diverse traditions. She has also directed choral-orchestral works like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria.
“Julie is stepping into a position with an expanded music ministry,” said Trinity’s Interim Pastor Sharon Starkfleet. “We are excited and grateful to have the gift of Julie Haydon’s leadership.”
