Special Musical Guests: Ernie Couch & Revival
at Trinity UMC, Sequim, Saturday, August 10, 2 pm  FREE, with Love Offering accepted (Make checks payable to Ernie Couch & Revival).

Ernie Couch & Revival performed here last July. Please join us as we welcome them back. No tickets will be sold and no reservations need to be made, so to keep this free and fair, it’s first come, first served!

Nashville-based father, son, and grandson trio, Ernie, Jason, and Memphis Couch, will be playing their special blend of Gospel and Christian music, with traditional overtones. as well as new and innovative sounds sometimes referred to as “Americana Gospel.” They strive to present gospel music in a fun, honest, and heartfelt way.  Their personal and unique musical blend of the past and present has a way of appealing to listeners of all ages. They are real talents, evident in the many opportunities they have had to work with others in various genres of music ranging from George Beverly Shea to George Jones, from Petra to Patti Page, or Jake Hess to James Earl Jones, to name a few.

Please take the time to check these guys out for yourself at www.erniecouchandrevival.com or on their Facebook page at Ernie Couch & Revival.

The concert is a free event with a Love Offering. They will also be selling CD’s and such after the concert. Collected monies will go directly to Ernie, Jason and Memphis (no “pass through” involving Trinity), so we ask that offering checks be made out directly to Ernie Couch & Revival.

Lois’s Legacy
A massive thank you to everyone who contributed to and attended the wonderful 10th Anniversary Gala for Lois’s Legacy! During the event, Pauline Olsen was honored for her vision and faithful commitment to developing this valuable mission for TUMC. An appreciation gift was presented to Pauline of organ lessons through the end of the year, which was gratefully received. Special thanks to Marilyn Hryciw and Beverly Teal for the time and creative energy they invested in this special event, from the cakes to the themed decorations. Everything was perfect and appreciated.

Lois’s Legacy also wants to welcome Jan Hayward to the volunteer office staff. With her commitment, the office is now staffed five days a week. Thank you, Jan!

There is still a need for a volunteer director to oversee this mission and guide its continued growth and contribution to our church family and community. Interested persons, please contact Pauline or the TUMC Missions committee.

This month, Lois’s Legacy would like to highlight a valuable publication called Compass & Clock, a magazine that provides resources aimed at enabling seniors to “navigate life today to remain independent tomorrow.” It can be found at www.compassandclock.com. This biennial publication provides articles, a variety of resources, blogs, and podcasts, all specific to Clallam and surrounding counties. The Lois’s Legacy office has sample magazines for those interested. An annual subscription is only $5.99. This is definitely worth a look!

Office Hours: Tues., Wed., Fri., 10:00–2:00
