The kids from Trinity Square have gathered to see the circus parade and then watch the circus. There is excitement in the air but it all comes to a screeching halt when the Ring Master, Mr. Harvey Bailey, realizes the circus team has not arrived. As he sees the crowd around him, Mr. Bailey decides the show must go on. He convinces the reluctant crowd they can do anything when they depend upon the true Trinity – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Come and be a part of a real circus – juggling, acrobatics, balance beam, clowns, etc.

THE JULY RIDE: The hottest part of the summer has us heading to the cooler mountain air with a lunch stop at Bear Creek Marina on beautiful Lake James. We’ll take Rt. 16N through Newton to Rt. 10 through Cesar. The roads are mostly back country but leisurely all the way to Rt. 266N. We can expect a full day of riding (maybe 200 miles). Should be a fun ride and nice scenery.
