july 4th BBQ

Kim Root-George is coordinating our participation in the 4th of July BBQ at Eden Lutheran Church. Eden is providing hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks, Hope Lutheran is providing buns and condiments, and Trinity is providing the dessert. Each family attending is asked to bring a salad to share. Sign up on the sheet in Heinecken Hall. The BBQ starts at 5:00 pm. Everyone is asked to bring $10.00 gift cards to use for bingo prizes. After dinner, we will play bingo, and the fireworks show starts at 9:00 p.m. Bring a lawn chair for viewing the fireworks. You’ll need a permit to park in Eden’s parking lot (ask Kim or our church office for one). If you would like to donate a gift card for the bingo prizes and help support Trinity, you need to order your gift card from Willy today or next Sunday in order to have it by July 4th.

pb&j’s for summer

The Social Concerns Committee is sponsoring another peanut butter drive this June to help the less fortunate mothers fill their children’s tummies with nutritious sandwiches during the summer school break. Every year we are amazed by your generosity and we hope that you can support this project again this year. Bring a jar of peanut butter to church any time during the month. We will have a total per week posted in the narthex. You may want to contribute a jar each week, or expand your donation to include jars of jelly. Every item donated will be taken to either Central City Lutheran Mission or Lutheran Social Services. Let’s keep this mission going again this year!
