Drum kit donated to church

Mim Frantz with her daughter Jeannine, granddaughter Paola & Jerri Mendivel

Mim Frantz officially donated Dick Frantz’s drum kit to the church. Dick “loaned” his 1950’s Ludwig drum kit to the church many years ago so the Praise Band drummer wouldn’t have to bring his kit in every Sunday. Thank you Mim and Dick for your gift.

The congregation completed several projects for God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday including making blessing bags, signing cards for members not able to attend services and tying quilts. Thanks to all who participated.

Dinner Image

We are so pleased with our dinner attendance. We had 28 guests the first night, and it is increasing every Monday! We are providing a delicious evening meal to homeless/hungry people every Monday at 5:30 PM. This TLC sponsored outreach is the only hot meal for the homeless provided on Mondays in the environs of Riverside, so we anticipate continued growth. The meal includes a hot casserole, vegetable/green salad, buttered bread and a choice of drinks (coffee, water, or punch). Any food remaining after we serve here at Trinity goes to Central City Lutheran Mission or Lutheran Social Services. Our plea for helpers to make and serve the Monday Dinners has been answered! Thank you, and we hope you will want to come back and lend a hand again. Come by any Monday evening and have a look at our team in action. You’ll like what you see!
