Food & Funds on the Fifth
Once again it is a Food on the Fifth month. On the Fifth Sunday, July 30, we will donate canned and boxed food to share with our community neighbors. This month the recipient is the Christian Service Center. Funds are also collected through the offering plate by designating "Church Discretionary Fund" on the memo line or envelope face. These monies are designated to help people within our congregation and in our community who are in difficult or desperate financial stress. Start collecting now!


Comfort Dog Ministry
Our public fundraising campaign for the Comfort Dog Ministry was launched Tuesday through GoFundMe.  Please find it on our Facebook page and share it with your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, EVERYONE!  And then tell them to share it with everyone they know.  We need to get the word out into the community so they can help us reach our goal!
 
Building the Team  We're building the Comfort Dog Ministry Team now.  On the Comfort Dog Webpage you'll find a list of opportunities to serve on this ministry team.  Contact us at ComfortDog@TrinityDowntown.com  to let us know.  The next team meeting will be in August!  Let's get to know one another, find out where and how everyone can serve, and learn more about what is involved in community visits with the dog and taking care of the dog.  
 
Thank you for your support!  We're thrilled about all the outreach opportunities this will provide and how many people can be involved!  This is going to be an awesome ministry for Trinity!

 
 
New Bible Study Series in July
For all five Sundays in July at 9:30am in Fellowship Hall, join a discussion group that will reflect on some of our favorite church hymns and dig into the scriptural references within them. Together we'll explore the treasures of encouragement and teaching found in some of our most inspiring music.  It's a great time to visit with your church family and learn something new about music and scripture.  Coffee and snacks are available - we just need YOU.  Click here for a lsit of all Bible study groups.

Missionary Updates

Lehman Family Update from Spain
As always, things have been both busy and exciting for us and for the Lutheran Church in Spain. At this point, the property in Sevilla is almost ready to be used. All of the renovations have been finished. This means that all that remains is to acquire the necessary license to open as a public place. It has been a very long process, so we are very happily rejoicing and thanking our gracious Lord for getting us as far as we have come..  For the whole update click here .
