Trinity Game Night, Friday Sept 14
Trinity's Game Night in July was such a fun event for all who attended that another is planned for Friday, September 14th , from 6-8pm in the Fellowship Hall. Bring your own fast food dinner, packed dinner from home, or eat before you arrive; drinks and dessert will be provided. Once again we will all be treated to a short hands-on devotion, and several Minute-To-Win-It games for young and old alike. Bingo will be available with simple prizes. Games will be on hand, but you are welcome to bring your favorites from home as well.

ALL TRINITY FAMILY SERVANT SATURDAY
Everyone is invited to participate in SERVANT SATURDAY at Rebecca's Garden of Hope (RGOH) at Our Savior Lutheran on Saturday, September 22, from 9a-1p, or anything period of time in between that you are available to help!  Teams of volunteers will be working on different areas of need in the program's double-wide trailer that houses a tutoring and technology lab for at risk children in our community! Rebecca's Garden is a Recognized Service Organization (RSO) of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) and serves the needs of local at-risk children by providing opportunities for tutoring (and sometimes meals too), as well as loving connections with mentors and their local church. Trinity volunteers serve there once a month to tutor, and saw a need to offer support through a SERVANT SATURDAY project where Trinity volunteers go out in service to meet a need in our community. We have a Thrivent Action Team grant of $250 to help with some small purchases to spruce things up, but will also need volunteers to bring cleaning supplies and various tools. Volunteer needs include those who can help with:
  • interior cleaning (need windex, surface cleanser, paper towels, handi wipes, restroom cleaners, sponges, carpet cleaner)
  • interior sorting/organizing
  • Interior decorating/installation (new bathroom supplies will be provided, curtains needed, details from Terry)
  • Interior minor repairs and installations (bring hammers, nails, screws, drills)
  • Moving furniture and boxes around (strong arms and backs!)
  • exterior weeding (bring gloves, bags, hand held clippers etc)
  • exterior pressure washing (cleaning solution needed)
Please contact Terry Boggs at mammmierocks@yahoo.com to sign up and indicate where you'd like to serve and what supplies you are able to bring with you!  We need a large team to get a lot done in just a few hours, so please mark your calendars and let us know you're coming! THANK YOU.

Please let us know!
Please let your Trinity family know of any scheduled surgery or hospital stay.  In addition to scheduled procedures, please give the church office a call to let us know about extended illness, unplanned hospital stays, or even the birth of a child.  You can call the office at any time and leave a message-no need to wait until business hours (407-488-1919 x101). During business hours, that information can then be forwarded to the appropriate caregivers. For an emergency that requires the care of a Pastor after hours or over the weekend call or text us at 407-490-7339 and leave a message. We'll get back to you ASAP. We want to be sure to know when you need us-whether to pray with you before a scheduled procedure, sit with you during a loved one's procedure, pray for you while you recover, visit you in the hospital/at home or to share praise and thanksgiving prayers for good news/results. Just let us know.  Thank you.

Strength & Flexibility Class
You're welcome to join us on the first and third Mondays of each month for a fitness class at 6:30pm (new start time) in Fellowship Hall. Email Beth at baschu4@bellsouth.net to confirm you're coming. Class starts at 6:30 pm, please arrive by 6:20 pm. Thank you! Bring With You : an exercise mat (and block if you have), $5, Comfy clothes, smile and enthusiasm!

Urgent Prayer Requests
If you have an urgent prayer request that can't wait until you fill out a yellow prayer card during worship, please submit it via email to Pray@TrinityDowntown.com .  While submitting a yellow card during worship is still the preferred way to share prayer requests, sometimes a prayer need can't wait until Sunday.  Your prayer request (first name and basic details of the prayer requested) will be shared with a team of committed weekday prayer warriors and will also be added to Trinity's regular printed prayer list for the congregation.  All prayers are kept on the printed list for a period of three weeks, so please resubmit long term prayer needs regularly so that they stay on the printed list. Thank you.
