Mission Box 
This week's mission box supports our Vacation Bible School, "Hero Central." About 125 youth and adults share the love of Jesus with over 300 children in VBS. In addition to providing an awesome VBS here at Trinity, we are excited to share that we are also partnering with Bartley Temple! Your monetary donations help keep the registration costs to a minimum, and will go directly toward our VBS mission opportunities: food for the Backpack program or school supplies. Thank you so much for prayerfully considering making a donation towards VBS. (text 2 give keyword: vbs).

If you answered yes to either question, this trip might be for you! From August 12 - 27, we will be serving with Y-Malawi and World Vision in the villages of Nkhoma and Chilenje on a medical and construction mission trip to host mobile medical clinics and assist in the construction of a Youth Camp. During this trip we will have the opportunity to visit with sponsor children that so many of you support.
