Offices Closed for Memorial Day
Please note that the church offices will be closed Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day. We will respond to all questions, concerns, and information needs as quickly as possible beginning on Tuesday, May 31.
Food and Funds on the Fifth Sunday
As always, on any fifth Sunday of a month, we will be collecting food donations for a local food pantry (dry and canned goods only, not expired) and funds for the Pastor's discretionary fund assisting those dealing with immediate financial emergencies. Bring in those dollars and BOGOs on May 29! Thank you.
Stewardship Drive
"What can I offer unto the Lord for all He has done for me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and praise the Lord for saving me. I will keep my promises to the Lord in the presence of all His people." Psalm 116

Trinity is now conducting our annual stewardship campaign. A stewardship letter and pledge card was sent to your home with instructions on how to pledge for the next year.

It has come to our attention that some members of the congregation have not received their stewardship letter. If you are a member or regular attender and have not received this letter, please contact the church office so we can ensure we have the correct contact information for you on file. Extra copies of the letter and pledge can be found at the exits to the church.

May God bless you as you "honor God from your wealth." Proverbs 3:9

Family Fun Night
Wow, last Friday's Family Fun Night was awesome! 39 people attended and we had several winners for various games! Melody Smothers came out and won a card game by "only five points!" Gail won three games of bingo wile David tied with Marcy in Full Cover Bingo. Wendy won one of the bingo games and the Gusewelles came out the winner in their card games. Pastor Doug and James Gusewelle were co-winners in our first-ever basket raffle! Details on the basket raffle for next month are below.

Trinity's next Family Fun Night will be held on Friday, June 24, from 6:30pm-8:30pm. All ages from young to old are welcome to join in on some fun and games, whether board games or card games. A fun addition to this evening will be a popcorn machine and a cotton candy machine.

The Fellowship and Outreach team will be providing American casserole dishes as the main entre. Attendees are asked to bring a dessert. A free-will offering will be taken to help cover operating expenses as well as for the Pastor's Discretionary Fund.

This month will also include a themed basket on display for a raffle drawing. The basket is "What's Poppin'? Popcorn/Movie Night" themed and worth over $75 in value. So bring your $1 bills and play your heart out! Baskets change each month, but the purpose remains the same: to raise money to purchase gazebos for the courtyard.

Please contact the church office with any questions.
