Food & Funds on the Fifth Sunday
THANK YOU for your generosity once again with Food and Funds on the Fifth.  We collected a shopping cart load of food for Second Harvest Food Bank and an additional $414 for the Pastoral Discretionary Fund. 
Thank You Note
Thank you dear Trinity friends for the love and prayers extended to us and our family during Glenn's illness and passing to his heavenly home. Each of you has been a special blessing.  To God be the glory! -Myrt Rhoads.
Educational Sale
On Saturday, July 13 , we will be having an Educational Sale in Heritage Hall (former K-8 Building). The Sale will be from 10am to 2pm. As you can imagine, after 66 years, there is an abundance of educational material, classroom books, classroom sets of readers, desks, tables, chairs, assorted furniture, book shelves, file cabinets, and much much more. Please plan to stop by for some school shopping to help us wrap things up.  Members are welcome to make arrangements with Bev Middleton to preview before the 13th.

Volunteers are requested to help with the sale.  Please contact Bev Middleton to help out at Bev.Middleton@trinitydowntown.com
July-August Cash Flow Issues
First, we would like to thank everyone who participated in our recently completed Stewardship Drive. The response was great!
There is one issue, however, that still needs to be addressed and that is having enough cash on hand to pay our bills in July and August.  While our annual budget accounts for the expenses we expect to incur in the upcoming fiscal year it does not and can not ensure that our receipt of funds will be realized at the same time as our bills fall due. This year we will be experiencing a cash-flow crunch during the months of July and August due to employee benefit plan payments coming due the first week of July and the month of August being a three pay-period month.
If anyone has the ability to pre-pay a portion of their regular annual contribution to Trinity it would greatly help us get through these next two months. This is not a request for anyone to increase their annual giving, but rather to contribute donations that you plan on giving later in the year in the next week or two to help us match our receipt of revenues with the dates our bills fall due. Ideally these pre-payments would be made prior to the beginning of the new fiscal year, that begins July 1 st .  However, any extra payments that you can make during the months of July and August will be a great help.
Thank you for your consideration and for being part of the Trinity Family's ongoing efforts to minister to our flock and spread His word throughout the Downtown Orlando area.
From Peace Comfort Dog
Thank you, Trinity, for supporting my ministry this past year.  And thank you to everyone who visited Fellowship Hall this past weekend to celebrate one year of being vested and my 2 1/2 year birthday! Thank you to those who donated funds as well - your generous contributions totaled $750.  We can't thank you enough for helping this ministry move forward!
Operation Barnabas
O.B. is Trinity's chapter of the LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces.  This Sunday you will hear from Trinity members involved with O.B. and learn about a care package campaign to our active duty veterans.  Please stop by their table in the Narthex to learn more.
Missionary Visit July 27-28
Rev. Shauen Trump with be visiting us the weekend of July 27-28 during all services and he hopes to drop in on the 9:30 Bible study as well. Rev. Shauen and Krista Trump serve with The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya. 
As the LCMS area director for Eastern and Southern Africa, Shauen works with other LCMS personnel serving in these regions of Africa and builds relationships with the leaders of partner churches. He also implements strategies,projects, programs and grants for roughly half the African continent, from Ethiopia to South Africa. Some of the largest and smallest Lutheran churches in the world are in this area, along with literally thousands of languages and cultures. Krista works part time as the Africa region project coordinator, an unofficial logistics coordinator for various events, a hostess and an enduring and gracious wife and mother. 
Shauen was born in northern California and grew up in the Seattle area. He earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Seattle Pacific University and received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Shauen enjoys spending time with his wife, playing monster truck show with his children and buying books that he never has time to read. Krista spent her early childhood in Liberia where her family served with Lutheran Bible Translators. She holds a bachelor's degree in Christian outreach from Concordia University, St. Paul, St. Paul, Minn., and a bachelor's degree in nursing from St. Louis University. Krista previously served through the LCMS in Slovakia from 2003 to 2005. She enjoys baking, buying new kitchen toys, spending time on the coast of Kenya and buying books that she never has time to read. Shauen and Krista have four wonderful boys - Josiah, Elijah, Isaiah and Jeremiah - who join them on the mission field. 
Pray for the Trumps as they serve throughout this substantial area of Africa. Pray they are used to encourage and build up the church in this part of the world. Ask that they be strengthened and given wisdom and discernment to navigate the relationships they have formed and the cultures in which they live and serve.

BIRTHDAYS: Shauen - April 10, Krista - Jan. 29, Josiah - Dec. 19, Elijah - Dec. 22,  Isaiah - Nov. 15, Jeremiah - May 25
SUPPORTING DISTRICTS: Southeastern, Nebraska and South Wisconsin

To learn more about the Trumps' ministry:
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. 

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.
