Mission Box
This week's Mission Box is House of Hope. The House of Hope of Gainesville has been serving the community since 1996. It is a prison transitional ministry helping men and women mend their lives from the consequences of crime. The program is Christ-centered, and its participants live in a home like a family. The belief is that love and support changes people from the inside out. "For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in; I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came to me." - Matthew 25:35-40. (Text TrinityGNV to 779-77 for a link to give to the Mission Box with Pushpay.)

Help Needed
Family Promise will be our guests again from October 13-20. Family Promise is an organization that keeps homeless children and their families together while they work on getting their lives on track and finding permanent housing. Trinity, along with a number of other congregations, houses these families four times a year in our church for a week. If you'd like to support this effort, you can help by setting up the rooms, spending a night, having dinner with the families, providing food, and taking laundry home at the end of the week! It takes a village, and we appreciate any help you can lend. You can sign up to help here.

Missions
We have a congregation member in need of some repairs to her door and doorstop. If this is something you could help with, please contact Kelly Ping (352-416-3048).

We are looking for a sponsor for the tote bags we send the Thanksgiving Baskets home in. The bags we currently utilize don't hold the weight of the canned goods, and recyclable tote bags are great not only for their strength but also for these families to help carry home their groceries in the future. If this is something you'd be interested in, please contact Kelly Ping (352-416-3048) as soon as possible!

The Library Partnership assists with 5 daycare facilities around the county and have noticed many children not restrained in car seats. They are looking for donations of new car seats to provide to these families. If you are able and willing to provide one, please place it in the blue bins in either the Narthex or the Education Building. All car seat types are welcome and accepted (i.e., rear or forward-facing convertible, booster with or without harness) .

Did you know? We have crutches, walkers, wheel chairs, knee scooters, and more available to the congregation to borrow for short-term needs. If you need to borrow one of these items, please contact Kelly Ping (352-416-3048).
