First: Stewardship Update
THANK YOU to everyone who has made a pledge to support the ministries of Trinity in 2020. While there's still a long way to go, the early results are fantastic! As of this morning, 137 pledges have been submitted totaling $782,196. Included in those 137 pledges are 11 households who had no pledge in the previous year and 67 households who increased their pledge from 2019! Also, 17 households have taken the 1st and 10 Challenge.
 
You can make your pledge for 2020 by going here. Keep moving us toward reaching the 2020 pledge goal of $2,030,000. What level of commitment from you would represent both a joyful response and a new step in faith for you?
Time Change

Sunday Worship 
Join us this weekend for All Saints Sunday, where we have the beautiful opportunity to remember all the saints from our own church family who have gone on to be with God. In the words of Charles Wesley, " Let saints on earth unite to sing, with those to glory gone,  for all the servants of our King in earth and heaven, are one. " (from the hymn "Come, Let Us Join Our Friends Above.") You won't want to miss this special and moving Worship Service this weekend.

If you attend the 9:30 Modern Service on Sunday Mornings, head over to Spotify to take a listen to the songs that the worship team will be helping to lead during the service. (There is also a playlist of all the songs we've done in our Modern Worship Service here.)
