October is Pastor Appreciation Month. Our pastors expect nothing in return for their service. But with all that they do to shepherd us, wouldn’t it be nice to do something for them as well? Consider a personal note, a home-baked treat, a gift card, a commitment to pray for them—or find your own special way to say thank you.
We’re having a Ministry Fair on Sunday, Oct 1 in the Gathering Hall. Stop by after either service and take a look at the many different ways you can connect with God and with others, as well as the many opportunities to serve at Trinity.
Operation Christmas Child by Samaritan's Purse will be launching on Oct 15 to give you time to gather items for shoeboxes before their collection date in mid-November. Click here for How to Pack a Shoebox.
