TRINITY RESPONDS TO WINTER STORM!
DONATES $3,615.00 TOWARD MATCHING GRANT!
“Beginning Feb. 14, a polar vortex descended over the United States. Subfreezing temperatures and heavy snow swept across the country, impacting millions of people. The harsh conditions severely impacted Southern states which lack the infrastructure to handle the freezing temperatures and record-setting snow and ice. This has led to power, food and water shortages throughout the region. At its peak, 4.5 million homes and businesses in Texas were without power. With bursting pipes and broken water systems, millions of people are facing water disruptions. As temperatures rise, melting ice and snow is expected to cause more water damage” – Lutheran Disaster Response
 
At our Annual Budget Meeting Trinity voted to support the storm relief efforts of our church. This past week in response to a letter from our Bishop, Amy Current, we sent an offering of $3615.00 which will be matched. Because of your generosity over this past year we were able to respond with assistance for our neighbors in the south. + Pr. Gregg
 
SUPPORTING LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF!
This past week Trinity sent $450.00 for the farm animal project. Farm animals are provided to assist families with an on going source of food and income. Families then pass on animals born to another family for the same purpose, and it keeps going. Kind of our version of “pay it forward.”

2021 BUDGET SET. After postponing our annual budget meeting for 3 weeks because of weather we were finally able to meet February 21. A budget of $284,106.00 was approved.
 
LENTEN MIDWEEK
“SHADOW STATIONS OF THE CROSS”
WEDNESDAYS 6:30 P.M.
MARCH 3, “Jesus Carries His Cross”

Our Confirmation Youth will be leading us in Shadow Stations of the Cross. Please join us on Wednesdays 6:30 p.m. for this brief time of reflection and prayer. We think you will find these stations to enrich your faith and devotion to the way of Jesus during his journey to the cross.

 
LENTEN 2021 GIVING PROJECT
CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION SERVICES

 
This year we are focusing local and have designated Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS) as our recipient. So, if you still have your coin bucket from last year use it. We have a few we will set out. But really you can choose your own “coin container” be it a bowl, jar, etc. and start saving up your coins to support the great work CAPS does on behalf of children! If coin collecting isn’t your thing you can write a check to Trinity with notation Child Abuse Prevention Services. Thank you!
