“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.”
