Trinity has once again been asked to provide twelve (12) Hygiene Kits for both boys and
girls. We will supply six (6) for each gender. These kits will be given to homeless chil- dren, children from displaced families, and as Susan Fox, Director of FRC, said earlier, “to those who have no opportunities for a toothbrush.” Their parents will also be able to use these items.
In order to maintain consistency in the size of the items and the products included, we are asking you to please make a donation toward these kits. The kits consist of approxi- mately 20 items each, not travel size. Our Outreach/Missions committee will shop for these items, and the kits will be dedicated on Sunday, February 12th.
If this outreach is of interest to you, please write “Hygiene Kits” on the memo line of your check or offering envelope. And we say Thank You!!! Thank You!!
Beginning in January, the UMW began collecting small cans of Vienna Sausage to benefit Wesley House Ministry in Knoxville. Support his vital ministry on the first Sunday of each month. Cans should be placed in the designated basket in the back hallway.
Support of Wesley House is an on-going ministry of Trinity United Methodist Women. Late Spring we will host the "Grannies" of Wesley House for lunch and bingo
MINISTRY UPDATE: We plan to have Fred and Libby Dearing as our worship leaders in October when they will bring us news of the mission.
The people of the Holston Conference have partnered with the people of South Sudan in ministry since 2007. Today, because civil war continues in South Sudan, our partners in ministry are trying to survive in Uganda. The Rev. Fred Dearing is returning to Uganda and Holston's ministry with the people of South Sudan. Fred will join with the pastors and leaders to make a plan for the way forward. In March, a small team from Holston will visit to celebrate pastors' seminary graduation and make plans for the next steps for the ministry. While life in South Sudan and Uganda continues to be challenging, discouraging, and upended by Corona virus, our friends and colleagues in ministry are an inspiration as they live in joy despite hardship and pain. Together, we will continue to stand with them in prayer and other support knowing that one day they will return to South Sudan.
Today is our final opportunity to provide Thanksgiving Baskets to families in our community. We are so fortunate to have Good Samaritan be that assis- tance and we here at Trinity can join in too. Last year over 500 families were provided baskets full of supplies for a "thankful" meal. If you would like to be part of this outreach, a basket is
$25. Please write "Thanksgiving Basket" on the memo line of your check or offering enve- lope. We Thank You!!
A very big Thank You to Ab Brookshire who delivered two (2) mattress and box springs along with two sets of sheets for a 6-year old boy and his 3-year old sister. Because of the nature of the trailer/housing conditions we included two throws for the children for these winter times. This ministry is underwritten by grants provided from our Holston Conference Change 4 Children and our Holston Conference Foundation. We thank them both for giving Trinity the opportunity to participate in this very important ministry to our Lenoir City Schools’ children.
Beginning in October 2016, Trinity has now delivered 39 mattress/box springs sets with sheets.
UMCOR Response for Ukcraine: The United Methodist community in Ukraine, though quite small, is actively engaged in assisting those in need. If you would like to assist too, please write "Ukraine" on the memo line of your check or offering envelope and your gift will go to support our UMCOR (United Methodist Committee On Relief) International Disaster Response and Recovery team already working in Ukraine and the surrounding welcoming countries as well. Remember 100% of your gift goes directly to assist. Thank you so very much.
