August means the start of school and that means the annual Battle of the Bridge Football Game (Friday, August 26th at LC) and thus Trinity participating in the annual Battle of the Bridge Canned Food Drive and competition. For three Sundays, August 7th, August 14th and August 21st, Trinity will join with others in the community by donating canned goods to benefit families in Loudon County. Good Samaritan will collect the food and ultimately distribute it
too. This drive collects the largest amount of food each year for those families and children in our community who are food insecure.
While shopping, please consider picking up an extra canned good or two for a needy family. You may place your items in the designated basket in the Education hallway.
If it is more convenient, you may make a donation by writing "Battle of the Bridge" on the memo line of your check or offering envelope. One dollar equals 5lbs of food. However you wish to participate, we say "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.
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.
MINISTRY UPDATE 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.
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.
