The Santa’s Helper gifts for our family of five are purchased, wrapped and will be under our tree for dedication on Sunday, December
3rd. Thank You again for being intentional in your giving to others not only in our community but beyond. You continue to make a difference in the lives of so many.
On that note, would like to recap some of the giving/outreach in 2023 where Trinity participated in making that difference!!
THANK YOU for Caring!
Fred and Libby Dearing in Worship, Sunday, October 15th:
We're excited to welcome back Fred and Libby Dearing, Volunteers in Mission to the Republic of South Sudan, for worship and a fellowship meal following the service. Fred, a retired pastor in our Holston Confer- ence and a former District Superintendent will be in our pulpit. Libby, a retired nurse, who has been instrumental, or as many have called her the "heart" behind the development of the two orphanages, Grace Home and Greenland Home in South Sudan, will share a "Children's Moment for Mission" and then during our fellowship time she will bring us up to date on the lives of our 36 Children, now really Young Adults. How fast they grow up.
This will be the sixth year Fred and Libby have worshiped with us, and our journey with them has been steadfast as the lives of our 36 Children have changed and forever been impacted by the devastating on-going civ- il war, and their relocation to a refuge camp in Uganda. Many of you "adopted" a child or two or three many years ago and continue to lift them up in your prayers.
We invite you to join us October 15th as we fellowship together. We will take an offering that morning to provide continuing support for our 36 Children.

Beginning in January, the UMW began collecting small cans of Vienna Sausage, tuna or jars of peanut butter 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.In the Spring we will host the "Grannies" of Wesley House for lunch and bingo
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!!
After many months we were asked last month to provide a single bed and two toddler bed for children in our community. This ministry is in partnership with Lenoir City Schools Family Resource Center. 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 43 mattress/box springs sets with sheets.
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 children, 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!!
UMCOR Response for Ukraine: 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.
UMCOR continues to respond to disaster around the world, providing essential services to assist people in getting back on their feet. Mississippi, Tennessee, Hawaii and wherever disaster stikes, UMCOR will be there. Remember 100% of your gift goes directly to assist. Thank you so very much.
