Please contact the church office if you are in need of transportation.

Haley Warner: Weekly day off

Haley Warner, Director of Youth Ministries, will normally take Friday as her day off. There may be weeks in which she would choose an alternate day if she would need to work on a Friday due to youth programs/needs.

Thank you for your gracious and hearty response to the card shower for Haley. Thanks also to Jo Lower and Carol Evertts for organizing Haley's June 3rd welcome during coffee fellowship. ~Ken Gable and Beth Sider (Staff-Parish Team)

Back to School Bonanza

Trinity Church will be collecting just backpacks for the Back to School Bonanza this year.  We will need various sizes, ranging from Kindergarten thru 12th grade for boys and girls. Donations of backpacks may be put on the table in hallway.  Families will then be able to come and pick up the backpacks (which will be pre-filled with school items we already have or will purchase). The more back packs we have, obviously, the more children we can help.
Distribution date: July 26th    Time: 6 – 7 PM.  Place: Fellowship Hall
Would you please help us to reach those outside Trinity walls who are in need????  We will have light refreshments and activities for the children.  Thank you all so very much. 
Carol Evertts, Tiffany Hollinger and Sharon Immel, Coordinators

Soup Fellowship Ministry

The Soup Fellowship Ministry needs your games and musical talent. They would like donations of new or gently used games and puzzles (100 pieces or less - for all ages). Please put your donated items on the table in the hallway. Also, for all of our musically-talented people, would you consider sharing your talent with us at one of the soup meals? If so, please sign the signup sheet across from the mailboxes. If you have any questions, please call Sharon Immel at 717-712-0991.

Attention Knitters and Crocheters!

Do you have a stash of left-over yarn from finished knitted or crocheted projects?   Would you like a suggestion as to how to use that yarn in a way that would benefit others?  Bethesda Mission has assured me that cold-weather hats and scarves for men, women and children would be greatly appreciated and distributed to those in need.  If you would like to join me in making hats and scarves for Bethesda, please email me, or call me at 717-502-4295, and we’ll schedule a time to share ideas and plan how to make this outreach happen.  Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could deliver hats and scarves to Bethesda Mission next Fall in time for them to be given to those who need them before cold weather returns.  Please pray about how you might contribute to this outreach.  And let’s also pray for the homeless men, women, and children who are struggling to survive.  ~Karen Bowen

Coffee Cans Needed

The Altar Guild could use some more small coffee cans to make transporting altar flowers from the church more trouble-free. Please bring in the 8-12 oz. cans and place them on the table at the back of the hallway. Thanks

Hope Springs Farm Fire

Dear Church Family, please keep Allison Miller, Travis Trick, Ryan Dunbar and all the staff, volunteers and the other 90-some special-needs individuals who go to Hope Springs Farm in your prayers. Recently the barn burnt to the ground with 2 miniature horses, 2 bunnies, a few dozen baby chicks and farm equipment in it. The loss of the barn and some of the animals is devastating for all of them.
If anyone would like to donate money to replace what was lost that insurance doesn’t cover, you can send it to: Hope Springs Farm, 201 Trail Road, Hershey, PA. 17033. You may also see Sharon Immel or call her with any questions: (717-712-0991). There is a link on the farm’s homepage for donations as well.
