CROP Hunger Walk

(Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty)
Harrisburg Capitol, N. Third Street
Sunday, October 20th, 2019 at 1:30

Trinity has been a CROP Walk participant since at least 1980.  Today, well over 2,000 communities across the country join in more that 1,600 CROP Walks sponsored by Church World Service each year.  This year marks the 48th year of the Harrisburg CROP Walk! I am happy to say that last year Trinity had a great group of walkers, and we walked for over $1,500.  I also need to stress that Trinity has remained consistent and very generous in their giving, and donations are ultimately what is needed.  But I would love company! There are many ways you can help with this year’s CROP Walk – pray for the walk, sponsor a walker, or even join me in walking as part of your gift.  Thank you – Mel Eyer (for more info call or text me at - 717 645-1117)

Thought for the Week from the Celebrate from Heart and Spirit Group: 

“Grace is simply another word for God’s tumbling, rumbling reservoir of strength and protection...anxiety still comes for certain.  The globe still heats up; wars still flare up; the economy acts up.  Disease, calamity, and trouble populate your world.  But they don’t control it! Grace does."
Max Lucado

Prayer Request?

Fill out a blue prayer request slip found in the pew racks in the sanctuary. Place your slip in the prayer box found in the hallway across from the mailboxes.
