School Supplies for Lenoir City Elementary
Habitat for Humanity Work Crew Lunches: Trinity has a new opportunity to be in service to those serving our community and we're excited. Tony Gibbons, Executive Director of our Loudon Co. Habitat for Humanity, contacted Pastor Kristie recently regarding our ability to feed their work crews various days. We said “of course”, and four (4) days are now scheduled. Wanda Queener has agreed to coordinate those meals. The work crews are Concord UMC volunteers. They will also have the use of our parking lot many additional days. Sammie Shanks, Volunteer Coordinator, will meet with the Outreach Committee to talk about the work being done in our county and how Trinity could continue to participate. It looks like we're beginning a new relationship!
LCHS Graduation Project: Again this year Trinity has contributed $100.00 to our LCHS 2018 Project Graduation. This annual event enables our graduates to have a fun and safe graduation night. This is an all night event where seniors are able to celebrate together and win monetary prizes and items they need for college and beyond. Food and games and fun provided for all.
Camp In The Community: This summer, Trinity will host Camp in the Community as an outreach ministry to families in our community. It is a week-long day camp program for children in poverty, and is a ministry of our Holston Conference Camp and Retreat Ministries. The camp operates in partnership with Trinity. We will be providing a high-quality summer camp experience to those who could not otherwise afford to attend summer camp, by sharing the gospel and offering the children opportunities to grow, learn and succeed.
We know that to remain vital, congregations must work to reach the communities surrounding the church, building trust and awareness of the issues affecting those in our community. We're excited about this opportunity to reach out to our neighbor children. Our camp will be the week of June 25th. We'll keep you posted as we continue to develop our preparations for this very fun week.
36 Children of South Sudan: When Fred and Libby Dearing were with us in October, we talked about various ways Trinity could continue to reach out and lift up our 36 children now living in Uganda. We learned that Heather Hayes, a member of Concord UMC and Chair of the Grace Home for Children Board, coordinates a program to supply books for the chil-
dren. We have been in conversation with Heather, and excited about our new opportunity to reach out and connect with our beautiful children. We will let you know soon how you can participate in this outreach.
Free Summer Lunch Program: Walter, Wilma and Jo Alison have met with Mary Harding and Vicky Bivens of the Lenoir City Schools to discuss our participation in last summer's free lunch program. They and those who oversee this project were very pleased with our participation and the results of your efforts. We have been asked to continue this outreach again this coming summer. Based on your evaluations, you said wholeheartedly this program was important, and so we told Mary and Vicky, yes, we would continue this outreach again next summer.
Thank you Trinity for caring and sharing your time and energy and your gifts to be in service to others.
