We at Trinity have an exciting month ahead with two (2) new projects, Our Free Summer Lunch Program for Neighborhood Children and collecting New and Gently Used Books for our Pre-K to 3rd grade children for the Lenoir City Family Resource Center. We're going to be busy and have some fun too.
Summer Lunch Program for Neighborhood Children: On June 5th, Trinity will begin serving a free lunch to children 18 years and younger Monday through Friday, noon to 1pm, in our Fellowship Hall. 14 individuals have participated in the training and many of you have also agreed to be part of the "helpers" needed each day. Thank you to all!!! We will still be seeking additional helpers, so please let us know if you are interested. We're excited to be one of the three sites for serving food in our community this summer. Trinity is truly making a difference in the lives of many this summer as no child should ever go hungry. Thank you to all of you for supporting this out-reach.
New and Gently Used Books for our Pre-K to 3rd grade Children for the Lenoir City Family Resource Center: This June and July Trinity will be collecting new and gently used books for the Lenoir City Family Resource Center, Pre-K to 3rd grade. The Center is in the process this summer of constructing a Book Nook, with assistance from Walmart. When parents come with their children for meetings and consultation, the children will now be able to visit the Book Nook to enjoy a book and then take a book home with them to become part of their own library. This first book could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship lasting their lifetime. None of these books will be used in the classroom. All are for the Family Resource Center. And, books can be purchased for a nominal price at both the Good Neighbors Shoppe and McKays. This is a wonderful opportunity that can make such a difference in a child's life.
Fire Safety Materials for Pre-K to 5th Grade Children: The Outreach Committee voted to donate $90.00 to the Lenoir City Fire Department to underwrite fire safety education materials for 40 children in the Lenoir City Schools and Daycares, Pre-K to 5th grade. Awareness and prevention knowledge are important for our young folk.
Health Kits - 2017 Holston Hands On Mission Project: We are pleased to share that Trinity purchased eight (8) Health Kits for the 2017 Holston Hands-On Mission Project. They will be delivered to the Ishe Anesu Project for Underprivileged Children in Mutare, Zimbabwe. Your support continues to enable numerous children to receive the assistance they need to survive and thrive in a very difficult situation. Thank you for your continuing support again this year.
South Sudan Children: It was good to read last month how many of you have been impacted by your prayers for our children. And wonderful also to read Libby Dearing's words on how our prayers are impacting the children and their lives. And we're excited to share that Fred and Libby Dearing will again be with us on Sunday, October 8th as we continue to grow our relationship with them and the children. Please mark that date in your calendar and plan to join us for worship and for fellowship time following too. It will be good.
THANK YOU all for your continuous generosity and your caring in reaching our and responding to others in need.
