Again this year Trinity will partner with the Lenoir City Family Resource Center to be part of the Santa's Helper outreach to children in the Lenoir City School System. We have chosen to sponsor one family with four (4) children: three girls aged 8, 14 and 16 and one son aged 12. To do so we need your help. We would like to designate $150 for each child. We have been given a list of their needs and wants and will be shopping for the children later this month. If you would like to participate as a Santa's Helper, please write Santa's Helper on the memo line of your check or offering envelope. We promise there will be smiles and delight when the children open their gifts this Christmas. Last year over 450 children received gifts. Thank you for sharing in the spirit of the season, and reaching out to many of the children in our community.
As we move from celebrating our October time together with Fred and Libby, the Outreach Committee has a few more opportunities for our congregation to celebrate and share with the Children in both November and December. On both Sunday, November 5th and Sunday, December 3rd (Meet and Greet Sundays) you will be able to sign individual cards sending greetings from Trinity to our children currently living in Uganda. The Outreach Committee has made cards for each of our children with their picture and name on the front. We will have a table set up where You, Trinity, can come and say hello and send wishes to not only the children you are currently praying for but, hopefully, to some of the other children as well because one can't receive too many hellos.
Then on Sunday, December 10th following our worship service all of us present that morning will gather in front of the altar for a Trinity picture. This picture, along with our signed cards, will be sent with Fred and Libby as they travel to be with the children in January. This is a wonderful way to say hello and introduce ourselves to our 36 children. We also plan to send a picture of our two (2) mounted boards with the children's pictures, so they can see how we here at Trinity honor them each week.

Once again this year Good Samaritan will be distributing Thanksgiving Baskets to families in our community. If you would like to be part of this outreach, a basket is $25.00. Please write Thanksgiving Basket on the memo line of your check or offering envelope. Last year Good Samaritan provided over 600 local families with baskets full of supplies for a "thankful" holiday meal and helped to create a family holiday memory.
The Puerto Rico School System has been closed for the remainder of the school year. Many of the school children will be sent to several places in the continental US to continue their school year. Central Florida is one of the places where the children will be sent. The Florida Conference has accepted the offer from our Holston Conference through the Holston Conference Disaster Response Ministries to provide UMCOR School Kits to the displaced Puerto Rican children.
If you would like to participate in this outreach, please write Puerto Rico on the memo line of your check or offering envelope. 100% of all you give will go directly to providing the school kits. And the children say "Thank You" for remembering them and showing that you care about Puerto Rico.
