Announcements for the week of March 29
Lent: Join us throughout Lent for worship on Wednesdays at 2:00pm and 7:00pm. We will not have a fellowship meal at this time.
God’s Gifts: As one of God’s stewards, we have been entrusted with life and life’s resources and given the privilege of responsibly and joyfully managing those for Him. As children of God, we are encouraged to give cheerfully our first-fruit, as well as giving in all areas of life. Another way of thinking about this issue is to remember that all things, including money, belong to God, and the real question is how much of what belongs to Him are we going to keep for ourselves and how much are we going to use to fulfill His purposes? How much are you giving now? Can you increase your giving on a regular basis? King David said it very well in 1 Chronicles 29:14 “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
Did you Know: Our teachers have been hard at work this past week preparing lessons for home-centered instruction for our students during the next few weeks while we take precautions due to COVID-19. Much of the work that will be completed at home by our students is possible thanks to the technology our school has been able to purchase over the last several years. Thank you, Trinity family, for supporting the many different fundraisers our church and school holds every year. Thank You, Lord, for Trinity Lutheran Church and School.
Website Resources: For those staying at home due to COVID-19, we have a listing on our website of resources for you to stay connected. Visit church.trinitycp.org/covid/ to view free or downloadable Bible studies, podcasts, daily devotionals, Sunday School lessons, apps, children’s materials, discussion groups, and much more.
Birthday Greetings: Les Luebcke will be celebrating his 90th birthday on April 3rd. The family is hoping his church family can fill his mailbox with happy birthday wishes. Please mail cards to: Les Luebcke 1012 Seneca Dr. Crown Point IN 46307.
Trinity Cares: Please consider adding a few items to your grocery list and drop them off at church to bless those in need. At this time here are the items we are running low on: toilet paper, hand soap, tomato sauce/diced tomatoes, ketchup, flour, sugar, canned chicken/meat, canned vegetables, soup (can be Ramen), cereal, boxed potatoes, syrup, pancake mix, canned chili, and rice (plain or flavored). Trinity Cares will continue to serve the community in these next few weeks.
Trinity: Love in Deed Shirt Day: We want to stay connected to our school family! On Wednesdays during the COVID-19 break, wear your theme shirt or Trinity apparel. Our staff & teachers will do the same. Then share photos of your family at home in your Love in Deed shirts with your Trinity family! Share on our Facebook page or email [email protected] We want to see you guys!
Trinity Sociables: Our committee has decided to suspend our monthly luncheons due to the possible spreading of the CoronaVirus at our meeting places. We believe this is the best decision at this time in the interest of health concerns for our members. We have cancelled our March 26th meeting and suspended all future meetings until we get more information on the spread of the CoronaVirus. If you have any questions, please call Don Wigley at 219-374-9451.
