November 2-9 Trinity Mission Trip: This year, 14 members of our congregation, 8 adults and 6 youth are planning to go to Guatemala. Their goal is to not only share the good news and love of Jesus Christ with those who are in need, but also to encourage and care for the missionaries who are serving there. Our whole congregation can be a part of this endeavor and take ownership of this trip by helping financially and praying for those who go. Please also pray for the ministry and if able donate items that are most needed there. You will find a list in the Atrium of items we are collected during the month of August.
