Announcements Week of 01/17/2021

Is the Church Office Open? While there may be some staff in the office during the week, many are working at home to limit the amount of traffic in and out of the building (for Covid-19 cleaning purposes). So, technically, the office is not yet open. If you need to get into the building during the week, please call ahead to make sure someone is in the office.  If you   leave a message, someone will call you back as soon as possible.

Morning Kairos "Morning Kairos" is a weekly video series put together by our seminary resident, Camden McKuras. There are three videos a week that get posted at 6:00 am on Facebook and Instagram on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The word "Kairos" is Greek for “time.” But unlike clock time, this means a time to decide, or the opportune time. These are 5 minute or less devotional videos that give you the opportune time to start your day with a Bible verse, prayer, and question to help you think about God. Give it a listen sometime! A bonus: Camden tries to follow along with the sermon series!

Care Link:  Our Trinity Fellowship Care Link group provides information on needs "IN our communities" for individuals or groups/small groups to Serve Him by serving others.  If you are interested in helping with needs that may arise in our community, please call the office or email for more information.

Missing Any Jewelry?  Several jewelry items have been found and are in the office.   If you have misplaced a ring, bracelet, watch or earring, please call the office.  We may have found what you have lost!
