TLC Learning Center Update -December

By Krista Hartley, TLC LC Board Member & TLC President

The TLC Learning Center is ending the year strong. We have many blessing to be thankful for: enrollment is full, staff is happy and stable under Nikki’s leadership, the new playground turf installation is complete, and financially we are able to add to our giving to the church.
Nikki has been busy preparing the Center for our annual state survey. Recently she completed a minor upgrade to the women's restroom which included new faucets, toilets seats, paint, new seal on toilet, and a buff/wax of the floor.
We welcome the congregation to our Christmas Concert on Thursday, December 14, at 6 p.m. in the church sanctuary. All the staff at TLC LC would like to wish everyone at Trinity a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Kids Club is Back for the School Year!

Kids club is off and running again! We are in need of Volunteers to occasionally help Prep and Serve or Clean-Up after Meals. This fabulous you-don't-want-to-miss opportunity is a behind-the-scenes job! There’s no planning necessary, just time and talent! We are looking for folks to only serve once or twice this fall! (A great opportunity for those that might Worship on Wednesday nights to stay late after Worship and help clean up for about 30 minutes.) Do you have one Wednesday evening between now and Christmas? You could even come for part of the night!  Prep and meal service happens from about 5 to 6:15 p.m., then Clean-Up from about 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Please Contact Rebecca Smith to get on the rotation at 208-771-3308 or coyotecabin@mac.com . And, THANKS in advance!

ALSO…the Kids Club Pantry is looking to be filled. There are Snag-A-Tag's on the wall by the Reid St. Entrance. Snag-a-Tag if you are able. Buy what we need and return the food to the kitchen, marked Kids Club. All sorts of food items are needed. Thanks for serving kids! Contact Rebecca Smith at (208) 771-3308 with questions.

Facility Maintenance Reserve Fund

Now that the gym repair goal has been met, we welcome additional contributions to be placed into a new Facility Maintenance Reserve Fund that has been established. There are a number of unbudgeted maintenance issues which will continue into the next year and an anticipated sanctuary roof replacement is needed within the next few years which could exceed $50,000. The Facility Maintenance Reserve Fund will reduce the need for a future capital campaign.
