Odds and Ends . . . .

Snacks are Needed!

Did you know that with enough snacks, kids (and adults) can accomplish amazing things?

For several years the congregation has provided granola bars, fruit snacks, peanuts, trail mix… for those needed break times. What a blessing!
The youth group will be active again this summer and will need refueling. Donations of snacks will be used and appreciated!

Sunday School Format Change

Children are invited to Sunday School during the service directly following the Children's Message. Leaders will meet the children in the narthex and they will spend time reading the scripture for the day, participating in activities about the message and learning more about God's Word together. The group will return to service during Sharing of the Peace time so all can partake in Communion as a family. "We will not hide them from their children, we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders He has done." - Psalm 78:4

Trinity Lutheran Feeds, Hosts and Clothes People

Family Promise of North Idaho Lutheran Church of the Master joins with Trinity to host families in Family Promise several times during the year. Many volunteers are needed to support this effort. There are a variety of ways to get involved: Help with set-up and pack up; meal preparation; overnight or evening host; purchase supplies; shop for supplies, do laundry. There are so many wonderful ways to make this program a success.

Food Bank Throughout the year Trinity collects non-perishable food items in the “Caring and Sharing” box in the Atrium and holds several food drives throughout the year. Food is distributed locally by Christ the King Lutheran Church.

We Personally Care This is a drive to collect personal care items that are donated to the community food bank.

Ecumenical Food Kitchen Every two months a team of Trinity members prepares and serves a nutritious meal for many disadvantaged people from the community. Many of these people are unemployed or disabled and might not otherwise have a hot meal. Meals are served at First Presbyterian Church.

Food Baskets Holiday food baskets are provided for families in need at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have also 'adopted' Bryan Elementary - our neighborhood school - and routinely provide Food Baskets on holidays for 4 to 5 families in need.

Lutherhaven Scholarships Every child should be able to go to camp! That’s what the Trinity Lutheran Women believe. Each year they provide scholarships for kids in need.
