During this time when we are physically apart and seeking to find ways to connect creatively, the church and its staff are working hard to be the church in the world and provide opportunities for ministry, connection, and worship.

Even though we are unable to gather together, the mission and ministry of the church continues. And with that mission and ministry comes cost. During this time, we graciously ask for your help in continuing to fund our mission.

If you are able, we ask that you continue to give your offering regularly.
– Offerings can be mailed by placing a stamp on the offering envelope; the envelopes are already addressed to the church.
– If you would rather not mail your offering, you can leave your offering envelope in the Church Drop Box, which is located next to the lower office door at the church.
– Offerings can be given by setting up to have your bank mail the church a check.
–  Offerings can be given electronically through tithe.ly.  You can set up to have your offering given through a checking account, debit card, or credit card.  The direct link to give online is: https://tithe.ly/give?c=863719
– Offerings can be combined to give your donation monthly or bi-weekly.

If you find yourself in a difficult financial situation due to this time of crisis, and cannot give as you would like, please know that we understand and support you in meeting the needs of yourself and your family first!

We thank you for your generosity and your commitment to the mission of Trinity!

 

COMMUNITY OF FAITH-Hello, I am writing to let you know that we as members of Trinity Lutheran Church are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. We understand how difficult these times are for everyone. We are apart from our usual activities, and we cannot see our family, friends, and neighbors. This little note is to let you know that if there is anything we can do for you during this time, we are here. We have volunteers that have offered to go to the store or pick up prescriptions. If you are in need of assistance, please call the church office 410-848-8923 to let us know how we may help you. (since the church office is closed, please leave a message on the answering machine-wait for 6 rings and answering machine will come on with welcome message) Perhaps you just need a friendly voice or someone to chat with for a while. Just know that we are here for you.  Leave your message if you would like a “Friendly phone chat”, and someone will call you back. Also, if you have access to the internet, please visit www.TrinityWired.org, to hear and to see Sunday worship online, presented by Pastor Melissa Helfer. May God bless you and keep you well and safe, Ann Boyles, RN, Community Faith Ministry.

 

PARISH NURSE NOTE-The presentation of the therapy dogs is postponed until a later date. Thank to Judy Klinger for offering to bring her dog(s) to explain how dogs are used. We are so disappointed but hopefully it won’t be too long before we can reschedule in the not too distant future.

THANK YOU-To our friends at Trinity.  Thank you so very much for your generous gift of $850 to the Community of St. Dysmas!  You are enabling us to continue to bring the Good News of Tod’s love and forgiveness to our incarcerated brothers and sisters who need to hear that message.  Through gifts like yours, lives are being transformed. AND—the warm welcome at Trinity made my heart glad!  You all are a great bunch of folks!  God Bless, Pastor Susan
