Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the Energy Boost Brunch on June 17 and 18. Approximately 215 students were served over the 2 days.

From the Stewardship Committee: as we all take time away to enjoy the summer months, please remember to continue your offering during June, July and August. Our ministry continues and the building is open and busy; we pay our taxes and insurance premiums during the summer. If you’re not here on a Sunday, you may drop off your envelope yourself Mon-Thurs mornings; or drop it in the mail slot by the front door; or consider PAR (pre-authorized remittance) that automatically sends your offering every month from your bank account. We are grateful for all gifts given to Trinity.
