GRANDPARENTS' DAY MISSION PROJECT
Sunday, September 10, is National Grandparents; Day. Trinity has a small population of members who are shut-ins. A few other members are currently recovering from illness and are unable to attend Sunday services. Please help us surprise them with some little treats. Simply drop off some listed items in the “Bushels of Love” basket at the welcome desk at either campus. Items will be placed in pretty little gift bags and then delivered to each of our shut-ins and those who are ill.
Some treat suggestions would be: Beanie Baby or small stuffed toy, hard candy, lifesavers, pens, small note cards, post-its, memo pad, tea/coffee bags, snack-sized package of cookies or crackers, comb, emery boards, nail polish, chap stick, pocket or sample size tissues, hand lotion, baby powder, and after shave. For more information contact Nancy Gavin 715-386-3513.

LINC TWIN CITIES
As of July, Trinity will be supporting Linc Twin Cities. Linc is an organization that works to restore communities to Christ. They do this by training disciples of Jesus who make disciples, plant new churches, and work to transform their own communities through the power of the Gospel lived out in service to their neighbors. For more information, contact Ben Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DATA CLEAN UP
We are eager to introduce Realm to the congregation. Prior to releasing it, we would like to have current and accurate information so that the system proves useful to everyone who may utilize it. Please e-mail us with your new address, phone number or e-mail address if you have changed any of those within the last year. Also - entry into our new system will require a date of birth. Our current system is missing many members’ dates of birth. If you feel that you have never provided that to our church, please contact us with that information either by phone or e-mail. Additionally, if there have been any changes within the members of your family, such as a marriage, child moving out, or an addition of a new child, we would like to update that information also. We appreciate any help you can give us in maintaining accurate data. Please e-mail Lisa Mae at email@example.com or call 715-386-9313. Thank you.
Please continue to save and turn in your Family Fresh grocery store receipts, (Hudson location only!) and the pink Box Tops For Education labels. There are collection bins at the Family Center, Downtown location, & the Academy.
PLEASE NOTE: The Campbell’s Soup Label program that many of us have grown up with has been discontinued. Also, we are not collecting milk jug caps at this time.
Again, thank you all very much for blessing our academy and daycare with these two simple items – truly, it does add up and make a difference! If you have any questions regarding these ongoing fundraisers, please contact Lori Woltman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-781-8411.
