Kroger's Community Rewards Campaign
Benefiting Good Samaritan
Good Samaritan has become a beneficiary of Kroger's Community Rewards campaign. Kroger Plus shoppers can designate Good Samaritan as a charity that will then receive financial support from Kroger.
It is very easy to sign up as shown in the KCR Flyer.
Once you sign up for the program, then Good Samaritan will receive benefits from Kroger whenever your Kroger Plus card is used.
Flyers are located on the table in the Narthex.
SUNDAY SCHOOL WING UPDATE
The insulation on the Sunday School Wing has been completed.
We are now looking for volunteers for flooring and miscellaneous items.
Also, any amount that you can give for the renovations would be helpful.
PRAYER REQUEST FORMS
We are implementing a new form for Prayer Requests. The forms are located on the Welcome Desk and on the table in the Narthex.
We hope by using these new forms, we will be able to manage the Prayer List more efficiently.
SCHEDULING FOR CALENDAR
If you have an event that you would like to have at Trinity, please notify the office staff. To submit your event, you may call the office, e-mail the information to the office, or visit Trinity's website where there is a "Submit Calendar Item" tab found under the "Calendar" section.

GriefShare is a special group for individuals grieving the loss of a loved one.
It is a nondenominational program that features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics.
Each session is self-contained so joining the group at any time is appropriate. Each cycle encompasses 13 weeks.
GriefShare sessions began at Trinity Lutheran Church on Wednesday, August 5th at 10:00 am. These are provided at no cost to the participants who are attending the sessions at Trinity.
Pamphlets are available in the church office and on the table in the Narthex giving information regarding this session. Please feel free to share with others.
GriefShare sessions are also offered at these churches. Please contact them for their schedules.

STEWARDSHIP AND THANKSGIVING
Electronic giving can be accessed on the Trinity Lutheran website by pressing the "giving" button at the top of the page. Electronic giving is easy to setup or modify and can provide a status report on activity for the year.
Or, you may click below to be connected to our online giving page.
It's convenient for you and provides much-needed financial consistency for the church. It is a secure site provided by Vanco services that is part of the simply giving program.
Through July, expenses have exceeded receipts by $ 13,352. Some expenses such as utilities, youth and insurance are incurred in the first half of the year, so it is not unusual to start off the year having expenses exceed receipts. With your continued support, we hope to break-even by year-end.
Regarding Electronic Giving
We have had 14 families sign up for electronic giving through Trinity's website. Thank you for your response. Signing up is easy and is similar to how many people pay their utility bills. If you need any help, Jim Peissig can assist you.
Those of you who are in need of Offering Envelopes, there is a sign-up sheet on the table in the Narthex.
Please sign with your envelope number so we may get new ones to you.
