Dear Friends,

I wanted to thank all of you again for the many cards, notes, phone calls, visits, and most of all, the prayers offered in my behalf.  Many of you even took the time and effort to send mulitple cards; I read and cherish each one.  All of you have a special place in my thoughts and in my heart, and I know that your thoughts and prayers, with the help of God, pulled me through this terrible nightmare.

An extra special thank you to my quilting buddies for the gifts to help keep me occupied and for the special notes from each and every one of you.

It is so wonderful to be back in church wih my church family.  I'm happily situated with my son Greg and his family now and have high hopes of a successful and speedy recovery though the healing process always goes much slower than we would prefer. 

May the Lord continue to bless you and your Trinity family.

Thanks again,

Ann Byrom

At the end of July, we have received     $ 36,200 toward our goal of raising $ 125,000 for facility upgrades.  

Because of your generous giving, we have replaced an HVAC unit that failed and have made repairs to the roof.  Lights are being replaced in Luther Hall which provide a better quality light at a reduced cost.  

We have worked on windows and doors.

          The Finding Forward Campaign for the update and            renovation of our facility is receiving a good response as             $ 36,200 has been received since October 2018              toward our three year goal of raising $125,000.   

           We have replaced an HVAC unit that failed and                      have made repairs to the roof that was leaking.          Lights are being replaced in Luther Hall which provide a better quality light at a reduced cost.

Next, we are working on various windows and doors.

             Again, thank you for your generous giving.                                                                  



Although we have a paid childcare attendant every week, we do schedule a volunteer assistant.                         

If you would be able to assist with childcare, please let us know.  

Depending on the number of children in the nursery on Sundays, you may not be needed and can attend worship.



There is a box in the hallway for the collection of used eyeglasses.  

This is an ongoing service project of the Lion's Club.

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. 



For KCR Flyer Click Here.




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.





The Good Samaritan Program of Tullahoma administers Project HELP funds and works with other public and private agencies to see that those elderly and handicapped in need receive adequate help.


You may contribute to this fund by adding extra amounts to your utility bill through TUB.






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.

We now have 29 families who have signed up for automatic giving.  Our website has access to the automatic giving process.  You may want to consider simplifying the giving process.  It is similar to automating the payment of utility or phone bills.  If you need help in setting up an automated payment, please see Jim Peissig.  

Thanks for all you do!
