THANK YOU FROM THE FINDING FORWARD COMMITTEE 

The Finding Forward Committee would like to thank you for your generous support to the finding forward campaign.

At the end of August, we have received     $ 40,100 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             $ 40,100 has been received since October 2018              toward our three year goal of raising $125,000.

We have worked on various windows and doors.

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.

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.

 


   

PROJECT HELP

 

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.

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 is 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.

FINANCIAL REPORT

 

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!

     


 

Those of you who are in need of Offering Envelopes, there is a sign-up sheet on the table in the Narthex.
