                      We closed out 2019 with a bang.                         Due to the positive response from our faithful servants,          we eliminated our deficit position in the General Fund                                and broke even for the year.                                       This allows us to begin 2020 with a balance                in the bank of $25,000.




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

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. 

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.

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!
