ANNOUNCEMENTS:
September 2020 Council President Update There still remain a lot of unknowns ahead of us as we move further into the Fall schedule but our ministry to Serve Christ and serving those in need and love one another remain. Thank you for continuing to turn in your offering and allowing the church to continue its mission and operations smoothly. Please keep in your prayers all those in need, and especially for the families of Grace Kennedy and Betty Cliffton. At the time that I am writing this article for the
October newsletter, Cowlitz County remains in a modified phase 2. The state has revised some of the regulations as of 9/21/2020, but the changes for the most part still have us restricted in regards to group activities. It is not until phase 4 that groups larger than 10 will be able to meet under the most recent guidelines. We will continue to monitor the regulations and guidelines as things change and keep you updated to any schedule changes and adjustments to the procedures to keep everyone safe. Due to the restrictions curtailing ministries in their activity, it makes it difficult to plan for next year. In preparation for 2021, rather
than sending each committee a budget worksheet for review to be turned in to the Finance committee, we are basing the budget for 2021 based on 2020’s budget. If you are on a committee and know of a change for 2021, please email me at JTHuffman@Comcast.net or call me at 360-232-8186. Tom Huffman, Council President Raffle Update Living Stones Prison Ministry Annual Fundraiser Raffle Sales have been extended to November 1st so you still have time! You can win $2,020 in 2020.
Vacation Pastor Craig will be on vacation October 5-11. Thank you to Linda Beattie for stepping in during this time. Social Ministries/WELCA Christian Concerns With leftover Milky the Cow money we purchased hamburger for Community House. We will start our holiday food drive collection in October and will continue through November and December. We will donate to the Help Food Warehouse again this year. A list of suggested food items and paper products will be on the bulletin board. Thank you, Social Ministries Family Promise A sincere thank you to volunteers here at Trinity and at Evangel Christian Fellowship (our support church) for providing and serving meals to homeless children and their families in early September at the Kelso Day Center. There are currently two families staying there: a mom and dad with four children, and a mom with two children,
totaling nine. Our next week to serve is November 8-15. That will be our planned fourth week in 2020. The schedule for the Family Promise 2021 host and support churches will be determined later this fall. May God bless all in our communities who pray for and volunteer in so many ways for this ministry! Finance Information for the first 8 months of 2020: Amount of giving needed to fund budget: $94925.00 (8 months) Amount actually received: $78793.00 (8 months) All financial obligations have been met.
