ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Social Ministries/WELCA Christian Concerns To wrap up summer we gave money to the ‘Fill the Canoe’ program at Red Canoe Credit Union who will match donations going to support local school needs. We will start collecting food for the Help Food Warehouse starting October. Thank you for your continued support. -Social Ministries September 2020 Council President Update At the time that I am writing this newsletter article for the September newsletter, Cowlitz County remains in a modified phase 2 and it does not seem likely that will be changing any time soon. 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. I give thanks to God that our sanctuary can remain to be open, even on the current limited social distance basis, and allow some of us to worship together and be together in person. We will continue to record services to allow those of you that need to stay at home and stay safe and worship from home, and remind you that you are in our thoughts and prayers and with you in spirit. There remain a lot of unknowns ahead of us as we move into the Fall schedule but our ministry to Serve Christ and serving those in need and love one another remain. Thank you to Connie Foss for coordinating the volunteers for Family Promise for our “host” week in September and to those of you supporting this
ministry. The Worship and Music committee will continue to meet as they have been, planning ahead to keep meaningful worship and music each week. The Council also regularly meets via Zoom to conduct the needed business and operations of the Church functioning. If you have any special needs or requests, have any questions or concerns, or are in in need of assistance or know of someone that does, please contact the church office or call me at 360-232-8186. - Tom Huffman, Council President Family Promise September 6-13 is Trinity’s next week to host homeless children and their families at the Day Center in Kelso.
