ANNOUNCEMENTS:
COUNCIL PRESIDENT’S UPDATE Happy New Year! We start out the new year with needing to keep vigilant and needing to maintain social distancing and keeping everyone safe and healthy. At the time this article was written, the extension of restrictions has been extended until January 4, 2021. We will continue to keep the congregation updated to any changes in schedule or impacts as new guidelines come out. Traditionally we have a congregational meeting at the end of January. However, due to restrictions and wanting to keep everyone safe, and the possibility of restrictions on gatherings being further extended into January, the council has decided to defer a congregational meeting until such time that it is allowed under the
guidelines and we feel that it is safe to do so. The council has reviewed the budget for 2021 and the overall budget being adopted remains flat for the incoming year. 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. Happy New Year! SOCIAL MINISTRIES/CHRISTIAN CONCERNS Thank you so much for your donations to the Help Food Warehouse. If you want to continue to make food donations we will be happy to deliver them for you. We will start the year with needs for the Emergency Women’s Support Shelter. A list of items needed can be found on the bulletin board in the narthex for you to take shopping. Thank you all so much for your generous donations. We
were just informed our local Community House is in great need of towels. If you can donate slightly used or new towels it would be greatly appreciated. You can put them in the plastic tubs in the narthex and we will get them delivered. Milky the Cow for Community House is coming up in March. We will be doing it different this year due to the virus by giving them the money and they will do the buying. If you would like to help you can make a donation marked ‘Milky the Cow’ on the notes line. We pray you will all have a happy & healthy New Year. 2021 OFFERING BOOKS Offering envelopes are available for pickup in the foyer. Please let us know if you did not see your name and we will get one to you. Trinity is now set up to allow you to give your
offering online! We have had several requests for this option to be available. After researching different ways to accomplish this, we will be using Tithe.ly as the company handling the transactions in a secure, safe and flexible process. The forms of payment are credit card, debit card, and ACH (eg. bank account). You can set it up to give a onetime offering or set up recurring offering gifts (every month on the 15 th of the month as an example) to be processed to the church. To give your offering online, go to www.tithe.ly/give to create your account and start the process for giving online. ONLINE SERVICE All of our services are available online if you search Trinity Lutheran Church Longview on youtube.com or check our facebook page for direct links.

SHOEBOX MINISTRY Last month we delivered a large lot of shoebox ministry items to our local Community House. 40 knit hats, 65 pairs of men’s socks, 25 pairs of children’s socks, and another 60 pairs of women’s socks, along with 20 bars of soap, a dozen bottles of shampoo, and a case of handwarmers were all delivered.
