TRINITY EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH
TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
NEW DIRECTORIES Our church directory will be updated this month, please call or email with your updates.  As I write this article for May’s newsletter, there is no official word about a lifting or extension of the stay at home and social distancing restrictions currently in place.  As such, we will continue to be careful, cautious and be practical in our day-to-day lives to be safe and well for each of you and the congregation as part of the body of Christ. As new announcements and guidelines become available, Pastor and the church council will make decisions for when it is safe for Trinity to reopen its doors and resume activities and how that will occur safely. We will update you further as new guidelines come about. I would also encourage you to
continue to call one another and check in with your brothers and sisters in Christ, our church family, and remember one another in prayer.  I have heard several reports that many of you have done that and I thank you for that. Each of you are in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be in my prayers in the days and weeks ahead. If you need some assistance or know of someone that does, please reach out to Pastor Craig or call me at 360-232- 8186. Thank you to all of you that have mailed in offering to the office.  Your generosity and faithful stewardship is appreciated and help the church continue to function. The Peace of Christ be with you all. Tom Huffman, Council President
WORSHIP AND INFORMATION While we are in this hiatus from worshiping in the church building take time to worship and pray and study from home.  If you are online check the Trinity Facebook and webpage for updates and maybe a video message from the pastor. Also check the churches phone message for updates on worship. The church office will be closed during this time.  If you need to leave a message for the office that does not need to be answered right away leave a message.  We will be checking the church messages every few days.  If you need more immediate help call pastor Craig.
FAMILY PROMISE This is an update regarding Trinity’s next scheduled host week June 7-14. Due to the COVID19 Pandemic, Family Promise children and parents are housed and given meals in what is called “static shelter mode” in the former Kelso Presbyterian Church.  Each area host church and support churches (during their scheduled Family Promise week) provide hot evening dinners, breakfast and lunch groceries, food paper supplies, and two teams (two persons per team) to serve the dinners.  This is what Trinity and our support churches, St Stephen’s and Evangel Fellowship, are asked to do June 7-14.  If you provided meals during our previous host weeks please consider helping again, if possible.  “Rotational Shelter” in area churches will only begin again when Governor Inslee allows.  Thank you for praying for this ministry for homeless children and their families.  Questions, comments: please contact Connie Foss, 360-957-5137.
No calendar for April. Have a safe and socially distant Easter!
