  • Tender Mercies: We are in need of volunteers for February 7. Has your group served in the past but is now uncomfortable gathering to cook? Here’s an idea for more volunteers to serve from home: 
    • Volunteer group of (home) cooks: 
      • Plan a menu (ex. Lasagna, green beans, rolls) 
      • Each group member agrees to make enough of one food item for 45 meals (ex. rolls), or 23 meals (ex. Lasagna) with another person making the other 23 meals. 
      • Group members individually drop off their ready to eat food at the church at a pre-planned time. 
    • Volunteer servers: 
      • Receive the ready to eat food at the church. 
      • Portion it out for 45 meals. 
      • Deliver it to Tender Mercies.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  • The Trinity Office will be closed January 18, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
  • Trinity has a new Trinity Milford Community Group on Facebook! We would love for you to join and help us provide HOPE and SUPPORT throughout the Milford Community.
  • Submissions for the February newsletter are due by Sunday, January 17. 
  • Anyone wanting a list of the 2021 committees, please contact the office. 
  • Opportunities to give to God, without in-person worship, through the church are by mail, dropping off donations to the church office, or through our online giving ways.  Thank you for your continuing generosity!
  • Various Stream Team opportunities are available. Training will be provided, limited time commitments. 
    • Our sound team for Sunday services works relentlessly, everyday and evening getting all together for Sunday services. All involved now is not just a simple thing as running the sound board. They are preparing for the Live services, mixing of songs for Sundays. There is computer work needed. The church is in great need for help with the sound team. Experience is not needed. There are so many avenues of help needed.  Please mark on your pew card if you are willing to help. This is an important part of every Sunday service!

 Any meetings taking place are with physical distancing and precautions in place.
