A Way Forward

Trinity's Honey-Do Jar List
I imagine most of us have heard of that imaginary jar holding the list of the requests we make of our spouses with regards to household tasks. Well, our church “household” also has many tasks that need to be done. Our online “Trinity Honey-Do Jar" lists current maintenance needs: jobs that can be completed in a 1-2 hour framework on a flexible schedule with minimal skills and supplies. If you click on a link to volunteer for a task, Bob Lilly (our volunteer maintenance “team captain”) will follow-up with you by phone or email to insure you understand the task and have all necessary supplies. You will need to complete your task within two weeks of your sign-up date.
