Thank you for a great year as your Community Engagement Coach. We’ve started several new community ministries including Family to Family, the community garden, and regular midweek small groups.

The transformation of the parlor will be complete in the next couple weeks. By the time this newsletter is published we will be days away from opening the room. There are still a few pieces of furniture available. Please contact me if you are interested or know of anyone interested. As a reminder we are using funds donated specifically for this renovation and funds from the sale of the education building, which by Discipline can only be used to pay off debt and/or make capital improvements.
The ramp door has been repaired and is now fully functioning. Also, on the south side of the church, we are working to improve the yard space. The labyrinth has been removed and sod is now in its place. Maintenance volunteers along with volunteers from Brianna’s Hope spent many hours cleaning beds and cutting down over grown shrubs. A group of church members and community representatives will meet to work on creating a welcoming outdoor space.
Make sure you visit our youth room, volunteers have given it a fresh new and welcoming look. In addition to serving as our youth room this space will be used during Trinity Fusion.
The bids to restore our bricks on the west elevation have been received and we are currently finalizing the contracts. Work should start by the end of September. Please expect the alley to be closed during the week.
Finally, it is important to me each month to thank the volunteers who have worked so hard maintaining our buildings; your service and dedication is appreciated.
In July, Trinity was awarded a $15,000 Resource Grant from the Center for Congregations. This grant program provides funding to allow congregations to pay for resources to increase their capacity to accomplish a new goal, furthering our mission and values.
In order to make Fusion a success, there are lots of ways you can volunteer!
Are you a Child at Heart?
Who did you look up to when you were a child? Do you like to see the innocent joy of a smiling child? Are you looking to make a big impact in a small and easy way? Volunteer with Fusion Kids! During Fusion Kids, children will learn of the love of God and others and they need adults to help be their examples!
