Need some good news? Check out all the blessings that Trinity has experienced over the past few weeks:
Trinity Transportation Ministry: Many thanks to those who contributed toward the Easter offering for Trinity’s “new” used bus. We exceeded the amount our “donor match” was seeking! Our contributions (including one large gift) to date are $23,140. A team is assembling to sift through the current bus options to make the final decision for purchase. If you have skills related to vehicles and mechanics and would be willing to assist the team, contact Trustee chair, Frank Cederquist at firstname.lastname@example.org
PPP Loan/Grant: Trinity was awarded a Payback Protection Payment Loan. Susie Riley, Trinity’s Financial Secretary, and several Trinity board members worked on this process. Please thank them for their work which is a tremendous help to our church in this difficult time.
Connect Through Tech Grant: Trinity was awarded a Connect Through Tech Grant from Center for Congregations. This grant has allowed us to purchase a video camera, tripod and accessories, a webcam, and an outdoor sound system and accessories. These devices will help us in our ministry and outreach during COVID and into the future. Thanks to Morris DuBose and Lisa Nielsen who provided assistance in the preparation of this grant.
Like Us On Facebook: Would you like to continue to invite others to Trinity during COVID? Do you want to help our church grow? Do you want to support those who are struggling? Then, like us on Facebook and share the sermons, music, serving stories, and 20 at Twilight. Many are struggling during this difficult time. Provide a source of spiritual support by “liking” and “sharing” Trinity’s virtual and online resources.
Brickwork: While we were all away, Ziolkowski completed brickwork on the final side of our church building! During worship on June 14 we will celebrate this wonderful accomplishment. Please express thanks to:
Welcome Associate Pastor Suzanne Clemenz: We are pleased to announce that, beginning July 1, Suzanne Clemenz will be appointed as associate pastor (one quarter time) to Trinity to focus on the ministry areas of shut-in visitation and caring ministries. Pastor Suzanne is a North Carolina native. She answered the call to ministry four years ago and previously served as associate pastor at St. Andrew's UMC. Suzanne is enrolled in the Indiana Local Pastors Course of Study. She has degrees in English and women's and gender studies and was a doctoral student in the humanities at Purdue. She works at the YWCA focusing on services to domestic violence survivors and has long been engaged in social justice issues. Suzanne and her husband, Brent, reside in Lafayette with their three sons.
Pastoral Schedule: Depending upon COVID, Pastor Tracey anticipates ocular reconstructive surgery to take place in early July. If that surgery does take place as scheduled, preaching, pastoral and administrative duties will be covered by Melissa and Pastor Suzanne. Please watch the weekly E-blasts for updates.
