First Friday In February

Next week will be our First Friday for the month of February, which means we are ready for a new service project!
Since it's the same weekend as the Super Bowl, we are changing it up to "Soup-er Bowl" weekend at Trinity! Students can bring in cans of soup on Friday, Feb. 5, that will be donated to the CCS Food Pantry. The preference is for hearty soups that are healthy and filling. We will have some fun, too, by wearing our favorite team jersey or shirt on Friday and jeans. We will collect at weekend worship services too, with a goal of 1,000 cans! Let's do it!

Chapel Offerings

Thank you for contributing to the Guatemala mission project through January chapel offerings. We are able to contribute $450 through our gifts!

February chapel offerings will be donated to Faith Mission, an organization in Elkhart that ministers to the homeless community.

We encourage students to routinely set aside an offering for God's work each week and nurture the habit of bringing it in regularly. Learning stewardship at an early age will help shape their hearts and thoughts for the future!
