Announcements and Activities

Avenues of HopeTRINITY NEW HOPE and THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR will again participate in the Avenues for Hope online Housing Challenge Dec. 12-31. Trinity New Hope Inc. (TNH) is a Section 42 affordable housing neighborhood (16 3-bedroom homes). The House Next Door (HND) was founded several years ago by Grace Episcopal Church and can house four single moms and their young children or infants; the only requirement being that the moms pursue some form of education. Both TNH and HND have their own 501(c)3 status. Follow these links to make your donation: http://bit.ly/TNH2018 (for TNH) http://bit.ly/HNDA4H (for the HND). Or, come to our Saturday Drop-in at Trinity Dec. 15 from 8-11am and give there (we will have laptops ready for you). Join us for a cinnamon roll, hot chocolate, and some cookie decorating on your way to Christmas shopping. It does not take long to stop and learn about ending homelessness in our community!

SIGN-UPS:  The sign-up sheets for church cleaning and Fellowship Time for 2019 are posted at the east end of the Fellowship Hall and the Eternal Candle and Wine sign-up sheets for 2019 are in the long hallway on the bulletin board.  Sign up now to get those dates you’ve always wanted.

SHARE THE DAY  is coming up fast…November 15, 2018. This is an important day for Region III Housing Coalition. We provide many FREE OPPORTUNITIES:

-A hot Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings  – Haircuts  -Dental checkups and work

-Medical screenings  -Clothing and winter items  -Food boxes  -Mammograms,   -and much more.

With that being said, our winter clothing and blanket collection runs October 1 – November 8 and there will be a box in the narthex/gathering space of the church as a drop off site M-Th from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you could share this with the church members THAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL! We hope they might help us by donating blankets, coats, gloves, scarves, and hats for all age groups {New or gently used]. We can truly use the help!   Thanks so much,  Tami Romine (Trinity New Hope Property Manager)
