SPIRIT LED HEALING IN MENTAL HEALTH!: Pastor Kelly will be inviting conversation about common mental health challenges. She will talk about how the medical model and traditional psychotherapy view and treat concerns like depression, anxiety, or grief. In contrast, Kelly will introduce Internal Family Systems theory (IFS) and how the Holy Spirit meets us and helps heal those same concerns from the inside out. If you or someone close to you struggles with mental health challenges, or if you simply are curious about how to add support through Trinity’s ministries, this conversation may bring a new sense of hope! Take your coffee to the Koinonia Room after worship today, Nov. 10.  Pastor Kelly Loy, LAMFT, LPC, NCC, MDiv, RN, is a trained psychotherapist doing pastoral counseling in Boise and Mountain Home.

2020 Offering Envelope packets are being assembled soon. Many of you used the Passions & Gifts forms in October to tell us how many offering envelopes you will wanted. Others who would like 2020 envelopes, please used the slip in today’s bulletin to make your request. Just fill it out and put it in the offering plate. Your packets will be ready for you in December.

STEWARDSHIP OF THE FUTURE – One way to be a good steward of “what’s yet to come” is by making a contribution to the Trinity Lutheran Endowment Fund. The “increase” on the principal may be used to fund a variety of things that impact the future…………like repairing our roof or feeding the hungry in Africa. This is a great way to pay-it-forward.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE  to fill out your Sunday Servant and Gifts & Passions sheets. Blank copies are on the narthex table. When you’re done, just put them in the offering plate or give to someone on Stewardship Team.

ROOF AND PARKING LOT:  The parking lot has been paid for but we are still accepting donations for the roof.  Thank you to all who have donated.
