New Name Tags I now hear from visitors that they feel like we are a friendly congregation. We open the doors, and say hello, and make an effort to recognize our visitors. Now we can go the extra mile, with name tags, so that our visitors know us as well! We have designed brand new name tags that are much easier to read, and are magnetic so you don’t put holes in your clothes! The cost of a new nametag is only $6 and you can order one for each family member now. You’ll see someone in the Narthex before services or you can contact Vicki in the church office.
Prayer Requests may be shared with us by writing the information under the Prayer Requests/Concerns section of your attendance card. All prayer requests will be kept on Trinity’s prayer list for two weeks. Please print the first and last names of those persons your are asking us to pray for so that we may put their names on the prayer list.
A Nursery is available for both services on Sunday for children age 4 and under. If you do not know where the nursery is located ask an usher.
Trinity Samaritans—Trinity Church & School continually collect food and clothing for our neighbors in Osceola County. Bring your donations of both food and clothing to church, anytime you have gathered a few items together. On a weekly basis, our Samaritans will move the items to storage area, making sure those donations get to places of need, including our own food pantry. Please #1 Make sure your clothing donations are in reasonably good condition. Please #2 when you shop for groceries, remember there are two unseen “guests” who will be dining with you. One is Jesus. The other is a man, woman, or family who will deeply appreciate that they have been given a seat at your table.
