Donate a pillow - Trinity Mission and Action Committee
“...and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28.  Donate-A-Pillow: Families with refugee status arrive every day with just one suitcase per person and hearts full of hope. Trinity’s Mission and Action committee invites you to support refugee families by donating a new standard-size pillow. Your gift of a pillow will help others sleep well.

How to donate: Beginning July 1st (Friday), Visit Trinity's Mission & Action "Donate-A-Pillow" pillow board in the narthex. Select a paper pillow  from Trinity’s Adopt-A-Pillow and be sure to fill out your information and bring it back with your pillow donation. Trinity’s goal is to collect 20 pillows. The Mission and Action committee will donate standard size, zipper-style pillow covers for each pillow donated (pillow cases are NOT needed).  Donations are due to the office by 5pm on July 28th.  Trinity will also need a volunteer to deliver the pillows to the MN Council of Churches – Refugee Services in MPLS. Please contact the office if you are willing to make the pillow delivery. 


New! - Audio Podcast "prayer-full Pause" w/Pastor April
The prayer-full pause is being transformed into an audio podcast for your listening pleasure. Stay tuned for more!

Sailboat Church Helping Your Church Rethink Its Mission and Practice by Joan S. Gray. It is for visioning purposes and to aid in broader church-wide discussions that may be included during a Caring and Sharing service.
 
Need a summer read? If you are looking for a summer read, pick up Sailboat Church Helping Your Church Rethink Its Mission and Practice by Joan S. Gray. Ruling Elders will be reading this for visioning purposes and broader church-wide discussions may be included during a Caring and Sharing service.  

Tuesday @ 2 Group needs your input! Tuesday @ 2 is looking for ideas and input as to what would inspire you to participate in our next Zoom discussion. Is a thematic study appealing or would you rather read a book?  Are you interested in diving deep with an Old Testament prophet or one of the Epistles (letters) in the New Testament?  Please let Pastor April know if there is something you have always wanted to discuss.  The next discussion will resume late summer. 
Worship streaming Trinity utilizes YouTube to stream. If you are not able to attend Trinity in person, try YouTube for your worship streaming! YouTube provides the best quality viewing and audio.
