THIS WEEK AT TRINITY

Staying connected — All in-person worship services, meetings and other gatherings are canceled temporarily in the interest of the safety of our parishioners and the wider community. Even though we can’t be together face to face at this time, we still have opportunities to stay connected and to be together in spirit as a congregation. We will continue to stay in touch through e-mail communications and phone calls and by making our services available through on-line access whenever possible. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Ways to help our neighbors needing food assistance — With schools currently closed and individuals sheltering at home due to coronavirus precautions, many families and individuals in our community may need food assistance.  Local organizations are working to fill the gap by providing meals, food baskets and delivery service for those who may need help feeding their families or themselves.  Please share this information as needed.

·        Neighbor to Neighbor is providing sack lunches on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to anyone who is hungry who comes to the front door between 12 and 1 p.m. on those days.  Other essential services provided are available by appointment.

·        Area school districts have plans in place to feed students while schools are closed. Parents/students are encouraged to contact their district offices or check their school’s social media page.

·        Instacart.com is a grocery delivery service from your local store. Currently Super 1 Foods and Brookshires in our area are using it.  Groceries can be delivered to your door for a fee.  To access this service, you may register on the Instacart website.

Donations needed — During the next few weeks, Neighbor to Neighbor expects to serve many more families with children.  They are asking for donations of bottled water, fruit cups, fresh fruits, cookies and other items that will complete a sack lunch.  Cash donations are always welcome.  To make any kind of donation, call Neighbor to Neighbor at 870-534-2883 or the church office at 870-534-3832.  Contact Beverly Wasson (board member) for more information.
