Thank you and your church for hosting our shelter the past two weeks. Your building space worked out well. This has been an unusual winter for bad weather, so we are doubly grateful to have so many churches in the Borough who are willing to be shelter sites. I hope Trinity will be willing to be a site again next winter. Thank you so much for being a part of the valuable ministry to our homeless. Sincerely, Mary Stevenson, Chair, Gettysburg C.A.R.E.S. Board of Directors
Thank you to all of those from Trinity who served as “hosts” this year when we opened out church to the C.A.R.E.S. folks. They were: Heather Carbaugh, Ann Harner, Sue Henderson, Robert Weiant, Penny and Ed and Megan Ziegler, Stephen Broache, Don Walsh, and Steve and Janet Sheely. Keeping us organized was Roberta Weiant. We also delivered – thanks to your donations – about a dozen full plastic bags to the Resource Center on York Street to be used for bag suppers. The spare/warm winter clothing table for the overnight guests was also a big hit. Thanks again!
THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!
IN SUNDAY SCHOOL YOU ARE SOMEONE SPECIAL!!!
“Individualized teaching and small class size help our primary students learn both Bible Basics, and how special they are. We emphasize music and hands-on activities. Each month has a major theme. Primary grades (pre-K to 5th grade) meet during our 10:30 Family Service.
Our monthly themes reinforce the lessons we all want our children to know. This year our schedule is:
September: The Story of Joseph
October: Saving the Israelites
November: David and Goliath
December: God gives us Jesus
January: Jesus our Teacher
February: Feeding the Five Thousand
March: Searching for Easter
April (post Easter): The Ten Lepers
