The Welcome Center Needs Your Help!

From Welcome Center Organizer Kimi King:

 

We need you as part of the Trinity Welcome Team!

 

The Welcome Center in the Narthex sets up goodies for visitors and members to “grab & go” as they head into service or off to Sunday School. It allows us to hit “pause” for a moment & say hello to old or new friends so that we connect.

There are two ways you can share your gifts:

Set up and clean up – You need to arrive by 8:10am to put out food & drink, but you do not need to stay the whole time, so long as clean up can be done by 12:10pm (groups may want to share responsibilities).

Providing food/drink – This requires dropping off food/drink donations at the church before your designated Sunday (you can freeze homemade goodies & drop them off during the week in Lowrie freezer marked for the Welcome Center).

 

Feel free to sign up for as many slots as you want. We also encourage families and groups (Bible Study, Youth, Prayer Team, etc.) to sign up because worshiping and being in fellowship together is always such a gift from God!

Please review the available slots at this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/805084fafac2ca6fd0-helping1

If you have any questions, please email Kimi King (kking@unt.edu).

Bless you for being part of this church!

What does the number 126 have to do with TUMC? That’s the largest amount of jars of peanut butter we have donated to the Denton Community Food Center ever! Could we improve that number? YES!!! If everyone just brought 1 jar of peanut butter during February, just imagine how much we could give!

Sunday, February 2, 2020

Good Sunday Morning, Trinity Family!

The Communion Rail Offering for February 2 is for Our Daily Bread, which serves the homeless and at-risk in Denton. They will use our offering to provide breakfasts and lunches Monday – Saturday, give passes for showers and bus/train service, provide laundry vouchers, and help with job placement, just to name a few of their services. Our Daily Bread relies on donations to be able to assist others. Our church has helped support Our Daily Bread for many years.

The Missions‘ project for February is to donate jars of peanut butter to the Denton Community Food Center. Every family who comes to the Food Center is offered a jar of peanut butter, so peanut butter is constantly being sent home with the needy. Please help our church supply an abundant amount of this needed food!

We hope to see you this morning at church!

If you can’t be there in person, join us on YouTube for our 11AM LiveStream!
