GET READY!

All eyes on the south side of Trinity and the steeple! Building Restoration of Kalamazoo is set to start the much needed repairs and restoration to the stone work including the roofline edge. The steeple will have missing shingles replaced as well. Building Restoration completed St. Mary's restoration as well as the Brooks Fountain.

Coffee Hour Volunteers

Thank you to the Coffee Hour volunteers who have graciously not only taken their time but provided delightful treats! The sign up sheet is located on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall. We are in need of a host for 10/23 as that is fast approaching. Feel free to email Becky Wright at becky.wright@trinityofmarshall.org or phone/text at 269-268-0070. Let's keep it going!

Phone Volunteers Wanted

The church is in the process of hiring a Parish Administrator and that process is taking some time as we have had only a few applications.

We are in need of phone volunteers, one for Wednesday and one for Thursday, while we search for our Parish Administrator. We will provide training and guidance on your duty of being a friendly voice on the phone to take messages and direct the questions or concerns appropriately. Please call Julie at 269-753-4150 if you are interested in helping. Your Vestry and Church Staff greatly appreciates your assistance at this time.

Yours in Christ - Julie Kaminski, Senior Warden

Looking for unused church keys

If your parish ministry that allowed you to have a key to Trinity's doors has ended, could you return your key so others will have one for their new ministry? Call Karla Love 269-753-9772 or Julie Kaminski 269-75-4150 to set a time to return it and sign that the key is returned. The office staff can also help with the returns by calling the office first.

The Blessing of the Animals

Please join in the Blessing of the Animals and Prayers for Creation service on Sunday, October 2nd, starting at 1:00pm. This gathering will be at the new Ketchum Park Pavillion in Marshall. All companion animals should be on a leash or in carriers. If your pet is uncomfortable with the other animals, or just doesn’t like being in a car, please bring a photograph for a “remote blessing”. We are looking forward to seeing your dogs, cats, turtles, horses... every creature under heaven! This is sponsored by Trinity Church Board of Missions.

Suggestion Cards

In the coming weeks there will be paper and pencil in the pews for you to write out suggestions for the church as we are moving forward with making changes. We want to hear from you! Please write out your suggestions and drop them in the collection plates.

Pastoral Care Committee

The pastoral care committee is running and active! We are here for you! Please reach out to Mike Renaud (269-830-2403 or pastoralcare@trinityofmarshall.org) for your pastoral care concerns . The pastoral care committee is here to provide support to you for your emotional life, spiritual life, or prayer for your physical needs. Please share with us if you also know of concerns for others.

SHARE Center Dinners

We are happy to announce that the SHARE Center dinners are starting up again! We have committed to providing a meal on each 5th Friday. This has been a favorite ministry for Trinity, reaching out to our less fortunate community in Battle Creek.

The SHARE Center offers a number of services that help people overcome crises by meeting basic needs, removing barriers, and stabilizing income and housing. Check out their website, sharecenterbc.org.

Healing Prayer and Study

The Trinity Healing Prayer and Study group meets on Thursdays at 10:00 am in the chapel. We are studying the healing ministry of Jesus and how we may be open to His healing power today. All are welcome.

Keep Saving Those Receipts from Family Fare

Remember to bring your Family Fare receipts to the church. There is a basket on the table outside of the office or you may leave them inside the plastic container by the parking lot door. Our total is $28,618, up $3,797 from last week. Please use your Family Fare Yes card so that we earn points.
