SCRIP CARDS AVAILABLE
Thank you to everyone for your support of our Scrip Program in the past. The Scrip program generates between 4.5 – 5% profit for Trinity on all cards purchased through us. We continue to carry frequently used cards from: Kwik Trip, Cub, Wal Mart, Subway, Menards, Target, Applebees.
We will also continue to do special orders for businesses that we don’t carry regularly. Please allow 1 month notice for special orders so now is the time to think ahead for Christmas - Scrip cards make great gifts!

MISSION REQUESTS
Once again, the Board of Missions is asking for suggestions from the congregation to help decide which missions to support in 2022. There are forms on the table in the Narthex.  Please feel free to pick one up and fill in the necessary information.  Return them to the Mission mailbox in the Ushers’ closet by October 24.  The Board will make our decisions at the November Board meeting and present them to the congregation at the November Voters’ meeting.  Thank you for your input.

STEWARDSHIP LETTERS
The time has once again come to thoughtfully consider the amount of time, talents, and financial support that we will contribute to the Church for the next year. The 2022 Trinity Lutheran Church pledge cards will be mailed to each household in September. Extra pledge cards are available on the table in the Narthex. Please return the pledge card to the Church no later than October 10. Please pray for our Church and thoughtfully consider your pledge to the Church for next year.
The Board of Stewardship would also like to pass along our thanks to the volunteers that help keep the Church operating on a weekly basis. It is truly astonishing how many hours are spent each week by volunteers who help with important duties such as preparing the altar, mowing the lawn, cleaning the Church and so much more. If you would like to volunteer to give your time and talent to help with Church duties please contact a member of the Stewardship Board and we will get you involved with a group that needs your support.  God’s Blessings to you.
Board of Stewardship
