Donors Needed! Blood Drive—Trinity’s Spring Blood Drive is May 21st. Sign up during fellowship May 20th. Many of our faithful donors are no longer able to donate. Help Trinity reach its quota.

Special Congregational Meeting—May 20th at 11:40 a.m. in Faith Hall for the purpose of approving the use of up to $24,000 from the Property Reserve Fund for the purchase and installation of new speakers in the sanctuary. Trinity Lutheran Church has been wrestling with the sound system for ten years.  Within the last several years control of the microphones was improved with the addition of a new sound board, amplifiers were added to provided additional power to the existing speakers, and more wireless microphones were added. Trinity’s ten-year-old speakers are coming to the end of their life cycle and need to be replaced soon. The longer we wait the more difficult it will be to find speakers that are compatible with our system. Please plan on attending this meeting.

Vacation Bible School—We are planning for June already! We are collecting clean 8 oz. water bottles with the caps to provide crafts for the week of June 18th through the 22nd. For questions or to volunteer, please contact Amy Roehrs at aroehrs@tlcmoline.org.
