Lenten Collection For Fish Farms
Give your neighbors a fish, and they'll eat for a day; give your neighbors a community fish farm, and they'll eat for a lifetime. A fish farm begins with a pond, training and a few fast-growing fish, such as tilapia. The entire community benefits from a longtime supply of fish, rich in vitamins, minerals and protein.
Help us fill the pond! Our Lenten collection this year is for fish farms through ELCA Good Gifts. There's a new bulletin board display in the dining hall to track our progress. It costs $50 per fish, and our goal is 20 fish, which equals $1,000. To help you collect your donation, there are some cardboard banks (much like we had for the pigs last year) available in the dining hall and in back of church.
Loose Change Offerings
Loose change offerings through March will go to ELCA Good Gifts -- fish farms.
Helping Each Other
Trinity's Membership Committee is hoping to begin a project that could involve all of us. Many of us have families close by who come our rescue when needed. However, in the modern world of today, some of us need to depend on the church to provide love, companionship, support, and yes, sometimes help.
The Membership Committee has created a simple form for you to fill out called "Helping Each Other Questionnaire," which was distributed at church and in the January Tidings. If you need a form, please contact the church office.
Do you want to help? Or are you the helper? The top of the form has space for your name, address and phone number. If you don't need help and want to be a helper, there are some areas already listed on the form; just check the box. There is also a section where you can fill in where your talents lie (driving, food, odd jobs, etc.). There's room in the boxes to put down when you are available to help (monthly, weekly, only certain days, etc).
If you need help, select the areas of need that apply on the form, or write in your own specific needs. In the boxes labeled "I Need Help” write down the approximate time you might need that help (such as monthly, weekly, occasionally, in fall, doctor visits, etc).
As soon as we get responses for a need or for volunteering, someone from Trinity will contact you. This program is new to all of us; knowing a need and finding a friend to fill it may take some organization and time.
WWJD? Apply it to telling your need(s) or to providing your assistance.
Offerings -- There's An App For That!
If you're interested in making a financial offering through an app, visit your app store (the App Store for Apple products and Google Play store for Android) and find the Give+ app. Enter "Trinity Lutheran Cedarburg," choose it, and set up your amount, date, etc. You can do a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation on your schedule. You will get credit on your giving statement just as you would with envelopes. Thank you for contributing to God's work through Trinity.
