OUR PROGRAM IS SELLING   Martin’s, Food Lion, Home Depot & Sheetz Gift Cards.  Trinity gets about 5% of what we sell.  This is a very successful program that raises a tremendous amount of revenue for our church. Please get yours on Sunday or arrange for week day pick up.

ALTAR & ORGAN FLOWER SIGN UP You may use the Board in the Narthex of the church. The flowers are $40 for each week.  Please include your dedication with payment or contact the office.  Flowers are then distributed to sick, shut ins and nursing homes following the services on Sunday by the Altar Guild.  We are grateful to all of you who participate in this ministry.

BACKPACKS AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES: It might seem early to think about the next school year, but this is a “heads up” that Trinity Church will again support students in need at Shepherdstown Middle schoolby providing backpacks and school supplies. Our goal is 25 bags and 25 of each of these items: notebook paper, packs of pencils, colored pencils, pens, 
1” 3-ring notebooks, single subject notebooks, pocket folders, composition notebooks, and tissues. 
As you are out and about this summer look for these items and bring them into the office or the fellowship hall.

FOOD COLLECTION: We will be collecting non-perishable food items to help persons in need in the Eastern Panhandle who reside at one of the four local Oxford Houses. We will collect until the end of July – water, soup, tuna, canned fruit & veggies, granola bars, nuts, peanut butter, jelly and crackers. Make sure these items are not expired and place them under the table in the Fellowship Hall. Thank you very much!
