MICHIGAN DISTRICT CONFERENCE. Beginning this afternoon and continuing through Tuesday of this week is the Michigan District All Pastors Conference in Boyne City. Pastor will be away during this time. Please pray for safe travels and for a fruitful and edifying conference for all involved.

TRINITY VOTERS ASSEMBLY meets Thursday, October 17th at 7 pm.  If you are a communicant member of Trinity and want to be a voter, please contact Pastor or Karla Woell.  A person must complete an application and attend one voter’s meeting in order to voted in as a voting member.  They may then vote at the second voter’s meeting.  Trinity has 2 official meetings each year - July and October.  (karlarkd@gmail.com or 231-889-3323)

CHURCH BELLS.  In response to a concern raised about our bells, the Church Council is recommending to the congregational voters that the hours during which the bells chief change from 7am-10pm to 8am-9pm.  This recommendation will be on the agenda for voting at our regularly scheduled voters meeting.  There will be a public forum to hear comments from our Arcadian neighbors on Tuesday, October 15 at 7 pm, at the church.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY.  The Wednesday morning women’s bible study group will start again on October 9th.  At the first meeting we will discuss our summer read - “To the Moon and Back” by Karen Kingsbury.

2020 GIVING ENVELOPES.  If you do not currently have envelopes for 2019 and wish to receive envelopes for 2020, please contact Norma at 231-880-4409.  Please leave a message.

LECTORS WANTED. A simple yet indispensable role in church is serving as a lector - that’s the fancy term for “reader in worship”.  A Google document that goes thru May has been created so that you can sign up as a lector.  You can also still sign up on the church bulletin board.  If you haven’t done this before and are interested, Pastor would be happy to take time with you to walk you through it.  https://tinyurl.com/y4kh2mw4

NURSERY CARE.  As a way to support our families with little ones, we’re looking to begin providing nursery care on Sunday mornings.  If this is a ministry that you might like to help with, or if you know someone who may be interested (a modest weekly stipend is also possible), contact pastor.

ACTIVITY BAGS. For parents with young children, we have activity bags available for our youngest worships (up to about age 8). You will find them in the bin in the cry room. We also have books for various ages. You may take them to your pew during the service, but please return them afterward.
