Greetings Trinity collegiate church family. Let us unite together in a Lenten fast, beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Easter Sunday. We will embark on a journey that brings us closer to God and transforms our lives forever. We want to be purposeful this Lenten season to separate ourselves from the world. “How do we do that?” you may ask. We do this by giving up the very thing that makes us feel most connected to the world; we separate ourselves from the thing we cherish the most. The thing we give up becomes our sacrifice to God; and in place of this thing, we turn to God to help us as we commit to this sacrifice for the 40+ days of Lent. In prayer and supplication, we pray together, share words of encouragement, exchange scriptures, reflect on how God has worked in our lives and in the world. The sacrifices can range from food, social media, TV, etc. As a church family, we will check in on Sundays leading up to our Easter celebration by sharing our stories in Fellowship 15/coffee hour. We will break our fast together on Easter Sunday with a pot luck lunch. The potluck sign-up sheets will be posted on the bulletin board. If you feel called to participate, please sign up on the bulletin board or leave a sign up sheet in the collection plate. May God continue to bless you, church family.
Trinity Deacons are partnering with Operation Jersey Cares sending care packages to our deployed servicemen and women around the world. They also assist them as they transition back into civilian life. If you know of anyone currently serving, you can send them their name and they will send packages directly to them. There is a flyer with information about the organization on the bulletin board in the hallway. Below is a list of what is needed:
• Hygiene products: toothpaste, toothbrushes, body lotion, body soap, feminine products, baby wipes, shampoo (Unisex), deodorant, (PLEASE DONATE TRAVEL SIZES OF THESE ITEMS. IT IS EASIER FOR THEM TO CARRY IN THEIR PACKS WHEN OUT IN THE FIELD)
• Nail clippers, haircut kit, Gillette Razors, disinfectant wipes
• Cold and flu items: cough drops, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Imodium, Pepto Bismol, multivitamins, Theraflu, Mucinex, DayQuil/NyQuil,
• First aid items: bandages, Neosporin, foot powder
• Other items: Laundry detergent pods, cheap headphones, N95 masks, treats, letters (especially from children)
You may drop items off at the church or contact Sarah Coppola for a contactless pickup. If you want to make a monetary donation, make the check out to Trinity Reformed Church and we will purchase items to be sent.
