Today’s Word from Pastor Jim…

Thank you for your generous and compassionate support of the refugee crisis in Eastern Europe. We might not be able to stop this war, but we can make a difference! Since March 2nd, Trinity has already given $25,000 to Eastern Europe. We are working with our partners at Lutheran World Relief and ELCA Disaster Response. Every penny that you have given has been forwarded to our relief partners.

The Trinity Lutheran Church Council has heard your cries and responded. In conjunction with the Trinity Lutheran Church Endowment Committee, they have added another $25,000 to your gift. Your gifts have been matched and we have now given $50,000. Of that, $45,000 has been sent to Eastern Europe and $5,000 to ELCA Refugee Resettlement in Seattle. ELCA Refugee Resettlement in Seattle has been helping refugees from Ukraine for more than 50 years.

Blessed to be a Blessing! I give thanks for you, for those who have supported the Endowment, and for the vision of our congregational leaders.

One day closer,
Pastor Jim
