The church office will be closed on Monday, October 9 in observance of Columbus Day.
Thank you to those who have contributed to Emma Harrod’s homecoming. The church and many in the community have expressed Christ’s love to the Harrods with open hearts and hands. For that we are grateful. We continue to collect funds for the many needs required to bring our Emma home. Trinity’s goal is $65,000. If you would like to contribute, make your check payable to Trinity Baptist Church and note “Harrods” or “Bring Emma Home” on the memo line. Please continue to keep Emma, Mark, Jodie, Ellen, & Samuel in prayer.
We continue providing meals for the Harrods at Wellmont Hospice House. The schedule is available on Meal Train through November. Go to: https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/3l37v8

If you prefer to donate money instead of the requested items, mark the memo portion of your check “Apple Butter.” We also need many volunteers to help. Proceeds will go to the “Bring Emma Home” fund.
