Call to Action
For the past several years, our Missouri State Legislature has refused to pass Medicaid Expansion in our state, leaving thousands of people without access to affordable healthcare. You can do something about this. This fall, Trinity is joining with a coalition of concerned citizens to put Medicaid Expansion on the 2020 ballot so that the people can decided. If our lawmakers won’t do their job, we will!
This Sunday, you are invited to sign the Medicaid Expansion petition and sign up to volunteer to help move our state forward in the right direction.
Simplified Sunday school continues during the summer months in the North Parish Hall during the 10:30 AM service. This Sunday’s storyteller is Melissa Morgan. Professional Childcare provided by Katie Wolf.
Bible Study this Sunday @ 9:30 AM on Paul’s Letter to Philemon
This Sunday we will start a series on the “short” books of the bible. You can probably read this Sunday’s book (Philemon) in less than 15 min!

On Saturday evening September 14, Trinity will hold a Homecoming and Hymn Sing to support the Trinity Food Ministry. At 6pm (following the Table service) we'll gather for a potluck supper followed by a 7pm hymn sing in the Church.
For the hymn sing, there will be two giving opportunities:
First, in the weeks leading up to the event, vote for your favorite hymns. At $1 per vote, we'll sing the 10 hymns which receive the most votes.
Secondly at the potluck, we will have a silent auction to “retire" two hymns for six months each and five (!) hymns, which will be retired for the entire year.
Starting this Sunday, there will be vote sheets for your favorites at the back of the church. Fill one out and put it with your money in the envelope provided. Out of town?
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your list of hymns and dollar amount.
So peruse your hymnals – Vote early – Vote often!
