TLC Singles Luncheon RETURNS! TLC’s monthly Singles Luncheon IS BACK!!!! This long-awaited and much missed monthly get together for singles of all ages will happen Thursday, August 19, at 11:30 am, featuring a bountiful and delicious fare.  Preparations and serving provided by Jan Leaf, Julie Fisher, Marie Bailey, Connie Gridley, and Karen Cook. Paula and Lindsay Moore decorate the tables and handle pre-promotion.

FPNI Golf Classic Trinity volunteers are stepping up to make this year’s FPNI Golf Classic at The Links a fun and, hopefully, successful Charity Golf Scramble on September 17 to benefit Family Promise of North Idaho. Early planning and sponsor sales – headed up by TLC’s Doug Miller (among others) – are now underway. See Doug for sponsorship opportunities and watch for more details about how to support homeless families in crisis!

We are fed at the table of Communion where Jesus Christ comes with forgiveness, life and salvation. God sends us out to share the good news and to care for those in need.

Trinity Cares and Helps:

Family Promise of North Idaho Lutheran Church of the Master joins with Trinity to host families in Family Promise several times during the year. Many volunteers are needed to support this effort. There are a variety of ways to get involved: meal preparation; purchase supplies; shop for supplies, do laundry. There are so many wonderful ways to make this program a success.

Food Bank Throughout the year, Trinity holds several food drives and collects non-perishable food items in the “Caring and Sharing” box in the Atrium. Food is distributed locally by Christ the King Lutheran Church.

We Personally Care This is a drive to collect personal care items that are donated to the community food bank.

Ecumenical Food Kitchen Every two months a team of Trinity members prepares and serves a nutritious meal for many disadvantaged people from the community. Many of these people are unemployed or disabled and might not otherwise have a hot meal. Meals are served at First Presbyterian Church.

Food Baskets Holiday food baskets are provided for families in need at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have also 'adopted' Bryan Elementary - our neighborhood school - and routinely provide Food Baskets on holidays for 4 to 5 families in need.

Holidays and Heroes Children come through this annual event with a local EMT hero. Each child selects a toy and clothing and then receives a beautiful handmade quilt from TLCW-Trinity Lutheran Church Women.

Lutherhaven Scholarships Every child should be able to go to camp!

That’s what the Trinity Lutheran Women believe. Each year they provide scholarships for kids in need.

Quilts on Tuesdays Quilts are handmade and given to TLC graduates, children and adults baptized at TLC, St Vincent de Paul warming centers, the Union Gospel Mission for Women & Children, Trinity Group Homes, Kootenai County Search & Rescue, local youth who were aging out of the Foster Care system. Fabulous fabrics and/or funds to buy materials are always welcome!
