    King David said, I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing. (2 Samuel 24:24). David knew the importance of giving to God something meaningful or of value. David felt that his giving should cost him something. When we give sacrificially, as David did, we understand that it has less to do with how much we give than how much we give up. To give sacrificially means that we give something we love to something we love even more.

    St. Trinity is hosting a packing party! Kids Coalition Against Hunger (KCAH)

    Sunday, September 24th packing party starts at 12:30 pm

    KCAH coordinates packaging events throughout the eastern half of the U.S., feeding starving children around the world and in local communities. We will work together in an assembly-line setting to produce packets of dry food. The packets (which have a 3+ year shelf-life) are then boxed and distributed. Each packet provides enough nutrition for 6 adults or 12 children for a day.

    The schedule for the day is:

    11:00 am Setup and unpack food 12:00 pm Light lunch/snacks

    12:30 pm Pack food 2:30 pm Clean up

    Volunteers are needed to set up tables and chairs, and to unpack the dry food from the KCAH trucks. We will be packing 20,000 meals. The lunch is funded through a Thrivent Action Team grant. Look for the signup sheet in the Narthex at the Information Center. All questions can be sent to Carol Koenig at 248-882-8817 or koenig5@comcast.net, or Pam Boadway at 248-420-7757.

    We are in need of a Sunday School teacher or team for Grades 5-8, and substitute teachers. All materials are provided. Please sign up at the Information Center in the Narthex.
