Voter's Meeting December 2
This is one of our annual meetings and will cover: 2019 Church Budget, Board of Trustees Election, and Nominations for Synod (our national church body) Positions. We will send a proposed budget and all other pertinent information prior to that date.
We pray to the Lord to raise up workers in the harvest and are thankful to each of you for your partnership in the Gospel. Special thanks to those who have served and are willing to serve on Board of Trustees. Each year, half of the seven members come up for election. This year we are voting for 4 of these positions. Kristan Cliggett has relocated, and Cliff Sanden has decided to withdraw his name. We thank God for these faithful servants!
The Board of Trustees is authorized to administer all matters, except those reserved by the Voters Assembly. They represent and are responsible to the Congregation in all matters of governance.
Per our by-laws, the BOT established a nominating committee in August: Dottie Campbell and Grace Leung. They were to receive nominations any time prior to 30 days from our Voter's Meeting. This is our slate of candidates for BOT: Kevin Balentine, Jason Clifford, Don Kilmer, Mike McLaughlin, and Jan Schulte. Please keep these individuals in your prayers.

Sunday School Program - 3 years old to 5th grade
With this program we aim to:
Touch the Heart: Connect with Emotions. Open the Soul: Jesus-Centered
Teach the Mind : Learn the Bible. Involve the Body: Live it out!
We invite all children from 3 years old to 5th grade to join us at 9:00am in the preschool classroom for Sunday School. During this time, children will participate in singing and worship, Bible skits, discussion and activities for life application, and prayer. During small group time children will be able to discuss and apply Bible stories to their personal lives at an age appropriate level. Sunday school will end at 9:55, when parents and guardians are asked to pick the children up from the preschool classroom.
Announcements: If you have an announcement that you would like to add to the Sunday bulletin or the Trinity Weekly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
God's Gifts and Stewardship - from our Treasurer
Trinity Lutheran Church (TLC) embraces its Ohana and exemplifies an alternative meaning to the church’s abbreviation of TLC to be “Tender Loving Care” while ministering to its congregation, students, staff, neighbors, community, and Lutheran outreach ministries. Opportunities abound to hear and participate in the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ such as: Sunday School, Bible Study, Worship Service and Fellowship. On alternating Wednesday evenings you will find: Generations, a group activity for all ages, or Christ in Common and Youth Group, Theology on Tap or Choir practice. With a Women’s Bible Study on Thursday Mornings and a Mens Bible Study on Thursday Evenings.
Trinity as a church and school carries out the mission of Christ to proclaim our hope in Jesus' death and resurrection. We would ask individuals to consider their giving, not only to Trinity but to other Gospel causes as well. For those giving at random we would recommend prayerfully choosing a percentage to give on a regular basis. For those already doing this, prayerfully consider giving more, and/or giving more widely.
A very effective way of ensuring your giving remains on track when you are unable to attend services as well as provide TLC with a level of stability while carrying out the Lord’s work, is to utilize Trinity’s online giving link provided by Vanco. For your consideration and convenience, the Vanco On-Line Giving Link is located here. You can also find it at www.trinity-hawaii.org and click Online Giving at the bottom of the page.

We need volunteers that care about the appearance and upkeep of our church and school facilities. No construction background necessary, just a love for our beautiful campus. Please contact Brian Sheets at email@example.com
Opportunities to be in the Word
It’s Shoebox Time!
Each year Trinity Lutheran Church has the tradition of supporting an international ministry project called Operation Christmas Child. Families can pack a shoebox for a child ages 2- 14. These shoeboxes then get shipped all over the world to children in villages that are underprivileged and hard to reach. Through the Operation Christmas Child project, God has given Christians unparalleled opportunities to touch the lives of millions of boys and girls in over 150 countries. Many of these children have never received a gift and never heard the true meaning of Christmas—until they open shoeboxes filled with gifts from people like you. Each shoebox gift becomes a tangible expression of God's love for a child in real need.
Please consider joining us by packing a shoebox and donating $9 per box to cover the shipping. See Pastor Alvey or Heather Klemp to request a shoebox and packing directions. For more information check out www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. To ensure a Christmas delivery, all shoebox donations must be received at the school office by Wednesday, November 14.
