Sunday, August 18   Backpack, Student and Teacher blessings!

This Sunday, August 18, we will spend time in our 9:00am worship blessing all of our students, teachers, school administrators and all who work for a school. From preschools to universities, we want to bless all who are beginning this new school year. 
PLTS Seminarian Updates!

HOUSING NEEDED:  Our former Seminarian Caitlyn Melillo has completed her internship in Uraguay and has been approved for ordination in the ELCA!  As she awaits her synod assignment, Caitlyn will be doing a year-long Clinical Pastoral Education unit in the Bay Area and is looking for a room or apartment to rent.  She is hoping to be close to Oakland/Berkeley, but is open to suggestions.  If you have a lead or know of someone who is looking for a roommate, please contact the office and let either Andrea or Pastor Heidi know.

Courtney Giebert is beginning her internship at Christ Lutheran Church in Pacific Beach, CA (San Diego area).  That congregation's sanctuary was the background photo for the ELCA's Churchwide Assembly opening worship.   Feel free to send her greetings of encouragement as she continues her pastoral journey.   Christ Lutheran Church, 4761 Cass St, San Diego, CA 92109.

And our current Seminarian, Stefan Swanson, will return to Trinity on Rally Sunday, September 8th!  We look forward to welcoming him back after a summer of Clinical Pastoral Education.

Keep your eyes and Ears peeled for the new Trinity Bell Choir!
If interested in Ringing a bell or 2, please see Dwight (or Matt :-).
Starting September.
Rally Sunday September 8, 2019  Starting at 9am

The Mount Diablo Conference of Pastors gets together once a week and Trinity has been hosting this get together.  On Tuesday, September 3 they would like to kick off the new year with a BBQ lunch. Would anyone be willing to BBQ for the pastors?  If so please call the office and let Andrea know.   
 Volunteers needed for running ProPresentor on Sunday mornings.  If anyone is interested in serving as a worship assistant behind the scenes, then we have an opportunity for you!   Trinity is in need of people willing to run our visual aids for Sunday morning worship.   Experience with using ProPresenter is good, but not required.   If we get enough people to help, we can do sign-ups so one person isn't required to do it every week.   Interested or questions, please talk to either Dwight or Pastor Heidi. 
What's more fun than playing ping pong during the summer?  Having a tournament to show off your talents and passion for fun!  Sign up to be a part of this fun event. This is an ongoing tournament; line up a date with one of the players.  Questions? Speak with Dwight Stone or Toni Ann Gatzke.  
There is still time to make a gift or a pledge toward our Capital Campaign for the Sonshine Preschool Building Project.  The work of God’s kingdom is plentiful, and we are responding with God’s abundance for this special project;
Thank you to all who have given & pledged so far!
Please remember we still have our weekly and monthly ministries also continuing that need your support.  Your regular weekly/monthly mission support stewardship gifts are needed and much appreciated for the blessings they bring.

Lake Tahoe is a sublime mix, with big-city entertainment tucked into the beautiful snow-capped Sierra Mountains. It’s where people go to rejuvenate their spirit, rediscover their family, relax in scenic splendor-and do a little gambling. 
WorldMark South Shore is poised to take full advantage of Lake Tahoe’s charms. Skiing, water skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, jeep adventures and cruises are all part of the fun. The resort is just a 10-minute walk from Nevada Beach State Park and a six-minute drive from the Gondola at Heavenly or the casinos in Stateline.
This is a great place; Carol and I have stayed here a few times.   No Pets Allowed!!!!
