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!!!!
