Food 4 Kids:  Thanks to 13 volunteers who contributed about 40 hours this week to make Trinity’s support of Food 4 Kids happen!  Also kudos to Rebecca Zimmerman and Cheryl Dorrell (co-directors), Kaitlin Roberts (kitchen/volunteer manager), and park managers Valerie Hagedorn (Jaycee), Emily Schaeffler (Brashear), Mackenzie Snyder (PC Mills), and the park liaisons!

Free concert: Richard McKinney, piano stylist, offers “Songs My Heart Sings” at First Christian Church, 7 p.m, Saturday, August 11. Donations can be made to the Adair County Public Library.

Bria’s Baptism:  Bria will be baptized Sunday, August 19 – Plan to be here for the service and for a light lunch following to renew our acquaintance with Bria’s extended family!

August 19 Plate Offering:  will be for Episcopal Migration Ministries.  During the current migration crisis, EMM is partnering with the Refugee Services of Texas/Austin (Diocese of Austin) and Refugee Focus (Diocese of Arizona) as well as others.  Please be generous.  Of the millions of displaced and refugee people in the world, a staggering 11.25 million are children.  More information is available at https://episcopalmigrationministries.org/.

Outreach – Missouri Mission of Mercy (MOMOM):  offers free dental work August 3 and 4 at Pershing Gym on the Truman campus.  We applaud all the volunteers who make this event happen – and do remind anyone you know who may need no-cost dental work that this option is available.

Kickoff Weekend is Coming Up: not football, but campus and outreach ministries!  On Friday, Aug. 24, we will gather at the courthouse to share a potluck picnic at 6 p.m. prior to enjoying the Deadwood Summer on the Square concert at 7 p.m.  Bring a friend (and a chair).  On Saturday, Aug. 25, we will have a booth at the second annual Community Roots Festival on the square.  And on Sunday, Aug. 26, we’ll have a special service and coffee hour to commission our musicians and welcome our students, faculty, and staff.

Community Roots Festival:  Trinity will have a non-profit informational booth at this festival on August 25.  Our focus will be music – making simple musical instruments, sharing copies of current songs we have permission to share, etc.  If you’d like to help staff the booth, contact Diane Johnson or Amy Fallon.

Process for Calling New Bishop:  The Diocese of Missouri is beginning the process of calling a new bishop. Bishop Smith has announced his intention to retire in 2020. The Diocese will elect a new bishop at Diocesan Convention in 2019, ad we expect to consecrate a new bishop in the spring of 2020. You can learn more about details about the process at https://www.diocesemo.org/bishop-search

Second Saturdays Yoga:  Second Saturday Yoga is on vacation until September.

Food Depot:  Our Food Depot items for August – Cereal

Garden overflowing?  Consider bringing extra produce to the Little Free Food Pantry!  The wire basket underneath the pantry is perfect for cucumbers, tomatoes, and other good stuff.  And it’s usually gone within a few hours.
