Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White wraps up this Sunday, September 25, in room 12. If you haven’t had a chance to experience this provocative study, this will be your last chance.

Short on Cash? Moths in Your Wallet?

Thinking about going to that kangaroo that loans money? Maybe we can offer you a better option. Beginning on Sunday, October 2, from 4-6 pm, we will be offering Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace Class. 9 two-hour sessions can change your financial attitude and give you a freedom you’ve never known. Check with Pastor Alex, Karen Meenen or Susan Whipple to sign up.


COME WALK WITH US October 9. Trinity has organized this walk to raise funds for Door Step, Let’s Help, Salvation Army, and Rescue Mission - now that the CROP Walk is no longer happening in Topeka. Each Sunday through Oct 9, you can sign up in the lobby to pledge funds by check or cash. On Oct 9 we walk the Nature Trail at the Kansas Historical Museum grounds for 2 miles. All are welcome to walk. It starts after church so wear walking clothes/shoes. A light lunch provided before leaving around noon. Water and cookies provided at the walk. Register in advance so we have plenty. Please pay your pledge by the end of October to get funds to the agencies for Christmas distribution.

Trunk or Treat Sunday, October 23rd

Where do the costumes come from? Well, originally, children went out on All Hallow’s Eve to collect gifts for the poor who would have to face the coming of winter with little extra in their larders. The children would dress in rags and "beg" for coins or extra food to share on All Saint’s Day with the poor of their community. Eventually, the rags morphed in to ghosts and spirits to more familiar costumes. "Trick or Treat" was added when the miserly often refused to give.

TRUNK OR TREAT Help needed.

We need your help with:
>>Decorated Trunks-that day decorate your car, van, motorcycle, bicycle. Prizes awarded for the most original and spookiest trunks.
>>Individually wrapped candy that isn’t identified as "halloween" (leftovers can be used at other events) Note: we won’t set a follow up rain date. We don’t have room for the participants in our building.
Finally, we really need: **VOLUNTEERS to help on the day of the Trunk or Treat. CALENDAR IT NOW: October 23, 4-5:30 p.m.
