Adapted Bike Project

We are supporting the family of one of our children to raise funds in order to have access to an adapted bicycle from “You Can Ride 2” over the summer. This organization provides adapted bicycles for children with disabilities.

Update on our Syrian refugee family

In Syria, over 250,000 people have been killed, 12,000 of them children, millions are in refugee camps without access to healthcare, education, or proper sanitation. What can anyone do in the face of such suffering? Mother Teresa said:

“I never look at the masses as my responsibility…I can love only one person at a time…feed one person at a time. Just one, one, one…”

At Trinity Lutheran Church we are excited to welcome our recently arrived Syrian refugee family! Thank you to everyone who helped to provide furnishings, clothing and other basic material needs and to identify resources to support them as they settle into this community (i.e., family doctor, school, English lessons). We look forward to the opportunity to generously love our brothers and sisters from across the globe and invite anyone else that feels called to help as well. Donations can be made to “Trinity Lutheran Church Refugee Sponsorship Fund” and 100% of the money will be used to help resettle this family. Gift cards are also available if you would like to make a donation in the name of someone else as a gift.
