Hospitalizations

If you become hospitalized and would like your church family to know, please call—or designate someone else to call—the church office @ 695-1221. We need your permission to be placed onto the prayer list. Also, please let us know if you would like a Pastoral or Parish Nurse visit while in the hospital. Hospitals no longer automatically notify patients’ churches due to the Privacy Act.

Trinity’s Medical Device Lending Closet

If you find yourself in temporary need of an assistive device such as a walker, cane, crutches, or wheelchair, please contact Sue in the Parish Nurse office @ 695-1221, ext. 28. Lending is on a first come-first served basis. We accept lightly used equipment for the lending closet, with the exception of commodes.

O Lord my God, I cried out to you for help, and you healed me. – Psalm 30:2

EnhanceFitness Classes

Make plans to start out 2015 on the right foot! Come join our fun exercise classes held every Mon-Wed-Fri, 1-2 pm in Trinity’s Stolee Hall. Classes are led by Laurie Porter, a certified instructor, and participants get a great head-to-toe workout! Laurie leads us through exercises (chair or standing) to improve balance, aerobics, and strength. There is no set fee, but donations are accepted to help cover the cost of the instructor’s time and equipment. Suggested donation is $1 per class.

2015 Blood Drives at Trinity—Your Community Needs Your Help!

Please make note of the upcoming Blood Drives at Trinity (all are on Wednesdays, 1-7 pm)

  • February 25
  • May 13
  • August 5
  • November 18

The Blood Drives are administered through the Puget Sound Blood Center—Oregon & Southwest Washington Blood Program. The Blood Center sets up shop in the comfort of our own Memorial Chapel. Donors make lifesaving contributions every time they give blood. The entire process takes less than an hour from start to finish, including time to relax with cookies and juice after donating. Students ages 16 & 17 can donate blood with parental permission. There is no upper age limit.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. – Proverbs 3:5
