Let Us Know If You Need Anything

Members of your TLC family are eager to make sure you have everything you need to be safe and connected to the church and others who love you during this time. Please contact Tammy Wright by email at twright@tlcwaupaca.org, or call 715-258-7688 if you need assistance with any of the following:

  • Grocery delivery
  • Medicine delivery
  • Technical support (e.g., accessing worship services or other online resources)
  • Transportation
  • Devotional materials
  • Adding your name/concern to a prayer list
  • Other … just let us know how we can help.

Ways You Can help Others

  • Pray for Residents of Bethany. As you have likely heard, Bethany has had a surge of COVID-19 cases among staff and residents, resulting in multiple deaths. Pray for the residents and workers. And, if you know people living at Bethany, reach out to let them know that you are thinking of them and to pray with them.
  • Pray for Our Church Leaders and Volunteers. Pray for the Church Council as it considers recommendations from the Health Committee and determines how and when we can safely begin to come together again for in-person worship. Pray for Youth Program Coordinator Collins Pritchett, who arrived in Wisconsin last Tuesday and is rounding out his first week of work in Waupaca. Pray for Pastor Andy, whose hearing has thankfully been improving. Pray for our volunteers who are helping in countless ways to provide ministry and worship in these challenging times.
  • Be Safe While Out and About. Total COVID-19 cases in Waupaca County rose by 15 in the past week to 94 as of yesterday. It is important to remain vigilant as you take steps to protect yourself, those you love, and the larger community. Maintaining physical distance and wearing masks can save lives. Remember that cloth face coverings made by volunteers are available in the open, entry level of the church building from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday-Thursday.
  • Blood Drive: Trinity is partnering with The Community Blood Center (CBC) to host a blood drive at church from 8 a.m. to noon this coming Sunday, June 28. We are in need of 30 donors for this drive. The CBC is the sole provider of blood products to more than 20 hospitals in the area, including ThedaCare-Waupaca. To make an appointment, call The Community Blood Center at 800-280-4102 or go to www.save3lives.org and enter code WA07.
  • Prayerfully consider contributing toward Trinity’s new, electronic sign. Pastor Andy explained in worship yesterday that Trinity is following through on longstanding plans to replace Trinity’s sign on Badger Street. Trinity member Vicki Jones, who for 23 years has voluntarily changed the letters on the existing sign by hand, is ready to move on from that weekly work, and the sign has been in need of repair since 2018. A new sign capable of communicating a multitude of messages on color, digital displays near the corner of Badger and Jefferson streets is a way to welcome the many people who pass our building each day into our ministries and spread the good news of Jesus in this era of ever-changing communication. See this Facebook post from last week to consider prayerfully how you can join those already making contributions toward the sign at different levels.
  • Learn about Institutional Racism and White Privilege: These terms can feel threatening and even make us angry … until we understand what they mean. Take time to learn about these issues that are suddenly receiving more attention. Here are some recommended resources to get you started:

Remain Current With Your Pledge If You Are Able

We are grateful to all who have remained current with their pledges (and more) at this time. Because of the generosity of our members, we have been able to adapt our ministries and to reach out to our community and help those in need.
Please consider continuing your weekly donations to Trinity as follows:

    • By mail: Send checks to church at 206 E. Badger St., Waupaca, WI 54981
    • By drop-off: Deposit offerings in the secure box just inside the south door nearest the church office; the office itself remains closed, but open hours for this limited area of the building are Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

The Word in Season

The Word in Season reflects on the themes of Sunday's texts with relevant meditations throughout the week. This devotional follows the Revised Common Lectionary that Trinity generally uses in worship. The new July-September edition is now available in the open, entry-level area of the church building from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Thursday. You can also email Tammy Wright at twright@tlcwaupaca.org or call 715-258-7688 to have it delivered to your home. Large-print versions are available.
