This Sunday, we celebrate our welcome to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities through the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) program. Supporters of LGBTQ people and families are not the minority in the our denomination; they are the majority and that majority is growing. Join us this Sunday!

The Trinity Aid Bank supplies "moon kits" as a standard accommodation now. We have kits with pads, tampons, or a mix. Every kit contains enough menstrual products for an entire average cycle, some panty liners for just in case, a large amount of baby wipes, and some frilly products (like a small chocolate and our best lotions), all contained in a gallon ziploc bag so that nothing gets wet. I give away twice as many tampon kits as I do pad kits. They are always received with gratitude and a sense of relief. Please contact your local shelters and aid banks to see if they are already providing this vital service to the community, and how you can support it. Sometimes, it's not supplies they need but rather someone to assemble kits for them. Thank you for helping to alleviate the stress of homelessness. This is just one example of the kinds of help that are necessary and under-provided. Any help you can give is appreciated.

Join us as we continue our theme of welcome this Sunday. We will celebrate welcome across economic barriers, emphasizing the ways that people of all economic backgrounds have a place here. Some of these stories of welcome are highlighted in the "Stories from Trinity Aid Bank" in this month's Trinity Tidings.
