WOMEN'S MINISTRY - NEWS for JUNE

Team T-shirts were purchased and sent to the printer in May. We hope to receive our initial order of colored team shirts in June. You may pay for your shirt by placing your $10 check or cash in an envelope marked with “Team T-shirt” and dropping in the offering basket or stop by the church office and leave payment with Angie. **There is still time to get your shirt if you missed the first order, call the church office to add your name to the list of ladies that are still interested in ordering their shirt.

BSBPCC Baby Bottle Team Challenge continues through June 16, Father’s Day. Ladies are encouraged to pick up a baby bottle from the display in the Narthex, return it with an offering to their team’s box, and after Father’s Day we will announce the winning team!

Hospitality in June? Two Teams have hosted hospitality refreshments so far in 2019. Will another Team of Women host an entire month of goodies to encourage fellowship and hospitality? Sign up on the clipboard on the refreshments table in the narthex.

VBS Hygiene Kits— Alexis Wagner asked for help with a VBS service project for Blanco County’s children in foster care. Alexis would like to assemble 20 backpacks for kids in our county currently in foster care and a few extras for the Blanco County Child Protection and Advocacy Board to distribute as needed. Included in each backpack would be hygiene kits containing soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, washcloth and a comb or brush. With member donations of supplies, Sandy Switzer has collected enough items for the 20 hygiene kits requested by Alexis for the VBS Service Project. WOW!!

“Period Packs” Alexis also asked if Women’s Ministry might donate “period packs,” discreet zippered bags containing feminine hygiene supplies for the older girls’ backpacks. The ladies agreed to this great idea, and we are ordering supplies to have those packs ready for the VBS service project.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD UPDATE Sandy Switzer, along with generous donations from members, has coordinated the assembly of 63 Hygiene Kits for the Blanco Good Samaritan Center to give out to local children. She also has collected enough supplies to complete 125 Hygiene kits for Operation Christmas Child (OCC). Amy Jeanne Welton’s goal this year is to assemble 200 hygiene kits for OCC. So, please consider donating the following supplies still needed to complete a total of 200:

         75 washcloths      57 toothbrushes      37 large bars of soap      75 combs (sized to fit in a quart Ziploc bag)

Donations may be brought to the church office, Mondays through Thursdays, 9am-1pm or Sunday mornings in the collection box in the narthex.

BABY BOTTLE DRIVE FUNDRAISER: This year Trinity will again support the Bulverde/Spring Branch Pregnancy Care Center, a branch of the Hill Country PCC in Boerne. The BSBPCC serves families in our local community, which includes Blanco. The Mission of the BSB Pregnancy Care Center is to promote the sanctity of life and empower individuals to make Christ centered choices regarding pregnancy and sexuality, and to experience the healing presence and love of Jesus Christ. Since January 2017, when the BSBPCC moved to its current location in the Faithville Shopping Center on Hwy 46, they have offered free pregnancy tests, ultrasound exams, STD testing AND treatment, post abortion Bible studies and counseling, pre-natal and parenting classes, maternity & baby items, male mentorship, and sexual health education. For more information about the center, contact them at: info@bulverdepregnancy.org or 830-885-2277. Bring your bottles to worship on or before June 16th and leave in the plastic tub provided in the narthex or during the week you may leave it in the church office.

Trinity Women’s Ministry—TEAM CHALLENGE UPDATE:

The four TLC Women’s Ministry Teams are challenged to collect the most baby bottles for the BSBPCC. Ladies are encouraged to pick up a baby bottle and return it with offerings of loose change, cash or checks for the Pregnancy Care Center. Funds will be collected and counted by the center, we will only be tallying the number of bottles for our challenge. Winners of the challenge will receive special recognition. In the narthex are 4 collection boxes, one for each Team to return their baby bottle.
