Mask Protocol 06/30-07/07
In Porter County- community level is Low.
· If Green (low transmission), mask wearing is voluntary based on individual choice with one exception. Since the Choir Loft is a small, confined area with no air circulation, masking will continue to be required for anyone singing from/ the Choir Loft.
VBS 2022 Canceled!
We are sad to say that Trinity Lutheran Church will not be able to hold Vacation Bible School as planned (July 5-8). This decision to cancel is painful and comes about only because of the confluence of two factors: 1) very low enrollment (during a holiday week) on our end and 2) organizational problems on the part of our staffers from Luther Road.
We apologize for any problems this causes with individual schedules. Pastor Tim expresses his personal disappointment that he will miss the community formed as the kids, helpers, crew leaders, and adults all work together.

April Pantry Report
In April 153 families helping 326 people were taken care of at the pantry. Regular pantry Easter baskets were given on Monday and Wednesday before Easter Sunday and the FOP Lodge #76 delivered 35 boxed Easter meals on Saturday. At total of 72 Easter ‘dinners’ which included a choice of ham or turkey were given out. Plans are being made for the storing of the postal boxes that will be collected on May 14th. Pantry volunteers pick up the boxes at the main post office and our crew of volunteers bring them to the pantry location. The Shop managers have offered a major area in the resale shop for storing many of the boxes until pantry volunteers can sort the food and return the boxes to the post office. THANK YOU SHOP LADIES! No food items are being requested for the pantry now since the big collection is expected in May. Items for Kid’s Kits will be needed for June distribution but even that request is put ‘on hold’ for now due to limited space for storing those items and the expectation that a number of ‘kit’ items will be in with the postal drive food.
A huge ‘thank you’ must be sent to the postal carriers who pick up the food items from mail boxes, for the many sorters at the post office, the large number of volunteers picking up the food from the post office for their various pantries and to the people donating to this awesome project. Many families in the area will benefit from all these efforts.
