Do You Need Help Reconciling Conflict?

Have You Experienced the "We Cloud"?
As you enter the Trinity Fellowship Hall and look to the right, you will see the “We Cloud” bulletin board. If you have a need, such as baby clothing, a ride to Boston, or you’re looking for someone to feed your cat while you’re on vacation, fill out the “I need” card with your details and contact information and post it on the “We Cloud” bulletin board. In the same way, if you have an item or service to offer, such as guitar lessons or the use of your 200-foot yacht, fill out the “I can” (or have) card and post it on the board. As you peruse the board, you may see a need or service that you can provide or a service or item you need. If so, remove the card and contact the person on the back of the card. In the spirit of giving, no money is to change hands. The "We Cloud" is not Trinity’s version of ebay or Craigslist. It’s just an opportunity to bless and be blessed. We hope you enjoy your “We Cloud” experience. Do you feel the love?

You must respond to that email (confirm) before you will start receiving your daily emails.
