Have You Experienced the "weCloud"?
As you enter the Trinity Fellowship Hall and look to the right, you will see the “weCloud” 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 “weCloud” 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 "weCloud" is not Trinity’s version of ebay or Craigslist. It’s just an opportunity to bless and be blessed. We hope you enjoy your “weCloud” experience. Do you feel the love?
Are You Getting Your Coffee Break Verses?
If you would like to receive your Coffee Break Verses (a quick devotional each day via email), you can click here. Once you sign up, you will receive a confirmation email. You must respond to that email (confirm) before you will start receiving your daily emails. If you don’t receive a confirmation immediately after signing up, or if you signed up for the Coffee Break Verses but haven’t been receiving them, it could be that the confirmation email that was sent to you ended up in your junk mail file due to filters, etc. If so, check your junk email file. Once you respond, you should start receiving the verses.
