November: We Are Thankful

"You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God." ~2 Corinthians 9:11-12

Over the past 40 years, the Trinity Family has served God's people in many ways in our local, national and international communities. As we approach Thanksgiving day, it is fitting that we recognize, honor and give thanks for the students, parents, faculty, staff and the administrators who have so generously given of their time, talents and treasure to make a difference in the lives of so many in need.

Whether it was bringing a smile to the face of a child or elderly person at Christmas, donating blood to save lives, working to feed the poor, donating to help people in disasters or any other of a multitude of causes, the Trinity community has stepped up each time the need was put before them.
