Christian Senior Ministries - Open Board Positions

If you would like to serve on the Board for Christian Senior Ministries representing Trinity, Genoa, please see Eileen Fode or call her at 815-895-9625.  She and her husband are resigning their positions on this board after many years.  Trinity will need 2 new people to     attend meetings and help with the fundraisers.


Amos 7:8 – “And the LORD said to me, "Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said, "Behold, I am setting a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel; I will never again pass by them.” One of the sins for which the Lord condemned the people through Amos was a disregard for the call of kindness, charity, and generosity toward the weak and lowly. We can see here how seriously the Lord sees this! And that’s no surprise when we consider how God’s activity toward us is built on kindness, charity, and generosity. To act otherwise is to act against the Lord’s own nature.


Food Pantry

Glory be to God!  Thank you for your recent donations to the          Genoa Food Pantry.   Your continued support helps those in need in our local community. 


Top Dog Training:

Vicki Seisser will be attending Top Dog Training in support of our Comfort Dog Ministry the Week of August 20th along with seven other Top Dogs.  Once this training is completed, we will be able to start on our Ministry Plan.  Please pray for a successful training and learning and listening for our Lord's direction.


Thank You

A big THANK YOU goes out to Brandy Guptail for filling in as our Trinity Office Manager the last three months.  Brandy learned the position very quickly and did a great job.  Her willingness to help Trinity out during a time of need has been very much appreciated.  Welcome back also to Amanda Scott who returned to work July 2nd.  Trinity is blessed to have such talented and faithful members serving our church. 


Our thanks go to Fred Goltermann for his generous donation of various eating utensils, cups, etc. - The Ladies Aid
