Church & Society

by Chris Wilbur

Church and Society is sponsoring a food drive for SHARE. The food pantry serves needy families in our community. The following products are desperately needed:

  • 2 pound bags of rice
  • cooking oil
  • flour
  • sugar
  • canned beans
  • canned fruit
  • pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • breakfast cereal
  • feminine products

Please leave your donations in the collection boxes located in the foyers of the sanctuary or in the Fellowship Building. Thank you for helping us take care of SHARE and the hungry, needy families in our area!

Special thanks to all who donated Movie Night items in June to Langley Residential Support Services. They are already putting them to good use.


Trinity’s mission team of eight departs July 20 for eight days in Honduras at Heart to Heart Children’s Village (H2H). The team includes Liz and Alexandra Raveling; Jake and Kaela Wilbur, plus four friends of the Wilbur family, the Church family. They will join with three others from H2H and the team will work with the kids at Children’s Village with summer fun activities including putting on a drama camp! We look forward to hearing from them on their return. In the meantime, please remember this team and those they will serve in your prayers.

Crafts for a Cause

craftsCrafts for a Cause continues to meet throughout the summer months to keep up with the demand for comfort items at Fair Oaks Hospital. This month, we’ll meet on Mon., July 13, and Mon, July 27 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. We’ll be working on surgery dolls and bears for children; and neck pillows, lap blankets and arm pillows for breast cancer and chemotherapy patients. We will also be working on hand-stamping cards for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House at Fairfax Hospital.

The craft group meets every other Monday night; everyone’s welcome, instruction and materials provided.

If you’re a knitter or crocheter, we have patterns for baby caps you can make at home. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse at 703-356-4896 or
