There are plenty of opportunities to put your gifts to good use at TRC. If you are interested in serving in some way, please email us at email@example.com.
With new families and young ones joining our church in recent months, the TRC Sunday School Ministry is looking for additional volunteers to join the teaching rotation. No prior teaching experience is needed, just willing hands and heart. For more information, speak with or contact Calvin Chu (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lizz Chu (email@example.com).
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
TRC will once again participate in Operation Christmas Child (OCC) this year. OCC is an effort that demonstrates God’s love to needy children around the world through tangible means by distributing shoeboxes of gifts during the Christmas season. Last year we were able to collect an amazing amount of toys and gifts to send abroad to children who would not have gotten a Christmas gift otherwise. Every year we’ve increased our giving and we are praying this year is no different! But we cannot do this without your help. The last day of collection is today (11/22). Please stick around after the Thanksgiving Luncheon as we pack and pray for the shoeboxes!
THANKSGIVING LUNCHEON (After service)
Join us for our annual Thanksgiving Luncheon after service today! Everyone is welcome to join the family meal. We will celebrate together with food (of course!) and an open time of testimonies. Afterwards, we will pack the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!
THANKSGIVING HOME-AWAY-FROM-HOME GATHERING
For those whose immediate family are geographically distant, we warmly invite you to celebrate Thanksgiving with your church family at the annual Thanksgiving home-away-from-home gathering. The gathering will take place on Thanksgiving Day, and for additional details, please contact David An (firstname.lastname@example.org).
