This year’s THANKSGIVING OFFERING will go to El Hogar, a children’s home and school in Honduras that Trinity has been supporting for many years.  El Hogar works with boys and girls who need a home, educates them so that they can find work, cares for them, and helps them to know that God loves them.  El Hogar is a safe oasis in one of the most violent and dangerous countries in the world. Make your check to Trinity Church with either “El Hogar” or “Thanksgiving Offering” in the memo, use your special Thanksgiving Offering envelope and include El Hogar in the memo. How much difference can Trinity make in the children’s lives?
