November Update from Trinity Galewood
Trinity Galewood is thrilled to announce we plan to go ahead with our annual fall party on October 31, hosting an all-outdoor, masked and socially distanced event. The fall party, which was our church’s first impact event in the neighborhood, has become a much looked-forward-to activity among area families. This year’s event will feature a one-way trail of contact-less games and a touchless candy stop. With so many restrictions on area kids and in-person schooling being off limits since last March, we especially wanted to give assurance that Trinity Galewood is still a place they can come and find a welcome. (We do hope to get back to our midweek, after school programming for neighborhood kids as soon as Lovett School goes back to in-person sessions, but that likely will not be until sometime in 2021.)
Legal Aid Clinic
Trinity Galewood’s Legal Aid Clinic reopened the second Saturday morning in September and already is seeing larger numbers than last winter before it closed. One person came for help because someone on a bus overheard him talking about problems with his landlord and told him he knew our church had a legal aid clinic that might help. Another came because a Trinity Galewood Legal Aid Clinic sign was seen in the front yard of one of our members. Trinity is blessed with members who are attorneys willing to use their unique skills, under guidance from the wider Administer Justice and Together Chicago organizations, to love like Jesus by helping people find a path through their legal struggles.
New Field Worker
With Concordia University conducting classes mostly online this semester, Trinity was very happy to be assigned a field worker from CU’s Director of Christian Education program. Brian Krohmer (in photo) joined us in September as our new field worker. He is from Ohio and in his junior year at Concordia. Brian was an occasional visitor at Trinity Galewood pre-COVID so knew this was where he wanted to gain some direct experience. The first semester of a field worker, primarily is spent observing other ministry staff and volunteers. Brian will become more involved as a leader in Trinity’s ministries as time passes. At the end of a second year of field worker experience, Brian would be expected to create and implement a project on his own. For right now, Brian is observing and assisting our children’s ministry director, Ebony Davis, in the new weekly youth group she is getting underway. Greet him and introduce yourself when you see him at church.
