Manna Food Distribution
A big "Thank You" to the 30+ who came out Saturday, October 10, to help in the Manna Food Distribution at Capstone Church. Together we bagged up and gave out over 5000 pounds of food to the needy in the Anderson area. This event was organized by AIM (Anderson Interfaith Ministries). Holy Trinity sponsored not only the volunteers but the $300.00 to cover the cost of the food trucked in by the Golden Harvest Food Bank. We are also grateful to those from the congregation with pickup trucks who carried tables and chairs to and from this event, as well as cardboard and pallets. Thanks to all for being the hands and feet of Christ!

Congregation Workday Saturday September 19
We had a cool early morning to start our workday that slowly warmed up. We were fueled by a delicious breakfast prepared by the HTLC Youth crew, Katie Fischer, Albert Yap, Amy Goodson, Beth Fischer and Kim Yap. After breakfast, we were able to accomplish most of the planned projects. Numerous wheelbarrow loads of dirt were removed to lower and grade the height of front plant area. Some of the dirt was used to fill in low spots in the lawn next to the Library. The Sasanquas in the front and along both sides of the Sanctuary were trimmed. The hollies around the Education Building were trimmed and two dead holly bushes were dug out. The area at the sides of the Columbarium was filled with soil and graded. The rose bush was pruned and fertilized. The Fellowship Hall side garden was weeded and plants trimmed. The Indian Hawthorn shrubbery lining the rear fence was trimmed. At the Luther House the shrubbery in front and at the side were trimmed and beds weeded. The two dead Red Tip bushes along the driveway were cut down. In addition, Christa Mollgaard cleaned the Fellowship Hall kitchen cabinet doors.

Luther House Roof Replacement
After several days of heavy rain last month, water has been leaking into the Luther House kitchen at the doorway to the laundry room. The roof exterior was inspected by a roofing representative and roof replacement was recommended since any partial repair could not be guaranteed because the location of water entry could not be determined. The roof shingles are brittle and worn out. We estimate the shingles are twenty plus years old. Also the flashing has pulled away from the chimney and the rubber vent seals have deteriorated and pulled away from the vent pipes. Cost includes installing 30-year architectural shingles, ridge vents, water shields on all valleys and replacing any damaged underlayment. Rickey Vickery Roofing replaced the roof on September 22. The cost was $3,600 which includes a $200 church discount.
