MOTHER'S DAY & FATHER'S DAY CARDS
Download, print, color and share these Bible-based cards for Mom & Dad:
CHEER CARDS & LETTERS
Trinity has members and friends who are continually homebound (and many who are unable to have visitors under current conditions).
Write letters of encouragement or make and decorate cards.
Use phrases such as “God Bless You,” “Jesus Loves You,” “We are praying for you,” “We are thinking about you,” and add positive Bible verses (you can look some up at www.Biblegateway.com).
Email Secretary@TrinityLombard.org and request a list of addresses to mail cards (please state how many cards you have made) or request arrangement for a pick up of the finished cards.

Sharpie marker or paint pen to write on rock
