Christmas stockings for children at the Presbyterian Night Shelter
On Rally Day, a group of Trinity members stayed in the Fellowship Hall to help with a service project and created Christmas Stockings children (infancy to age 18) staying in the Women and Children’s area of the Presbyterian Night Shelter. Trinity members have been generously donating items to put in the stockings, and the PNS itself has a large quantity of assorted toys to make sure they are well-filled. The remaining step is to meet at the PNS office building and fill the stockings for distribution.
We’ll leave Trinity at 1 p.m. and carpool to PNS administrative building. Trinity’s youth will be there, and all interested congregation members are invited to join us!! Contact Linda Perrin with any questions.
Trinity now has its own night to host games and refreshments at the Presbyterian Night Shelter. Our next opportunity next Tuesday, November 12. We will meet at Trinity about 6 p.m., carpool over to the shelter on East Lancaster, arriving back at Trinity between 8:00 and 8:30 p.m. Please plan to join us, and let Linda Perrin know so we don’t leave you behind at Trinity by accident!
Each month we need about: 400 paper napkins; 40 dozen (480) store-bought cookies, 400 plastic cups, 3 gallons of milk and 3 large containers of powdered lemonade mix. There will be a sign-up sheet in the Narthex the week before “our” Tuesday. Donated supplies need to be left (clearly marked PNS) in the church kitchen on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday (November 10, 11 or 12). Many games – checkers, Uno, Scrabble, Crazy 8’s, Jenga, dominoes – are already there, but we can always use more to replace lost or broken ones.
Room in the Inn Training
There will be a brief training session next Sunday, November 17, at Trinity for Room in the Inn, a ministry to the homeless in our community. We will meet in the Music Room (third floor) at Noon. A light lunch will be provided. The training will conclude by 2:00 pm.

They will be distributing turkey sandwiches as part of bag lunches to bus drivers, volunteers and others who are working on Thanksgiving Day. They need donations of turkey, rolls, cornbread muffins or dressing, cookies/brownies to be brought to the church by Thanksgiving Eve.

2013 Financial Year Soon Coming to a Close
As we continue our "Raising Faith: Tending the Vineyard" Pledge emphasis for 2014, we encourage you to consider your 2013 commitment to your community. When you receive your giving statement for 2013 YTD we hope you will compare that to your pledge and prayerfully consider if you are able to make that commitment. For those who are current, we thank you for your faithful stewardship and encourage you to consider an additional gift especially to our Raising Faith campaign to retire that mortgage as soon as possible. Thank you for your faithful stewardship of God's financial resources.
Two outreaches in our community have sent us an urgent request for brassieres, both new and gently used. All sizes are needed. Look for the PINK donation box in the narthex. (It is, in fact, hard to hold on to or regain your dignity when not completely dressed, right ladies?)
Food Pantries – SPECIAL REQUEST
Trinity member, Debbie Friemel, chair of the WestAid Board, sent a letter to Trinity with a special request for food donations. There are boxes in the narthex to receive your contributions. Monetary donations are also welcomed. Please give generously to WestAid and San Gabriel!
