Announcements

Advent Wednesday Night Worship
          Using Holden Evening Prayer, we are focusing on the theme, Don’t Be Afraid, as we gather in preparation for the coming of the Messiah. Each Wednesday evening, we will take time to reflect on a relevant passage from scripture. Worship begins at 7:00pm and will end by 7:45pm. Our time of worship will be preceded by a light supper featuring “Bethlehem food,” from 5:30 – 6:45pm, with discussion at 6:15 about angels and divine visits in Scripture and in our lives. Come and enjoy the fellowship and reflection in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle.

2017 Offering Envelopes
          Offering envelopes for 2017 are ready for pick up in the narthex. Please do not begin using them until the new year. This will help us keep your contributions for 2016 and 2017 separated. If there isn’t a booklet with your name on the label, please let us know – drop a note in the offering plate or call the church office. 
 
Poinsettias for Christmas Eve
          On Christmas Eve, we traditionally have a multitude of smaller poinsettia plants. Each of these plants is $10. Use the envelope included in this bulletin to designate the person(s) you wish to remember or honor. Place the envelope in the offering plate, or mail it to the church office, with your payment. Deadline for ordering Christmas Eve poinsettias is Thursday, December 15. All remembrances, both memorials and honorariums, will be listed in the Christmas Eve bulletin. Your plant may be taken with you, after the 7:30pm service. Ten-percent of the cost ($1.00 per plant) will be donated to the Lena Pope Home.
 
Trinity’s Fifth Annual Progressive Dinner
          On Saturday, December 10, Trinity adult members and their guests will usher in the holidays with our fifth annual progressive dinner. Everyone begins, then divides into groups of 8-10 in a host home to enjoy an intimate dinner. Finally, everyone will meet together again for coffee, cordials and desserts. Please sign up to be a dinner guest and/or to serve as host for one of the three phases. Sign up sheets are in the narthex.

Trinity Staff Christmas Gift Envelopes Available
          It is a tradition at Trinity that members, who desire, contribute to a gift for the Trinity staff at Christmas. Envelopes for such a gift are available in the narthex. This gift is shared equally by all the staff and pastors. They appreciate you thinking of them in this holiday season.

          Carter Blood Drive is here today, in our parking lot, from 9:00am—Noon. We need at least 13 donors so they will continue to come to our facility. THANK YOU.
 
2016 Angel Tree Gifts
          The Morris Women’s and Children’s Building at the Presbyterian Night Shelter is full to capacity. They have 73 kids living there (birth to 19 years), and 22 of those are infants to 1 ½ years old! Please choose a tag from the Giving Tree in the Narthex, buy and wrap a gift for one (or more!) of these children, and place the tag on the wrapped gift. We need to have those gifts back by the end of 2nd service on Sunday, December 11, in order for the gifts to be distributed. This is a unique way to Share God’s Love and Grace, and no child should have to feel left out on Christmas!
