THIS WEEK AT TRINITY

Our final mid-week service of 2018 is Wednesday.  Join us at 12:05 p.m. for Holy Communion followed by a potluck lunch and fellowship. At this time, we will also bid a fond farewell to Fr. Stuart Hoke, who has graciously served as our supply priest for the Wednesday service twice a month since August.

Prepare the Way: ‘Keeping a Holy Advent’ – Father Jay is leading a weekly Advent discussion in the parlor between services, 9:20 to 10 a.m. The discussion will follow the scriptures appointed for each week, highlighting their importance for us in keeping a holy Advent as we prepare the way for the coming of Jesus at Christmas. In preparation for Sunday’s lesson, here is a link to the lectionary:  4 Advent 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Christmas Eve Reception – There will be a reception, hosted by The Daughters of the King, following the service on Christmas Eve in honor of Father Jay and Lisa Bruno.  Father Jay has faithfully served Trinity as our priest for the past year and a half.  We are so very grateful to have been blessed with his presence at our services.  The Daughters will provide punch, wine, etc.  We would like everyone to bring finger foods, cookies, or anything else yummy to help make this a festive occasion!  Please join us after the Christmas Eve service to thank Father Jay and Lisa for their time spent with us here at Trinity in the service of the One who came to us on this most holy of nights. – Gina DeMoss
