Announcements for Week of December 5th

Welcome to our Guests!

There are no strangers here, only friends we have not met yet! Here’s our weekly announcements.

  • Pledge Cards – If you have not completed your pledge card for 2022, there is one on the back of the bulletin. Please complete it and place it in the Offering plate.
  • Small Group Book Study – We are in preparation to establish a book study for Bishop Jake’s new offering, Looking for God in Messy Places. Please contact Jan Flynn (318)332-3387 if you are interested. A couple of books are still available for purchase.
  • Advent Book Discussion –December 12, 9 am in the Parish Hall – God Is in the Manger: Reflections on Advent and Christmas is a short book of daily readings taken from Scripture and from the writings of 20th-century pastor and teacher Dietrich Bonhoeffer. On Sunday morning, Dec. 12, at 9 am, join some other readers to talk about the book and the season. Then mingle at coffee hour before the service. The book is available at most online venues in paperback and ebook.
  • Community Prayer Services will continue on Wednesdays through Advent: December 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd at 12 noon in the church.

  • Forward Movement Advent Calendars – Advent Calendars start today, and are in the narthex. Take one home to post and color with your family!
  • Poinsettia Dedications – Forms are in the narthex for poinsettia dedications, which will be listed in the Christmas services bulletin. We do not have individual dedications during Advent or Lent; not simply for decoration, dedicating flowers provides funds for the Altar Guild to maintain the church’s accoutrements.
  • CASA Christmas Adopt An Angel – All of our Angels have been adopted! We thank you for choosing to support the children represented by Court Appointed Special Advocates this holiday season. You can bring your wrapped gifts to the office or drop them off at the office library on Sunday mornings. CASA staff will be coming to pick them up after Thanksgiving.
  • Annual Meeting 2022 – Our Trinity Annual Meeting will likely be the last Sunday in January, if the schedule is otherwise clear; mark your calendars, more to follow. In the meanwhile, gather your photos and send them to the office, and be in prayer considering service on the vestry. Please contact Mother Suzanne if you are interested in that, or in attending the diocese convention as a delegate in March.

You can also read our announcements in our weekly church email newsletter. This week’s copy of TEC News is here.
