  • Update on Security Measures

The new door latches ordered as part of our revised security procedures have been received and will be installed in the next few days.  Beginning on Sunday, December 4, we will start locking the front doors of the church at 10:40 a.m.  Attendants will remain at the doors throughout the service to assist late arrivals or those who need to exit prior to the end of the church service.  Please let the attendants know of your needs so that they can assist you.

  • FORWARD MOVEMENT ADVENT CALENDARS

Pick up your Advent Calendar in the narthex, or come by the office for one! We’d love to see your coloring progress in the Facebook group.

  • CHRISTMAS POINSETTIAS

We are approaching the Advent season, and the Altar Guild will be festooning the nave with the seasonal greens. On Christmas, we will also place poinsettias on the altar and around the creche for the nativity. These poinsettias may be dedicated in memory, in thanksgiving, or in honor of a person or event; the dedications will be printed in the Christmas bulletins. Poinsettia donations go towards the good work of the Altar Guild through the year. Forms are in the narthex and at the office, and are due by December 18th.

  • Advent Book Study

On Sunday, November 27th at 9:30 AM we will begin an Advent study of Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent by Amy-Jill Levine.  The book can be purchased either as a paperback or an e-book and is available from Amazon and other booksellers.  The author, Amy-Jill Levine, is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences.  Even though we do not think of ourselves as newcomers to Advent, this book study may be the first time many of us have studied the Advent stories from a Jewish perspective. Those who studied one of her books during Lent last year expressed interest in hearing her voice again during Advent. Please let us know if you need us to help you get a book, we will have limited copies available.

  • MORE THAN ENOUGH PLEDGE CARDS FOR 2023

If you have been unable to get your pledge card in, we will have them available in the narthex and office for you. If you have any questions feel free to ask a member of the Vestry.

  • ONE-DAY WORKSHOP AT THE WESLEY DECEMBER 10TH

The Rt. Rev. Sean Rowe, bishop of The Episcopal Partnership, will lead our diocese in a one-day workshop at The Wesley Center on December 10 in exploring adaptive techniques and strategies for laity and clergy to apply in today’s church.  

This workshop is a free event and open to all who are interested.  Please sign up by December 1st (contact the office for more information).

  • ANNUAL MEETING 2023

Our Trinity Annual Meeting is coming up in late January or early February. In the meanwhile, gather your photos from 2022 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 February.
