Trinity this week – Advent Joy

Hello Trinity Friends!
This Sunday we light the Advent candle of Joy – and what better way to celebrate Advent joy then watching the Sunday School present their Christmas Pageant: “An Animal Nativity”. The children have been working hard and are excited to share the Christmas story with you.  Caregivers and parents of children in the pageant, please remember there is a dress rehearsal tomorrow at 1 pm in the Sanctuary and the call on Sunday is 10 am in the gym.  Please remember indoor footwear, leggings or pants, and a plain shirt.  Although it has been our custom to have a potluck after the pageant this year we are NOT having a potluck or lunch after the service.  It has been a busy time for folk around here!  
Following the service at 1:30 pm, the J.O.Y. Bands will be presenting their Christmas concert: “A Most Wonderful Christmas”.  The sing-a-long starts at 1 pm.  Free will offering with all proceeds going towards the Warming Centre.Advent and Christmas Worship ServicesFriday December 21st• Longest Night Service, 7 pmSunday December 23rd• Choir Cantata: “One Silent Night”  10:30 amMonday December 24th • Christmas Eve Family Service – 7 pm• Christmas Eve Communion – 8:15 pmThe All ages Family service begins at 7 pm.  We celebrate the Christmas story with scripture, carols and a whole lot of joyful noise.  A brief Communion service will follow shortly after.  All are welcome to both of these services.  Our nursery is available for your convenience but will not be staffed on Christmas Eve – children of all ages are more than welcome at both services!
