Trinity this week – Advent Peace

Hello Trinity Friends!
This Sunday we light the second candle in our Advent wreath – the candle of peace.  We also celebrate White Gift Sunday. You are invited to bring gifts, money and non-perishable food items on Sunday December 9th for Trinity’s White Gift Offering. These gifts will be brought forward during worship and will be donated to Trinity’s Food Shelf Ministries or Trinity’s Christmas Gift Bag Project. In the spirit of White Gift Sunday, a reminder that each of us has something to give – whether it be the gift of time for someone who is sick or lonely, sharing a talent, or reaching out to help others who are less fortunate.  Thank you for your generosity and for reaching out and sharing God’s love with others this Christmas season!
