Events at Trinity Church: We are now entering the season of Advent Advent is the liturgical season that occurs four weeks prior to Christmas, beginning on Sunday, November 30th and ending the day before Christmas. It is also the beginning of the Church year. The name is derived from a Latin word for "coming". Advent is a time of reflection and preparation for the coming celebration of our Lord's nativity, and for the final coming of Christ "in power and glory".

Bev Archer and Jill Garmire are collecting items for the Blue Star Mothers to send to our troops. The collection box is in the Parish Hall. Any packs of goodies are welcome, i.e. jerky, drink mixes for bottled water, pop tarts, small cans of fruit or soup with pop top cans, candy, personal items like nail clippers, hand sanitizer, tissues, razors etc. If you have extra Christmas cards or birthday cards, we are collecting those also so the Service Men and Women will have cards to mail home.
Blue Star Mothers are also collecting new or gently used stuffed animals to award as prizes for Veterans. The Veterans like to give them to their children and grandchildren.
