The Trinity Living Christmas Card On December 25 Trinity will present the Trinity Presbyterian Church Living Christmas Card! In lieu of a service on Christmas morning, you will enjoy scripture, music, photos, and Christmas messages from everyone in the congregation. The video will go live on YouTube Christmas morning so you can enjoy it anytime while celebrating His birth, exchanging gifts, or spending time with friends and family.

 

We want everyone to contribute to this special presentation. Here are a few ideas.

  1. Share your Christmas card

  2. Share your Christmas letter

  3. Record a Christmas greeting/message

  4. Record yourself reading your favorite Christmas story.

  5. Play your favorite Christmas song on an instrument.

  6. Read a Christmas scripture

  7. Share a favorite Christmas tradition

  8. Share a Christmas family memory

  9. Sing a Christmas song

 

You can submit your photos and videos to Neal Strand via email or we can help record your special message at Trinity after each service November 27, December 4, 11, or 18. Multiple entries are welcome (share your Christmas photo and play a song, record your favorite family memory and read a favorite verse)! Help make it a very special living Christmas for all to enjoy. Note: Since it will be shared publicly on YouTube, please be mindful of sharing personal details (for example first names only). If you have questions, contact the church office or Neal Strand.

Hello families! ...From your trinity deacons

Have you considered how you might be helpful at Trinity? At the same time have you been reluctant to volunteer because you are not able to commit to something long-term? The Deacons would like to talk with you! We are looking for members to serve as Care Partners, often on a one-time basis. James 1:17 tells us every gift is from God. We all have different talents and God-given gifts. They are all important and can be used to serve God’s kingdom.For more information speak with one of your Deacons: Kathie Wilkinson, Angela Roesler, Jane Willison or Jane Williams. We're excited to share the possibilities with you! Let your light shine!!!

Birthdays At Trinity On occasion, Trinity mails notes and birthday wishes to the congregation. Trinity also posts birthday month wishes to congregants in the church newsletter.
