Wreaths- The Wreaths were supposed to be delivered on Tuesday, Nov 20th but Mike the Wreath Guy called and said they have been inundated with snow up in Lubec, Maine, and he wasn’t going to be able to make it. He is hoping to get here either Thursday(Tomorrow) or Friday, in which case the wreaths will be available for Sunday Service. But if the weather didn’t let up then he will not be arriving until Monday or Tuesday. Either way, we will send out a mass email as soon as the wreaths are available for pick up. Thank you for your patience!
Sunday School- During thanksgiving recess we have a video in the chapel, so we can give our teachers the Sunday off. If you would like to hang out in the chapel with Manda and your children during the service, you are welcome to join us.
Youth Group-NO Youth Groups this week for thanksgiving recess. Instead, you can join us on the Simsbury Celebrates Clean up. We will meet in the Welcome Foyer during the Peace. From there we will be driving to the parking lot at Simsmore Square (by Starbucks and Subway in Simsbury). We will be walking up and down Hopmeadow street before returning to Subway for Lunch. If you come clean up, you get to go skating with us in January!
Christmas Pageant: The Christmas Pageant this year is based on the song by Casting Crowns, Christmas Offering. We will be discussing all the things we can offer to Jesus at Christmas, as only Kids can. This is going to be another wonderful Pageant that your children and friends offer to each of us, please sign your children up in the Welcome Foyer by Drive Thru Coffee and tell all your friends and family to come see it!
Mission Trip- The Mission Trip for Next Summer is going to be New York City with Center for Student Mission (CSM). We have gone on a trip with CSM in Boston back in 2016. Unfortunately, the CSM center in Boston has closed so we are going to go to NYC this year. The Trip Dates are August 6-10, 2019. Like last time, we are going to be looking for at least three other adults to come on the trip. It would be extra helpful if those adults are willing to drive. We can have as many as 12 people on this trip, so talk with your kids and see if this is something they are interested in.
Soulfest- if CSM doesn’t suit you we are also going to be volunteering at Soulfest again. The Mylander’s have offered to let us join them at their camp site again. Soulfest is July 31- Aug 4. If you are interested, please contact Manda.
See you Sunday!
Family New Year’s Eve Party- At Trinity we have always done something fun for New Year’s Eve. For a long time we played Laser Tag, then we had some EPIC Rock’n Bowl Competitions, Back to Laser Taging, and last year we had the Gaga Tournament of all Gaga Tournaments. This year we are hosting a Family Game night! All Families are invited! So, bring your friends, good food, and your game face! From 6-9 pm on New Year’s Eve we are going to have a Gaga Pit for those into the more active games, Giant Jenga, Twister, Crafts, Board Games, All of it! It is going to be a Blast!! And even better, it is for the whole family!! (and you can still get home and be in bed before the ball drops) Sign up in the Foyer to bring food for the potluck, to let us know if you are coming, and don’t forget to bring a friend!
