Social Media Sunday, September 30th,THIS SUNDAY! Here at Trinity! Social Media Sunday started at Trinity Tariffville in 2013, as a way for parishioners to share faith online and invite others to come and see what God is up to at Trinity.

Tariffville Fall Festival- We are looking for a number of volunteers to help make the Tariffville Fall Festival a huge Success. 9 am- we are looking for a couple people to help load up the trailer with chairs, tables, trash barrels, tents, etc. All the things we need for the Fall festival will be carted down and unloaded on the green before church. Once Church is over we are looking for another set of helpers to come and help set up all the tables and chairs. We will be setting up the grilling station, the seating area, face painting, and the bounce house waiting line. Additionally, we will need grillers and servers for the hot dogs, face painters, bounce house attendees, and potentially some volunteers to sell pizza slices from Marco’s.
Sunday School- Start talking with your children about volunteering at the pumpkin patch.
Youth Group- No Youth Group this week due to the Fall Festival. Students can volunteer if they are looking for hours for school or community groups.
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.
Pumpkin Patch- I am sure you are not ready to think about the patch but if you have been to any store lately, you must have seen the Halloween decorations creeping up. Patch Set up Day is September 29th at 11 am. Please sign up to help cover shifts. The Calendar will be at the Tariffville Fall Festival, Patch Set up day, and in the Welcome Foyer where you will have ample opportunity to commit to covering shifts. Remember this is the largest fundraiser of the year and we want to make sure that all of our students are able to go on Mission trips if they want. Thank you for all your help with this patch and all of our Fundraising. You can also sign up right through SignUpGenius. The link is: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d4eadaa2aabff2-pumpkin1
