TRINITY NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

THE BISHOP IS COMING TO TRINITY TO HEAR FROM YOU

ON THURSDAY EVENING, DEC. 7, Bishop Stokes will come to Trinity for a very important town hall meeting to discuss the future of our church. Thankfully, Trinity most certainly has a future — but it is one that will involve change. Discussions are under way to explore the potential of "yoking" Trinity with a neighboring Episcopal parish, so that both may share a full-time priest. To learn more about this concept and have an opportunity to discuss your questions and concerns with the Bishop Stokes, it is vital that you join us in the church at 7 p.m. on Thursday Dec. 7 for this meeting. All are welcome and light refreshments will be served.

Join us in church on Sunday. Holy Communion is open to all who wish to receive -- all are welcome at Christ’s feast. Join us for light refreshments and conversation after the service. Click here for our Visitor's Guide and here for our events page.

 

PRAYER LIST UPDATE -- The prayer list for the Sunday Bulletin is refreshed on a regular basis. Please remember to notify the church office promptly of any names you would like added or retained. Thanks!

COOKING CLASSES -- Have fun learning to create some great dishes while also providing meals to the families of those battling breast cancer, through the program Breast Intentions. For more information, call Judy Ramsey at 732-335-8852.

PARENTS! Want an easy to use and access tool to help build on the faith lessons taught at Trinity?  On the web, visit: http://standrewsfish.weebly.com/worship.html.http://thebeginnersbible.com/kids.php

MACARONI MONDAYS - Have replaced our Meatloaf Mondays. Call the office to find out how you can help out St. Mark's in Keansburg in their ministry of feeding the hungry.

ALTAR FLOWERS:  The flower chart for 2017 has been posted. The donation of flowers is a wonderful way to mark an anniversary (birth, marriage, etc.), to give thanks for the answering of prayers or to give thanks for the life of a loved one. Suggested donation: $30. 

COUNTERS NEEDED:  Please consider becoming a counter. If we can get another team of two people, you would only have to count once a month.   Please see Rick Frazier or Eric Lesniak.

USHERS NEEDED:  Please consider becoming an usher.  You would only have to usher once a month.  No experience needed.  We will train. See or call Wendy Goldstein at 732-566-2638, if interested. 

The Schedule for All Those Who Serve is available in the Narthex. 

SHOP RITE AND STOP & SHOP GIFT CARDS:  Remember that purchasing either the $25 or $50 gift cards is a seamless way to help raise funds for Trinity, and help with your food spending budget.   Please see Pam Gunter at 8 AM or Barbara England at 10 AM on Sundays.  The cards are available Tuesday through Thursday from Ellen in the Trinity Office.

FROM THE DIOCESE -- 'Discerning Our Common Call," a new program launched by the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey, is open to all parishes and individual parishioners who wish to participate. Follow this link for a video message from Bishop Stokes and full details.
