UMW is collecting gloves for distribution at the Trinity Christmas dinner. Black gloves for men are the most needed but all gloves will be accepted and given away to those in need as long as supplies last.

Sunday, December 17 – Membership Sunday & New Member Dinner
From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world through Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Year-round volunteers support these efforts across the country.
Shoeboxes and some supplies are in the Welcome Center. You may use your own shoeboxes or purchase them from Hobby Lobby or the Dollar Stores. We ask that you please do not gift wrap them shut! New in 2017: No toothpaste, no candy, no edible items. Children’s t-shirts, socks, gloves, underwear, etc., may be included along with toys. The shipping contribution per box is $9. Final collection will be Nov. 8th.

REMINDER: Fifth Sunday—Next week, October 29 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 This verse from Jeremiah serves as the foundational promise that guides the work of the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home. The children and youth in their care come in the midst of chaos, struggling to navigate the broken pieces of their lives. Your 5th Sunday Offering helps provide Florida’s most vulnerable children and youth a safe place to call home and the tools they need to turn those broken pieces into a beautiful mosaic that reflects the treasured person God has created.

This is a special program for children ages 3 through 2nd grade during the 11 a.m. service. Children’s Time provides a fun environment for kids to explore their faith through play, while giving their parents time to be more fully engaged in worship. Children will have an opportunity to pray, hear a short children’s message, enjoy a snack, participate in service projects, as well as sing, dance, and play. Children will be dismissed from worship immediately following the Children’s Message. Preschool (VPK) gather in room 203 and Elementary (K-2nd grade) gather in room 202. If today will be your child’s first time attending, please escort him/her from the sanctuary to the classroom to meet the leaders and provide us with the necessary contact information. At the end of worship, families are asked to make picking up their children their first priority.
