The Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival will celebrate the holidays with A Bach Festival Christmas on Friday, December 1 at 7:00pm. The performance will take place in the newly completed concert hall in the Whitesel Music showroom ( 1592 CF Pours Drive, Harrisonburg VA ). The concert is free and open to the public; donations will be gratefully accepted to benefit the Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival.

Prayer Requests Bowl: A glass bowl saying "Prayer Requests" is available for our guests at Noon Lunch.  It is on a card table along with paper and pens in the back of McCracken Hall.  If one of our guests has a prayer on their heart, they can write it down and put it in the bowl.  If anyone sees a prayer request in the bowl, they can take it and make that prayer a part of their own prayer life.  I'm inviting anyone in the congregation or visiting Trinity to use the prayer requests bowl to submit their own prayers or to take prayers out of the bowl and pray over them.  If you have questions or suggestions, please contact gingerwarrick0@gmail.com or ctucker59@gmail.com .  

What Keeps You Up At Night (WKYUAN), the Adult Sunday School class, will meet in McCracken Hall Sunday’s at 10:00am. Grab a cup of coffee in the Foster Room and join us for heartfelt conversation. Our question will be “What do you see is a personal and/or Church (meaning Trinity) response to how a free nation deals with diversity?”Guidelines have been created by the group so that all will feel welcome to join in and participate in the discussion: 1) No one will be allowed to advocate bringing others to see their way. 2) No one will feel pressured to give up the ground he or she stands on. 3) Conversation is confidential but, you may share what has been said in class without using names. 4) You must be respectful of different views. 5) Conversations may continue for several weeks. Joe Fiechtl and Gospel du Jour will join this class to show the parallels between our life today and life in the Bible. During the week, think about the question and join the class letting us know WKYUAN. Jim Manchester, Virginia Gillock, and/or Muffie Newell will facilitate the class. For questions or concerns please contact Muffie Newell 886-9132 or formation@trinitystaunton.org .
