Christmas Seals Donations Support Lutheran Haven
So many of you faithfully support Lutheran Haven with your prayers and gifts throughout the year and we (Lutheran Haven) rejoice in the Lord’s many blessings to you and through you.  It is truly your support that has enabled us to improve the lives of senior adults in a Christ-centered environment. Your kindness assures those who have served our Lord and the Lutheran Church are served well in their retirement…(many retired Lutheran pastors, teachers and missionaries). By your kind donation for Christmas Seals, YOU make that possible! All of us at Lutheran Haven extend our warmest, heartfelt wishes for a  blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year! Seals are available in the Narthex.

**TWO signed up, Trinity needs ONE or TWO more please!
Trinity has a tradition of baking about 200 mini loaves of bread to be placed on the altar, blessed and then sent home with families on Thanksgiving Eve - one to give, one to keep.  We need a few blessed bakers to bake the mini loaves at home and deliver back to Trinity wrapped and ready to go on Thanksgiving Eve afternoon (mini tins, baggies, ties and time required). Please contact Chanda if you’re interested. or 407-488-1919 x101.
Women’s Christmas Dinner
All women of Trinity are invited to purchase a ticket and attend the much anticipated return of the Women’s Christmas Dinner on Thursday, December 12 from 6-8pm. This year's theme is "Shine Like Stars at Peggy's Party" in honor and remembrance of beloved Trinity member, Peggy Trapp. Let’s come together for fellowship, Christmas caroling, a wonderful catered meal prepared by Green Coat Catering and served by men of the congregation, and a great reminder that “It’s still all about Jesus!!!” 
Tickets are $10 and will go on sale the weekend of November 2 & 3. Volunteers will be available after each of Trinity’s worship services that weekend to sell you a ticket. Don’t wait - we are limited to 80 seated guests this year, so please get YOUR dinner ticket before they are all gone!!! Let’s dress up a bit, but don’t go to the trouble of buying something new! Sunday best is great, or business attire.
Are you interested in hosting a table ? You will be responsible for heading a table, creating a centerpiece, and providing eight place settings of Christmas dinnerware or fine china and silverware. 
We are also collecting supplies to donate to The Morgan Center and Quest (Name brands please): 

Items for Quest: Clorox Wipes, Kleenex , Airborne Tablets, Vitamin C Gummies

Lay Leadership Summit
The Region 2 Lay Leadership Summit will be hosted by Abiding Savior Lutheran Church in Gainesville, FL, on Nov. 15-16. This special event is designed specifically for Lay Leaders. This FREE conference is sponsored by the Florida-Georgia District and is a place where lay leaders have the opportunity to learn and grow as you serve Jesus in your local congregation. Questions? Contact the District Office at 407-857-5556 or .

  • Equip, empower, and engage lay leaders of today’s church for effective ministry leadership.
  • Help one another discover their gifts and how to best use them to serve others.
  • Meet other congregational leaders to gain new ideas, support one another, and build inter-congregational relationships

You’ll have the chance to build a network of new friends who are working in the same areas of ministry and interest and just may have helpful suggestions to strengthen your current ministry.
  • Sessions at the Summit feature workshops and keynote addresses designed specifically to equip, empower, and engage lay leaders of the church, such as ministry leaders, committee leaders, professional volunteers, council members, elders, media coordinators and you!
