"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one..."
We're back in our individual groups this week. We'll continue the story of Joseph as he ends up in Egypt and gets a chance to interpret the dreams of others. Where will this gift take Joseph?

Get into the mood for the story by listening to a little Andrew Lloyd Weber .
Sunday's Adult Forum and Hospitality!
Today’s  Adult Forum (in the Parish Hall at 10:10 a.m.) continues our exploration of the 1950’s with a panel presentation by church members who were in Sunday School in the late 50’s early 60’s.  Sunday School students from the 1950's:  we need you for this panel discussion ! If you would like to participate please come with your memories and stories.

The first floor of Trinity House also hosts hospitality and conversation for adults.
New in the Pew - Prayer Cards
In each pew there are now blank prayer cards for children (or the young at heart) to write or draw their prayer requests upon. Put them into the offering plate during the service. There are crayons in the activity bags in the back of the church - or do what Natalee's kids do and go digging in Mom's purse for a pen.
Celebration of a Year of Faithful Giving and Pledge Ingathering
Sunday, November 24, 2019 at all three services
Please prayerfully pledge your time, talent, and financial support to help achieve Trinity’s Mission in 2020. A pledge is an estimate of your giving for the coming year that allows the vestry to set a budget and plan our ministries. Together we can build a strong foundation for the next 125 years! Return the pledge card that has been mailed to you, pick one up on Sunday, or pledge online using the link below.

Live Advent Wreath Making AND MORE on Sunday, December 1
The first Sunday of Advent annually brings this fun intergenerational event. People of all ages are welcome to participate together. Please let us know below if you plan to attend. We need you to bring in live greens from your yard and a pair of clippers the day of the event. For the cost of the floral foam bases, candle holders, and candles we request a donation of about $15 each.

But that's not all!!! The morning's events will also include cookies made from recipes found in historic Trinity cookbooks, hosted by the Adult Forum, bow making in support of the the youths' Christmas wreaths (see below), and if you don't want a live wreath, we'll have supplies to make candles from paper and cardboard!
Not to be confused with...Christmas wreaths!
Sign up to order our festive Christmas wreaths decorated by Trinity's youth. Wreaths are $30 each this year and will be available for pick up on Sunday, December 8. All proceeds will help support our Youth Mission Trip to West Virginia in June. Signup sheets are in the back of the church.

Picture Gratitude this Month with United Thank Offering!
Regularly practicing gratitude at home is a great way to improve mood, build relationship, and find hope and joy in the world around you. What better way to gear up for Advent? United Thank Offering has a Gratitude Challenge for the month of November asking you to take and post a photo each day of something you are grateful for following prompts. For example - something you utilize, or something you achieve. We may already be halfway through the month, but there's no reason to let that stop you!

If you don't have social media, or don't want to participate that way, you can still find a way you use the prompts. You could create discussion around the family table at breakfast or dinner. Or journal or draw about them on your own or with your household and share them with each other or a friend.
Lead at 9:15 worship
Would you like to be a leader at Trinity’s 9:15 service? Sharon Graham created a Sign up Genius for greeters and readers.
