Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Once Upon a Holy Night
The thrill of hope...the weary world rejoices...a new and glorious morn. These lines from a beautiful old carol sound like they could have been scripted for our world today. Come worship with us this Advent season as we make room in our hearts for the good news of a babe born in a manger.  
 
The message on Christmas Eve (see details above) is "Fall on Your Knees," by Rev. Catherine Fluck Price. Sunday's message (December 30) is "Lessons and Carols" by Rev. Lenora Rousseau.
Wednesday Worship

There will be no 6:35 worship on December 26, but will resume on January 2.
Mission Box
Once again, 100% of our Christmas Eve offering will go to support a missional effort that extends far beyond Trinity. For many of us, Hurricane Michael may seem like a distant memory. For many persons living in the region where the storm did its greatest damage, though, life is still in shambles. This year, you have an opportunity to participate in a gift that will bring hope to these persons and families.  Every dollar received for the Christmas Eve offering will go toward helping these persons and families recover and rebuild. The Disaster Relief Team of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church has set up operations in the panhandle to steer this work of ministry. (text to give keyword: michael)

The Mission Box for Sunday is Trinity's very own missionary, Kathleen Coughlin, with Faithful Servant Missions. Faithful Servant Missions' goal is to improve the physical, educational, and spiritual health of those they serve in Costa Rica and Panama. Their overall vision is to help people develop a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. (text 2 give keyword: faithful) 
Trinity Holiday Office Hours
We will close at 12:30 pm on Christmas Eve and re-open on December 26. We will also close at 12:30pm on December 31 and re-open on January 2 so our staff may enjoy time with their families.
No Bull Bibles & Brew 
On the 1st Monday of each month (December 7) from 5:30 - 7pm, the 9:40 band will be playing Christian music followed by a time of fun and inspiring adult conversation about the Bible and the Christian faith led by Rev. Lenora Rousseau at Crafty Bastard's Restaurant and Pub.   If this is something that appeals to you, come! And, bring a friend for happy hour, all you can eat wings, as well as spirited music and conversation about God's great love and saving grace.
