Dear Trinity Episcopal Church, 

Maybe you can tell that I don't like it when things are quiet and slow. That's going to be especially true from now until Christmas!

This Sunday, November 19, the Daughters of the King are hosting a meet & greet for people interested in joining this religious order of women.

On Sunday, November 26, we will be celebrating the adoptions and baptisms of the Blancken family at the 10:30 service.

The Pipe Organ Extravaganza will be December 2 and 10:30 service on Sunday, December 3 will be dedicated to the glory of God and in thanksgiving for Ron Wyatt's tenure as Organist & Choirmaster.

The Parish Christmas Dinner will be Friday, December 8 and the Family & Kids Christmas party will be after church on December 10.

Then Bishop Fisher will be at Trinity for baptisms, confirmations, and receptions into the Episcopal Church on Sunday, December 17.

Then, finally, it'll be Christmas!

It's busy I know, but I can't imagine it any other way!

With joy,
