The congregation of Trinity United Presbyterian Church is committed to serving our Lord Jesus Christ through worship, education, fellowship, stewardship and mission, being Christ-centered in all we do.

Our Church Life

The next newsletter deadline is Wednesday, January 21. Articles must be turned into the church office by 10:00 am on this date. Please e-mail submissions to

The Advent Room (west side of the Fellowship Hall) will be open one last Sunday on December 21 for your time of reflection and focus. The stations available will provide mindful meditation on your relationship with the "Christ Child." Treat yourself.

Mitten Tree - The Martha Morning PW has set up a mitten tree in the Fellowship Hall. Donations of mittens, hats, scarves, socks etc. can be placed on the tree through December 28 when they will be given to Helping Hand. Thank you.

Need a Christmas gift, office gift exchange or stocking stuffer idea? Yes, some of us still stuff stockings for our adult children! Check out the Don Justo coffee cart in the atrium for one pound bags, 10-cup sample bags, ceramic mugs, travel mugs and canvas bags. Those with Keurig machines can still use any ground coffee - see the flyer on the cart bulletin board. Select one or bundle together for all the coffee drinkers on your list. Don’t forget to tuck in a brochure that tells about this delicious fairly traded, organically grown coffee from Our Sister Parish in El Salvador. This is just one small way to support Trinity’s El Salvadoran family. Contact Denise Core if you need more, 961-4524 or

Christmas Joy Offering - The Christmas Joy Offering will be received on Sunday, December 21. This long standing special offering will be distributed equally to the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions and to support education at Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools and colleges. During this time of joy and the spirit of giving, please consider sharing your joy with others through this worthwhile cause. 

On Sunday, December 28 we will have only one Traditional Worship Service at 10:45 am
and there will be no Sunday School classes that morning.

Comforter Time - Come and help us make comforters for those who need a warm blanket. We will start on Tuesday, January 6 at l:00 pm in the church basement and meet each week through February. Don't sew?  Come and help cut, pin or tie.  Any and all are welcome to help. Call Sandy Denning with any questions at 961-6997.

Next Trinity El Salvador Delegation is June 18-25, 2015. Absolute deadline for getting your name on the list is March 1, 2015. There is a lot of interest being shown in this trip - both from Trinity folks and from those outside of Trinity who want to travel with us. If you want to assure that you get a spot, please do not wait until March 1, the trip may be full before that time.
