Our Church Life

Next Trinity News Deadline is Wednesday, February 18. Articles must be turned into the church office by 10:00 am on this date. Please e-mail submissions to trinityupc@dwx.com.

The Annual Congregational Meeting will on Sunday, January 25 following a Celebration Worship Service at 8:30 am. Breakfast will be hosted by the High School Youth in the Fellowship Hall during the meeting and children can enjoy breakfast and activities in the PATH. The Annual Report was sent by email; if you choose not to print it, printed copies will be available at the church office. Please have a copy with you at the meeting as a point of reference.  
Youth Sunday School will go on as usual this morning, but will end at 10:30 am so parents will need to pick children up even if the Congregational Meeting is still going on. 

TEST (Trinity’s El Salvador Team) will meet following the Congregational Meeting.  If you have even the slightest interest in learning more about the partnership that Trinity has in El Salvador, please join us. Next delegation:  June 18-25, 2015.  Deadline to commit to traveling:  March 1, 2015.  If you have an interest in traveling, please be sure to let us know.  All travelers to El Salvador pay all their own expenses.  If you’d like to help someone else travel, you may give a scholarship to help with that.  For all your El Salvador questions, please contact Betty Dyer.

Ana Circle (the evening PW group) will meet Monday, January 26 at 7:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.  We will be starting the new Horizons Bible Study, Reconciling Paul this month. Childcare is provided in the nursery. All women are invited to join us. Questions may be directed to          Margaret Blair at 491-0356 or mablair57@hotmail.com.

​​The Backpacks for Hunger Program, serving elementary and middle school age children in our community, is in need of food or monetary donations. This program provides food for the weekend for children who might otherwise have little or nothing to eat. Backpacks are filled weekly with food for six meals and two snacks. Sheets with a complete listing of foods used for this program can be found on the table in the atrium and attached to a food donation tub in the hallway of the PATH. For more information, you may contact Beth Leuwerke at 961-6655 or Kristine Nielsen at 961-5176.
