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, November 19. Articles must be turned into the church office by 10:00 am on this date. Please e-mail submissions to trinityupc@dwx.com.

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 2. Please remember to turn your clocks back one hour.
 
CONNECT- On Sunday, November 2, all adults will attend one class during the church school time (9:40-10:30 am). Come and hear Susan Lawrence, a storyteller and author from Carlisle. Our theme for church school this year is "Repair" and Susan will use her creative interpretation, specifically on the topic of guilt and grace. Her novels have benefited Pour International, a mission that builds children's homes in Swaziland. Invite neighbors and friends to this unique opportunity.

Cards Made with Love, a new card making ministry at Trinity, will meet Tuesday morning at 9:30 am for two hours. Bring any items you might have to assist you, but many art supplies will also be available for this creative endeavor. Newcomers are always welcome to the southwest room of PATH.

Martha Circle Presbyterian Women will meet on Wednesday, November 12, at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall. Beth Leuwerke is our hostess and Sue Kimball will lead us in our continuing study of Reconciling Paul, A Contemporary Study of 2 Corinthians 1:2.  Please join us for fellowship, study and refreshments. All Presbyterian Women are invited to attend our morning Martha Circle PW or the evening group.  Hope to see you there.
 
Please join the Indianola Green Team (which includes 7 Trinity members) and Simpson Forum for a Free Event: Peterson Toscano, Scholar and Climate Change Activist, on “Climate Change: What’s Faith Got to Do With It?” Wednesday, November 19, 7:30 pm at Kent Campus Center (Hubbell Hall), Simpson College. In this lively and informative lecture, Peterson Toscano speaks about the many ways religious institutions can build community and serve the public as we experience  vast changes in the world around us. Peterson highlights the roles faith communities have played during times of crisis in the past, and he outlines models that can transform our place of worship into a vibrant community hub for learning, support, disaster relief and most importantly–hope.
