Good Afternoon Parents and Teachers!
Sunday school- Regular Sunday School!
Teacher and Youth Leader Meetings- Sunday November 19th after Church Teachers from 11:30 to 12 and Youth Leaders are 12-12:30.
Christmas Pageant- I have scripts for most of the kids, third grade and older, who signed up to be a part of the pageant. We had a bunch of kids sign up and I am super excited for you to read through your scripts. Keep in mind, there may be a few small changes in the final pageant. Remember that K, 1, and 2 kids will be sheep and preschool and nursery kids will be angels.
Youth Group- no Youth group Sunday; instead come to the mission trip potluck from 6:30-8pm.
Mission Trip 2018- I am actively preparing for next year’s mission trip to Houston. We have been in contact with the same Travel agent that Tara Smith uses for her school trips and I have spoken with Group to hold our spot. Because this trip has been very popular we are going to have to move quickly to put our deposits in before it fills up. Deposits of $100 per person are going to be due December 1. We will have the financial breakdown of the trip and the flights for you during the Mission Trip Pot Luck. Please make sure that you are prompt with these deposits. There will be no room for late entrants.
Also, this will be a multi-generational trip similar to our trip to New Orleans after Katrina. Anyone who is interested in going on this trip MUST participate in fundraising opportunities. Between the cost of travel and a week with Group Work Camps, this trip is going to be expensive. There will be no opportunities for scholarships without intense participation in fundraising. Students can go door to door. Make every effort to help defray the cost of this trip.
For anyone who is not interested in going to Houston next year, we are also going to be welcoming Matt from Camp Washington during the Pot Luck Mission Trip meeting on November 19th. He will come to discuss camp options with us and answer any questions you may have about summer camp at Camp Washington. Any Fundraising participation can also go toward a week at Camp.
We Are The Children Toy Drive- begins this Sunday!!! There are six little trees on the table in the narthex; each one represents an age group: Infants, Toddlers, Preschool, 5-7, 8-10, and 11-13. You can choose a boy or girl from each age group, shop for that child, and then bring the new unwrapped toy back to Trinity before the Pageant.
Calendar sales will begin December3rd and go through the end of the year.
See you Sunday!
