Advent begins on Sunday, December 1. Each year Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas. The word Advent means “coming.” Advent is a season that helps us spiritually prepare to celebrate Jesus’ coming as a baby long ago and to remember the promise that Jesus will come again at the end of time. There’s much to do to get ready for Christmas – shopping, baking, concerts and parties. But Advent encourages us to consider our inward preparation. Worship, prayer, study and fellowship provide time to reflect on the greatest gift ever given: Jesus our Savior. Join us for worship and our Advent sermon series, The Gifts that Matter Most.
The Gifts That Matter Most

Earth and Stars Sunday Morning Discussion
For further reflection on the gifts of peace, hope, love and joy, join the Earth and Stars morning discussion group “Almost Christmas: a Wesleyan Advent Experience.” For more information about this group, and others meeting throughout December, visit the Adult Ministry page.

Living Stones Historic Preservation Christmas Tour - December 6
Share the gift of spaces that are beautiful, inspiring and awesome by inviting friends, co-workers and neighbors to attend the Living Stones Historic Preservation Christmas Tour. The Christmas Tour will be December 6th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Begin at any of the four stops: Trinity UMC, First Christian Church, First Baptist Church, and St. John’s Episcopal Church. Each stop includes light refreshments, music and historic churches beautifully decorated for the holidays. Freewill donations benefit Living Stones.
Christmas Caroling - December 8
Share the gift of music and join us for caroling downtown after worship on December 8, around 11:45 am. We will walk downtown and plan to carol for about 45 minutes. Afterwards, we will pick a restaurant to eat lunch together. If you cannot stay for lunch, you are free to leave after caroling.
Birthday Party for Jesus - December 22
Children’s Worship on December 22 will include a birthday party for Jesus. Children are welcome to bring a gift to place under our mitten tree. Gifts (if you are able) should be new winter items to be given to Miller Elementary School (see more about the Mitten Tree on the Serve page).

Trinity's Honey-Do Jar List
I imagine most of us have heard of that imaginary jar holding the list of the requests we make of our spouses with regards to household tasks. Well, our church “household” also has many tasks that need to be done. Our online “Trinity Honey-Do Jar" lists current maintenance needs: jobs that can be completed in a 1-2 hour framework on a flexible schedule with minimal skills and supplies. If you click on a link to volunteer for a task, Bob Lilly (our volunteer maintenance “team captain”) will follow-up with you by phone or email to insure you understand the task and have all necessary supplies. You will need to complete your task within two weeks of your sign-up date.
