Crafts for a Cause, Book Chat, & More

craftsA big thank you goes out to everyone who supported the Crafts for a Cause Holiday Bazaar last month. We raised more than $2,000, which will buy supplies for our projects as well as support Trinity’s mission efforts in Honduras and in Ethiopia. The crafts group also had the pleasure of making 50 felt Christmas stockings and Santa hats for the newborns at Fair Oaks Hospital. The parents and hospital staff always love seeing the infants sent home in such cute outfits. Special thanks to Judy Osha and Ann Case for making the Santa hats.

This month, we’ll meet on Mon., Jan. 5 and Mon., Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. We have moved down the hallway to Room 124 and we invite you to come check out our new workroom. In addition to our usual projects of shelter blankets and hospital bears, dolls, and pillows, we will be adding a new project – small pillows and lap blankets for the chemotherapy infusion lab. Our work sessions embrace a wide range of activities and skill levels, from cutting and sewing fabric, to stuffing and stitching. Newcomers are welcome! For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.



bookchatThe Trinity Book Chat will meet on Tuesday, January 13, to discuss Under the Wide and Starry Sky, by Nancy Horan. This historical novel spotlights the loving, tumultuous partnership of Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and his Indiana-born wife, Fanny Osbourne. Please join us at 6:30 p.m. in the Library for lively conversation and dessert. Reading the book isn’t even required! Contact Kathy Maher.


thanks_9908cDear Trinity Family,

I am so appreciative of the love, prayers and support I have received from Trinity members. The meals we received were a huge help to both Bill and myself. We enjoyed each and every one.

The flower arrangement was beautiful and such a morale booster. Who wouldn’t feel better looking at God’s creation?

Thank you so very much.

Blessings to all,

Peggy Trapp
