  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Feminine products
  • Diapers size 5-6

Please return your Share angel tree wishes by Dec. 4 at Church or by Dec. 8 at Share. Thanks so much for helping Share families have a Merry Christmas!

Look for the H2H Angel tree in Fellowship Lobby during December to help orphaned children in Honduras.


Crafts for a Cause

Turn your Christmas shopping this year into something more fulfilling than ordering online or trekking to the mall. Why not shop for a good cause at the Crafts for a Cause Holiday Bazaar, running Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to noon in the Fellowship Lobby? Everything we sell is made by Trinity members and all the proceeds go toward buying supplies for the Crafts ministry and to support Trinity’s missions in Honduras. You’ll find gourmet food gifts, handmade soaps and candles, artisan jewelry, Christmas crafts and even pet gifts.

Meanwhile, the crafts group will meet for two work sessions this month – Mon., Dec. 5 and Mon., Dec. 19 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124 to make the comfort items we provide to Fair Oaks Hospital patients. In addition, we will deliver 50 handmade flannel stockings and Santa hats as our special gift to families who welcome a newborn the week of Christmas. Special thanks to Nell Gilmore, Judy Osha, Zainab Kamara and Peggy Trapp for making the Santa hats.

Church & Society and the Missions Committee are once again collecting Safeway Saver Stamps: These stamps earn us free Farberware skillets, stockpot, pans for our Church mission projects and for Share. Collection boxes can be found in the Fellowship Lobby and in the Narthex. We will collect them until January 3.


Going Back to Honduras!

Trinity UMC is planning a trip to the Heart To Heart Children’s Village next summer. Planned dates for our mission trip are June 30 to July 8, 2017. Heart to Heart is home to over 100 children and youth in Porte Cortez, Honduras. Most of these children have been orphaned or abandoned over the last 8 years. This ministry provides food, shelter and a Christian education to all these children and has been supported by Trinity through donations, prayers and mission trips since 2011. Our mission team will participate in a project as well as spending much time with the children and youth. Anyone interested in participating in this trip should contact Pastor Keith Lee or Chris and Dan Moore.
