Beloved siblings in Christ,
Today marks one week until Christmas eve! Thank you to all of you who have given so generously this Advent. Along with our friends at Cityscape Home Mortgage, you provided hundreds of toys for foster children across the state; you ensured each member of each immigrant family we serve through the Social Justice Commission received a $50 Walmart
gift card, and delicious cookies prepared with love; you have begun bringing warm winter gear for the guests of Iron Gate, and many of you are making Christmas and end-of-year gifts to support the church. Your generosity is truly inspiring. It will undoubtedly be strange, not being together on Christmas eve and Christmas day, but we will be streaming services on Facebook. You can watch the video Christmas pageant at 5:00pm on Christmas eve, followed by the service at 5:30pm (or at your convenience any time after 5:30pm). On Christmas day, the service will be streamed at 10:00am, and can be viewed anytime thereafter. If you're interested in learning what goes in to filming services at
Trinity, watch this behind the scenes video, and then thank our amazing volunteers who make it possible. On Sunday, December 27th, Bishop Paulson is providing a pre-recorded service from OKC. That will still go live on our Facebook at 10:00am, as per usual. Because we will not be filming our own service that day, we are able to give away our beautiful poinsettias before
the 27th, as originally planned. You may stop by the church from Dec. 22nd - 24th from 9:00am to 3:00pm, and on Sunday 27th from 11:00am to 1:00pm to collect one for yourself, or to share with a loved one. Trinity yard signs are in! Stop by the church during opening hours to collect your pre-ordered (and pre-paid) signs. We ordered extras so if you hadn't ordered but still want one, you can pop by and pay $10 by cash or check (or pay online and let us know) and get one of your
own! In all the chaos of the last week before Christmas, we hope you are able to find time for reflection, peace, and maybe even a little quiet. Continue to check in on your friends and fellow parishioners, because while the building may be closed, the church is open.
In Christ, The clergy and staff of Trinity Episcopal Church +
