Christmas Eve Service
Pastor Boehme is asking for assistance with the Christmas Eve candlelight service.  He is in need of candle lighters, lighting control, usher, and other preparation duties.  If you would like to participate in the celebration of the coming of our Savior, please contact Pastor Boehme or the church office.  Thank you!

Thank you
Rev. and Mrs. David Habermas want to thank Trinity congregation for the lovely cake and thoughtful remembrance on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his ordination into the Lutheran Ministry.  Thank you so much!

No Bible Class
There will be no Tuesday evening Bible Class, December 5, due to the Women and Girls’ Tea event here at Trinity.  Bible Class will resume on Tues, December 12.

Jews For Jesus
Jews for Jesus will be at Trinity to give a presentation on Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles on December 10th.  It will start at 6:30 p.m.  This festival is mentioned in Exodus 34 and Leviticus 23.  As with all of the Old Testament, even this feast points to Jesus and what He has done to save us from our sins (John 5:39).  Come on the 10th and find out more.

The poinsettias that have been placed in the chancel have been purchased with a Thrivent Action Grant.

Can you Help Out?
We are looking for volunteer's to collect garbage and recyclables from around the church and offices for pickup on Monday's - garbage every Monday and recyclables every other Monday for the months of January, February, and first two weeks in March.  Please contact Bryce and Mollie Skaar to help out.  Thank you.

Family Christmas Activity
Families of all ages are welcome to come to church this afternoon, Dec 3rd at 4:00pm for cookie decorating, crafts, games, and dinner together.

Counters Needed
The Board of Stewardship is asking for volunteers to assist with counting the offerings in 2018.  Counters are scheduled for 2 separate months of the year and usually do the counting on Sunday after the worship service.  Counting typically takes about an hour to do.  If you are interested in serving in this way please contact a member of the board of stewardship - Todd Criswell, Ron Frauenshuh, and Barb Anderson.

Quilts for Sharing
The quilts on display on the pews in the sanctuary will be given to Christmas Sharing.  It's a joy to give these quilts as they are truly appreciated. Needy families can choose one quilt when they come to Christmas Sharing to do their shopping.  Thanks to all who have so generously donated the wonderful fabric. Also many thanks to the volunteers who donate their time for the sewing and tying to complete these quilts. You are a blessing to others.  LWML Mission Service

Advent Devotions
Advent devotions are in and we have options for adults and kid/family friendly devotions.  See the table outside the sanctuary to pick one up.  

Children’s Christmas Program                                                                                                                                               The Sunday School Children’s Christmas program will be held on December 17 at 10:45 am.  Come and hear the children tell the story of Jesus’ birth then join us for a potluck lunch afterward.

Winter Walk
Trinity will be having their hot cocoa stand for winter walk in Northfield again this year.  If you can help make hot cocoa or work the stand for an hour or so, let DCE Jackie know.  Dec. 7th, 5:00-8:00pm, in front of the Thrivent office by the library downtown Northfield.  

Christmas Cards Available
Christmas cards are now for sale in the fellowship hall.  Once again the boxes cost $5.00.  The money from the Christmas cards is used for purchasing DVD’s and books for the church library.  It is also used to purchase the assorted cards that are for sale.

Scrip Cards are Perfect Christmas Gifts
Trinity has many gift cards to choose from if you are looking for an easy last minute gift.  They make great stocking stuffers for anyone also.  You can find cards for many restaurants, gas stations, or department stores.  Stop by the table in the fellowship hall after worship on Sundays or you can get your cards in the office during the week.  If there is a card that we don’t carry regularly you can order it.  The cards take about 2-3 weeks to come in so you must order soon to get them in time for Christmas gift giving.  And the best part is - Trinity gets a percentage back from each card sold!
