PARISH NOTES: Week of December 1, 2019 

JOIN US TODAY IN TRINITY FOR A SPECIAL PRESENTATION –

“Let’s Talk about Diabetes” with Pamela Cross, Health Educator/Health Minister during Coffee Hour immediately following service. Sponsored by St. Monnica’s Guild.

Also, I’m trying to get to know the members of the church and would love to meet for lunch or breakfast or coffee and get to know each of you better!

BIBLE STUDY RETURNS THIS WEEK

Taize Prayer Service, 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary. Wednesdays during Advent. A contemplative prayer service coming from the Taize Community, an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity in the city of Taize, near Burgundy, France. Through the community’s ecumenical outlook, they are encouraged to live in the spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation. Come experience God anew in an ancient prayer service.
