Thank you to all who attended our annual meeting on Sunday. We passed the budget, acknowledge the extraordinary leadership of the outgoing church council members, discussed the coming year and voted in a council for next year. Minutes from the meeting will be available soon.
We have a new newsletter for autumn/advent. You don't want to miss two great stories (by Roxy and Barbara) about growing up at First Trinity! Read it here.
On this final Sunday of the church year our gospel is Jesus' great story of judgment. In the end, the faithful are those who served Christ by ministering to those who are poor, hungry, naked, sick, or estranged. In the first reading God is the shepherd who seeks the lost, weak, and injured and feeds them with justice. We gather this day to celebrate the reign of Christ and his victory over death, yet awaiting the consummation of all things yet to come. Acknowledging Christ as our merciful ruler, we go forth that his reign may be known in our loving words and deeds.
Readings: Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24, Psalm 95:1-7a, Ephesians 1:15-23, Matthew 25:31-46
Happy Birthday this week to Claudia! Since we've had so many birthdays in November, we'll be celebrating with Cake after worship this Sunday.
Can you believe it's Thanksgiving already!?
Give Thanks and share a meal with friends, family and community members at First Trinity. We are shooting for dinner at 5:00 but will be at the community center for cooking and fellowship from 11-7, so come by anytime!
