The presence of the Lord “in your midst” in the wonder of the holy supper is cause for singing. The nearness of the Lord in prayer, in every circumstance, is cause for rejoicing. The coming of one “more powerful” than John, even with his winnowing fork in his hand, is good news—and cause for exultation—for us who are being saved. Great joy is the tone for the third Sunday of Advent.
Readings: Zephaniah 3:14-20, Isaiah 12:2-6, Philippians 4:4-7, Luke 3:7-18
We had so much fun on Tuesday night, when Santa stopped by God's Closet! See all of the fun on our Facebook page or watch the slideshow here.
Armour School Craft Fair
First Trinity will have a table this Saturday, December 12, at Armour Elementary's First Holiday Craft and Vendor Fair. All proceeds from our table will support support the mission and ministry of First Trinity.
We encourage all of you to come by and shop! The fair is Saturday, from 9 am - 4 pm at Armour Elementary, 950 W 33rd Place.
If you are interested in donating some crafts to our table, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call/see Rene. If you want to help staff the table, even for an hour or two, that would be awesome too! Set up begins at 7 am, and we will need the most help during set up and clean up.
This should be a fun day to shop local vendors, meet some neighbors and help the school and church! Hope to see you there!

All Are Welcome!
There is so much going on in December, we thought a calendar would help!
One of our efforts in the coming year is to get more people involved in the financial stability of the church. I have to say, we are off to a great start! Santa raised a few bucks for the church last Tuesday, and we are looking forward to the vendor fair at Armour this Saturday. If you have an idea for a small fundraiser, talk to Rene (in the office).
We also need to create a list of volunteers that would help staff rentals in the community center. These shifts could be anywhere from 2-10 hours, and can be split up. If this is something that you are interested in learning more about, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll give you the details.
Thank you for your continued commitment to First Trinity. Those who give their time, talent and treasures are a true blessing to our community. Thank you!
