Priority - Repair the Belltower - Goal: Raise $10,000
Trinity's building is a beacon of hope in our community.  From the outside, our bell tower lets our neighbors know the church is in their presence.  On the inside, our building provides safe, welcoming space for many ministries and community groups.  God has given us this building and we have a responsibility to care for it so that its future presence and use will be assured.   If we surpass our goal, we will begin other work in and around our building, including but not limited to replacing our over 30 years old air conditioner, funding plaster repair in the sanctuary and basement, and repairing the parking lot.   Designate "capital campaign" on your envelope.   If you have questions: talk to co-chairs of trustees (Amy and Steve), Finance (Victor).
Total to date:   $4,675.00

REMINDER - Wear your Christmas Sweater to Church Sunday
On December 16th, let's celebrate the holiday season by wearing your Christmas sweaters to church.  Dig one out of the closet or perhaps pick up something fun at the store.  Let's spread some Christmas cheer!

REMINDER - Christmas Caroling
On December 16th at 2:00 pm we will head to Agrace Hospice (5395 E. Cheryl Pkwy, Fitchburg) to Christmas Carol.  This is a little different than what we've done in the past, but an incredible opportunity for ministry.  We will bring a variety of songs, joyful & mellow and also religious and secular.  We are working with their volunteer coordinator to be forewarned of areas that may need extra care or preparation.  Please talk to Pastor Breanna if you have questions.  Sign up in the narthex. 

Volunteers Needed for Sunday Services for 2019
Still looking for a Volunteer for (a) Greeter and (b) Fellowship for 2019.  The first 3 months sign up sheets are in the Narthex.  Mel sent out to regular volunteers the Signup Genius for those 3 months of 2019 too, however please note that there are times that you may sign up for Signup Genius and by the time Mel gets in on that Tuesday or Thursday someone may have already signed up on the paper copy and she will end up notifying you.   Thank you for all your great volunteer services.
