Free Community Dinner Notes... Every Tuesday ~ Serving from 5:30-6:30 pm ... Ministering to the needs of the “un-employed” and the “under-employed” in our community, Trinity is working with other local churches to provide a “Free Community Dinner” to those who would appreciate the support. Dinner is served, every Tuesday, at Trinity. ... This coming Tuesday (11/17), parishioners of St Thomas the Apostle R. C. Church will be serving the meal. Salvation Army Bell Ringing & Children’s Winter Clothing Ministry Shoppers... ... Adults and Youth/Children (accompanied by an adult) are invited to “Ring the Bell” for Salvation Army. Last year, Trinity’s efforts (combined with other churches and service clubs of the community) generated over $17,000 which has assisted local families with the basic necessities of shelter, food, warmth. Please sign up in Trinity Hall for one of the available 2-hour shifts. on the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday of Thanksgiving Weekend at either the Giant Eagle or Save-a-lot Grocery Stores. Trinity’s “Local Children’s Winter Clothing Ministry” is being coordinated by Mary Ann Martz. This year, we have 30 children for whom to shop, and 23 shoppers have already signed up to serve. Shoppers will be provided with a list of necessities and sizes and can shop, at their leisure. Financial resources are provided through the congregation’s special offerings, fall foliage breakfast & food booth profits, and a Care in Communities Grant from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. See Mary Ann with any questions. ~ Please, team-up with a friend and put your faith into action ~


Worship & Music Ministries
Next Sunday ~ November 22 – “The Feast of the Christ the King”... ... This feast day celebrates the conclusion of the Church’s Liturgical Year, as we celebrate the ultimate glorification of Christ as his splendor and lordship is revealed to all creation... Please be sure to worship with us! ... Pr Tim Knauss, our newly-called Assistant to the Bishop of the Allegheny Synod, will be with us to serve as the preacher for the day. Pr Knauss (a graduate of Penn State and Trinity Seminary in Columbus, Ohio) served as pastor of St Matthew’s Lutheran Church, Martinsburg for the past 15+ years. Many of our youth know Pr Knauss from our shared travel to recent ELCA youth gatherings. In his new task with the Allegheny Synod, Pr Knauss primary focus is to work with congregations to enhance and develop comprehensive and effective outreach and evangelism ministries. Thanksgiving Eve ~ Join Us for a Special Evening Eucharist... Wednesday, November 25; 7:00 pm Parishioners and friends are invited to join us for a special Eucharist (The Church’s “Great Thanksgiving”) on the eve of this national holiday. Pass the word and extend an invitation to neighbors and visitors who may be coming home for the holiday weekend. And then... Sunday, November 29, is the First Sunday of Advent! Advent is the (4-week) season of the Church year that invites Christians to be a people who worship our Lord mindful of his promise to come again and draw all creation into the fullness of God’s reign. These days have long been practiced by Christians as days of preparation as we consider our lives and witness in light of our Lord’s ultimate and promised return. As we prepare our homes and communities for the celebration of our Lord’s birth through the coming weeks, so, during these days of Advent, we consider his call to us, his people, and we encourage one another to prepare our lives to greet him with a living and vibrant faith, active in love. Matins ~ Morning Prayer... Tuesday Mornings – 10:00 am The Office of Morning Prayer is a simple liturgy of readings, prayers, and canticles which invites us to give thanks to God in the morning hours as our day begins. Please join us, in Trinity Hall, and, if you can, stay for our weekly Bible Study which follows the liturgy. Vespers ~ Evening Prayer... Wednesday Evenings; 7:00 pm The Office of Evening Prayer has been a time of worship, traditionally sung as the sun was setting, since the 5th century. The brief liturgy is contemplative and marked by candlelight, melodic canticles (songs from the scriptures), prayers, and readings. For parishioners and friends seeking a time of serene and reflective corporate worship, this liturgy is renewing and fulfilling. Please invite a friend and join us.

Christmas Cantata Choir Rehearsals Continue~ Please Join Us! Meet some new friends and join your voice in this special “Christmas Choir”, which will sing “From Darkness Into Light”, an original composition by Terry Osman. We’ll sing the Cantata as part of the congregation’s Christmas Festival the Sunday afternoon before Christmas (December 20) and at worship the Sunday after Christmas (December 27). We’ll have weekly rehearsals, on Wednesday evenings, at 7:30 pm. See Terry or any of the musicians with any questions. Abbreviated Eucharists... Upcoming Gatherings: Sundays, November 29 and December 20; 12:30 pm These liturgies are celebrated approximately every 3 weeks in Trinity Hall and are kept to about 20-25 minutes. For those who find it difficult to get going in the morning, navigating around the nave, or for whom the lengthier hour (or so) liturgy is prohibitive, this is the perfect opportunity to be a part of corporate worship around Word & Sacrament.

And – this same weekend, the Sr High Youth Zone will be held in Pittsburgh, making our transportation much simpler. ... The Middle School and Sr High Youth will have some modest over-lap at the event, but the treks and the break-out groups will be kept separated for age-appropriate conversations and interests. ... So – whether you’re in Middle School or Senior High Grades – mark the calendar and plan to join us for a great weekend! Great Bands, Great Speakers, and A Great Time! ...

These presentations and discussions, led by Pr Short, will continue through early December. Please join us, in Trinity Hall.

Church Council Reflects on Natural Church Development Surveys... Natural Church Development assesses the health of congregations in light of 8 “Quality Characteristics. The results are intended to be used by congregational leadership teams to build and grow toward health.. The responses to the NCD surveys by 30 parishioners (taken in August, 2009) were reviewed by our Church Council this past week. We spent the evening discussing the results and used the material to discern directions for the development of Trinity’s ministries into the months/years ahead. ... The surveys indicated that Trinity is of above average health in 5 of the 8 areas. Trinity’s greatest strengths are to be found in our:  “effective structures” (which means we adapt well to address changing opportunities)  “gift-based ministries” (which means we tend to engage people in ministries which make good use of their skills and interests)  “empowering leadership” (which means that our leaders effectively engage others in leadership tasks)  “loving relationships” (which means that parishioners are supported by familial-like friendships with one-another)  “inspiring worship” (which means that worshipers sense a sincere encounter with God through the corporate liturgies of the church) ... The surveys indicated that Trinity is of rather typical health in 3 of the 8 areas:  “need-oriented evangelism” (which refers to our openness and skill at creating inroads for the local un-churched based on the needs of the community)  “holistic small groups” (which refers to the way we establish small groups to encourage supportive ministries and relationship)  “passionate spirituality” (which refers to the intensity of the commitment which parishioners have to the Faith and practicing the Faith with joy and enthusiasm ... The surveys indicated that Trinity was not “deficient” or “below average” in any of the 8 “Quality Characteristics”. ... What’s Next?... Over the next few months, and into 2010, our council, committees, and ministry teams will use this information to guide us in reaching out in ways which will be intentionally designed to build on our strengths as God-given assets and resources. We’ll also devote special attention to encourage growth in the life of our parish and individual families and parishioners through ministries intentionally designed toward issues of “need-oriented evangelism”, “holistic small groups”, and “passionate spirituality”. .... Once again, “thank you” to the 30 parishioners who completed the surveys this past summer. Your time and input is providing a valuable resource as we seek to coordinate faithful ministries to share with one another and this community in the Name of our Lord.
