2010-2011 Flu season. We are not hearing the
‘hype’ over the flu that we heard last year, but,
that does not mean that the flu viruses
magically cannot threaten us this year. They
are still out there which means we still need to
make wise health decisions.
       Wash your hands after going to the
       bathroom, before handling food, and
       when you get home from work, school or
       play.
       Wipe off your shopping cart handle with
       the antibacterial wipes the stores are
       providing.
       STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK. BE                    Dear Members & Friends of Trinity ~

       GERMS.
       Cover coughs and sneezes.                        Thank you very much for all of the Christmas
       Consult with your PCP about the flu              cards, gifts and greetings. May the joy of our
       vaccine.                                         Lord’s birth fill you with joy this Christmas

                                                   The special Jehoiada Chest offerings for January will
                                                   be for the purchase of window blinds for the
        Youth Group Christmas Party
                                                   sanctuary. Blinds will be purchased for the lower

                                                   windows behind and beside the organ and the choir

               Sun. Jan. 9, 2011
                   6 – 8 pm                        Please remember that gifts to the Jehoiada Chest
                                                   must be above and beyond our regular giving.
           Cost is $7.25 per person                Although you may designate various purposes for
                                                   these special gifts.    Undesignated gifts will be
   Bring a White Elephant Christmas Gift           applied to the purchase of the window blinds.

      Please sign-up on the bulletin board         So far the congregation is responding quite well to
                                                   this effort. Regular giving remains above what was
                in the Narthex.
                                                   expected! It is a joy to know that our congregation
                                                   is responding so positively to this giving opportunity.

Sat. Jan. 1           Philippians 2:5-11              gave a tour of the food bank at St. Paul’s,
Sun. Jan. 2           John 1:1-18                     Vandergrift, and expecting to see shelves laden with
Mon. Jan. 3           Psalm 72                        food, I was appalled at the lack their of. I asked
Tues. Jan. 4          Exodus 3:1-5                    what one of the most requested items was and one
Wed. Jan. 5           Hebrews 11:32-12:2              of the ladies said, “Peanut butter.”

Sun. Jan. 9           Matthew 3:13-17                 not enough. I told both pastors I was at the point of
