THANK YOU for the 69 gifts you made possible for girls, boys, women, and men through Brunswick Family Assistance — Christmas Trees of Hope. These individuals will now have Christmas because of you! Be prayerful for these individuals as they receive their Christmas gifts.
If you are grieving for loss of child or grandchild, dealing with all the emotions, difficult questions, doubts and fears can feel overwhelming. The help and encouragement of others, especially from others who have been there, can be helpful. Beginning on Wednesday, February 5, Trinity United Methodist Church will be offering a Support Group that will focus on people who have lost children or grandchildren. The group will meet inTrinity's Church Library located on the second floor of the church building. It will be held from 10:00 am until noon. If you have any questions please contact Diane Sloan by email at or by phone, 910-368-6098.
Staff Christmas Gift
As in the past, the Staff Parish Relations Committee is offering an opportunity for the Trinity Church family to recognize our staff members with a monetary gift for Christmas. This is a perfect time to show appreciation for their efforts. We plan to distribute the gifts after the first of the year. Donations may be mailed to the church, dropped off with the receptionists Monday - Thursday between 9am and 3pm, or Friday 9 am and 12:00 pm or be placed in the offering plate on Sundays. Please make out checks to Trinity United Methodist Church. Please mark "Staff Gift" on memo line of check. The Staff Parish Relations Committee wishes everyone who worships at Trinity, the staff and the many, many volunteers a joyful and blessed Christmas.
