Advent & Christmas

Angels Among Us
“Do not be afraid.”
The angels that appear in the story of Jesus’ birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags.
Their messages were often short and to the point — their favorite line being #DoNotBeAfraid.
As we look at the stories of these winged messengers to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and the Shepherds and their reactions to them, we will contemplate what messages we can offer that will counteract a culture of fear and bring #morehope, #morepeace, #morejoy, and #morelove to the world.

Join us for midweek worship at 6:30 PM on Wednesdays during the season of Advent. We will be singing the time-honored favorite, Holden Evening Prayer, with reflections by Voices in the Wilderness (TLCS' lay preachers).
Don't forget to stay after and join us for small group discussions on our Advent book, The Angels at Christmas, by Susan Robb.
Email our Minister of Faith Formation [firstname.lastname@example.org] for more information.
Trinity will offer three Christmas Eve worship services: Noon, 4 & 8 PM. The noon service is online only. After the noon premier, the service can be watched at any point. 4 PM will be in-person and family-friendly. The 8 PM service will be in-person and live-streamed!
The angels came to people like you and me. God worked through ordinary people and did extraordinary things. And so it is that God works through us every time we offer messages of hope, peace, joy, and love to an anxious world. We are called to fly in the face of fear — to be angels among us.
Christmas Day & Beyond.
Sunday, December 25 at 10 AM. On this Christmas Day, we are called to remember all those who may feel like strangers today — people who need our hospitality for their lives to be #more hopeful, #more peaceful, #more joyful, and #full of more love.
First Sunday of Christmas
January 1 at 10 AM. One last time in this series we hear the message #DoNotBeAfraid to get up and go — leaving those things that weigh us down and moving into the new year with new life.
Feast of the Epiphany
January 6 at 6:30 PM
Contemplative service of word & music commemorating the feast of Epiphany (“manifestation”), concluding the Christmas season with a celebration of God’s glory revealed in the person of Jesus Christ.
