Christmas Hampers – During Advent, we revive our awareness that God has come into the world. We anticipate the arrival of the Messiah – a baby born to a carpenter and his wife in a stable. Jesus came for everyone without exception. As our Advent Outreach, we are preparing hampers to go to local families in need. You are invited to make a monetary donation – marking “hampers” on your envelope. If you know of someone needing support, please speak with Rev. Laura.

Church calendars are available at coffee time—$6.00 each!

Christ Church Trinity

Sunday Worship at Christ Church Trinity every Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Services at All Saints are on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.

Services are available at St. Peter’s in Windermere on the second Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m.
from June to October, and Christmas Eve.

 

Instead of teaching us how to do more (time management), God calls each of us to do less, and consequently, to receive peace and rest with God (time stewardship). Reversing time-warped living is about restoring our relationship with the Time Giver …  By doing less; we can have more of God.
