 WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP

  This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

  This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

  The hour is coming, and now is, when true worshipers will worship the

  Father in spirit and in truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him.

  Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!  Give  

  thanks to him, bless his name!

      Gracious God, we gather today to worship and praise you.  Only you

      you love us by making our lives possible.  Every facet of our lives

      reflects your goodness and mercy.  Your only expectation from us is

      that we love you in response, and we want to do so.  Amen.

Opportunities and Announcements

Our Hanging of the Greens will be Monday, November 22, at 5:30pm.  Lots of help needed!

 

The Ronceverte Ministerial Association is planning a Community Christmas Tree Lighting in place of the Community Christmas Dinner on the lawn of the Ronceverte Presbyterian Church on Dec. 6 before the Christmas Parade.  There will be Christmas music and prayers.  Santa will be there before the parade for children to get their picture taken with him.  There will be chili, crackers, water, hot chocolate and cookies.  Everything will be at no cost.  Each church is asked to provide 6 crock pots of chili and 6 cases of water.  If you can make some chili or provide water, please call the church office at 304-647-4504.

 

We will have a Celebration Luncheon after church on Sunday, December 12, after worship to welcome our new pastors in their first year at Trinity and to get together during this holiday season.  The United Methodist Women will provide the meat and drinks.  Everyone is asked to bring a covered dish to share.  A sign-up sheet will be on the piano in the sanctuary.
