JOIN US FOR EPIPHANY WORSHIP
All are invited and welcome!

ANNUAL CONGREGATION MEETING
Please mark your calendars and share with fellow congregation members that our annual congregation meeting is scheduled on January 28th, 2018 after 9:30am Worship.  Post card reminders have been mailed, please notify the secretary, Liz, if you did not receive a post card to ensure your address is documented for next year.

SOUPER BOWL AND OPTIMISM SUNDAY
 Join us on Sunday, February 4th to join our Annual Souper Bowl and Optimism Sunday!  Each year it is custom for Trinity to have two kettles placed in the narthex representing the two teams playing in the Super Bowl.  The congregation is asked to place a gift in the kettle of the team they believe will be the winning team.  This year's collection will be sent to the City Mission of Buffalo.  It was felt that this offering might help to continue their mission of feeding the hungry, giving shelter to the homeless, and offering warmth to those out in the cold.
As part of this day we are thankful for the good things God has brought to us and are optimistic that He will continue to shower us with goodness.  Even though the Buffalo Bills aren't playing in this years Super Bowl we can also be optimistic for the team when they play again later this year!



NEW CHALLENGE!!
For several years now Trinity has supported Grace Ministries in Ile A Vache, Haiti. In 2018 we plan to continue that support in a new and exciting way.  We will pledge 3000$to cover the cost of a Pastor and Music leader, of Grace ministries churches, toward their mission work in Haiti.  3000$can go a long way in Haiti. Stay tuned for more details but please plan to support Haiti in the Year to come!

SUNDAY SCHOOL PROGRAM
Thank you to the Sunday school students, teachers and musicians for the wonderful Sunday school  program entitled, “We Are Not Too Old to Learn”, presented during the January 7, 2018 Worship service.  It is a story of how a few young carolers can teach an old Scrooge type man about Christmas through song and scripture.  The congregation enjoyed the musical talents of Sunday school students that played their instruments adding to the program.  Special thank you to David Hofmeier that created this program.  All were delighted to celebrate the birth of our Savior, with goodies for everyone and gifts for the students after the program.

PAJAMA COLLECTION FOR ROSWELL
The Trinity Sunday school students collected pajamas, all sizes, for Roswell Park  from December through January 7th.  Additional info to follow on the completion of this collection.
