The Jesse Tree 2020
There is a Jesse Tree this year but a bit different, the deadlines are earlier as the gifts must be quarantined at the church for two weeks before distribution. As you read this, the deadline for requesting items has passed, and now it is time for fulfilling those requests. Instead of a tree with tags, there will be a Sign-up Genius for parishioners to sign up for the items. When you click on this link
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0A48ADAD2DABFB6-trinity it will bring you to the signup. Select the item(s), then enter your name and email address (email addresses will not show). You can select more than one item if you wish. If you have any questions regarding the item(s) you sign up to fulfill, please contact Maryellen Yaroshefski (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Items should not be wrapped, and they may be dropped off at the church Monday-Thursday 10:30am to 1:00pm. There will be a box at the bottom of the stairs for Jesse Tree items. If you select a gift card, please place it in an envelope and drop it off in the Mission Committee folder outside Mother Judith's office. Please put a note on the item with your name so that the Mission Committee will be able to match up the item from the signup with the family requesting the item. The deadline for dropping off items is 3pm on Saturday, December 5th (there will be someone at the church on December 5th from 9 to 3 to receive items). Please note: You may drop off items this coming Sunday, November 22nd from 8am to 11:30am in the box at the church.
Thank you - Trinity Mission Committee
Family Advent Activity Basket
Advent—the 4 weeks before Christmas--is one of the most important and meaningful seasons of our liturgical year. This year we are beginning a new tradition for observing Advent with prayers, activities, and crafts at home. Sarah Prevelige is leading this initiative.
What is an Advent basket? It's a basket of four activities to do as a family. These include making your Advent wreath, a homemade special Advent Calendar, and fun DIY crafts. These crafts are unlike the usual kid crafts and require big kid or adult assistance for gluing, working with wood, candle making, painting, following directions, and patience. (Extra "goodies" and coloring pages may be included for families with young children.)
How do we know what to do? Each activity will be separately wrapped and numbered (no peeking). A list of additional supplies you may need will be included. Video instructions for each activity with examples and step-by-step guidance will be sent separately by email. All you have to do is carve out 30-45 minutes to sit as a family to construct, craft, laugh, and make memories as you are preparing for Christmas. Some may want to do them at the start of Advent, others may want to do one each Sunday/ weekend through advent as a way to start the weeks leading up to Christmas.
Are you interested? If so, the important part is HOW you sign up. It is important that we know how many in your family will be involved in order to make sure we have enough for everyone. It will also be important to include the ages of the young members of your family as we do have extra things to include for families with elementary school-aged children or older teens. Please email Sarah Prevelige by this Friday November 20th with the following information.
1. Your family name (ex The Smith Family)
2. The number of adults over the age of 18 participating (ex. 2 adults)
3. Ages of all children participating (ex. Ages 3, 7, 11)
4. Any special considerations (allergies to common craft supplies, no access to computer to play the instruction videos, etc)
5. Whether you prefer to pick-up your Advent basket or have it delivered (we will follow-up with the coordinating of this after the 20th).
Can you only participate if you have kids? No, every family can participate whether you have kids or not! These activities are appropriate for all and will produce advent and Christmas related items that you can use/enjoy time and time again. So reach out to Sarah Prevelige: email@example.com
Creation Care Tip of the Week: Don’t shop till you drop
Do I need it? Can it be recycled? Is there a more environmentally friendly option? Am I making the best use of what I already have? Can I share from my bounty with others and give rather than acquire?
