The Property Committee is looking for a Chairperson to head The Property Committee for 2018.


I am looking for someone who is willing to take over scheduling of ushers and greeters. Please consider taking on this task as a way to serve your church. So far, I haven’t found anyone. If no one volunteers, I will be placing a sign-up sheet in the back of the church where people can sign up themselves. This will be similar to the way the lector schedule works. Sincerely, Ali Morrison


There are new sign-up sheets on the bulletin board for 2018 Bulletin, Communion Cup, and Candle Sponsors.  Please pay when you sign your name on the list.  There are cards available for you to fill out with your honorarium or memoriam and attach that with your payment.  Thank you in advance and if you have any questions please contact the church office at 668-4139.


There is a new lector schedule available in the Narthex for the months of December through March, thank you for your service in this very important role in our Trinity family.


2017 Financial Statements -There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex for those members who want a 2017 financial statement (record of your giving to the church).  For cost control reasons, statements will be printed only for those making this request.  These printed statements will be available by mid-January


The 2018 Trinity Committee list is in the Narthex; if you would be interested in being on a committee please sign your name on the list.  Thank you for serving.


“Trinity Dishcloths” make wonderful Christmas Gifts and are available for $1.25 each or 4 for $5.00 see Richard Hadesty Jr. if you are interested in purchasing some.


Hospitalizations:  If you or someone you know is hospitalized please call the church office at 570-668-4139.  Due to the HIPAA Law names are no longer published in the newspaper and we are not contacted by the hospital unless the patient requests it, when admitted, let them know you are a member of Trinity United Church of Christ. Also if you’ve added a name to the prayer list please keep the church office informed if the individual needs to be removed.  Thank you!
