Christmas in July at Trinity! During the month of July we will be hosting Christmas in July in the hopes of filling our food pantry. During the month of July we would like anyone who can to bring non-perishable food items to church and put under the tree. We will also have a container for monetary gifts as well. We will sing one Christmas Carol at each worship service also. We ask that you bring your Christmas spirit and sense of giving to help the food pantry. Wear your ugly sweater vest, Christmas tee, holiday earrings, and headbands - be creative. Let's have some fun without the cold and snow! Thank you, Diane Chicanavage
