them with or without an order by the following Sunday November 24th for re-distribution. Final ordering date will be Sunday

Bells! Bells! -- Lets play some
bells! (And drums, and guitars, and other stuff) Next Thursday, November 21
from 6:30 - 7:30 we will have a meeting to re-establish our bell choir and play
some music. Part of the hour will be spent just getting to know each other and
talking about the desired direction for the choir moving forward. I have no
preconceived ideas of what I think it should be or do. I just know that bell
music is beautiful, and we should add it back to worship!Choir
rehearsal will also be on Thursday nights beginning the 21st at 7:30. There
will be some coffee and tea to enjoy as we share music and fellowship. Come out
and sing a little, ring a little, or just enjoy being at Trinity. There is no
long term commitment. You don't need to guarantee you'll make every rehearsal,
or play and sing perfectly. You just have to have the desire to share music at
whatever ability level you possess.I'm also looking for guitar players, and maybe
some percussion, brass, woodwinds, etc ,etc.

Mission Possible- Over the
years, our mission trip teams have helped at various sites, repairing and
rebuilding homes for families affected by floods/hurricanes and tornadoes. West Virginia
is still in need of assistance rebuilding after massive floods in 2016 and they
have recently received grants to help support their restoration. If you are
interested in being part of a work team in the coming year, please contact Lynn
Chialastri at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with her on Sunday morning.
No work experience is necessary – _only willing hands and hearts. However, if
you do have handyman or specific repair skills, we can surely use you to teach
the rest of us!

Our New Seminarian —We officially welcome Vicar Rebekah Nelson as our 2019-2020 field education student. Vicar Rebekah is in her first year at United Lutheran Seminary, after serving 12 years in the United States Marine Corps. She is currently serving in the United States Army Reserve, which means that one Sunday a month, she will be with us in spirit as she serves. Upon completion of her seminary degree and first call in a congregation, Vicar Rebekah hopes to continue to serve in active duty as a U.S. Army Chaplain. We are grateful for your presence with us, and for your service to our country, Vicar Rebekah! Welcome.
A field education student serves for 8-10 hours a week, with the intention to help the student move from lay leader-ship into a pastoral role. A typical week includes Sundays at Trinity, and supervisory sessions with Pastor Skyle on a regular basis. The field ed student is not a full-time intern or part-time co-op student (as Vicar Micah was.)
