Beverages will be provided. If you are willing, you may bring food to share. Just prepare for a small amount, 1/2 to 1 dozen of whatever you wish. Feel free to bring it on or in something festive. It will go on the food table to share with everyone.
If you can, please bring a pair of mittens or gloves (children - adult sizes) to donate to Tomorrow's Choice.

The Board of Elders have placed large food barrels to collect food on Trinity’s Campus as part of a larger Good Samaritan effort to directly support our Waukesha Food Pantry. From now until 1/5/20, please bring your non-perishable, non-expired food items, a complete list of items are on the barrels, to help feed our @1200 hungry neighbors who come to the Pantry every week. Our Savior Jesus has told us: “Love one another” (John 13:34). Will you help Trinity help our neighbors?
Thanks for your kind support and please share this opportunity with anyone. This Thanksgiving and Christmas, let’s thank God for all our blessings and connect with our community with Christian love.
