2018 Annual Parish Meeting

The Annual Parish Meeting will be held during the service on Sunday, November 18.  Vestry members will be elected during the service.  The office has received 3 nominations for the 2019 Vestry.  The current nominees are Emily Ferrell, Sharon Horner and Gus Bynum.

Nominations will be taken from the floor at the parish meeting.  If you have any questions concerning nominations, please contact the church office.

The Parish will also be electing delegates to the Annual Diocesan Convention to be held at Georgetown College Conference Center on Saturday, March 2, 2019.  Holy Trinity is allotted four delegates and two alternates.  The Senior Warden serving at the time of the convention will automatically be a delegate.  The parish will need to vote for five people.  The 3 nominees with the most votes will be delegates and the other two will be alternates.  The office has received the following names for delegates to the convention:  Lisa Estes-Cheatham, Corinne Trimble, Turner Summers with alternate nominations, John Worsham and Barbara Smith.

Immediately following the meeting/service, a Thanksgiving Potluck will be held at the Parish Hall.  There is a signup sheet for side dishes in the Parish Hall or you can call the office to sign up.  The Parish Office Staff will be providing the turkeys!  Make plans to come feast and see what Holy Trinity has been doing this past year!

Sharing Thanksgiving

Amen House Thanksgiving Baskets

Thank you to each of you that donated items for the Amen House Thanksgiving Baskets.  Nancy Leonard delivered many canned goods, non-perishable items and gift cards to the Amen House on Thursday, November 15.  All donations were appreciated.

Community Thanksgiving Meal

This year’s Community Thanksgiving Meal will be served in the Southern Elementary cafeteria on Wednesday, Nov. 21st from 6-8pm. The churches in the community have come together in the past to provide this meal, and it has been a great success. This year plans are to serve 500 people.

Our menu this year will be much like the past years’ menu: Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, rolls, desserts. For drinks, we will have iced tea, lemonade, water, and coffee.

Volunteers will sign up online to serve. We will have 1-hour shifts starting at 4pm and going until 9pm for which people can sign up. Space will be limited and it will be on a “first come, first to serve” basis. In order to accommodate as many people being able to serve as possible, people are being asked to only sign up for two 1-hour time slots to begin with. If there are open serving opportunities the week before the meal, people will be free to sign up for more serving time slots online.

If you would like to sign up to serve please go to the following link.  Everything should be fairly self-explanatory in terms of sign-up on the site.  You will choose the particular team and time slot that you desire.
