Thank you to Bob and Barbara Yowell for the Thanksgiving centerpiece in the sanctuary. It was arranged and given to the glory of God and in honor of Katie, Rob and Dillon Crowe.

The congregation is welcomed to the baptism of Dillon Bernard Crowe at 11:00 worship on Sunday, November 30th.

Barium Springs (Giving Hope to Children and Families) is the special offering for November. This facility and its programs have been caring for NC children since 1891 when it was founded by two Presbyterian women. At present Barium Springs is operating on a monthly deficit of $300,000. Can you contribute to Barium Springs so these programs continue to give hope and care to NC children in need? For checks, note Barium Springs in memo line. Additional information is on the ministry table in the narthex. Thanks – Outreach Ministry Team

The PW (Presbyterian Women) Coordinating Team will meet today at 10:00am in the Trinity Classroom.

BBB (Bible Breakfast Bunch) will not meet Wednesday, November 26. We will resume our study of Matthew on December 3.

TAPC youth t-shirts have been designed by our youth and are pending production. They will cost $15, payment on delivery, and are available to teens and adults alike. For more information or to reserve one, email Tommy at tgrimm@trinityave.org. Orders will be accepted until the close of Monday, 11/24.
