NEXT “FRED TALK” ON NOVEMBER 19:  On the third Sunday of the month, Trinity’s adults gather at 9:00am in the Fellowship Hall for refreshments and the next installment in our series of FRED Talks (Faith, Religion, Education & Discussion).  Come hear this month’s speaker, Mary Carol Pederson, who is co-founder and Pulaski County coordinator for The Call.  Every year there are 8,200 children in Arkansas foster care due to abuse or neglect, but there are only 1,600 families available to care for them.  The mission of The Call is to educate, equip, and encourage the Christian community to help provide a future and a hope for these hurting children.  So please join us on Sunday, November 19 in the Fellowship Hall for refreshments starting at 9:00am.  The talk will begin at 9:15.  Direct questions to Julie Price at 501-626-6477.

IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19:  David Bass will lead God’s Word for Children.  David Glaze and the Sanctuary Choir will present Jean Anne Shafferman’s Come, Give Thanks, and Sing.  Jeff Price will preach “Service Call” drawn from Joshua 24:1-25.  We will sing the hymns Come, Ye Thankful People, Come; For the Fruit of All Creation; and Let All Things Now Living.

BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR BABY JESUS ON DECEMBER 3:  All children 3 years through 5th grade are invited to attend Trinity’s annual Birthday Party for Baby Jesus.  Join us on Sunday, December 3, from 9:45am until 10:15am in the Fellowship Hall.  The party will follow the 9:00 to 9:45 rehearsal for the December 10 Christmas Program.  At the party, the children will enjoy an Advent preparation activity and birthday cake!  Please bring an unwrapped gift of children’s outer wear – mittens, hat, scarf, coat – to share with Partners for Progress of Perry County.  Direct questions to Julie Price at 501-626-6477 or email her at julietannerprice@gmail.com.

PASTOR’S CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE ON DECEMBER 3:  On Sunday, December 3, the Trinity congregation, friends, and family are invited to the home of Jeff and Julie Price (26 Heatherbrae Circle, 72223) following the 10:30 worship service for their annual Christmas Open House.  This is a relaxed time of fellowship and feasting in the pastor’s home.  If you would like to help Julie by preparing a food item, please contact her at 501-626-6477 or at julietannerprice@gmail.com.  Maps to the Price home are on the Narthex round table.
