giving sunday a great success!

From Michelle Peranteau, co-chair of the Generosity Committee:

Growing in Faith Together! The Generosity Committee thanks you for a wonderful Giving Sunday at Holy Trinity. We appreciate those who were in church and turned in their Giving Form as well as those that sent their forms in advance of the service. And it was so good to gather after worship for a potluck with many yummy dishes provided by our fellow members. 

Having insight into our congregation’s giving commitments allows us to effectively plan for 2023. So if you haven’t yet turned in your Giving Form, we would appreciate your doing so in the coming weeks. You are welcome to send it to the church office or bring it to church and give it to Pastor Tim.

wreath-making and carol-singing!

On Friday, December 9 our annual wreath-making event returns to Holy Trinity starting at 5:00 p.m.

• Come help create the handmade wreaths that hang in our sanctuary - no experience required, and plenty of encouragement provided!

• We'll share a potluck meal together, too! We'll provide a main course, and you can bring snacks, sides, salads, or beverages to share.

• NEW! As the wreath-making comes to a close, we'll transition into a Christmas singalong in the Community Room led by Austin Philemon and Pastor Tim. While it might not be as racuous as Pastor Tim's former Beer & Carols events (or will it?) it'll be a great chance to get in the holiday spirit!

We will officially start at 5pm, but we won't wrap up around 8:30 or 9 p.m., so come when you can, and stay as long as you can! Use the red door at the corner of 65th and Central Park West (labelled 1 W. 65th) and head downstairs to the Community Room from there.

christmas tree delivery and decoration

BONUS event! Want to help prepare the way a little more? Four 10' Christmas trees are being delivered to Holy Trinity on Thursday, December 8, and it takes a LOT of work to get those up and decorated! If you can spare a couple of hours on Thursday afternoon, ask Pastor Tim for the deets!

christmas music & greens for 2022

Holy Trinity has a rich tradition of decking the halls, well, decorating the nave, altar and church doors, as well as beautiful music during Christmas Eve services. And we would love your help and support this year to make it happen. The Christmas trees, wreaths and garland cost $2,000, and the musicians and singers cost $3,000 - so we invite you to consider a special gift to help defray the expenses to Holy Trinity. You are welcome to give in celebration or in memory of loved ones or just because!

Donation forms will be included in the Sunday bulletins in the coming weeks; or you can click here: and give directly to the 2022 Christmas Music and Greens fund!

We thank you for your consideration and your generosity!

A blessed Advent and Christmas season to you all,
The Generosity Committee
