Welcome to Trinity

Twenty-Third Sunday
November 16, 2014
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

* CALL TO WORSHIP (by Sarah E. Weaver)
Rev. Penny Ford
Delight! Children of God, delight!
We are delighted to be here together; to worship as a family
and to be united in a common ministry.
We gather in worship to praise God and celebrate this community.
We celebrate the love that we have for one another, the support
that we offer to others and the journey we are on together.
We come together this day to delight in offering our gifts.
We delight in the gifts we are giving, the pledges we are
making and the future we are creating.
We join our hearts and our spirits today and delight in giving.
We are here! We are delighted! We are united!
Let us worship the God who loves when we delight in giving.
Let us worship God!
To God Be the Glory
Annette Watters
Dr. Kevin Chance, Piano
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom
the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
After the children’s choir sings, children ages four to second grade
are invited to go the Children’s Church with Ms. Sandy Wilson.
They are also welcome to stay in the sanctuary if they wish.
Nursery is provided for children three and under.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise God, all creatures here below;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Praise God, the source of all our gifts!
Praise Jesus Christ whose power uplifts!
Praise the Spirit, Holy Spirit!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Little Innocent Lamb
This is the word of God for the people of God.
Thanks be to God.

The “fall ball” season is over and Trinity
is proud of its co-ed softball team. Our
team won some and lost some, but no
other team had as much fun as we did.
The best thing about Trinity’s team was
its members. We had different ages,
races, skill levels, church membership
status and, of course, both men and
women. The players ranged in age from
the minimum age of 16 through people
in their 50s. Skill levels varied widely,
too. (The youngest were not always the
Everybody enjoyed encouraging
everybody else—no prima donas, no
sour pusses, no old grumps. Coach
Denise said, “Everybody contributed
and everybody was appreciated. In the
most important ways, we had the best
team in the league.”
Trinity anticipates participating in
PARA’s church league softball program
again in spring 2015. Get ready to play,
or come and cheer!

through Tuscaloosa One Place and all
children are between ages 0 and 8.

You will find a Christmas Tree in the
Narthex with an ornament with each
child’s name, sizes and wish list. You

the list. Please place the unwrapped
gifts in a box with your child’s
information on it along with a roll of
wrapping paper and tape and bring it
to the church at our Trinity Christmas
Party on Tuesday, December 2nd at

the toys in worship on Sunday
December 7 and will take all the boxes
