Trinity’s Christmas Eve Service promises to be a wonderful one, as it always is. Please tell us how we can make sure you get to see the Trinity Christmas Eve Worship. We do not want anyone to miss it. How can we make sure that happens? We need your help in letting us know what you need.
Currently we may access our recorded services on Facebook, our website and on You Tube at ‘Trinity Parkland’. We also produce a handful of DVDs each week which are delivered to a few people in assisted living where there is a DVD player available. And finally, we offer an in-person screening of the service each Sunday morning in the sanctuary.
Are you somebody who would enjoy having a DVD who currently does not get one? If so, please let us know. Call us at the office. Would you be able to attend an in-person screening? What time would work for you? Call us at the office. We could arrange a private viewing of a DVD at Trinity anytime during the week, just for you. Let us know. Call us at the office! We don’t want anyone to miss Christmas Eve at Trinity.

CONNECT for Youth
Connect gatherings are being held via Zoom at 12:30 pm on Sundays. These sessions are led
by Kiah Miller, a member of our Trinity community and junior at PLU! We look for her to
bring excitement to the youth in this new way of “connecting”. Plan on participating!
Interested people should email Kiah Miller at [email protected].
Trinity continues to plan and hold only essential functions in compliance with the updated governmental Covid-19 guidelines. As Pierce County and Washington State numbers of infections and deaths increase, Trinity’s precautions have also increased. Watch for further updates via Trinity’s Weekly News and/or email notices. If you do not currently get Trinity’s electronic Weekly News or email notices, please contact Pat at [email protected] to request that your name and email address be added.
Thank you for continuing to wear a mask when in public and for following Trinity’s requests for compliance with recommendations.
During the first eight days, Trinity Food Pantry distributed ninety-six (96) “holiday meat
gifts” to the community. We will continue providing these through December 20th. All of
this is possible thanks to your donations!!! Several of the volunteers donated supplies
so that we could add stuffing, gravy, rolls and an Almond Roca treat to the gifts. …and a
special thanks also to QFC for enabling us to purchase the meats at a reasonable cost!
So many blessings!
The Food Pantry is in need of EGG CARTONS!!! Just drop off at church or
leave by the door.
The socks, gloves, and hats plea continues through December. The weather has turned
cold. Let Trinity provide the warmth that so many families need right now.
You can give chickens, goats, sheep, partial or whole farm collections,
clean water projects for families or villages, plus many other gifts to
meet the needs of so many around the world.
Christmas gifts are here
Remember ELCA’s Good Gifts
