The Vision of Trinity Church:
Whoever you are,
wherever you are on your spiritual journey,
you are welcome here.
One Night, One Star, One Child: Preparing our hearts for Christmas. Come to a prayerful Advent program on Saturday, Dec. 6, 9 am-12 pm at Trinity. Taking time now can result in many blessings at Christmas. All are invited.
COMPASSIONATE AMADOR - PARADE OF LIGHTS
On December 13, after a wonderful time of fellowship with the Missio Engage potluck and sing along, many parishioners will head to downtown to take part in the Sutter Creek Parade of Lights.
Compassionate Amador / Trinity, Sutter Creek, will have a float in the parade and we would love to have many people marching (or riding) together along the route.
Our theme (of course) is compassion. We will illustrate that by asking people to dress in a uniform or style that is unique to their occupation or lifestyle. So far we have a Priest, Colonel, Nurse, and business person. What about you? What would you like to see represented?
The only requirement is that in addition to your costume, each person must be "lighted." So find yourself some battery operated Christmas lights (or let me know if you need help getting some) and join the fun!
Trinity Episcopal Church brings the Charter for Compassion to Amador County. Please contact us if you would like a speaker or more information on this grass roots movement that is changing the world by restoring compassionate thinking and action to the center of religious, moral, and political life. http://www.trinitysuttercreek.org/page/compassionate_amador_you_me_us
When was the last time you attended a vestry meeting?
Are you interested in learning more about vestry or even considering joining this ministry?
Is vestry leadership a way you might be able to share your time or talent in 2015?
Please consider joining your vestry for a potluck dinner on November 20th at 6:00 pm. We'll enjoy a time of fellowship followed by our regularly scheduled vestry meeting. This meeting will include our annual mutual ministry, which is a time when your vestry members and Rector share their experiences of vestry leadership, their pulse of the congregational health, and more.
Please consider joining us to learn more, find out what is required of a vestry member, ask any questions you may have, then prayerfully consider whether vestry leadership is a call for you and whether you might be willing to answer that call.

The women's book study, AKA Ladies of the Lantern, will be finishing up The Hidden Power of the Gospels by Shaia at our last meeting of 2014 on Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 4:00 p.m. in Jane's Hall.
Ladies, you are most welcome to join us! Our purpose is to deepen our own personal understanding of our spiritual nature and our relationship with our Lord. In discussions, we share our individual life experiences, beliefs, questions. There is no judgment; everyone's responses are treated with the utmost respect.
We will meet next on Tuesday, January 13 from 3:30 to 4:30 in Jane's Hall, starting a new book: Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time by Marcus Borg. If you would like me to order a book for you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 267-5182.
Treat yourself to quality time when you can focus on your own spiritual nature!
