Messages and Opportunities

WELCOME to historic Trinity Arcadia, now in our 137th year of preaching the Gospel and serving the community.

LARGE PRINT copies are available for the asking.

TODAY’S ALTAR FLOWERS are given to the glory of God by Emilia Rennie in memory of Neil Rennie with thanksgiving.

OUR THANKSGIVING service is this Wednesday, November 21, at 7:00 p.m.  Yes, we know you are busy, but we hope not too busy to pause from your preparations to thank God for all your blessings.  As is our custom, the thanksgiving offering will be given to the Food Pantry.

YEAR B of the Lectionary Cycle, readings from the Gospel according to Mark, ends with the celebration next Sunday of Christ the King.  Do you know which Gospel is emphasized in Year C?  (It isn’t Matthew, Mark or John.)

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! THE CHILDREN’S ADVENT PROGRAM will be during our regular service on December 9, followed by a congregation-wide potluck lunch. The sign-up for the potluck has been posted on the bulletin board in the narthex. Please join us for the program followed by food and fellowship.

FAREWELL LUNCHEON for our departing friend and organist, Charlene Lang today after worship in the Fellowship Hall.  Everyone is invited!

AT THIS TIME of harvest, let us remind you  we continue our support of the Onekama Food Pantry that helps people who cannot always help themselves.  Non-perishable foodstuffs may be donated in the Narthex Food Pantry baskets.  Your generosity is always appreciated.

PASTOR RYAN TINETTI’S INSTALLATION will take place next Sunday, November 25 at 4 p.m.  Immediately following the service, we will gather as a congregation in the fellowship hall to celebrate over dinner. RSVP requested by today, Sunday, November 18. There is a sign up sheet in the narthex or you may email Chelsea Chapin at

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY continues on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m., using the book and DVD, He Speaks to Me, by Priscilla Shirer.  All Trinity members and friends are welcome to join in.

BOOK NOOK has been restocked.  Spend a minute…save a lot!

DO YOU HAVE OLD PHOTOGRAPHS OF OUR CHURCH before any of the construction and updates were made? If you do, please speak with Amanda Babcock at 231-299-7515.

LOVE INC OF MANISTEE COUNTY HAS A NEW NAME and a new look. As of Nov. 1, 2018 they became known as ECHO His Love (Everyday Christians Helping Others). This change became necessary because of changes within the home office. If you have been donating to them, the address remains the same at 525 Michael St, Manistee, MI 49660. We will once again be participating in the family Christmas adoption through ECHO His Love. If you or someone you know needs help giving their family a nice Christmas this year, there are registration forms in the church office for you to fill out. Once we receive a family name from ECHO His Love, we will have the tree with the names on it in the Fellowship hall.
