We are buying 100 new warm blankets for our ITG friends this Christmas, at a very reasonable cost: $5.50 each! As the "local" part of our giving this Christmas, we will place tags for 2 blankets ($11.00) or 1 blanket ($5.50) on the tree. Please take a tag and remit the amount you choose either to Trinity or directly to Karen Peeler or Paula Redden. We will see that the amount is added to your donation record to Trinity! More than that, we will help our friends on the street or in minimal housing stay a bit warmer during the cold days this winter! Our Sunday School children will be making cards for them, and each blanket will be presented on Dec. 20 with a big red bow! Thank you for remembering ITG in your giving and support of the Trinity Giving Tree!

For peace in a war torn world, especially in Syria; Paris, Brussels, and the European Union. May God give us renewed compassion and greater courage to offer hope and help to refugees and all in need.
