TLC Christmas Concert, Sunday, Dec. 2 at 4 p.m.

The TLC Church Choir and assorted guests will present a Christmas Concert on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 4 p.m.

The church choir and friends will present a selection of solos and duets, and then Benjamin Britten’s popular Christmas classic A Ceremony of Carols.

The choir and a soloist (our friend, Fumi Tagata) will sing this fascinating and vibrant piece accompanied by harp, played by Seattle harpist Alison Austin. We’ll have a dessert/snack reception following the concert. We’d love to have you bring a favorite snack to share. No admission — come and enjoy the music on this first Sunday of Advent, and start the season in style!

Checks are also being sent to several local, regional nonprofits plus CA Wildfire disaster relief and world hunger.

Local nonprofits include Helping Hand, Senior Resources of Island County, Good Cheer Food Bank, Gifts from the Heart Food Bank, Whidbey Island Homeless Coalition, and Hearts & Hammers, among several others. Trinity distributes about $250,000 throughout the year to charities.

Holden Village Summer Getaway with your TLC Family

Holden Village Summer Getaway with your TLC Family

Summer Vacation with Your Church Family!

Escape to Holden Village for a Summer Vacation with Your Church Family, July 29th – August 3rd (Monday – Saturday).

Holden welcomes all who seek contemplation and community in the remote wilderness of the beautiful Cascade Mountains. The isolation of the Village creates room for a unique way of life at Holden.

There is a great deal of freedom in deciding what you want to do when you are at Holden. Some people spend a lot of time outdoors exploring the wilderness area; others stay close by to take advantage of the outstanding program and educational offerings. You might want to try your hand at one of the many arts and crafts projects or spend time alone reading. We join together daily for worship, which is usually 20 to 30 minutes long.

During the summer months, the Narnia, Middle, and High School programs provide activities for kids ages infant to high school each day. All children & youth must come to Holden with a responsible adult.

Join Carol & Darrell Dyer, the first of Trinity’s Family to sign up for this trip!

Adults = $350; Ages 6-17 = $240; 5 & under = Free
50% Deposit Due December 1st

Cost includes food & lodging at Holden Village. Transportation to and from the village will be additional.

Speak with Amy at Trinity for more information, 360-331-5191 or AmyTLCYouth@gmail.com
