On the First Sunday of Advent we begin a series called Entering the Season which will be offered at the beginning of Advent, Lent, and other seasons as a way for all generations at Trinity to deeply engage with the church’s seasons. These events are intended to provide you and your family with meaningful and practical ways to experience, learn about, and pray during these seasons.
After the 10:30 am Eucharist on December 2, we will share a meal and learn about the Season of Advent by building Jesse Trees. The Jesse Tree is a practice of adorning a tree with ornaments that represent the people, prophesies, and events leading up to Jesus’ birth. At this event, we will be making Jesse Trees for you to take home as you and your household engage Advent.
Everyone who plans to a trend is invited to bring a pot of soup to share for lunch. Please contact Sue Wilkins at email@example.com if you are willing to bring soup. Bread and drinks will be provided.
We hope you’ll save the date for the next Entering the Season as we prepare for Lent on March 3.

In the spirit of thanksgiving, all are welcome to join our Christian, Muslim, and Jewish faith communities to celebrate our diversity as well as our unity in a collaborative service of worship, song, and prayer. This year’s service is hosted by Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church and First United Methodist Church-Omaha and will be on Sunday, November 18th at 5:00 pm at Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church (2650 Farnam St).
